Subject: Iberital MC2 Quality Problems
 

I've just taken delivery of a MC2 auto and am very disappointment in the build quality.
I initially thought that I'd been sent a reconditioned model!!

  1. The short chute has quite a few deep scratches.

  2. The Iberital logo and plastic portafilter arms and body retaining clip seem to been put on by someone with a blind fold (they have been put on at a strange angle).

  3. The grinder body itself wobbles on the plastic base.

  4. The base does not seem to be flat.

I've heard that MC 2 grinder is the best under $350, but am I just unlucky?
I've got the option of a refund or exchange for another more expensive model.
I don't really want to spend any more, but can someone suggest the best option?
I've not used as yet as may need to go back.
Thanks

Hi there, how did you get on with this problem, did you bring it back?  I have read some good things about this grinder and i was considering investing.  i like you cannot afford to go much further with the price but want a grinder that will last within reason and  grinds well for espresso.  

I did think even from a pic the label looked a bit strange on one!

thanks
