We love it.
Review by Darlene D. on 12 Jan 2020 review stating We love it.
The knock box is working out perfectly. It's the right size for us, about 4 lattes a day, empty twice a week into the composter. It's handsome and rugged, like my barista.

Agree with both reviews - It's way better without the rubber edge.
Review by Yeahman on 16 Sep 2019 review stating Agree with both reviews - It's way better without the rubber edge.
I've had this knock box for a couple years now and I'm very happy with it. First off, it's sturdy and gorgeous and cleans up easily. That said it does have that ridiculous black rubber edge on the top rim that I is very frustrating (it comes off easily). Once I decided to take that off I realized that not only does it look a lot better, it's far easier to clean too. So all an all I would say get rid of the rubber edge that serves absolutely no function. It looks really stylish without it and works very well and is easy to clean.

Fantastic knock box
Review by Jeff on 25 May 2017 review stating Fantastic knock box
Love this Motta knock box which is constructed of high quality stainless steel with an excellent fit and finish. I agree with the previous review regarding the rubber edge around the rim. I removed this after the second day and never looked back. It has a much better appearance without the rubber for which it had no functionality in my opinion. One smack of the lower portafilter edge on the center bar is all that is needed. The stainless finish complements my Lucca M58 well without that plastic appeareance of other knock boxes on the market. I anticipate that the rubber on the center bar will eventually wear out and require replacement, however after 1.5 years, no splits or cracks with almost daily use. Indestructible and cleans up easily mostly with some hot water. I am very pleased with this product's aesthetics, quality and performance.

Replaced. Couldn't take it anymore.
Review by Erik on 19 Jul 2016 review stating Replaced. Couldn't take it anymore.
This knock box works very well on some levels _„_‘_durable, attractive stainless steel, and very sturdy. It's downfall, and it's a major one, is the circular, rubber liner that surrounds the top of the knock box. That piece is a complete nuisance, and displaces often especially while washing the knock box. It's design requires that two cutouts along its edge line up with the center bar where it meets the edges of the knock box. However, the cutouts are poorly cut and aligned, causing the thing to pop off easily. Grounds also get caught in its under side groove when washing. It's a bit difficult to explain, but incredibly frustrating. Hesitant to throw something like this away, I'm donating it. I've since purchased a Cafelat Tubbi (small), which looks much more straightforward and smart in its design (two pieces, vs six).
