We only use the Stainless Steel Portafilter (including the 1 and 2 coffee spouts). In the entire Home Pro (Dream One / Pid, Steel) and Professional (Bar, Baby T, Barista T, Big Dream) range.
We stopped using brass and chrome on this key component. The advantages are multiple:
-Health. Stainless steel is the food material par excellence. Even with the use of low lead brass, there are metal migrations in the beverage. We also remove the chrome, which ends up in the cup. The traditional chrome-plated brass filter holder is black on the inside in a few weeks, while the stainless steel one is unalterable over time.
Quality of material. Stainless steel is a much harder material than brass. Its lifespan is much longer.
-Cleaning. Much easier to clean and more resistant.
-Esthetic. We have provided this filter holder with several details that give the product a better image:
Comes with a filter for 1 coffee, another for 2 coffees and one blind filter for regular cleaning with a good detergent. Manufactured in AISI 304 stainless steel using cutting-edge technology.
Laser engraving, including a different serial number for each filter.
The circular perforations are totally uniform and always the same size (maximum tolerance of 0.02 mm difference between one hole and the next).
Its design (a geometric pyramid for the holes and a 94º angle) guarantees uniform dispensing and reduces possible sediment in the coffee and the blocking of the holes.
Available in 4 sizes (18gr and 21gr are optional)
Plus model. Stainless Steel. Backlit.
