Lance Goffinet (quality: 8.1) 11.11.2003 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: A fantastic grinder for drip, vacuum pot, and french press; does not grind fine enough for espresso.
R Long (quality: 5.5) 11.24.2003 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Grinder is easy to use.  I don't mind the excess ground coffee on the counter given that the coffee taste is wonderful.  What does rpm really have to do with it if there is no static and the taste is great?
C W (quality: 6.9) 12.25.2003 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Great at grinding for drip brew, but get used to cleaning the chute with toothpicks.
RA Schuppe (quality: 5.8) 01.09.2004 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Good solid, powerful, grinder that works for me (vac-pot & Moka Brew).
Lin Carol (quality: 4.7) 02.09.2004 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: "Don't waste your money on this piece of junk."
Coffee Girl (quality: 5.0) 02.14.2004 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: Great Looks, very unsatisfactory performance.
Ron Eric Edrosa (quality: 6.0) 04.08.2004 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Get your toothpick out to remove leftover grinds...but otherwise a nice sturdy machine.
Reed Nelson (quality: 6.2) 05.29.2004 Rating: 5.0
Bottom Line: A great looking product with very poor design and performance.
Erik Francey (quality: 5.6) 07.06.2004 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Good machine, must be modded to do espresso, no replacement parts???
Jon Rosenthal (quality: 4.2) 09.10.2004 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Maybe the best grinder anywhere (for Drip and French Press) for the money.
Keith McCandlish (quality: 2.5) 09.12.2004 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: Great idea, good looks but a lack of customer service makes this a risky purchase and it does not grind fine enough for espresso.
Kirstin V (quality: 6.6) 11.17.2004 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Looks really cool on the counter & built like a tank but grinds rather unevenly...  good for drip but not so hot for French Press...
Gillian Logan (quality: 5.3) 11.19.2004 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: I had high hopes; sadly still searching for a good grinder under 400 dollars.
Wayne Peterson (quality: 4.5) 12.08.2004 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Bulletproof, well-built, simple and fun machine (if you'll make Eric's modification for espresso).
Wooly Grrl (quality: 3.9) 01.26.2005 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Great machine for someone coming from a whirlyblade, make the mod, make the mod!
Purple Pig (quality: 6.0) 03.27.2005 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: I don't like it ( was - Good burr grinder for under $100. Good looks, no plastic and easy to clean)
Helen Nickells (quality: 5.6) 03.27.2005 Rating: 2.4
Bottom Line: Piece of garbage, don't waste your money
Marietta VB (quality: 7.2) 05.15.2005 Rating: 2.4
Bottom Line: If you like the looks, print off a picture and tape next to you coffee machine - don't actually try to use one of these.
Erik N (quality: 5.8) 08.03.2005 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Bottom line, stay away from this machine.
T. Marsee (quality: 7.0) 08.05.2005 Rating: 7.0
