How the Rocket Stainless Steel Tamper Works

  • Lightly fill the portafilter basket to the top
  • Use your finger to gently even out the grounds
  • Lightly press the tamper into the grounds and find a good center point
  • Evenly apply approximately 30 lbs of pressure to the grounds
  • Tap the side of the portafilter to reveal loose grounds
  • Lightly tamp these loose grounds into place
How Does it Compare? This is a stainless-steel tamper with the Rocket brand.

Hi, Does this come with the base that's seen on the videos?
Gil S on Jul 26, 2015
Best Answer: This is a solid unit. The handle and base do not detach from each other

Is this the same tamper that comes packaged with the R58?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2015
Best Answer: No, while the tamper that comes with the R58 is branded with Rocket, it is not quite as heavy-duty as this tamper, and doesn't have the Rocket brand around the base of the tamper. Instead, the tamper will be a bit shorter overall, and while it's metal, it feels a bit lighter than this one will. The Rocket brand is also lighter in color, more like a ghostly aluminum imprinting on the very top of the handle.

Is this a one piece tamper, or two pieces screwed or welded together? My gorgeous tamper with a rosewood handle has loosened. The screws have stripped slightly after 8 years of use. Miss Silvia deserves a replacement, and I'm hoping for a one piece unit, although I appreciate opinions about the best value tampers, too.
A shopper on Jun 20, 2013
Best Answer: Unfortunately this tamper is also a two piece operation, with the handle and base screwing together. The Rattleware tampers are a good option, as though they are two pieces, they do not screw together where the base and handle meet.

Way to heavy, not precise Review by Chunkmaster

This thing is way too heavy, making it difficult to use precisely. Further, I would expect rockets top tamper to be more precise with their own baskets, it's just as bad as the stock tamper that comes with it. I actually went back to using the stock tamper because it is much more balanced, and now use a Pullman big step. (Posted on 2/26/2017)
Fit not as expectedReview by Kevin

Although this is the matching Rocket tamper for my Rocket machine (58mm portafilter), the fit inside the portafilter as not as tight as I would like and coffee remain on the side walls unless I move the tamper around to remove it. Does anybody else find this a problem?

Finish is usual Rocket high standards! (Posted on 2/3/2015)

I bought this tamper after my last one fell to the floor breaking off the handle. The polished stainless matches my Rocket R58 so it fits right in with my set up. I now have several of the Rocket accessories including their knock box, the four steam tip set, and now this tamper. The fit, finish, and quality of all of these items is top notch, as you might expect from the maker of such a fine espresso machine. (Posted on 6/4/2014)

Stainless steel tamperReview by Serg

I own this tamper for serveral weeks by now. The reason why i went for for this particular one was because it matches my new machine - Rocket Espresso. It is as good as one could expect - stainless steel, polished, heavy (for the tamper). It does the job and it looks nice, with black letters on polished steel. Hope it won't get scratched easily, and so far, I believe I've made the right choice.
P.S. Could not help but included 'small water tank' as a cons, as this was the only one applicable in this case - yeah, incredibly small water tank.

Pros:
Quiet, Easy To Clean

Cons:
Small Water Container (Posted on 2/8/2012)
