Dosing sucks, but works like a beast, looks good too
Positive Product Points
Sharp looks, Minimal clumping in the group, holds a fair amount of beans.
Negative Product Points
Rather hard to use, very clumsy, and doses away from the handle so your dosing is always off, 'clicking' feature worthless
I purchased this grinder used, I have owned it for 3 months now and I have had a mixed bag worth of experiences with this machine. First of all, the clicking feature on this machine (you use the portafilter to push a button that activates the dosing) is totally garbage, and the fact you cannot get the portafilter handle back far enough for the grounds to fall into the basket evenly. Other than those, the product hasn't hiccuped even once, even with almost 100lbs pushed through it. It's fairly easy to clean, and never gets that 'I'm dirty even though I'm not' look, and holds an impressive amount of beans for its size. I would probably buy something else if I was purchasing this brand new, but for $200, I can't complain too much.
