With the introduction of their PRO models, all Flairs were updated to be cross-compatible with the same portafilter base.
On new production of Classic and Signature models from 2019 onward, these portafilter bases contain a black Adaptor Ring insert to accommodate the narrower Standard portafilters. By removing this ring, these models may equally accommodate the PRO portafilter and brew head.
Conversely, PRO models require the addition of this Adaptor Ring in order to be compatible with the Standard portafilter and brew head.
Black adaptor ring insert: included with new production of Classic & Signature models; required for PRO models to accept Standard portafilters.
NOTE: Earlier production Standard portafilter base, which contains a narrower interior and exterior diameter, cannot accept PRO portafilters.

Born from a desire to make espresso without any unnecessary gadgetry or the complexity of high-end machines, Flair set out with one mission: to make espresso in the comfort of one's home or anywhere you go.
Combining thirty years of engineering experience and a love for pure, delicious espresso, Flair created a simple, elegant, and affordable solution that speaks to their mantra of enjoying the process as much as the destination and slowing down to savour the best things in life—like espresso made right.
Made of high-grade aluminum and stainless steel, the Flair Espresso Maker comes with a 5-Year limited warranty on Press Stand & Brewing Cylinder. Parts that are more subject to normal wear and tear, such as O-rings, Silicone Sleeve, Piston, and Portafilter are warranted against defects in material, design or workmanship for 6-months, although these items are expected to last beyond the warranty.
