Detailed Commentary

I love the very concept of this product.  Small, practical, economical, and great-looking.  I wish more companies would take some of these factors into account when designing, manufacturing and selling things.  

At first I was a little uncertain about hitting something plastic with something metal, but the bar is pretty tough, and that's what counts.  I don't store it on my drip tray, but apparently it will fit there on most machines.  It seems a little crowded and awkward on my Pavoni PRH, but it will fit there provided I remove my portafilter and store that some place else.

Other than that, it's a knockbox, what else can be said about it.

Buying Experience

I bought it from Dreamfarm's website as there were no resellers in the country where I'm living.  The shipped it a few days after I paid with PayPal (I think they may only ship on certain days of the week).  It arrived in good time.  A hassle-free purchase.
