Posted Sun May 5, 2013, 7:39pm Subject: Grinder Height Comparison
For folks shopping for a home grinder, here's a comparison you may find useful. It's the heights of grinders. The heights without hopper were measured from photos and are rounded to the nearest half inch, so they may be inaccurate. Heights of some models (e.g., Super Jolly) may have changed over time. Feel free to correct/add to.
Hopper Without Hopper Gaggia MDF 11.5 8 Nemox Lux/ 11.8 7.5 Ascaso I2/ LeLit PL043/ Pavoni PG/ Vaneli's Mini Pro II KitchenAid Pro Line 13.5 9 Rancilio Rocky 13.75 10.5 Bezzera BB004 14.25 9.5 Le'Lit PL53 14.5 10 Baratza Vario 14.5 10 Anfim Best / Pasquini Mok 15 9 Ascaso I-1 16.25 10.5 Mazzer Mini 16.5 (short hopper) 11.5 Compak K3 16.5 12 La Cimbali Junior 16.9 (shortest 64mm) 13.5 Nuova Simonelli Grinta 17 11 Macap M4 17 11.5 HG One 17 17 Rancilio MD40 17.3 11 Fiorenzato T-80 22 13.5 Laranzato HC-600 22 14 Nuova Simonelli MDX 23 13 Nuova Simonelli Eureka MDME 23 14 Macap MXK 23.6 13.5 Mazzer Super Jolly 24 14 Mazzer Major 25 15-16 Rossi RR45 25 16 Compak K6 (2003) 25 15.5
I think this a great table to have around. However, I'm curious why you didn't get actual spec measurements, rather than making them off of photos? That would make it so much more trustworthy. Also, not to be over critical (I hope), but there are short and tall hopper options for several of the grinders listed.
Again, I think the table you compiled is GREAT! and applaud you for creating it!
