A prosumer level espresso grinder that has been on the market since 1991. Grinder has seen changes cosmetically since introduction, now featuring steel side panels. Features professional burrs and motor inside. At $380 (Feb '09) the price is on the high side.

Bottom Line: Despite a few frustrating quirks, this grinder can grind - consistently and at a fair price. In the end, this is what a grinder needs to do. There are better grinders out there, but they also cost more. Simple as that.
