This is a top of it's class grinder and will work for years.
Positive Product Points
This is a great home grinder. It is very quiet, and it is so user friendly. Great range of grinds. Looks nice, and it is very fast at grinding yet doesn't seem to labor doing it. Easy to clean, and almost no static. You can grind directly into the portafilter.
Negative Product Points
The Top burr has a bit too much play and causes uneven grinds. It would be nice to have it weigh a bit more to make the grinding into portafilter less cumbersome. must be backed up to something in order to grind directly into the portafilter. It is a bit hard to dial in for espresso. Can hear some touching of the burrs at lower settings.
BANG for the buck!! This is by far the best of it's class. I use this as my grinder for 2 reasons. I have a Astoria grinder that I used for several years, and it was nice, but I have moved to a apt and just don't have the counterspace or airspace for the Astoria grinder, This is a very viable solution. I also use it to grind a variety of grinds from french press, Drip and espresso. This grinder can do it all. It is a bit hard to dial in again for espresso, but I have a pretty good idea of the setting and where it needs to be set to grind for it. It grinds fine enough to choke my Ellimatic.
