Bottom Line: Great grinder whether it is the dosered or doserless model!
Thomas Gauperaa (quality: 7.1) 04.05.2003 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: The classic, rock solid espresso grinder without doser, no advantage
Dan Kehn (quality: 7.7) 06.09.2003 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Consistent and rugged, Rocky is still the champ!  The doserless avoids stale grounds and mess
Rick Waits (quality: 8.6) 09.22.2003 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: "Rocky" is a good name for it.  It well describes this tough, durable grinder.
Rob Novak (quality: 8.4) 01.23.2004 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: A real workhorse that should serve its owner for years.
Paul Wood (quality: 6.9) 03.18.2004 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Gets the Job Done
Tom O (quality: 7.7) 03.19.2004 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: A good grind requires a good vacuum.
Jim Tiemann (quality: 7.0) 05.02.2004 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Very highly recommended, an incredible grinder.
Bill Guthrie (quality: 6.3) 01.08.2005 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: The key to a consistently great shot of espresso is a great grinder - Rocky handily qualifies.
Michael Sacco (quality: 7.8) 01.19.2005 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: Rock Solid! Consistent Grind. A Classic.
Koray Ipek (quality: 8.1) 03.19.2005 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: A great grinder, solid, no gimmicks, just quality and great performance.
Teemu Pihlatie (quality: 7.5) 04.19.2005 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: A competitively priced doserless grinder - and among the best of its kind
James Hainsworth (quality: 7.3) 08.05.2005 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Great grinder, consistent, easy, versatile, and Rock(y) solid.
Sandy Andina (quality: 8.6) 08.22.2005 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: If you cannot drop $500 for a Mazzer (or find one used as cheaply as I did), you cannot do better than a Rocky.   For most purposes, it may well be the last grinder you'll need:  a Mazzer may be a Rolls-Royce, but driving a Lexus is no hardship .
Tom Bodet (quality: 7.2) 09.06.2005 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Stylish, quiet, does a great job but not worth the money due to the burr carrier tolerance problem.
Ed Wilson (quality: 6.3) 12.30.2005 Rating: 8.4
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
Don Scott (quality: 5.7) 01.17.2006 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Its reputation holds true, although there are some cheesey parts on it
Vincent Sapone (quality: 7.8) 03.28.2006 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: great grinder
Derek Fong (quality: 8.8) 10.11.2006 Rating: 9.0
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
Darren A (quality: 6.5) 12.14.2006 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Impressed with quality of construction and griding.  Cant imagine a non-dozerless setup
Bob J (quality: 8.0) 01.05.2007 Rating: 9.6
Bottom Line: Bottmline.... Your coffee will taste as good as your weakest link, don't skimp on any one piece and especially your grinder.
Tim Eggers (quality: 8.5) 02.12.2007 Rating: 8.8
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!
Troy Sheirer (quality: 6.7) 03.12.2007 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Believe the hype - this machine is within the means of the average consumer and will deliver outstanding results.
Nick Gallant (quality: 5.3) 09.09.2007 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Great results, relatively good looking, could use a better manual.
Julienne Hsu (quality: 6.5) 09.27.2007 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: I like this machine alot, Great design, works fine.
Ryan Smith (quality: 7.8) 02.16.2008 Rating: 6.0
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.
Kayakman Hungary (quality: 6.0) 10.05.2008 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: Solid build and performer, perfect for home and secondary use at the coffeehouse.
Sharon Smith (quality: 7.0) 10.06.2008 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: A great grinder at a great price.
Daniel Spiegel 10.11.2008 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Near-prosumer quality for half the price.
Donnie W (quality: 9.0) 09.01.2009 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder that will accomodate every type of coffee grind.  More grinder than most people will ever need.
Michael Smith (quality: 9.5) 01.14.2010 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: On 3-month follow-up, I'm still extremely pleased with this grinder.
Scott F 11.12.2010 Rating: 9.2
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.
Warren Bishop (quality: 4.0) 12.28.2010 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder, especially if you use only medium roasts or if the finger guard is removed-- easily done in 5 minutes!
Stanley Wong (quality: 4.5) 12.29.2010 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Great companion to the Silvia.  Might have liked a doser version better. Hate the rocker switch.  Needs to be clean well periodically.
Doc Dougherty (quality: 5.0) 08.28.2011 Rating: 7.6
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.
Hamish Simmers 12.01.2013 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Excellent
