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 flash (defined below) is too prominent. It interferes with the sides of the filter cup which is very slightly tapered. The cup has marks for double and quadruple shots. Because of the flash, the tamper will not reach the double shot mark. Basically, I can only make quadruple shots.
Considering that it would drive up the price if they took the time to debur each tamper or improve their cast, I'd leave this product as-is. It's a solid 4.5-star product.
If you're in the market for this size tamper, I recommend this. If the flash bothers you, you can do what I did and hand-finish it yourself. It's just aluminum, so you can knock down the flash with a steel file.
From Wikipedia: Flash, also known as flashing, is excess material attached to a molded, forged, or cast product, which must usually be removed. This is typically caused by leakage of the material between the two surfaces of a mold (beginning along the parting line) or between the base material and the mold (in the case of overmolding). Molding flash is seen when the optimized parameter on cull height is not calibrated. Proper design of mold parting surfaces can reduce or eliminate flash.
