    Good price.

  • Got one. Big fan. Even bought one for family member overseas that had the same Breville machine as me. It's that good, compared to using the lightweight crappy one that comes with the unit.

    • I picked one up too, I noticed that I have trouble applying just the right pressure every time I tamp - hopefully this helps!

      • +3

        Didnt make any difference for me. But the good thing is, you get good level.

        • I find that if I apply different pressure when I tamp, it can cause channelling or differences in extraction time between shots. I think this should at least help with consistency.

          • @poppingtags: Absolutely, thats what I meant by good level. This is apparent if you use single shot basket. I still use the stock one as Iam used to applying proper pressure. If we can get a 53.3mm, that would be further better.

  • Thanks op, but showing up for me as $24.99 when checking out. Hmmmmm…..

    • Got mine from AliExpress after missing out on the last deal. Paid $16 and it included a tamper mat also :)

    • great price if you can wait 3 months for delivery, lol

      • +1

        Most of the stuff I've been ordering from Ali is still getting here 2-3 weeks.

        • good on u mate, i can barely wait for 2-3 days let alone 2-3 weeks. that's why i have prime so i have my stuff asap. i don't mind paying a little extra to not wait until the next millennium to receive it, lol

          it would be awesome if amazon was like america - u order in the morning, and u get it before dinner same day.

            @Rickrone: But you're missing out on the excitement of having random parcels arrive long after you've forgotten ordering them! It's like a suprise present to your future self

              @askvictor: Plus if you're inclined, you can play the self-detective game and try and figure out what the "coming today" delivery notification is referring to before the package arrives (:

            • @askvictor: What happened if your future self is like..

              "What the hell?! What's XiaoDongSi Pty Ltd. .. shit, $250 bucks!???.. "

  • I saw it as $21 but when checkout is $24.99. I have been waiting for this deal…arrgghhh!!

    • Currently $21.22.

  • $25 ain’t a bad price either. Got one of these, they’re great, 1000% better than the stock tamper

  • I find that you really only need the distributor, not the tamper. A waste of time to use both.
    So the 'distributor only' model is possibly better if this is all you use, as it has a better handle/top.

    • I find both quite useful. I have a fantastic weighted tamper but this is just much easier to ensure a good level.

    • What's your reasoning?

      • After using the distributor it's already tamped down and level more than adequately in my experience. I've attempted to use a tamper afterwards and find there's no further tamping required, you just run the risk of cracking the puck with the additional movements. Given this you'd quickly tire of the extra effort to make negligible/no/worse difference. Tamping and leveling with a single rotation or two is much more efficient.

        Your mileage may differ, but this has been my experience. And I have seen others post similar findings.

        The 'distributor only' model is nicer to use and in appearance if this is all your interested in using.

        • Yeah but if you have the distributor tamper model you don't set them both to the same depth.
          See the video in the description.

          • @WatchNerd: Yes - if you want to incur additional effort you'd set them at different depths. If you want to save effort with no difference in outcome (subjective, but try it yourself) you set the distributor to the right depth and do it in a single motion.

            • @xmail: I own the double ended Matow, once it's set there is no need to change it. Using both ends is no effort at all, I enjoy it.

              • @WatchNerd: I guess you need to try it for a few days to confirm whether it makes a difference or not rather than just assuming to justify its use. Others have tried and found no difference: https://www.home-barista.com/tips/we-dont-need-no-stinkin-ta...

                • @xmail: Actually I've tried it the other way & not used the distributor end seeing as I level the grinds with the back of a knife beforehand.
                  Not much difference.

                  • +1

                    @WatchNerd: If you're using a knife it sounds like you're already going through quite a few motions so the extra effort may not be noticeable.
                    An interesting quote from that page "You cannot fix bad distribution with a tamp, but can ruin a good distribution with a tamp.".

                    imho using a dosing ring to catch all the grinds, a quick shake to level out, then the distributor tool is the quickest and delivers the most consistent outcome.

        • I watched someone talk about how just using a distributor to tamp could actually work out better.

          Something about how compact the grounds can be packed if you set the distributor to the level that you tamp, because you are twisting and pressing at the same time (instead of just downward pressure). Therefore something about how you can adjust the grinds accordingly.

          Eh just sharing what i have heard.

    • Wouldn't a distributor tool compact high areas and therefore creating uneven density?

      I always use hand to push grounds around to level the best I can to ensure even pressure across the puck.

      • It would if you pushed it straight down, but you rotate it as you let the weight compress the puck. I use a naked portafilter and can see there is no channelling. Anyway, as I said your mileage may differ - but this is the opinion from someone that uses it multiple times a day.

        You'll see quite a few people share the same opinion: https://www.home-barista.com/tips/we-dont-need-no-stinkin-ta...

    • I quite like this one: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B098LP287P ($23.99 currently)

      Lacking review, also not too sure if it is really necessary.

  • does it make a noticeable difference to the extraction? better taste etc?

    • I guess it depends if you've already mastered using a normal tamper.

    • not really, and i bought every gadget sold. lol

      the game changer for me was the funnel and calibrated tamper, perfect extraction every time.

      but i guess it's fun to spin the distributor, vrooooooooom. lol

    • Yes, but not necessary, you can use your hand to level before tamp.

    • Consistency, yes.

      Extraction and taste, no.

    • Improved consistency. Once you have it set you don't have to worry about pressure you are applying.

      I would add it has become a much more useful tool paired with a half decent grinder. I picked up a Breville Smart Grinder Pro a week or so ago, and now that I have that dialed in for my Breville Bambino, together with this tamper, I get the same coffee every single time.

  • Bought the 58mm Matow tamp/distributor recently from Amazon. Complained and got a refund and sent it back.

    The ends are different diameters. They don't fit my Breville dual boiler portafilter.

    Will look for my original review of this (58mm

  • Such a shame.
    I wanted to like this, from all over seen on YouTube vids about how easy it will make tamping…
