Positive Product Points

Versatile grind setting from French press to vacuum to espresso. Low speed, hi-torque cuts static fly of grounds. Easy to load and keep clean. Grind directly into portafilter with one press button.

Negative Product Points

Hopper feed sometimes stalls and you have to give the machine a bit of a shake to keep the beans feeding.

Detailed Commentary

Granted this is not a full bore pro grinder...but for the money ($129 USD), the maestro delivers a quality grind. Appears to be well engineered, designed, manufactured. It is relatively easy to clean to burrs, too. I could not be happier at this price.
