Positive Product Points

Heavy, solid machine that should last if you take care of it. Large burrs grind quick and even. Stepless adjustment a good pairing with prosumer espresso machines. Doserless model has a great angled spout for evacuating grounds. Cleanup is easy with a brush and a chopstick. Vacuum it carefully once in a while.

Negative Product Points

As with all doserless grinders I wish there were a way to eliminate static/clumping and a more efficient design to keep grinds from building up in the chute.

Detailed Commentary

This is a fantastic machine. If you have a prosumer or commercial machine you may want a grinder that has stepless adjustments, slow rpm and bigger burrs. The hopper is short, which is good for fitting it under the cabinets. The grinder is fairly quiet when compared to my Rocky. Grind speed is good, though not something I was concerned about anyway. The grind chute could be better, but this is a gripe with all doserless models. As I use it more I will add more details to this review.

My machine was slightly used at a demo at a store so it was not spotless but everything works great and the chrome is shiny.

Buying Experience

Bought from espressodealer.com through ebay. In-store demo machine...slightly used.
