Very well-made, excellent weight, and of course it fits well in my Silvia with my 19-21g Rancilio filter basket. The original 18g basket that came with the Silvia fits well also. I bought it because I wanted a bottomless portafilter to be able to check for channeling, over/under extraction etc., for which it works fine. Two other benefits I didn't realize I would get are: 1, because it doesn't have spouts, you can fit a taller cup underneath or in my case a scale and a cup, and 2, because it sits flat on the tamping pad (again because of no spouts) it's much easier to tamp flat and even. You don't have to use one hand to estimate the angle of the portafilter itself.
