Detailed Commentary

i got my delonghi burr grinder under the sale combo that hearthware was giving up until a short while ago (mar'2002) i paid 21 bucks for it so keep that in mind when i talk about it. at that price it is a great burr grinder.i have never had the chute clog on me like my solis mulino which cost me 75 bucks although the grind quality is not nearly as good. this grinder is not for espresso not even close. you get alot of dust and i would say it is only good if you are going to make auto-drip coffee where the dust will not get into the coffee. the noise level is pretty loud. i have to close over my bedroom door as the rest of the family says it is too loud (get the picture?) it is a flat burr set up and the housing is all plastic. there is alot of static. about the same as my mulino grinder. but it does not get jammed with beans like my mulino as the hopper is well designed.i would buy again if i was a beginner in the coffee hobby. like i said at 21 bucks you can't go wrong but at 50 bucks which is the msrp i can't say it is a great deal.

Buying Experience

no problems. came easy to figure out how to use. have to hold down the button to have grinding action

Three Month Followup

have had the grinder  over a year. put away for about 6 months to use my mulino until i sent my mulino back to baratza for repairs. find the grinder a godsend compared to the pain in neck procedure i have had to use with the mulino
