Breville The Knock Box Accessory $44 Delivered @ Amazon AU

180

Have been using the garbage bin as knock box for quite some time (gets yuck sometimes when the portafilter basket dislodges), and have started thinking I should get a proper one. Noticed that Amazon AU is selling the well reviewed stainless steel Breville Knock Box at $44, much cheaper than every other store I've searched.

Also, a Limited Deal is ongoing for an Avanti, if you're looking for a more affordable knock box.

    I think this is the normal price. Got this same one a few moths ago for same price.
    This is big and really well made. So not a deal but good quality one.

    $44 a bargain? BAHAHAHA! I'm also one of Breville's biggest fans!

    I just paid $9.30 brand new for the Sunbeam Bang Bang from The Good Guys with the $20 voucher from the Google Max Hub Home Pro Connect Wifi Youtube debacle (I've forgotten what it's called) and a shopback rebate. So yeah, not a deal. Sorry!

      Yes agreed.
      Sunbeam Bang Bang is $29 regular price at Harvey Normans!

    • +1 vote

      Yeah the Sunbeam is much better because it has a high rubber base to absorb the sound and impact of knocking out the grinds. Much sturdier. But don't put it in dishwasher or the lining will peel.

      Only benefit of the Breville is the inner can be removed for emptying and is dishwasher safe.

      • +1 vote

        I prefer removable inner, I got this with the $20 voucher so $24. Wouldn't pay more than that though.

      • +1 vote

        Have used the Breville for a couple years and not noticed any impact noise of significance when emptying grinds. It has rubber feet and is exceedingly well made. It is a decent size so I do not have to empty it every day. The removable inner is brilliant as I do not have to worry about damaging the outer skin.

        •  

          I have to agree with this. I’ve had the breville for over four years, and dishwasher it at least once a week, and I do not notice any noise when knocking pucks.

      So it was $29? Don't think including your voucher from some other debacle makes it cheaper.
      The Bang Bang is good - but all of these things are way too big for home use unless you're making 10 coffees an hour. I have it but much prefer the smaller versions.

      •  

        Huh? Yes… of course it was $29. Don't think including your voucher from some other debacle makes it cheaper… OF COURSE IT DOES! Why else would I use a free voucher!? Otherwise we'd have people on ozbargain running around wondering why their local retailer won't sell it to them for $10!

        The voucher made it cheaper for me, what makes it cheaper for other people is the Sunbeam knock box always retails cheaper than the Breville!

  •  

    I have this, from a David jones sale for 29, its a solid piece. Its not a complicated item so something like the sunbeam might be a better option

  •  

    I have the avanti knockbox, its small, and somewhat loud when banging against it. i gotta empty it after about 4-5 pucks. don't recommend it really.

    •  

      This ones big, almost same size as a 2l kettle. At first I thought it was overkill but then you realise how convenient it is to not have to empty, takes me a couple weeks to fill it up and dump into the garden.

        mould?

      • +5 votes

        Surely it develops mould after a few days? The thought of wet grounds just bubbling in the kitchen for things to grow on yuck. I empty my bang bang daily or 3 days tops.

        • +1 vote

          It won't grow mould in the kitchen, as long as it dries up. It will grow mould in the garden cause it will keep wet

          • +3 votes

            @ShouldIBuyIt: It think how fast mould grows depends a lot on whether the machine has a solenoid value. The cake from my dual boiler dries up really fast, never had any mould growing before dumping them into my garden.

        Have you looked up tests on what happens when used coffee grounds are thrown into soil? If growing plants, used coffee beans actually retard their growth.

    Breville the Knock? But I am the one who knocks

  • +1 vote

    Is this more inconvenient than the bin?

    I do 1-2 coffees a day and then does this mean I have to keep emptying this? More inconvenient than straight into bin?

    •  

      It makes sure you don't lose the portafilter into the bin. But at 1-2 coffees a day would be overkill. You could just empty straight into the sink?

      •  

        my portafilter is almost stuck there, would never fall into bin. Probably bin would remain my best option. Scared of putting pure grounds into drain.

        •  

          It's organic matter and very fine (and surely some go in when you wash it?) but either option works.

          •  

            @wolfshooter: There's no need to throw this organic matter into landfill.
            Put it into compost or somewhere else other than landfill if possible
            I don't have a garden or compost but can drop off in a park etc

    •  

      I'm with you. Cut out the middle man and knock straight into the bin!

    •  

      Yeah I used to do that too until I kept losing the portafilter into the bin so bought something similar to this deal. But fast forward 10 years and I'm now composting all the grinds with other veggie scraps. So saves going to landfill site completely and helps with composting.

    •  

      Pour some baking soda in it. I only empty it once a week, and the put into dishwasher.

    Its $34 on Good Guys Commercial - its listed as "Breville Bar Vista Coffee Grinds Bin" but has the same model code BCB100BSS. I picked it over the Sunbeam since its easier to clean.

  •  

    anyone have the knock box mini?

    • +2 votes

      Yeah I got it via the sunbeam promo(I actually got 2 by mistake) I find it quite good for the amount we make coffee, empty every day or 2, far better than going to the bin every coffee and dealing with the drips

      •  

        Was that the current deal by any chance? I submitted my claim end of April, just wondering how long they take to process

        • +1 vote

          Was the EM5300 I purchased on April 13th. Took around 3 weeks to arrive I think

          •  

            @Motoxman1: Haha, i got an AusPost notification not long after my comment saying my Sunbeam package was on its way, and just received another separate one. Guess they don't really care how many of these things they give away.

  •  

    Considered this when looking for a knock box but it just looked too big for my home set up.

    If you need something a bit smaller, consider the RhinoWares Waste Tube. Been using mine for a while and works really well.

    I got the sunbeam one but returned it because it was too large.
    I got a Grindenstein https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B000WHC89M/ instead which fits perfectly under the group head of a dual boiler.
    It does require frequent emptying though. Every 4-6 coffees or so.

    • +1 vote

      I've been using the Grindenstein for 6 years - its size is really good and the build quality is great - no problems with the rubber chipping or any other issues during its usage.

      •  

        Grindenstein is great, small footprint and forces me to empty before mould starts developing.

        Oh and after sales support is great. I lost the end cap and they promptly sent me one free of charge.

      •  

        Another vote for the grindenstein, bought couple years back now. Does fit under the dual boiler but I have it on the side anyways. Fills up 4-5 pucks or more if you can be bothered smashing them before chucking into the backyard.

    •  

      Thanks for the suggestion. I have been debating which one to get and this sounds perfect.

  • +1 vote

    I prefer the smaller Avanti one because it doesn't take up as much counter space. I don't see issue with transferring the pucks after a couple of days (into the garden) because I don't see it as a substitute for a kitchen bin.

  •  

    Have had this for a good 3-4 months and much better than the bin.

    However - does anyone elses knock box/bang bang or whatever they use splash up the walls? I find I have to use my spare hand with a cloth to cover the top and back of the group handle when I bang out the grinds. Dunno if everyone else has this issue.

  •  

    Purchased on Amazon AU on 2 November 2019. It was $43.

  •  

    I bought the Dreamfarm Grindenstein of Ebay last week. Works a charm. $22.

    Took me longer than I care to admit to figure out what a "Knock Box" is, never heard of that one before.

  •  

    This is too big, it takes up too much counter space and takes too long to fill up so its easy to forget and end up with mouldy grounds. The Grindenstein knock box is much more suitable for the home IMO

  •  

    I just use a decor container which I think is totally fine, i found most of these knock boxes too wide, especially when bench space is at a premium.

    Breville is crap.. why do their coffee machines have like 0.25 bars of steam pressure when other machines have 2 bars?

    Takes forever to steam milk. Garbage
