Scott Glass (quality: 4.0) 05.17.2008 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: If your serous about your coffee, buy it, I dont think you will be disappointed.    I would like to add that buying high quality products that last for years do not contribute to our growing waste problem.
S Hanson (quality: 7.0) 01.01.2007 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Best pro-level grinder in this price range (get the doserless, not the doser, model--even though doser looks better)
Robert Turner (quality: 5.3) 01.04.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: I see why it's so popular and why so many people devote their time to make it even better.
Richard Wolfson (quality: 4.4) 11.08.2004 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: As advertised -- get over your fears of spending real money for a grinder and pull the trigger.  Go doserless. You won't be sorry.
Richard Ross (quality: 5.5) 06.17.2008 Rating: 9.2

Peter Farrell (quality: 6.0) 01.02.2005 Rating: 9.0
