Positive Product Points

- grind quality
- doser
- the look of the grinder

Negative Product Points

- size. i have to cut down the hopper so it fits under my kitchen cabinets
- machine runs always with the same loudness. i canīt figure out, if beans are still left for grind
- integrated tamper is too small. it doesnt fit 58mm baskets

Detailed Commentary

first, please excuse my bad english skills.

the grinder is a rarely used gastro machine. the grinder blades are in good condition. compared to my old grinder, an tuned tchibo/tcm grinder, the grind quality is unbelievable good. very consistent grinds. the cimbali junior grinds very fast. very fine adjustment of the grind size is possible.
i like the industry look of the grinder. Like others said before, it is built like a tank.
replace for broken parts, if ever needes, are in germany availible for low prices.
This is my first review after one week of use. A 3 month follow.up will come.

Buying Experience

i bought it from an forum member of kaffeboard.de, a german community for coffeelovers.
