    Interesting find Lizzi, makes a fair bit of sense inside a group handle.

    I also noticed they said:
    "La Marzocco is even considering offering these portafilters and Teflon coated steam wands as an option on their new machinery."

    I would like to see how the steam wand goes, I would expect it would be nearly self cleaning.

    Why not take it a step further and coat the jugs too? If nothing else it would save a lot of water in the wash-up.

    WOW! Interesting....
    I know weve been using Teflon coated pans for a while now, but all those rumours about Teflon being bad for kitchen use (as far as what ends up in us) still spins in my mind; so I looked it up on the DuPont Website regarding its safety if anyone is intersted:

    (n.b. What is "conventional kitchen use"?)

    There is definitely something that makes me want one of these Teflon coated PFs though ;)

    A bit pricey atm unless Dennis would like to consider a group order of 50+? ;D

    I guess this excerpt from their Q&A explains it fairly well.....
