Scales To Weigh Portafilter For Sette 270w

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

I have ordered a Sette 270w grinder. I want to buy a set of scales that will let me weigh the portafilter. As this is a weight based grinder i want to monitor its accuracy and consistancy. I wont be checking every doze once i start to get confident with it. Is it best to buy scales big enough for the PF or is there a better way?

You can buy scales big enough for a pf which measure to 0.1g which are fine however if you're low on space you can get some smaller ones and dose into the basket (unattached to the pf) weigh on the scales and place basket into pf. As you can probably tell the smaller scales can be a slight pain but if you are low on space or want scales that can fit on the drip tray for your cup too then they can be a good way to go.

thanks for your reply. space is not an issue but smaller would be better i guess. my grinder arrives today so i dont yet know if i can doze directly into the basket without the PF.

You can use e.g. a lid off a bacon storage container or similar....

This is also great for me using double spouted on the L-R and weighing the shot as I can pull away two cups and the overrun collects in the lid and does not drown the scales.

Could always go custom, scrap of wood which was laying around and 30mins fun and enjoyment with the dremel and no more trying to balance the naked on bits and bobs, which usually ended in disaster. ad1a0b74dc2068767629edfcf2550492.jpg

Guys many thanks for your replies. after seeing your tecnique when using the smaller scales, i have went ahead and ordered some AMIR pocket scales. i will use a lid or piece of wood to help rest the PF on the scales, i will need to see what i have lying around that i can use.

If anybody would like an aluminium weighing plate I have 2 @ 110 x 190 and 3 @ 127 x 190

Not sure how much of the self adhesive foam strip (that heat insulates scales) I have.

I use these scales, i have a 270W and use them for exactly the same reason you want to. They work a treat.

I was looking at those scales too but i was put off by the review saying battery life was not great and it needed a 9v battery which is not cheap either, maybe its an isolated case.

 

Sure... PM me your postal details.

Good idea. Those batteries can be pricey so probably best sticking to the cheapo ones.

I have a 270W too and also use bonavita scales to weigh - but generally only when i'm changing coffee types now. My 270W took a while to settle down to being consistent, and remember you can change the offset in it too, so if it constantly over or under doses compared to the display you can change it.

 

Mine is now +/- about 0.1g per shot pulled. Good enough for me to not weigh every one now.

Many thanks for the reply, sounds ideal with regards to only weighing at a bean change now, thats what im looking forward to, i just hope does not take too long to settle down and give me consistent weights.

Mine took about 5kg of beans to settle

 

I tried it out today, it is not dozing anywhere near the correct weight and in now getting an E02 error. I have put a post up to see if anyone can assist.

I might have to take this recommendation back as mine died yesterday. Contacted Amazon for warranty replacement.

Sorry to hear this. Im glad i got a refund for my refurb model. We want our grinder to last outside the warranty period. Good luck getting yours replaced.
