My double baskets gone and died and its the only one I use, its 53mm and I've heard they are quite cheap to buy in bulk??.......also why would it die?......its got a small hole and what looks like a small rubber gasket....looks all very unnecessary...I just want a plain double one.....:(

No need to buy in bulk - you can pick up 53mm baskets fairly cheaply as singles.

 

Sounds like a pressurised basket that you currently use.

 

Let me dig out a link for you for some 53mm basket options

53mm La Spaziale baskets should fit nicely

As to why they die, pressure build up, heat, wear and tear - they all take their toll on baskets

Ok just had a thought, what difference will the non-pressurised basket make??........and why do they put pressurised ones on in the 1st place??

Just wondering will the pressure on my machine be to much for a non pressurised basket??..............I can't see that it will but you never know...

No, you'd need a heck of a lot more pressure to bend a basket out of shape.

Best to return then

 

Is it a case of the basket being too wide or too high (eg a thinner gasket is required)?

 

Trying to find a UK Briel dealer is difficult. This is one of the pitfalls of using machines not widely available.

indeed dude, returned it shall be.....just emailed my contact in Portugal to see if some could be sent......I just didn't want a pressurised one if possible......if I had the tools it would be easy to adapt the one from Coffee Hit.......
