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).

Bottom Line: Stay away from this grinder...it does not work.

Derrell Piper (quality: 7.5) 09.15.2006 Rating: 2.6

Keith Richmond (quality: 1.3) 03.03.2003 Rating: 5.2

John Boddie (quality: 7.0) 07.02.2006 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: A good initial grinder, particularly for those on a tight budget, but you'll want to move on to something better
Fred Houts (quality: 4.7) 03.27.2004 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Fun while it lasted.
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.
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
John Denver (quality: 6.0) 01.29.2003 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: Might be a nice grinder for espresso, but not for press pot.
Heather Delanghe (quality: 4.5) 07.23.2005 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: A good disposable entry-level burr grinder that is worth exactly what you pay for it -- ie not much...
