Bottom Line: Worth the $89 on Amazon, this user friendly machine can grind espresso in it's finest settings and is definitely great for drip as well!
Richard Womer 10.01.2013 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Big step up from whirly, for not too much dough.
Michel Roberge 06.01.2012 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: For the price, it's a good bet, as long as you're not looking for an espresso grinder.
Adam Trimble 01.09.2013 Rating: 8.6

Bottom Line: Good grinder for the price once modified.
Evan Patton 10.04.2009 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: Good initial quality, but chronic clogging has me searching for a replacement after 18 months
Max Snook (quality: 2.3) 05.14.2009 Rating: 3.4
Bottom Line: Does not live up to its billing.
Brian Woodward (quality: 3.0) 03.17.2008 Rating: 8.2

Tim Hett (quality: 3.2) 03.17.2008 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Solid grinder delivers.  Very happy with this purchase.
Michael Ventura (quality: 3.3) 05.03.2009 Rating: 6.2
Bottom Line: After modifying to get a finer grind it only gets an "okay" espresso grind, not great (~20 sec's).  For same $$, my modified Baratza Maestro was better.
Craig Murray (quality: 4.0) 05.14.2008 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: old saying you get what you pay for  any one want to buy my breville
Eric Bain (quality: 5.3) 04.13.2014 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: a worthy purchase, but she's a chev not a caddi
Christopher Covolo (quality: 6.0) 01.26.2013 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Simple, small grinder for people that are buying their own beans - but loud.
Scot Murray (quality: 6.0) 11.01.2009 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Worked well for my Krups steam-powered, but isn't nearly fine enough for Miss Silvia... she's a demands more than it can produce.
Sherry Xu (quality: 6.0) 10.31.2009 Rating: 0.2
Bottom Line: DON'T BUY THIS ONE
Don Ferron (quality: 6.0) 10.14.2008 Rating: 9.8

Mike Filigenzi (quality: 6.5) 03.28.2009 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Solid unit - high quality and high value.
Johann Ramirez (quality: 6.7) 10.09.2008 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: A great starter grinder with quick modification is able to produce consistent high quality grinds for Espresso.
Dunno Lol (quality: 6.8) 10.26.2007 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: If you are looking for good espresso, step away from this grinder.
Ash Furrow (quality: 7.0) 08.30.2010 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: *Not* recommended for espresso. Good starter grinder after I modified it, but wore out quickly. Get a better starter grinder if you can at all afford it.
