E61 regret July 29, 2018
Reviewer: Todd McCain from Mill Valley, CA United States  
The customer service with Chris's coffee was great but I regret buying this portafilter.  Another reviewer referred to the ears not being machined correctly and I agree. Occasionally I'll get some leaks to the outside of the portafilter when I'm brewing espresso. I managed to get a mild burn by unintentionally holding onto the portafilter while leaning away from the machine a bit thereby applying some pressure on the portafilter. This caused hot espresso to run outside the portafilter down the handle and on my hand. That never happened with my prior portafilter that came with my machine. I'll probably throw this one out and go back to using my original one. I do feel like the ears are not a good fit for my machine and I'm just jamming it in there to get a good brew and may be causing some damage. It does appear to be very well constructed, just poorly designed.

Stainless for my Silvano February 5, 2018
Reviewer: Leo from Sunnyvale, CA United States  
The plating on my old portafilter was wearing through exposing the lead-bearing brass, so I'm thrilled I could replace it with stainless. It fit my Silvano and existing baskets. The spouts are nicely designed for easy cleaning. I'm completely satisfied.

Not the best fit for all E61 grouphead November 28, 2017
Reviewer: Joseph Stagliano from Poughkeepsie, NY United States  
This is a well built portafilter and pairs well with VST Precision Insert baskets.  However the ears on the portafilter are thicker than stock and do not allow proper alignment when engaged in E61 Group of my Quickmill Vetrano 2B.  Changing to a thinner group gasket helped allow the portafilter handle and spout line up closer to the 6 o'clock position (now at 7 o'clock), still not as well as the stock portafilter but workable.  The portafilter ears are not only thicker than stock but are also very sharp from the manufacturing process and required to be filed to avoid damaging the grouphead.  I am comfortable making these adjustments to get it to work but would have preferred to have it correct out of the box.
