Bottom Line: Huge step up from blade grinders, though if I was in the market for another, I'd be tempted to look at the Solis.
Dennis Vogel (quality: 6.0) 10.15.2005 Rating: 5.0
Bottom Line: Waste of time for Espresso. Should have put the money towards a better grinder. Live and learn.
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.
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
Chris Schaefer (quality: 2.0) 02.17.2000 Rating: 6.0

Jeremy Close (quality: 6.5) 04.29.2003 Rating: 6.0

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.

Matt Plezia (quality: 2.0) 02.21.2001 Rating: 6.4

Ty Wentworth (quality: 3.0) 03.04.2001 Rating: 6.4

Scott Gay (quality: 6.0) 02.23.2003 Rating: 6.6

Beth Sanguine (quality: 9.0) 09.05.2006 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Great grinds for bean novices and those of us with "set incomes."
Bruce Honnigford 01.11.2009 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: For $50 it's fine for med to coarse grinds on a budget. For $5 it's a gift from a god.

Don Eylat (quality: 1.0) 09.26.2006 Rating: 7.0

Steve Steiman (quality: 1.0) 01.25.2000 Rating: 7.2
