Hi, I think you recommend this bottomless portafilter for profitec machines but what about filter baskets? I understand the bottomless portafilters don't normally come with filter baskets. Does the standard double shot basket for profitec machines also fit this portafilter? Do you sell a 3 shot basket that will fit this filter? Also, is this the best bottomless portafilter for the profitec machines or are there others you recommend? Thanks
The standard double filter basket from the Profitec machines will fit this portafilter and it can be used with the Pro 500 or Pro 700. We do sell a 21 gram (triple shot) basket for this item but it is not available through the site. If you contact technical support at 1-888-411-5282 option 3 they can set that up for you.
Can be used in ECM Classika PID or in Bezzera BZ10? Thanks
While this portafilter has been tested to fit ECM brew heads (including the Classika II PID), it tends to sit somewhat differently than the stock portafilter handle. Simply tighten it until firm.
It does not fit the Bezzera or Pasquini brew heads, however. Those manufacturers use a portafilter with the retaining teeth offset by 45 degrees, making secure attachment nearly impossible.
Does this come with a basket?
With all Bottomless Portafilters, expect them to ship without filter baskets. manufacturers have been known to occasionally include them, but none have been consistent.
I have a Rancilio Silvia V3 with standard portafilter. I just got a La Marzocco strada triple basket and I know I need a bottomless portafilter. I was wondering if this portafilter would work with such basket or should I get a different portafilter that would fit Miss Silvia.
It will fit and works well.
