Very sturdy construction, solid feel. Range is sufficient for espresso and vac pot. Minimal dust. Compact size that fits under my kitchen counter. Quiet and not bad looking.
Negative Product Points
Grinds tend to collect in the dispenser. I did devise a workaround for this, see detailed commentary.
I was looking for a new grinder. My previous grinders were both Zassenhaus, the Grain Mill and the more common open hopper models. Both created too much dust which tended to clog my vac pots. Maria at Sweet Maria's recommended this over the Mazzer since I do very little espresso and mostly vac pot coffee. The Mazzer was designed to be an espresso grinder.
This machine is solid. Great feel to it. The grind adjustment is precise and well machined. Grinds have very little dust and are consistent. The switches are robust and everything feels industrial.
The only negative I could find was the dispensing chute. Its a piece of folded stainless steel that tends to collect grinds. In order to remove it for cleaning you must unscrew the upper portion of the burr assembly, then remove a single screw that attaches to the main body.
I removed the dispensing chute and elongated the hole so that I ended up with an open notch. This allows me to remove the dispensing chute without disassembling the grinder. After grinding I simply pull out the dispensing chute and tap it to clear it of any residual grinds.
I'm very satisfied with this machine.
Bought from Sweet Maria's. Excellent service and good price.
