look for a cheaper burr grinde, nothing special about this one for the price
Positive Product Points
Great grinder for everything but espresso and turkish. grinds come out pretty even, easily accessible to burrs and hopper replacement. 40 steps gives good control of grinds
Negative Product Points
does not grind fine enough for espresso, therefore cannot dial in for espresso either. noisy
if you need a grinder for french press or chemex this would be great, although i feel like its too much for that. the baratza maestro looks ok, a little dorky for me, plastic parts make it not as durable as other grinders made of aluminum. this is also an already outdated model and its predecessor is outdated as well. the grinds do not fully get only into the basket because some are retained in the chute. you have to knock it a little to get most of the grinds out. portafilters are not able to get close enough to fit under the chute, you will get coffee grounds pouring out the sides. fairly easy to clean, cannot compare as i haven't had another burr grinder.
only reason i don't like it is because it is good enough for espresso, the guy that recommended for that was wrong. would not buy again for price or use
