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.

Bottom Line: Wanna try a burr grinder? Go get the Maestro.................
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

James Hathaway (quality: 6.6) 08.14.2007 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: The Maestro delivers a lot of bang for buck; it grinds fine enough for espresso and coarse enough for press pot.
Michael Burwen (quality: 6.6) 03.28.2005 Rating: 2.6
Bottom Line: Worthless for grinding oily beans at any grind setting.
