I don't wash it in the dishwasher, so haven't had any problem with it discoloring. Not sure why you'd want to wash it in a dishwasher anyway, it's easy to hand wash. Reqlly, since it's coffee grounds, I just wipe it off with a towel and haven't washed it.
I rate this 5 stars and highly recommend it!
The unit measurements stated 2" top diameter x 2 1/4" bottom diameter (50mm and 60 mm)
It is nicely weighted and clearly made from cast mold (you can see the ridges) with an alloy metal (aluminum coating, I guess)...
so that means...
ONLY HANDWASH it or it will look ugly tarnished after it comes out of the dishwasher.
When I use it, it only needs a quick wipe down from the bits of espresso grind- it has never been sullied up to need more than a soapy wipe and quick splash of water after I first got it.
This is your basic tamper beyond the plastic tampers. It looks good and works well.
If you need a weighted tamper for pressing your grind into it's basket this looks good and serves it's purpose IF it has a snug fit for your espresso grounds basket. So check your espresso machine grind basket measurements so you can get what you need and not have a "misfit".
Nice value, it does what it should... packs the espresso grind down nicely, fits snug into the basket of my espresso machine, so the machine can do it's thing.
The De'Longi's built-in plastic "tamper" might work for leveling your grounds, but it would be almost impossible to tamp with. It's permanently attached to the machine, so you would have to press the basket UPWARD against it with the proper force (40 lb., according to some sources) without tipping the machine over.
Instead, I've been using this tamper for the last five months, and it works beautifully. Others complained of plating flaking off, revealing a dull cheaper metal. I've had no flaking. I don't know if it's plated or solid metal, (manufacturers have been known to improve their products in response to complaints) but my tamper looks as shiny and new as the day it arrived. Given others' complaints about it not being dishwasher safe, I haven't been fool enough to risk putting it in the dishwasher when it's so easy to hand-wash. I wipe it with a clean, dry towel after each shot, so it doesn't need washed that often.
Regarding claims it does not fit the De'Longhi EC155: the De'Longhi's portafilter has an I.D. of 52.5 mm. The smaller end of this tamper has a diameter of 50.1 mm. This means a difference of 2.4 mm. Subtracting the engineering tolerance for a loose running fit (.32 mm at this diameter) we get 2.08 mm. Divide by 2 to get the radius, and we get a 1.04 mm ring of grounds around the tamper. Even if the sides of the portafilter were straight all the way to the bottom, (They aren't, there's a step halfway down, with 4mm difference in the diameter of the top and the bottom.) some of the vertical force would be transmitted laterally against the sides, applying an equal force to all but the top 1 mm or so of grounds. So you have a ring of less compressed (but not uncompressed) grounds about 1 mm wide and 1 mm deep. The finer the grind, the deeper the tamper sinks into the portafilter. It sinks 1-2 mm at espresso grinds, so you'd have this 1 mm ring of less compressed grounds sitting ON TOP of a 50 mm puck of more compressed grounds. If water follows the path of least resistance, any water flowing along the outer edge will tend to flow away from this ring, toward the empty space in the middle.
So you've got at little loose coffee siting on top of a perfect puck. How much? Given an average density coffee, (641 kg/m^3) about 0.1 g. I'm enough of a coffee snob to weigh my beans, not just scoop them. My coffee scale weighs to 0.1 g. That's about the weight of one coffee bean.
