Basically save up for something decent, and dont waste money on something that "looks" like its a real burr grinder, because clearly its not..
Positive Product Points
The machine looks pretty, with its stainless highlights, large hopper, and attractive looking receptacle. I like the timer function built into it and it seems to be very affordable.
Negative Product Points
It doesnt work. I drink mainly espresso, and this machine is pretty much useless if you dont have a pressurized Portafilter. It is not even the fact that it cant grind fine enough. There are large boulders left in the grinding, there is an excessive amount of dust left in the grind, and the static is extreme making a mess everywhere. Furthermore grinds get stuck to the inside of the container because of all the static.
I bought this a while ago, after reading a review on here saying it was ok to use for espresso if you modified it. I first used it without modding it, and it wouldnt work for espresso. I then took it apart and shimmed the burrs, so I could get a finer grind setting. This thing is still useless it now grinds more than fine enough, but the grinds are so inconsistent and filled with static that you cant pack the PF properly and you get channeling, no crema, and the espresso tastes disgusting. I wouldnt recommend this for anyone. I owned a grindmaster 875 industrial grinder, and although its not designed for espresso, I was able to make coffee that was much much better. I have since sold that machine, and placed an order for a Rancilio Rocky. My advice dont cheap out on a grinder it wont even satisfy you short term until you get the money for a good machine. By a used commercial unit, or a good new grinding unit. You might as well go out for coffee than drink the swill produced by the incosistent grinds.
Pleasant buying experience. Was a display model, so I got it real cheap. Unfortunately because it was a display, and the last one in the store i couldnt return it. Other than that I was satisfied with the service.
