Bottom Line: This machine is great value for money. You can spend more money for a chic steel exterior, but I'd say stick the extra cash in your grinder fund instead!
Brad C. (quality: 8.5) 01.12.2007 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Commercial size 58mm PF, great functional design for the money.  Unbeatable as far as machines in the $200 or less price range go.
