Subject: Cunil MC5 Grinder?
 

I'm looking for a grinder to go with my Silvia, which is arriving in a few days.

Unfortunately, price is important. I was considering the Ascaso i 2 grinder, at 150 pounds. However, having read a few reviews, it seems to be quite poor. The better model, the i 1, is unfortunately too expensive, at 210 pounds. (I'm a student, so, unfortunately, my finances aren't likely to improve in the near future).

So, i was searching for an alternative. I came across a site selling Cunil MC5 Grinder. Which i am led to believe is the same as the iberital MC5. Seeing as it is only 110 pounds, it's well within my price range.

Are there any opinions on this grinder? Is the brand reputable?

Thanks alot

Jonathan

I'm pleased with my Cunill, as many other people are pleased with theirs.

Some people have reported problems.  From what I recall, the problems are from the doserless design (the MC5 has a doser), or the electronic timer (the MC5 doesn't have that, it's only on the doserless model), or one of the burrs came loose (something which you should notice and be able to fix with a screwdriver when you're doing your every-other-week cleaning).

If you pay attention, I think you can make it work well for you.
