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!
Vincent Sapone (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: great grinder
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.
Tony Gilnett (quality: 8.5)
Bottom Line: Excelent grinder for price.
Tom O (quality: 7.7)
Bottom Line: A good grind requires a good vacuum.
Tom Bodet (quality: 7.2)
Bottom Line: Stylish, quiet, does a great job but not worth the money due to the burr carrier tolerance problem.
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!
Thomas Gauperaa (quality: 7.1)
Bottom Line: The classic, rock solid espresso grinder without doser, no advantage
Teemu Pihlatie (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: A competitively priced doserless grinder - and among the best of its kind
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.
Sharon Smith (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: A great grinder at a great price.
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.
Sandy Andina (quality: 8.6)
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 .
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.
Rob Novak (quality: 8.4)
Bottom Line: A real workhorse that should serve its owner for years.
Rick Waits (quality: 8.6)
Bottom Line: "Rocky" is a good name for it. It well describes this tough, durable grinder.
Paul Wood (quality: 6.9)
Bottom Line: Gets the Job Done
Nick Gallant (quality: 5.3)
Bottom Line: Great results, relatively good looking, could use a better manual.
Michael Smith (quality: 9.5)
Bottom Line: On 3-month follow-up, I'm still extremely pleased with this grinder.
Michael Sacco (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Rock Solid! Consistent Grind. A Classic.
