Doc Dougherty (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: After five years (purchased in July 2006) of nearly daily use and no maintenance other than cleaning, I am happy with my grinder.
Stanley Wong (quality: 4.5)
Bottom Line: Great companion to the Silvia. Might have liked a doser version better. Hate the rocker switch. Needs to be clean well periodically.
Warren Bishop (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder, especially if you use only medium roasts or if the finger guard is removed-- easily done in 5 minutes!
Bottom Line: I love the Rancilio Rocky. It's performed very well and I love the consistent grind. My wife thinks I'm crazy but it looks great on the counter.
Michael Smith (quality: 9.5)
Bottom Line: On 3-month follow-up, I'm still extremely pleased with this grinder.
Donnie W (quality: 9.0)
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder that will accomodate every type of coffee grind. More grinder than most people will ever need.
Bottom Line: Near-prosumer quality for half the price.
Sharon Smith (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: A great grinder at a great price.
Kayakman Hungary (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Solid build and performer, perfect for home and secondary use at the coffeehouse.
Ryan Smith (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Requires a couple of workarounds to live up to the hype; Good choice for home users not ready to commit to the large dosered Mazzers, Macaps, etc.
Julienne Hsu (quality: 6.5)
Bottom Line: I like this machine alot, Great design, works fine.
Nick Gallant (quality: 5.3)

Troy Sheirer (quality: 6.7)
Bottom Line: Believe the hype - this machine is within the means of the average consumer and will deliver outstanding results.
Tim Eggers (quality: 8.5)
Bottom Line: If you're on a budget, can only have one grinder in your house and make many different types of coffee, you can't go wrong with a Rancilio Rocky Doserless! Highly recommended!
Bob J (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Bottmline.... Your coffee will taste as good as your weakest link, don't skimp on any one piece and especially your grinder.
Darren A (quality: 6.5)
Bottom Line: Impressed with quality of construction and griding. Cant imagine a non-dozerless setup
Derek Fong (quality: 8.8)
Bottom Line: Excellent grinder for the price: easy to use; nice doserless design that is good for home use; the Rocky gets you the 97th percentile of performance--you'd spend 2-3 times more to eek out 1-2% more performance
Vincent Sapone (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: great grinder
Don Scott (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Its reputation holds true, although there are some cheesey parts on it
Ed Wilson (quality: 6.3)
Bottom Line: Much improved espresso shots and ease of use make this the perfect companion for the Silvia espresso maker as well as all around grinder for day in/day out grinding duties
