Subject: Berville Portafilter Question [newbie allert!]
 

Hey,

I've been lurking behind the bushes of the forum for some time now. I found an old thread about modifications to pressurized filters to make them un-pressurized. With my searches I found that this http://www.brevilleusa.com/single-wall-filters.html should fit my Cuisinart em-100 machine. I went to order one, and they don't ship to Canada from their US site, so I tried to find it on the Canadian site and found this instead http://www.breville.ca/2-cup-filter-single-wall-bes830.html .

My question is, What is the difference?! They're both compatible with the same machines, but one is much cheaper than the other.

Any information you have is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Edited***

I plan on upgrading my grinder as well. Figured this would be a good step towards a nicer set-up.

They look the same to me too. I wouldn't recommend spending $30 for a stock basket. If you ever get a higher end machine, I would recommend spending $35 on a precision basket.

Always remember the most important thing is what ends up in your cup!
