Bottom Line: Get one!
Louie Woodhams (quality: 7.0) 03.15.2008 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Nice grinder, but not enough range for espresso.
Marc Tischler (quality: 7.8) 08.29.2007 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Very affordable burr grinder with nice aesthetics, small footprint, and most importantly good grind. Great first grinder if you are on a limited budget.
Max Snook (quality: 2.3) 05.14.2009 Rating: 3.4
Bottom Line: Does not live up to its billing.
Meta Phoric (quality: 7.0) 09.23.2007 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: A Conical Burr Grinder for the rest of us...
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.
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.
Michelle P (quality: 8.3) 05.13.2008 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: I think it's the perfect burr grinder for french press coffee!
Mick Paulin (quality: 8.0) 01.11.2010 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Excellent machine when it's not broken...
Mike Filigenzi (quality: 6.5) 03.28.2009 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Solid unit - high quality and high value.
Pat D'Arcy (quality: 8.0) 08.20.2007 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Decent grind, attractive appearance, no static and not too loud.
Paul Jones 10.08.2007 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Good grinder for the price once modified.
Richard Womer 10.01.2013 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Big step up from whirly, for not too much dough.
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
Tim Hett (quality: 3.2) 03.17.2008 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Solid grinder delivers.  Very happy with this purchase.
Tyler Noble (quality: 7.5) 03.03.2009 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: After a simple no-brainer modification, this grinder is great for espresso!!
