Greg Hancock (quality: 7.6) 11.15.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Excellent aesthetics,  almost industrial design,  and does its job well.  Minor problems pale in light of its overall excellence.
Steve Engelbrecht (quality: 7.4) 11.10.2003 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: This is the most beautiful grinder I 've ever seen, but it does have drawbacks.
Adam Reisner (quality: 5.3) 04.21.2004 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: i expect to be grinding my drip with this for quite some time
Eli Kaynan 02.09.2010 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: For the price, look elsewhere.
Shannon Ayres (quality: 4.3) 02.19.2006 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: For the money, this is a good grinder with many thoughtful features to outweigh the several design flaws.
Donny Raus (quality: 8.6) 02.02.2007 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: There are better grinders that deliver a more uniform/consistent grind at a lower cost. However, if aesthetics, usability, and hopper capacity are priority and your willing to compromise the grind and beverage quality this machine is for you.
Kent Simmons (quality: 7.3) 05.01.2007 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: A great machine IF you like your coffee French or if you like espresso - but its not capable of both grinds without recallibration.
Christopher Boffoli (quality: 7.1) 04.27.2004 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Dualit-like industrial design, heavy and durable, most details done right, other major things overlooked. Not bad overall.
Ted O (quality: 7.5) 02.18.2006 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Nice Appearance, Feel and Quality.. but Not Really Designed and Built for Espresso Enthusiasts
Byron Ala (quality: 7.3) 11.13.2007 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: If you like to mod products and can get this for cheap, it may be for you, otherwise, buy something better.
Tom Bodet (quality: 6.8) 09.06.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Nice attempt at a multi purpose grinder but falls a bit short.
Alan Bryant (quality: 7.4) 10.22.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Attractive, well-built machine that will satisfy some, but probably not espresso "power users."
Stefan L (quality: 6.0) 11.28.2012 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Heavy duty grinder that gives heavy duty results.
Joel Finkelstein (quality: 5.8) 11.16.2006 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Great grinder once you realize grinds only look too big. I only wish it didn't trap so many beans or was easy to clean on a daily basis.
RA Schuppe (quality: 6.8) 11.19.2003 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Too bad about some of this grinder's design flaws. KA says they're considering a revision. Hope they're listening.
Ola Bovin (quality: 4.0) 11.12.2012 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Grinder could last a life time if the burrs, auger, bearing and adjustment had been made from higher quality and precision. Motor and the casing is heavy and strong. I like the way it looks.
