Bottom Line: Better than a Zassenhaus!
Alan Jarrett (quality: 4.5) 05.23.2008 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: This is just a workhorse and affordable for most. Solid, dependable, consistent and durable.
Allen Ginzburg (quality: 5.0) 06.26.2008 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: So you think a $100 grinder won't work for espresso... think again!
Anders Halskov-Jensen (quality: 7.0) 02.13.2002 Rating: 9.6
Bottom Line: Wanna try a burr grinder? Go get the Maestro.................
Ben Frey (quality: 7.0) 10.19.2004 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: For espresso afficionados not ready to make the jump to a Rocky or Mazzer Mini, this a good machine -- but only if given proper care.
Bijou Schmidt (quality: 1.0) 11.14.2011 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: look for a cheaper burr grinde, nothing special about this one for the price
Bill McMichael (quality: 7.0) 01.13.2003 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: The Solis Maestro handles the finer grinds but cannot produce the consistently coarse grind needed to produce excellent French press coffee.
Bill Miano (quality: 4.0) 02.20.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Must-have entry-level grinder if you want high quality espresso without breaking the bank. You will have to upgrade eventually.
Bill Way (quality: 6.3) 09.15.2002 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Must be one of the best buys in grinders and does an excellent job.
Bill Womack (quality: 8.3) 09.14.2007 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: If the price makes you flip, you must equip!
Bo Harrison (quality: 4.3) 08.07.2004 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: Good looks with a tricky design.
Bob Cosentino (quality: 6.5) 07.21.2004 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Great product and a great companion the Moka Brew.
Bob O‘Neal (quality: 2.5) 12.12.2001 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Lacks nostalga.  Coffee tastes best when I grind it myself.
Brad Chick (quality: 0.3) 09.09.2010 Rating: 4.6
Bottom Line: n/a
Brent Starks 06.19.2009 Rating: 9.0

Brewster Lewster (quality: 3.0) 04.30.2003 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: You get what you pay for.
C Becker (quality: 4.4) 10.06.2005 Rating: 0.0
Bottom Line: Beans other than black cat refuse to feed into the burrs.  Totally useless -  I literally smashed it on the garage floor (picture inside).
Charles Dow (quality: 4.5) 12.10.2003 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Good for drip grinds, quiet, indifferent ergonomics
Chris Mistler (quality: 5.3) 06.10.2009 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: Avoid this one.
Christopher Groppi (quality: 6.9) 06.23.2002 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Unless you have over $200 to spend on a grinder, this machine is IT.
