The Unibasket™ is a portafilter basket created from a single, thick piece of stainless steel. Whereas typical baskets are made from thin wafers, the Unibasket™ is forged from a 1.2mm thick blank of metal, improving the rigidity of the puck during extraction by not allowing the bottom face to bow outwards.

  • BETTER EXTRACTION DYNAMICS

    The Unifilter™ created a portafilter revolution. Weber Workshops is extending that concept to the Unibasket™, utilizing the same construction and improvements on extraction that the Unifilter™ brought, but in a "drop-in" basket form.

    The Unibasket™ is a portafilter basket created from a single, thick piece of stainless steel. Whereas typical baskets are made from thin wafers, the Unibasket™ is forged from a 1.2mm thick blank of metal. The added thickness dramatically improves the rigidity of the puck during extraction by not allowing the bottom face to bow outwards, a common cause of puck cracking and channeling during extraction.

    The Unibasket™ is made from a solid piece of Stainless 304 material. All of the holes are individually laser-ablated and go right up to the vertical wall edge, giving a true 58.5mm puck from top to bottom. Now made for anywhere from 16g ~28g shots spread across four sizes (and all +/- ~1g with use or elimination of a puck screen or puck saver).

    • Compatibility:
      • The height of the Unibasket varies by size. If the existing basket in your spouted portafilter is shorter, the Unibasket may interfere with the bottom of the group handle.
      • The Unibasket will fit most bottomless group handles. It is NOT COMPATIBLE with bottomless group handles by ECM, Slayer, Gaggia, Rancillio and Breville.

      • 16g basket: ⌀71mm x H24mm (⌀2.8in x H0.945in)

Solid and interesting

A nice chance of pace compared to my vst or superfine baskets. White it’s fast flow, grinder super fine and piling tighter shots with it has given some surprising and tasty results as well

Tricky at first

Took a while to dial in my first solid espresso but figured it out. Great with light roasts. As with online reviews, shots are much faster and need to grind finer yielding higher TDS. Love that it comes with filters and puck screen. Get the large if you typically dose 18g to allow for the puck screen depth!

solid build quality and great shots

really hefty basket here with no flex when pulling, even up to 10 bar. I seem to be getting much more even extraction due to the holes going right up to the edge.

I will say it was a tight fit in my portafilter and it's much more difficult to knock the puck out afterwards, but I don't think there is much that can be done to avoid that with a flat walled basket

Excellent basket

Significantly better construction than VST/IMS, etc. Highly recommended. Note that it's not compatible with all bottomless portafilters since the holes on the bottom of the basket go to the very edge, and the walls are straight. The 16g version holds 16.5g nicely with enough room for a puck screen and several spare MM after tamping. It's roughly equivalent to the 18g VST.

Well Made Basket

Well made basket and over engineered like most Weber items. It has been nice to have this available to continue experimentation.

High Quality Basket

Right out the box, you can feel this product is of exceptional quality. I found the shots that this basket produced are more balanced. Only con is if you decide not to use the paper filters included, fines do get stuck in the holes.

Amazing

I upgraded from the portafilter basket that came with the Flair 58 to a Weber Unibasket I bought at Eight Ounce. Wow, what an improvement in espresso flavour. Even more impressive since I found I had to grind finer and am still "dialing in" the grind size.
