Positive Product Points
Excellent home conical burr grinder for Press, Drip, Vac, Espresso.
Negative Product Points
A bit light weight for one hand operation do to plastic housing.
Produces a very even grind with virtually no powder. Very quiet operation. Very little static cling. The bean feed bin is nice and steep and feeds beans to burrs well. Almost no grinds hang up in direct down chute. Catch bin fits nice and tight keeping grounds from flying. Good 18 step grind range. Haven't tried the finest for Turkish yet... Don't compromise dollars for a cheaper burr grinder like a Braun or Capresso, been there done that. This grinder is to replace my Solis Mulino 177. The Maestro is indeed superior to to good but noisy and messy Mulino. I highly recommend it!

If you start to get "static cling", simply wash the hoppers with soapy dish water and dry. Static gone! Simply great grinder. (great friends with Miss Silvia...)
One Year Followup
Before getting Miss Silvia the Maestro seemed a great upgrade from the Mulino. Great grinder for coarser grinds. However, once I started grinding finer for espresso the poor burr carrier design (plastic) allows too much slop, hence the burrs touch and dull. While the upper burr is easily replaced, the lower burr is not. I still recommend the Maestro, for all BUT espresso or finer grinder. I've gotten rid of mine, now use SS Rocky...
