Beth Connors (quality: 7.3) 10.04.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Unless you handle high volume grinding, get the doserless.  It's much easier to use and produces great results.

Bottom Line: Fantastic, Reliable, Dependable, Simple to Opperate.
Gino Magnotta (quality: 8.0) 05.14.2008 Rating: 8.0
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.
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.
