Cafelat's latest Knockbox, it called "Home Knockbox"
The knock bar is 1 solid one piece design, much more substantial than before and without plugs that come out.
The design has been registered!
The home knockbox may be small but it can comfortably hold 10 double pucks of coffee before it needs emptying. To empty just lift the rubber bar out and discard the coffee as you wish. A silicon ring on the bottom prevents it moving about the place and also helps to reduce the noise.
To wash we recommend you just give it a rinse in mild detergent. The plastic tub is dishwasher safe but we are not sure you need to go that far as a mild rinse works every time.
Material: ABS plastic, silicone, rubber and stainless steel.
Height incl. base : 13cm
Product Weight : 448g
This is much larger size for the serious home barista or the coffeeshop.
The main body is stainless steel with a brushed finish, the bar has a solid stainless steel inner core with a very durable TPR overmould and all other parts are silicone rubber.
Inside is a beautiful satin bead blasted finish.

The drop knockbox was designed for busy coffee bars. The knockbox sits in the countertop and allows the used coffee pucks to drop through to a rubbish bin inside the counter. This knockbox is pretty much a Classic Knockbox with the lower half removed but is still sturdy and built like a tank.
The rubber components of this product minimise noise - there is nothing worse than the clanky noise that emits from those cheap aluminium catering inserts converted to knockboxes.
The raised back prevents backsplash, if you have watery pucks and need one of those enormous back splashes that clips onto a knockbox you may need to evaluate your grind and dosing ritual :)
To install you need a square hole cut out in your table top.
Apart from the lower gasket, all parts are the same as the Classic Knockbox and replacement parts are available.
