I have an old Espressione Luna machine. The inside diameter of the basket measures 57.9mm using a caliper. Will this basket fit? Also, do you know if I even need to backflush this particular espresso machine? It was made by CMA in Italy.
A shopper on Jul 3, 2014
Best Answer: I am not able to answer your question specifically about the Luna machine but I expect that the backflush basket will fit the portafilter. My machine has an light that indicates when the pressure is adequate to accomplish the purpose of the back flushing. Without that light I imagine there could be a risk of back flushing too long or at a pressure too high for your device. There is always a build up of coffee sediment inside your machine that can be easily cleaned through back flushing, if your machine has a 3-way solenoid valve. The more rigorous cleaning alternatives are 1) disassembly and 2) rinsing with espresso-machine specific cleaning solutions. In fact, rinsing with cleaning solutions probably cleans parts of your machine that are beyond the scope of back flushing, so back flushing does not replace appropriate rinsing.

Will it work with Gaggia Classic?
szafa on Mar 14, 2015
Best Answer: This is a generic 58mm basket, so if your portafilter takes a 58mm basket, which the Gaggia Classic does, then yes, this will fit. We recommend referring to your machine's manual regarding backflushing procedures.

Will this work with the Breville dual boiler?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, this basket does fit into the portafilter properly. However, keep in mind that Breville machines come with a rubber gasket that has a tiny hole in them to relieve full pressure from being enacted on the machine, so that some of the backflush detergent water will flow through the portafilter and spouts, not only cleaning it, but also not putting too much pressure on the brew pressure release valve. With a blind basket like this, there isn't any control over the pressure, so what the pump is producing is also put on the brew pressure release valve, and none of the detergent mixture passes through to provide some cleaning to the portafilter and spouts, this would need to be done separately.

can i use this product on my saeco sirena?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2014
Best Answer: No, you do not back flush the Sirena and so you will not use this 58mm Backflush Basket.

This is the thing you need to keep your machine running smoothly. Rubber disc does not cut it. (Posted on 10/22/2014)

Got the back flush basket for our Rocket Cellini. One came with the machine according to the invoice but we must have missed placed it.

Was able to use it right away after watching the back flush video.

Love the vids!

Daily water backflush and weekly detergent backflush are an essential part of a maintenance routine that will keep your machine operating at its best for many years. Rubber backflush disks deteriorate over time and can leak sometimes. A blind basket is a far superior solution. If you've got an espresso machine with a three way valve, you need this. Plus, it's an emergency mirror (and should remain so if you're doing regular weekly (or better) detergent flushes. (Posted on 8/4/2012)
