Designed exclusively for use with the Breville Dual Boiler Espresso Machine BES900XL, the Breville Bottomless Portafilter fits snugly against the 58mm brew head. Perfect your shot by watching it extract drop by precious drop. This is a great learning tool to fine-tune your dosage and grind distribution. Made of stainless steel with a 5 inch long black handle and a stainless steel end cap, the overall length is 8.5 inches.
The Breville Bottomless Portafilter is designed specifically for the Dual Boiler BES900XL model. It is not interchangeable with other Breville models or other brands that have 58mm brew heads.

I have the VST 22g straight sided triple with the bottomless portafilter. It is a tight fit, but it does work just fine. I find myself using the double more often since you have to have the grind dialed in perfectly and I usually have to toss 60 grams of coffee until I get there (wish I would have bought the VST 18g). 10+ years of experience with a double and I get a 9.0 at about 1.5-2 oz at 28 seconds every time with an espro-press (convex).
I never tried to unscrew the double portafilter so I can't help you there. The bottomless is so much more fun, why bother with the double spout?
Good luck! Jul 22, 2013
I believe the spouts unscrew, try wrapping a thin screw driver in cloth and putting it through the spouts and then using that leverage to unscrew it. Jul 22, 2013
I DO love my Breville Dual Boiler BES900XL. I upgraded from a reputable single boiler and it makes all of the difference in the world. Plus the feature loaded Breville is and incredible bang for the buck. Jul 22, 2013
"Not compatible with any BES900XL that has the first four digits of the serial number greater than 1337 (serial number is located in the water tank compartment). This item is also not compatible with BES920XL the Dual Boiler™ or BES980XL the Oracle™. "
The Oracle is a whole new machine, now available in the US. The BES920XL is the replacement for the current Dual Boiler but is not yet available in the US. Jan 17, 2014
It did come with the smaller milk jug if that's any indication, and I gather from the internet that the smaller pitcher suggests that it is a B version.
In any case, the bottomless portafilter works very well in my machine.
It also helps a great deal with judging your grind and tamp. I highly recommend it. Jan 17, 2014

Great, but will NOT work in the new BES920XLReview by jbkalla

This was great for the BES900XL, but will not work in the new Dual Boiler (BES920XL), unless you have a way to grind down the arm a bit.

Works great only on "A" modelReview by BeanHead

This is a wonderful tool to dial in your grinder/machine. Works only on the original "A" BES900XL machine. Watch out for spin-outs on the "A" machine. Always clean and dry the portafilter interface.
