Product Description

Maintaining an espresso machine can not only extend the life of the machine but also provide more consistent and flavorful espresso. One of the most common ways of cleaning the screen and group head is to backflush the machine with a small amount of cleaner. In order to perform this cleaning you will need a blind filter or backflush insert for the portafilter. Espresso Supply offers the Metal Backflush Insert (02070-STD) which fits all 58 millimeter portafilters for cleaning. Backflush cleaning is recommended for commercial espresso machines with a three-way valve.

As the item description states, this blind basket will fit into a 58-mm (commercial size) portafilter. In my case, it fit perfectly in a Gaggia New Baby 2006 portafilter. I attempted to backflush my machine and did worked! In my case backflushing does not appear to be necessary because only clear liquid came out and there didn't appear to be any build-up behind the shower screen (though there are many who will argue otherwise). At $4 I believe the cost is really reasonable even if I never use it on the Gaggia again, I can still probably use it on any other 58-mm portafilter machine.

Note: Remember that you can only backflush a machine with a 3-way valve. If you are unsure of whether your machine has one or not I would strongly recommend finding out before buying this and possibly damaging your machine!

Works great! My Gaggia was performing really poorly. Between using a proper decalcifying agent (Cafiza) and this device, which forces the machine to do a backflush, it got back to new! I had tried a hack (using a piece of rubber cut to the regular filter cup) but this definitely works better! Note, this device can be used only on machines that accommodate the back flashing! Back flushing is only for Gaggias or other machines with a 3-way solenoid (e.g. The Classic and some Babys). Do not attempt to backflush machines that do not have a 3-way valve. Gaggias with a 3-way valve have a drain of some sort into the drip tray.

This portafilter insert worked quite well to backflush my gaggia classic. Fit the portafilter well, and made a good seal against the group head gasket, which is important if you are backflushing.

Once again I got exactly what I needed from Amazon and it was cheap and arrived super fast too...I Love Amazon! This blind basket is a perfect fit for the portafilter of my Nuova Simonelli Oscar and it makes it easy to keep Oscar clean with daily backflushing. This is a must have if you want your machine to last and to make delicious espresso shots. Buy it now!

Yup, awesome product. A must for back flushing your espresso machine. Perfect fit to my Gaggia Classic portafilter. I use this with Cafeza cleaner with great results.

Why doesn't this thing have any holes? Takes forever to pull a shot!

Just kidding. Fits fine into a Rocket E61 bottomless and allows thorough backlashing. I use a rubber insert daily to do maintenance backflushes, and this thing for the weekly "serious" backflush.

A necessary accessory.

This worked wonderfully in my 15 year old Gaggia Classic. I can't believe how much better it's performing after watching a video on Youtube to see how to backflush the machine and another video to see how to descale. Highly recommend this product.
