Product Description

Keep things tidy with a shiny modern twist with this Modern Stainless Steel Knock Box. This sturdy metal knock box features a rubber base and rubber bar that offers you a safe place to unleash the hammer and give your portafilter a good whack without worry.

Pros
  • Large Capacity - This large-and-in-charge box holds a generous amount of pucks for those extra caffeinated days.
  • Replaceable Knock Bar - When you begin to notice that the rubber bar has seen better days, not to worry! The rubber bar can be removed and replaced with a brand new bar to 'knock' around.
Cons
  • Heavy - With more capacity comes a little more weight. Heavier than most knock boxes, this stainless steel knock box and rubber foot may be clunkier than you had hoped.

I needed a replacement bar for the Knock Box.
Patricia D on Apr 14, 2012
what is the overall length of th bar?
kate o on Apr 14, 2012
Best Answer: I bought this bar to replace mine on a box I got at Starbucks. The rubber had worn through on the ends that keep it from sliding back and forth. I had the same question as you and took the chance it would fit... luckily it did. Now that Ive got it I can tell you the over all length is 5 and a half inches end to end and 4 and a quarter inside the ball ends. Hope that helps!!

Will this replacement bar work with the "Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Knockbox - Round with Rubber Base"? It looks like it might, but I want to be sure. Thanks! RhondaF
A shopper on Feb 4, 2012
Best Answer: On the larger round knockbox, take your bar and your old worn out grommets (if you have them) to either a hardware store or auto parts store. You can get much stronger rubber or vinyl tubing that will outlast the original, though it's not as soft and cushy. The grommets will be in the electrical parts section of either store. I read a review on another site where the user bought tubing the fit over the bar AND nicely fit in the slot where the grommets go. She made sure to cut the tubing long enough to just fit between the two ball-ends, making the grommets un-necessary.

I have two questions; does the rubber base come off for cleaning and if so is the rest of the knock box dishwasher safe?
A shopper on May 22, 2015
Best Answer: The rubber base does not come off and this knock box is not dishwasher safe. I recommend just wiping it down with a soapy rag and then rinsing with a clean rag.

MessyReview by Robert
Quality

The box and rubber mat are very nice for the price. They skimped on the rubber covering the bar and the rubber grommets, given the thin side walls. Neither has a great lifespan. You'll find yourself hitting the bare metal bar with your pf, hmmm, did I just ruin my pf? Hardly seems worth it. My biggest complaint is the large holes for inserting the bar. I'm tired of cleaning grounds off the counter and floor that escaped via these holes. (Posted on 10/27/2014)
Decent price but can damage portafilterReview by Brian

This knockbox looks nice. It will hold about 5-6 pucks at most. The problem that I have with it is that the rubber on the crossbar does not cover the whole bar. As a result, my portafilter basket has dings along the edge, which I hope does not affect its use in the long term. If the manufacturer adds another inch of padding, this problem goes away.

I like that it's stainless steel, so it goes well with my new Via Venezia.

I like that it holds several pucks. I can make extra room on the counter by placing it on the drip tray of the Via Venezia.

I can order replacement rubber sleeves for the bar or just get rubber tubing from the hardware store when it wears down.

Great price, and I used my $25 Gift Certificate that came with the Via Venezia toward the purchase of the knock box. (Posted on 8/1/2013)

Picked up this knockbox a few weeks ago as a "starter" for my inherited Solis SL-70. Nice stainless steel construction. Rubber base makes for a quite "knock out" for the early morning shots. The rubber sleeve on the removable bar may not hold up well, but it is removable and replaceable.. Worst case - I'd have to cobble something up to fit, but the box itself would remain in great shape. It's the right size for several double shot pucks each day for a week. (Posted on 4/14/2013)

Nice, heavy, does the job, though the rubber grommets holding the bar in are not entirely enthusiastic about their job. I have only had the box a few weeks, and anticipate things deteriorating over time, but it beats the heck out of banging the puck out on my cutting board.

I will probably upgrade later, but as a first knock box experience, it isn't at all bad. (Posted on 3/22/2013)

The rubber parts of this knock box (not the base) disintegrated within a year of use. It's made of poor material. Before this became evident I thought it was great but not any more. (Posted on 3/19/2013)

This knock box look very nice and its construction is pretty solid. It allows me to pull shot after shot without going to the garbage and start hitting the side of garbage can until the whole thing comes out. That's when the fun begins... trying to find the basket between pampers, dog food, and old left overs and then I have to use a knives to take the coffee out. This jig make it simple!

The knock box is very sturdy, it stands up well to the daily abuse and doesn't leak. I was concerned that the daily banging might damage the tile on the counter. But the thick rubber pad cushions it well.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Easy To Clean, Commercial Grade

Cons:

Knockout BoxReview by Aaron

I was very happy with the quality of this box. Stainless steel all around, very tight seams. Nice quality black rubber, not foam or plastic.

This saves me from going to the sink to dump the puck after every shot. Not a big deal if your machine is next to your sink, but a nicety if your sink is on the other side of the room.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Excellent Quality

Cons:

Big enough, small enoughReview by The Chief Inspector
Quality
Value

I have this next to my home espresso area, which is a Gaggia Classic and a Rocky grinder. I make 2-4 espresso drinks a day.

Big enough for daily use (4-8 knockouts/day) without taking too much counter space.

The rubber base is nice; quiets the knock, saves your counter surface, and keeps the box from scooting around.

The bar is easy to remove for cleaning. The grommets won't last, but easy to find at the hardware store and replace (the little spheres on the end of the bar unscrew). The rubber on the bar will probably wear out, but also easy to replace.

The bar is recessed far enough that you won't spill ground on your counter.

This is I expected based on the description.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Easy To Clean

Cons:

It is very necessary to have a knock box for your espresso pucks. It makes it easy to get them out of the porta-filter and it keeps the pucks in one place. It looks great on the kitchen counter. It is easy to clean as well. Everything comes apart and reassembles quickly.

What can you say about a knock box? It does what you would expect and does it without making a mess.

I feel this model is the best buy for a stainless steel knock box.

I was given a tip by Dale at SCG regarding the rubber sleeve on the knock bar. My sister has one that the rubber quickly broke off. Dale said to go to your local home improvement store and buy a short length of surgical tubing. They have done so at SCG and it is holding up very well.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Easy To Clean
