La Marzocco 9mm Beveled Group Gasket fits most models of La Marzocco espresso machines.
This beveled gasket from La Marzocco is the thicker version to be used in machines and those with wear. It is approximately 7mm thick on the outer edge and 9mm thick on the inner edge. Using this gasket causes your portafilter to lock in and stop sooner, returning it to how it was when new.
When installed correctly the flat part of the gasket will be inserted into the group head and the beveled, not so flat part will be facing down toward the portafilter helping make a nice, tight seal.
Regularly replacing your group gaskets will wear your machine less (no need to over grind the portafilter ears into the group) and will make your work flow much nicer. Who wants to have to smash a portafilter into a group hoping it's going to seal just to get a leak and end up wasting a shot? No one.
When it's time to replace the gasket in your machine, a scratch awl is the tool for the job. Remove the screen, push the pointed end of the awl into the gasket and pry it out against the side of your group. It should pop out fairly easily if the group gasket hasn't gotten hard.
