Details

Some product history and notes:

  • The reason silicone was chosen as the material is purely from a cleanliness point of view, the gaskets are neutral and do not have any smell or taste  
  • They do not bake hard so removal is easier
  • No need to crank the portafilter tight in the machine as you would a hard EPDM, NBR or HNBR rubber (the industry standards) gasket
  • Always use a silicone lubricant such as food safe white grease. Silicone does not like petroleum based grease 
  • When installing do not use a sharp screwdriver to push them in, the silicone will break. Use the portafilter with the basket removed to install  
  • All batches are tested, the manufacture use FDA approved silicone and have them independently tested in Hong Kong

Works great! I prefer these silicone gaskets to rubber ones because the material is more durable. Make sure you know if your particular group requires the the 8mm or 8.5mm. The thickness of the gasket will determine how far the portafilter turns to lock. Because portafilters and groups will slightly differ between manufacturers or because of wear of the metal "wings" of the portafilter from a heavily used machine, the gasket thickness will matter. I was unsure off hand and was unable to find out, so I purchased both.

They work great, last a long time, and are easy to install. Lost one star because when they're brand new you have to be sure to lock in the portafilters very tight or it might pop out mid-shot.

Great gasket replacement alternative. I have been using the Cafelat for years and it has always worked well with my setup. Great quality and fit.
