John Smith (quality: 6.6) 10.29.2005 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: Loved it for the six weeks I had with it before it broke. They just can't seem to make this model reliable.
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...
