I thought I should probably put this into its own thread.

How many people on this forum have done the mod to remove the anti-static/anti-clumping grid on their Mazzer Mini Electronic Type A/B?

What have your experiences been?

I live in a fairly dry climate, so static electricity is a serious problem, especially in the wintertime, so I can see the need for the grid.
Other people say that the grind retention isn't worth it.

I'd like to hear some opinions on this. Thanks!

I feel a bigger issue with my Mini B is the horrid distribution in the portafilter.  WDT works but come on.  Super Jolly burrs are on order so perhaps that will help.

Easy enough with the Mini-E to purge the chute so I don't feel it's worth removing the grid.  Even on the Wet Coast, I still get occasional static issues.

In a moment of desperation I've used the overflow grinds from the tray of my Preciso - wasn't half bad. lol
