Looking for bare bottomless portafilter/no handle no basket

Recommended Posts

Hi have a maraX and was looking to get a wooden bottomless portafilter but not at the price they sell at and I don’t need the extra basket, so I seen a wooden handle and wondered if anywhere would sell the Portafilter  without handle or basket ?

Is this any good?  It's the whole thing with a basket, but the price is quite a bit lower than the Lelit stuff.


I have one of their black plastic handled bottomless portafilters and while it's not as nice as the genuine stuff, for the price I have no complaints at all.

Yeah, the generic bottomless are entirely acceptable. I have one from the same store for my Gaggia, and it's fine (aside from it not liking actual Gaggia baskets, but I had some E61 baskets to hand anyway)
