Bottom Line: "I'LL BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR!!!" ... but seriously it's a good, quality, "entry level" burr grinder that's a great starter unit for the home barista.
B T (quality: 9.0) 04.02.2012 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: It will either be the first grinder that you buy or the last grinder that you need; it depends upon you.
Connor McClellan 01.25.2012 Rating: 7.2

Martyn Haigh (quality: 2.0) 08.15.2011 Rating: 6.6

Alex DiCicco 02.23.2011 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Great entry level espresso grinder that should keep you satisfied for years to come.
Walter MacEachern (quality: 7.0) 02.19.2009 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Requires time and patience to use properly. The doser makes a mess. The grind is wonderful.
Grant G (quality: 5.7) 03.28.2008 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Great grind quality, very consistent, usable espresso grind range, price is excellent
Kurt Swanson (quality: 7.3) 01.29.2008 Rating: 8.4

David Walsh (quality: 6.8) 09.07.2007 Rating: 7.2

Mark Babbe (quality: 8.2) 09.07.2006 Rating: 8.6

Al Sterling (quality: 6.3) 12.30.2005 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: This is your best value "starting point" to properly support your espresso cravings.
Patrick T (quality: 7.7) 11.14.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Great value with enough quality that you may not need to spend hundreds more to improve upon.
Jason Haeger (quality: 6.6) 10.05.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: A decent beginners grinder, but not the workhorse it could be with its solid construction and commercial grade burrs.
Simon Vogel (quality: 4.0) 07.29.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: A great first grinder, that may outlast you
Grant Watt (quality: 5.4) 05.09.2005 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Built like a tank but they need cleaning and servicing every few years.  Do it yourself it is easy.
Daniel Roach (quality: 6.3) 08.30.2004 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Essential part of any beginners espresso setup
Robert Colin Newell (quality: 6.8) 05.23.2004 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Fix the feet and the flaky doser and you will have yourself a grinder that just makes the passing grade.
Lance Goffinet (quality: 8.9) 08.20.2003 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: Absolutely the best grinder for under $250 if you cannot afford the Rancillio Rocky or Mazzer Mini. It is a 10+ for the money.
John Gill (quality: 6.8) 07.06.2002 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: A good all around coffee grinder but not an exceptionally good grinder for espresso, due to its lack of adjustment points.
Bert Kenward (quality: 5.2) 02.20.2002 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Good burrs, shame about the doser.
Michael (quality: 5.3) 01.07.2002 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Its a great choice considering price
Simon Wilson (quality: 7.1) 12.19.2001 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Good/Excelent FIRST espresso grinder
Matthias Konig (quality: 6.0) 11.21.2001 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: Dont buy it unless you are sure you like/need the dosing mechanism
Jerome Harrison (quality: 5.0) 06.26.2001 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: I could not be happier with my decision to purchase the MDF.
Ed Gianni (quality: 6.8) 03.24.2001 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: A must for my Classic Gaggia.
Chris Schmelzer (quality: 4.1) 05.07.2000 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Great grinder for all uses
Jeroen Vriesendorp (quality: 7.3) 04.20.2000 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder: grinds anywhere from vac pot to ristretto
David Leone (quality: 5.7) 03.04.2000 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Great espresso grinder - but has something of a learning curve.
Antony Prince (quality: 6.6) 02.16.2000 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: The best grinder I have ever used, bring on the Rocky any day ;)
Jaime Athos (quality: 5.6) 02.04.2000 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: If you don't mind dosers, then the MDF is a great grinder for espresso!
Kris Grainger (quality: 7.0) 01.29.2000 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Consistant, fine as you want it grind with professional results. Shame about the casing and the doser though.
