They are the only ones who have figured out how to get both ends of the spectrum to be good. Many grinders say they can do it all but either they are better at espresso or drip/press. Each end requires different KINDS of grinding, good luck in searching for another maker.
BTW, what is it that you don't like about baratza?

For me the grinder makes a big difference in espresso making where the grinder does more things than just grinding. It is really a part of the process. For the other brew methods plays a much less significant role. So if the Cuisinart DBM-8 serves you well I do not see any point of going for the Capresso. Honestly, if I knew the Cuisinart DBM-8 and its price I might have used this one in my example above. My point was why someone to look for one multi-purpose grinder and not for two where the non-espresso grinder is the low price one.
PS In my example the $89.99 Capresso that google landed me has conical burrs.
