After years of contently using the plastic tamper that came with my Gaggia Classic I finally decided to purchase something better. I have seen and used many kinds of tampers over the years and have come to believe that this Rattleware tamper is the best value on the market. The need to spend more on a tamper is incomprehensible to me. This is as good as it gets and for a reasonable price.
There are many tampers on the market, but at about this price point and this size there are not too many options. Most cheaper ones are not available in the 58mm size, and the correct size is important for it to be a worthwhile purchase otherwise you might as well stick with the plastic tamper that came with your machine. One alternative for a 58mm tamper for about $8 less (a larger percentage less) is a Chinese made acrylic handle model that is sold just about everywhere, but none of the sellers (amazon sellers, espresso specialty web sites, and a famous auction web site) could confidently state the actual size of the Chinese made acrylic handel tamper ("says 58mm but actual size 54" one seller commented). Most other tampers cost more than this Rattleware by either a little or a lot. I had not seen this one in person before making the purchase but took a chance on it after reading many positive reviews. I could not be more pleased. Furthermore I feel smart for not getting sucked into paying so much more for a Reg Barber (RB).
The RB for $70-$90 is a lovely tamper that I have had the pleasure of using, but it is functionally no better than this one.Read more ›
p.s. The 53mm is absolutely perfect fit for the La Spaziale Mini Vivaldi machine portafilter.
This 58mm fits my Gaggia Classic's portafilter perfectly and the difference in espresso quality can be seen (crema) and tasted immediately. Also knocking the beans off is an easier and cleaner process now - I really don't know why Gaggia even ships the machine with that useless plastic thing.
- Well balanced: relatively heavy / solid feel
- Outstanding surface finish
- Well made: precision machined
- Very ergonomic handle
- None to date
This worked so well I got another one as a gift for a relative. Highly recommended!
