  • Description
  • Specs
  • Method
  • Replace that leaky gasket in the group head of your Rancilio espresso machine with this neutral and aroma-free silicone gasket. The soft consistency creates a better seal and makes installation even easier.

    • 8.4mm conical design and external grooves match standard Rancilio group head gaskets
    • Heat resistant silicone
    • Forms tight seal without tightening the portafilter as much as a standard gasket
    • Fits all Rancilio espresso machines, including Rancilio Silvia
    • 78mm x 58mm x 8.4mm Green Silicone Gasket
    • Petroleum based grease can degrade silicone. Use a silicone lubricant instead, ideally a food safe white grease.
    • Use the portafilter with the basket removed to install the gasket to avoid breakage

Much Softer than the Standard Gaskets

This went in a bit easier than the standard and is a lot softer. What that means for durability and ease of removal (the worst part of the standard ones) is yet to be seen. I'm hopeful that this will be easier to remove when older. One of the other reviewers mentioned it shouldn't harden over time so we'll see how this goes! So far there is no leakage when pulling shots which is the main function of the gasket.

Good Gasket

Great replacement for the standard gasket. As it is silicone they should not harden over time, they are softer so you have be to be a bit more careful with installation. Recommended

Works better than the OEM gaskets

I did some research to find out how to improve the shots on my Rancilio Silvia. I noticed my portafilter was occasionally leaking a bit of water, so I bought an OEM gasket. However, I checked and found out that eight ounce carries these gaskets which are softer, apparently creating a better seal. Keep in mind that I can't isolate this variable because I changed the shower screen, gasket and installed a PID on my silvia all in one swing, but what I can say is this gasket works great. My shots don't leak anymore and installation was easy (it's just getting out the old gasket that is tricky). If your group head is leaking, there might be a cheap fix, this gasket.
