So, I bought a Gaggia Classic yesterday, unpacked it last night, and it has a spare bit of plastic in it that I canít figure out what it is for. It is roughly 15 to 20 cmís long and 10 cmís or so wide, about 3 mm thick and black in colour. It looks like a rectangle with the corners cut off. I have no idea what it is for, and it does not appear in the manual at all.
It is the same plastic as the top of the water reservoir, just a bit thinner.
Any Classic owners out there who can tell me what it is? And what it is used for?

I tossed it. I want to say it fits in the drip tray with the intention to stop splashing. I think Gaggia is a bit self conscious of the possibility of mess/burns resulting from high pressure relief water entering the corner of the drip tray and splashing dreg water onto you/counter/floor.
