Question about FrancisFrancis! X1 - Stainless Steel Espresso Machine
Makes a beautiful cup of coffee BUT try to take off the basket to empty and refill and it just sticks in there. Have to get a kitchen knife every time to dig it out. The handle /container comes off but the basket stays up there. When it does come off it is so full of water it spills all over.
I have cleaned it off - any ideas, please?
I have the X1 and have this problem. I do two things - the first being (paradoxically) to tighten the handle a bit - that often frees the basket. If that doesn't work, I loosen the handle (to the point where it's quite loose) and then turn the pump on - that gives enough pressure to the basket to free it. So far, that's worked for me 100% of the time.
Good luck! -Greg
