Bottom Line: A Good Grinder to Start Coffeegeek-ness
Positive Product Points

I am told it is a reasonable price, or so I am told as it was a gift.  Easy to use and easy to clean on a daily basis.  Produces very good results.

Negative Product Points

I have found that this grinder develops quite a bit of built-up grim on the inside (Takes some time every of couple of months to clean).  No one would give this grinder an award for being quiet.

Detailed Commentary

I particularly like the fact that the Gaggia MM does not have a doser, as I mostly use either a Vac Pot or French Press for my coffee.  So if you are looking for an grinder for your espressos I would suggest something else, moreover I find that the MM is unable to produce a fine enough even grind for my espresso machine.

A couple of times I have completely disassembled the grinder to give it a good cleaning.  This is a must do.  Within the grinder the buildup of coffee dust becomes pretty severe.  I also found that by taking the machine apart I was able to readjust it to bring the burrs closer together permitting a finer grind.

This grinder has been good to me for the last two years.  It is now time I move up the scale.  For anyone looking for their first grinder I would suggest the Gaggia MM, unless you main interest is in espressos.
