    Newbie looking for filter basket(s)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Guys n gals, let me preface this by being completely honest in saying that I am only here for my own short-term gain, and whilst I like a good coffee, I am not as passionate as others around here, nor am I likely to get involved in the forums in any meaningful way. I have searched and read through quite a lot of your forum, and it certainly looks like a comparatively friendly place, so Im hoping I may luck-out.

    Now, on to my issue. At the weekend, I bought a Sunbeam Club Cappuccino 120 at a local trash n treasure for the princely sum of $10. It was apparently an unused (I would agree, I can see no signs of use) gift which had been sitting in the shed for the better part of 10 years. I took it home and cleaned it up, running some water through it to verify the operation of the pump/heater, and to give things a good flush out.

    I then proceeded to make a cuppa, only to find that both the 1-cup and 2-cup baskets are missing. I have been in contact with Sunbeam who inform me that parts are no longer available for this machine, and none of the baskets from current machines are likely to fit. I see in some of the forums that people have used Krups baskets in Sunbeam machines, etc. so Im hoping that there is a solution.

    I can measure the diameter and depth of the portafilter if thats any help. Thanks in advance.

    You can try taking your portafilter to a retailer like Myer, Harvey Norman, Dick Smith, and trying out their baskets until one fits. Then order that one from the manufacturer.

    Hi and welcome mr short term gain. Im no expert but the Krups baskets you are refering to suit the current sunbeam models so i doubt they will fit your machine (although i may be wrong)! Perhaps a pic of your portafilter as well as the measurements will help.
