Bottom Line: THE ONLY OTHER METAL!!! GRINDER THAT COMESCLOSE TO THIS QUALITY IN THIS PRICE RANGE IS THE LELIT PL53, [MY OPINION]  STEPLESS, ALL METAL, GOOD RESALE, GOOD CONSISTANCY, DOESNT TAKE UP ALOT OF THE COUNTER,ANDIT WILL PROBABLYOUTLAST THE GRANDKIDS
Positive Product Points

BEST VALUE FOR THE MONEY ANYWHERE,   CONSISTANT GRINDS,  ALL METAL, DOENT HAVE THE CHEAP FEEL LIKE THE BASRTAZAS, ETC, AND COST LESS TO IS STRPLESS  ALL FOR UNDER 275$  OR CHEAPER  BRAND NEW,  IVE SEEN MANY OF  THE  PLASTIC TYPE  GRINDERS  THAT  COST $100S MORE  WITH INCONSISTANT GRINDING,  AND ALOT OF THEM ARE NOT  STEPLESS ADJUSTABLE,

Negative Product Points

ONCE IN AWHILE A CLUMP OR 2  [COULDBE THE COOFFEE  BEAN TYPE,

Detailed Commentary

I BOUGHT MY KID A CUSINART EM 1000  ESPRESSO MACHINE,  AS SHE ALWAYS ASKED FOR ESPRESSO AT MY PLACE,IT HAD A 3 YEAR WARRANTY, AND WE KNEW SOMEONE WHO HAD ONE FOR A YEAR WITH NO PROBLEMS,  I HAD A LATTE, AT HIS PLACE ONE DAY,  AND THOUGHT JESUS  NOT BAD AT ALL FOR A $300 CDN. MACHINE,  HE  DID HAVE a  LASPAZAILE GRINDER, HE GOT ON EBAY FOR 133$  IM SURE THAT HELPED, ANYWAY,  AND  it had new burrs to,  my kid being new, i got the capresso infinity for her  with the cusinart espresso machine,   the infinity worked ok  [at the least,  not consistant, but you get what you pay for,   we sold the infinity, to another newbie, tO this hobby, and got her a  ASCASO MINI,  world of differance  over the capresso infinity,   i make shots when i visit her, and theRE  decent,  of  course her and her old man, want to upgrade,  there saving for a  myself now]  OUTSTANDING SHOTS very high quality lever machine, ive compared  the EXPOBAR [OFFICE LEVER]  TO QUICK MILLS  SEEMPREETY EVEN THERE TO ME, AND TO A FRIENDS  ROCKET CELLINI,  PRETTYEVEN TO, BUT TH ROCKET WAS  PRETTY HANDSOME,     ANYWAYS   JUST A SOLID METAL STEPLESS GRINDER FOR A CHEAP  PRICE

Buying Experience
