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.
This tamper is somewhat cheaply made, but it is way better then the plastic tamping tool that comes with the Breville. It measures 50mm which is 1mm smaller then the Breville filter so you will need to tamp a few times to get the edges flat.
With my usual grind i instantly noticed a fuller flavour. If your using a cheap Breville, you need one of these tampers. It is inexpensive enough (less then a pound of beans!) that it doesnt feel so bad when you get a better espresso machine and this tamper does not fit.
Very recommended if you just starting out or using inexpensive (not so good?) espresso machines!
It definitely adds that espresso bar look that I was going for. Its a tamper so there is not much to review. Its got a good weight and feels solid and not cheap. Paying a little for that but I enjoy the look it brings with the stainless steel in my kitchen.
