Hi folks -- sorry if this is a clue-less question, but is it easy to convert a Mazzer Mini with doser to doserless? Or is that a big headache?

Thanks!

I think it's a headache but many have done it and like it.

You tend to get static and the grounds flying sideways and sticking.

I find the doser very convenient - but the noise of the clacking does tempt me, sometimes, to convert to doserless.

Whenever I see a cheap, stainless martini shaker at the thrift store (some of them have a narrow bottom), I am tempted to buy it and make a doserless funnel out of it.

While I like the doser over doserless (I have had both) depending on your wallet, it is a VERY easy conversion. Mazzer sells the doserless funnel and adapter plates. They screw on in 5 minutes and it is a clean conversion.
If you want to DIY, it gets much more involved.
My PERSONAL opinion is that the debate doser/doserless is much over blown and there really isn't that much difference. I prefer to have the cleaner and much more user friendly doser but YMMV.
