<chuckle>  Okay.. maybe not..

Just a little morning humor...

I figure Mazzer must come up with something to one-up Racilio's Kryo65's fancy "chamber cooling system" (aka 'a heat sink')...

Big burrs, powerful motor and slow speed... no need for a cooling chamber :D

Id like to see some sort of electronic anti-static feature implemented, like how computer techs have those 9V grounding wrist bands, and placemats. Something like that around the doser or funnel would be handy.

Currently I just wipe down once a week with an antistatic cloth, and that seems to work well.

Grinders are made like that, Mazzer has an antistatic screen they use on the mini, most of us remove it though because it gets in the way of the grounds freely leaving the grind chute. YMMV!

I wonder if a ring around the chute would be a better design, or would that impact the functionality?
