Steve Steiman (quality: 1.0) 01.25.2000 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: On the whole, a fine machine.  However, it doesn't stack up well against the Briel Java

S. Marc Testa (quality: 5.0) 03.14.2002 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: Semi-decent product, makes good DRIP coffee, slight step up from blade.
Robert Shupp (quality: 7.0) 07.03.2002 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: OK if you are making drip/press only and don't mind a mess
Richard Floch (quality: 7.5) 01.13.2002 Rating: 1.8
Bottom Line: Don't buy it. If you have one, toss it and get a decent grinder.
Phillip Quattrocchi (quality: 5.7) 06.25.2002 Rating: 3.6
Bottom Line: All in all if you cannot afford Rocky or better this will do the Job. Otherwise beaware of its short commings.
Peter Bishop (quality: 7.5) 04.25.2003 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: Don't waste $50... not even if it's just for drip.
Paul (quality: 5.0) 12.09.2001 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Works well for drip and french press.
Mike McGinness (quality: 8.3) 12.29.2001 Rating: 3.0
Bottom Line: Garbage, used one week, ordered a Solis! Gave the Capresso away...
Michael Hardy (quality: 7.8) 01.05.2002 Rating: 3.4
Bottom Line: Slightly better than a hammer.
Matt Plezia (quality: 2.0) 02.21.2001 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: Does not grind fine enough for pump driven espresso makers
Matt Kiessling (quality: 7.5) 02.08.2002 Rating: 2.2
Bottom Line: Stick with your whirly-blade and save your cash for another burr-grinder. Any other burr-grinder.
Lori (quality: 6.7) 03.29.2001 Rating: 2.8
Bottom Line: DO NOT BUY THIS GRINDER!  It is better than a chopper grinder, but not by much.
Lance Goffinet (quality: 8.5) 12.07.2003 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: This grinder is barely adequate for drip coffee, but definately better than a blade grinder.
