I love this Tamper, well worth the money and does the job very well. Why buy a $69.99 tamper with a fancy handle when you can buy this for a fraction of the cost, unless you have money to blow, buy this tamper and I guarantee you will be satisfied.
Good for what it is. I have a Gaggia Baby with a commercial-sized 58mm portafilter. The store gave me this 55mm for free, which is causing microchanneling so bad that it sputters all over my counter. The wrong tool for a job is not worth it at any price. The double ended handle makes it hard to press down evenly.
A proper $40 tamp is a great value compared to this. It looks great, feels nice, and is nice to use.
I can tamp with putting my weight into this with easy 30lbs of pressure and make great espresso. Its not a machined part but rather cheaper cast part that has some imperfections but for the price you can't go wrong to replace the cheap plastic one that likely came with your espresso machine!
