Beautiful, functional, relatively inexpensive and it produces quality coffee grinds.
Positive Product Points
Quiet & attractive. Very consistent grind results. Easy to clean and dispense. Very heavy base makes it stable, and one-handed operation will not tip it over. Easy to take out the top burr for cleaning. Big range of grind settings. 40 to be exact. Everything from Turkish to French Press.
Negative Product Points
Static problems make some coffee stick to inside of dispenser which makes it a little harder to clean. Dispenser seems to wiggle just a little bit forward if grinder is on for more than one minute. This makes some coffee sneak behind the dispenser.
I had always had the blade type grinders, then I thought I was really moving up when I paid $50 for a Braun. Well this thing for $150 really is great. Bigger capacity, very quiet, and the grounds are really consistent. You can also fine tune the grind size to taste. The instructions are basically one page which is good. I like the fact that it is Swiss designed, but made in USA. I love the heavy base, and the elegant look. Although this is my first "real" burr grinder, I can tell quality when I experience it. This is quality. Of course you can get quality for $300+, but I think for most home users, this unit or maybe the Rocky are about as much as you should spend (just an opinion).
I had problems, as mentioned before about the dispenser. Well, Baratza decided to send me a replacement unit. Great Service!
Great. Ordered it one day, showed up a few days later. No Tax or shipping charges.
