Dave Mclennan (quality: 2.6) 04.21.2010 Rating: 3.6
Bottom Line: has a  cheappy feel to it,  costs almost a weekspay, to much plastic, but does grind the beans properly, just alittle clumpy

Jack Black (quality: 8.0) 10.27.2013 Rating: 3.6

Joe Riordan (quality: 7.0) 12.03.2011 Rating: 8.2

Bottom Line: Ideal entry level espresso grinder; If you become seeker of espresso nirvana you will upgrade.
Kristian Tjemsland (quality: 7.4) 11.24.2009 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: The perfect first-time-buyer-grinder; might be a little pricey for many beginners, but it negates the need for two grinders (drip/FP/vac and espresso), thus saving money in the long run.
Mark Carter-Piff (quality: 8.7) 02.01.2012 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: Near titan class performance in a reasonably priced, flexible grinder.
Michael Barbuto (quality: 6.0) 07.19.2011 Rating: 10.0

Michael Barks (quality: 5.0) 07.09.2011 Rating: 9.6

Michael Wade (quality: 5.5) 07.14.2011 Rating: 9.2

Peter Russell (quality: 9.2) 01.08.2010 Rating: 7.8
