Customer Reviews

Gaggia Classic replacement gasketThis gasket fit my 2011 Gaggia Classic well - it went in very easily and has stayed put when I have disassembled the machine. The diameter of the gasket was correct, but as noted on other reviews it is taller than the stock EDPM gasket so the portafilter does not rotate quite as far - it's tight at about a 30 degree angle from where it was before. No harm done though, but if you're picky about your aesthetic you may want to opt for a replacement EDPM gasket which may not be as tall. Aside from that, it's a gasket and it fits and does its job - I'm happy. 5Nice silicone gasket.Had the original gasket in our Gaggia Espresso for about 10 years. I hear some people have to replace theirs every year! I used silicone grease on the old gasket the first time I cleaned the unit in the first year and each time thereafter so maybe that's why it lasted so long. When it was about 5 years old and the gasket started leaking I turned it over and it lasted another 5 years. Anyway, the old gasket now had permanent indentions on both sides. It was leaking and it needed to be replaced. I've always been a big fan of silicone gaskets so I ordered this one. It's fits beautifully. Unlike the old gasket, this gasket has a slight wedge profile to it and writing embossed on one side of it. The writing side goes up into the machine. You won't be able to turn this gasket over if you ever get a permanent indention on one side. However, I am thinking the silicone will probably outlive this machine. I did put a thin layer of silicone grease on this gasket as well before installing it. It just makes the gasket easier to get out when you are cleaning the machine. 5More durable than rubberFinally, a universal gasket for Ascaso Steel Uno PROF units. Until I found this one, all I could do was replace the stock rubber gasket every few months, it gets sort of pricey. I was pleased to see the 8.5mm gasket works as a universal swap for the factory 8.2mm gasket. I like the action of locking the portafilter in, it feels less grainy than rubber. Based on what I think, it should last at least a year or longer with light use. 5when your Gaggia Classic brew group begins leaking outside of the shower headGET THIS! purchased my Gaggia Classic here in February 2017. the hard plastic gasket became brittle and ineffective about 18 months later of 4 ounces poured daily. forgetting it was the gasket causing the leaks, i kept fussing with ground tamping pressures and level, before leaning the machine on it's back to clean the shower head and decalcify...to NO AVAIL. upon removal of the old plastic brittle gasket caused a chunk to crack off however so it leaked even more upon reinstall. then, i FLIPPED it over to buy me some time until this blue silicone gasket could arrive (just a heads up - delivery took over 10 days). this gasket slid in and has worked like a charm. just be sure you push the gasket all the way in, and i recommend using cooking or coconut oil on the screws given their propensity to get stuck in the machine (which is how my last Gaggia passed away and is now a parts donor). yes, it took more pressure to screw in the portafilter. but it should be tight to allow the 15 bars of pressure to push out the best espresso. and alas, my machine is making lovely espresso again. 56+ months and holding strong!Replaced a leaky gasket on my Gaggia Baby Classic with this one. Noticeable thicker design, but the old one was going on 5yrs. Sealed up great right away, most noticeably reduce the amount of rotation to get the filter to seal. Definitely wore in a bit, as we're back now to a the handle pointing straight out from the machine, but still holding strong. 5Pluses and minusesStiffer and lasts longer than the factory gasket. The only downside is that it's much harder to remove for cleaning without damaging it than the factory gasket.I was in the habit of removing the factory gaskets for cleaning with a hooked dental tool. I could kind of spear them and pull the gasket and pull it out intact. That method doesn't work with this gasket. Its much harder to stab, and once I did I broke a chunk out of it.If I can find a good method to get these out intact I'll buy another spare. 4This gasket became very hard after 2 months of use. Go with the OEM gasketI installed this gasket because I wanted one that would last longer than a year. But it got hard almost immediately and was leaking after 2 months. The Ranchillio OEM gasket is better. Don't let either one go longer than a year or they will be very hard and hard to dig out. I had to drill a small hole, screw in a hook and pull out the old gasket. 1Good gasket. But thought I was getting two.Great product! I recommend these gaskets, but make sure they fit your machine before you order. Not all gaskets are the same size, even if it s for the same brand.The only complaint I have is that the picture seems to show 2 gaskets, and I ordered thinking I d receive 2. On closer inspection, I see that it s the top and bottom of one gasket- but in the same picture. I d recommend using two pictures to show the product.All that said, thanks for offering a great gasket for my machines. I will order another. 4Easy to seat portafilter nowMy Gaggia Classic was leaking at the gasket, putting grounds into my shot. It also was very hard to seat the portafilter and to remove it. This is because the old gasket was rock hard. It was really baked in there, and hard to get out. I used a dental pick and a small screwdriver to pry it until a chunk broke loose. After I got a piece out, I could use the screwdriver to pull an end free, and get the rest of the gasket out. I also took the time to remove and clean the screen which was completely caked with garbage, explaining why my shots were channeling so bad - water was only coming from a tiny spot on the screen. The plate beneath the screen has 4 holes, some of which were also caked with crud. Yes, I had neglected cleaning my machine for a while. I got it all back together and popped this new gasket in. It's firmer than I expected. Once machine was back together, now the portafilter seats very easily and removes very easily, and no more grounds in our shots! Cleaning everything up helped tremendously. Breathed new life into our machine by replacing the gasket and cleaning up. 5Get this gasket!Very pleased with this "new type" of gasket. The standard rubber gaskets have always been a disappointment. It's easier to lock in the porta filter along with a better feel of how tightly you need lock it in place. Time will tell, but I believe longer life from silicone gaskets versus the standard rubber gaskets harden prematurely. I've owned my espresso machine since 2001, performed many repairs over the years. Sorry repair guys, I just am not paying the typical quoted $250-$500 for a repair. YouTube and a bit of patience is all I need! 5
