I am buying the krups non pressurised basket for my ikon when stock is next available in around 8 weeks time, but, I have seem a mention of also replacing the seal with the krups seal. I assume this is refereing to the group head seal, but is that really necessary? Isnt the basket of the same size anyway and even if the seal did need to be changed, wouldnt a better match be a breville seal so it fits the shower screen and group better?

So, question is, can you replace just the basket and not the seal? I cant see why not?

thanks, James.
