Negative Product Points
Noisy, but a small price to pay
Careless use of the doser will result in a build up of stale coffee, spoiling your shots
The dispensing lever seems a little flimsy

For the serious espresso lovers, this is a must have. Sitting proudly next to my Gaggia Coffee, the MDF will grind almost to the atomic level, so beware. I have clogged up the espresso machine several times until I found the correct setting.
There is not a lot to say about the MDF. It is a fantastic grinder that goes above and beyond the call of duty. It does not even leave a mess behind, due to the fact that the doser is a molded part of the main housing. The doser has a removable lid, although I am not too sure why, as it would not be practical to pour water in there to clean it. I normally just dose out the remaining grounds until it is empty, reducing the risk of stale coffee which can spoil a potentially great shot of espresso.
For all those who are tired of hearing how great the Rocky is, the MDF is a god-send.
