Detailed Commentary

I had been previously been using a Melitta Perfect Touch simply because of lack of budget. This grinder was one for the trash heap so when I got the money, I did a lot of research on new conical burr grinders. I finally decided on the Infinity and am very pleased thus far. I get a nice consistent grind out of this machine, goes without saying that it is better than the one I had previously used. The whole bean container has a top with a nice feeling seal on it. Although I haven't had any problems with it yet. the ground coffee container feels a bit loose when you close it.  It would be a bit better if it had a better fitting seal like the top of the whole bean container. Inside the whole bean container, you will find a small plastic cone on top of the burr assembly which connects to a flexible plastic cone on top of the upper burr. This seems to help feed the beans more efficently into the burrs. I think it also helps keep the ground coffee from spreading around inside the inner workings on the machine. The burrs look pretty good for a machine in this price range. They are stainless steel commercial grade conical burrs. The ground coffee transportation system is fairly effective as most of the ground coffee winds up in the container. Sometimes after grinding, if you adjust the consistency of the grind, you will notice a bit of the last batch's ground coffee shoot out. This is not really much of a problem as it is just a tiny bit. Another negative point is that the timer feels a bit flimsy. I've only owned this grinder a short while and haven't had a problem with it thus far. I primarily drink my coffee out of a Bodum FP with the occasional moka pot. This grinder does a pretty good job with both. You notice just a bit of dust when grinding but this is also a relatively inexpensive grinder. In this price range, based on experience and research, the Infinity seems like the best deal.

Buying Experience

Cafe Maison was fast in their shipping. Haven't had to deal with customer service.
