We're often asked to compare the Quick Mill Andreja Premium to other brands & models - especially Rocket. Today, we put the Andreja to the test & compare it to the most comparable models, including those from Rocket Espresso Milano. You wanted a Quick Mill Andreja Premium vs Rocket and now you've got it!
Let us begin by quickly going over the main features of this beauty from Quick Mill.
You'll be brewing and steaming in no time - at the same time! Heat exchangers not only ensure thermal stability (a vital component to making quality espresso on a consistent basis) but they allow the user to both brew and steam at the same time.
Typically, a vibratory pump will mean louder operation. The vibratory pump on the Quick Mill Andreja Premium contains pulsar designed to reduce the noise level. In addition to this feature, the pump contains thermal overload protection to prevent the machine from overheating increasing the lifespan of your espresso machine.
Built to last, wrapped to keep the noise level down. Copper boilers will extend the life of your machine. An insulated boiler will reduce noise. Unlike some of it's single boiler, heat-exchanging competitors, like the Rocket Appartamento, the Andreja Premium is much quieter.

Neither machine contains PID temperature control but does this matter?
The Andreja Premium certainly is more machine for not much more money (+$145). The biggest benefits will be the insulated boiler for a quieter operation, dual gauges (believe me, this is nice) and the pulsar technology.
What we love about the Appartamento is the size & appearance - the thing is gorgeous and will fit anywhere. Those copper/white panels, though - HOT!
Usability - we'll call this a draw as each machine is incredibly easy to use and get the hang of. It's worth mentioning that the Andreja Premium can also be fitted with joysticks instead of the standard knobs.
$1,695 vs. $1950-$1995

We sell plenty of both of these models and in all honesty, no one is complaining about the choice they made. Rocket people love their Rocket, Quick Mill people love their Quick Mill.
If you're someone who makes drinks one after the other often (dinner party, large family, etc) seriously consider the Andreja Premium as it has a larger drip tray. Other than boiler size, the Type Vs contain PID while the Andreja doesn't. This is a great feature allowing you to adjust boiler temperature with the touch of a button.
