Bottom Line: Good grinder for the money but a bit messy.

Bottom Line: A nice heavy countertop grinder for drip
Craig Kelliher (quality: 6.0) 10.10.2007 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Best price performer on the market.  Solid build, consistent results, stable weight, easy adjustability. Compact, handsome, tough.  Kinda like Brad Pitt.
Dave Mclennan (quality: 1.8) 10.06.2011 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: IF YOU HAVE 300$ FOR A GRINDER  THE LELIT PL53 IS THE ONLY ONE TO GET  FOR ME IT MATCHES 500$ AND UP GRINDERS ANY DAY

Don Rutherford (quality: 8.0) 02.07.2009 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: I CANNOT SPEAK TO ESPRESSO, BUT FOR MY MOKA-DRIP-PRESS NEEDS, THIS MACHINE EXCELS!
Donald Varona (quality: 7.8) 06.20.2007 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: A very good grinder for non-espresso coffee, if you don't mind its quirks.
Doug Rees 03.23.2013 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: I'm a very happy camper!!!
Eero Simoncelli (quality: 9.1) 12.30.2006 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Reasonable value for the price.  A few outstanding features, and a few drawbacks that can be worked around.
Frederick Schechter (quality: 6.3) 09.02.2006 Rating: 1.2
Bottom Line: Do not buy this machine! We have been Beta-testers for Baratza. If you must buy it or one of its off-shoots, call Baratza and ask for the new "SWEET" machine!!
Geary Lyons (quality: 8.4) 02.26.2006 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: The Virtuoso is a great all purpose grinder that will have its place on my counter for a long time!
Gone Gone (quality: 9.0) 11.21.2008 Rating: 9.6
Bottom Line: It works, no quirks.
