Misadjusted from factory
I bought mine for $100 because it had been returned and the box was open. I quickly learned the thing was misadjusted from the factory (probably why it was returned) and would only grind on it‘s highest setting. Took it apart and adjusted it (took all of five minutes) and I was in business. From what I‘ve seen this seems to be a common problem with this model. The inside inspection reveals the thing has some plastic parts, but seems to be metal where it needs to be. I‘ve used it for 2 months now without a problem. It‘s not commercial grade, but it‘s also far from the $40 grinders you‘ll find at the department stores. If you have to pay the full price of $160, I would throw in another $60 and buy the Rancilio "Rocky". If you can find one for $100, buy it. Just beware of getting one incorrectly adjusted if you‘re afraid of adjusting it yourself. If you‘re at all mechanically inclined you won‘t have a problem adjusting it. Just pry the two pins up with a screwdriver once your inside and rotate, then put the pins back in. Once correctly adjusted it will produce everything from a course grind for drip coffee to the finest turkish grind for espresso.
