LELIT GLENDA PL41PLUS-T - SINGLE BOILER WITH PID
The Lelit Glenda (PL41PLUS-T) with PID is a home espresso machine with a commercial grade 58 mm grouphead and a 1200 watt heating element to ensure fast warm up times, encased in a very solid and high-quality polished stainless steel container. While the grouphead is not an E61, it uses thermoblock technology to keep the temperature of the grouphead stable. This is another solid entry level machine from Lelit.

- It is strongly recommended that you acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher to avoid electrical damage to the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressurstat or the wiring inside. Any damage to these components are not considered a manufacturer's defect.
- To increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, you should be using softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these waters create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as limescale.
- We do not recommend descaling this machine unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. Too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine hastening replacement.
- Heavy Metals Migration:
- The upper part of the boiler, is made of CW510L alloy (OT57-free-lead brass), having the 0,2% max. of lead (value within the limits approved according to the DIN 50930-6 regulations), and the lower part is made of OT58 brass but a chrome surface processing (Stecrhome type- NSF regulation conformity) is performed, to reduce the lead migration.
- The fittings are in brass with nickel treatment, and the s. valves are made of brass OT58 – “CW617N”.
