I have an '87 Cremina and this is my first experience with bottomless portafilter. As someone mentioned before, it comes with a double basket. This is good because my shock double basked is slightly different shape and it wobbles when I push it in. Electra basket fits better but ears are different and I have to put more force into it.I also have this problem with stock portafilter. I also have an OE 49.5mm tamper but it's tight fit in the basket that comes with this bottomless portafilter. Olympia tamper is 49mm and it might work better. Same "issue" with OE funnel. All these things have nothing to do with this product, but I though I would mention them. My previous workflow was to grind into a paper cup then transfer it into the basket. Since this portafilter lays flat on the table, I can grind (HG1 grinder) directly in it (with funnel). It also has a spring that makes emptying old grounds easy. Washes easily and longer handle feels much better. 5 stars.
Happy with item

I was very happy that this item also included a two shot basket. The portafilter fits/works perfectly. Service was great and I received the item on the West coast promptly.

The first one I received didn't fit into the group on my '89. Johnny sent a replacement where the lugs/ears were slightly adjusted for an older machine. It arrived quickly, fits and works perfectly. I'm glad I went with the real deal instead of a 3rd party. Great service from Cerini!
Only the best

So you bought one of the finest lever machines on the market, why not buy a true factory OEM bottomless filter? Just as perfect as the normal factory portafilter, but bottomless so you can see the cremina perfect shots form.
