Henry Townsend (quality: 1.8) 05.03.2010 Rating: 5.2

Bottom Line: Good grinder, fragile construction
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.
Andre Preoteasa (quality: 4.0) 01.12.2005 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: Drop another $100 on a Mazzer and forget the Rocky if you're serious about espresso.
Becky Grimsrud (quality: 4.3) 11.20.2004 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Good grinder for the price, but do yourself a favour and go for top-of-the-line.
Scott Smith (quality: 4.3) 09.16.2004 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder if you buy the doserless unit.
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.
