I have an 18, 20 and 22g ridgeless VST basket that does not fit in this portafilter. The smallest 18g one actually does fit, but when espresso is channeling it gets caught on the ledge and runs along the outside rim, and down the handle.
On the other hand, the basket that is included works perfectly, but I would rather use my ridgeless baskets.

Very high quality. Bottom is completely chrome plated so it won't mar your grinder fork or tamping surface. Only negative I've noticed is that the bottom isn't cut wide enough to accommodate a LM triple basket completely. I don't use LM triples anyways so it's a non issue with me. Easily fits all other baskets I own including Synesso 18g ridgeless triples.
