Bottom Line: Though I've been slow to get the message, a good grinder like the Breville makes a world of difference in your coffee enjoyment.
Ian King (quality: 8.0) 04.03.2008 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: It's not an art work, it's a fine appliance that gets the job done nicely.
Marc Tischler (quality: 7.8) 08.29.2007 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Very affordable burr grinder with nice aesthetics, small footprint, and most importantly good grind. Great first grinder if you are on a limited budget.
Drew Fleck (quality: 7.5) 08.15.2007 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: All-in-all I am very satisfied with this purchase.  Bottom line- it is so affordable and works so well that I'll be able to put money aside for an even nicer grinder when it's time to upgrade, and I'll be able to drink excellent espresso in the meantime.

Bottom Line: After a simple no-brainer modification, this grinder is great for espresso!!
Andrew B (quality: 7.3) 10.19.2008 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Buy it if you're looking for a reasonably priced burr grinder for everything BUT espresso
Eric Mattocks (quality: 7.3) 03.04.2009 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Best grinder under $300. !

Bottom Line: good grinder after all .
Joel Schulz (quality: 7.0) 12.02.2009 Rating: 2.8
Bottom Line: For espresso it is useless and Breville admits it. Too bad the product was not as good as Breville's customer service. They offered a refund if my retailer did not. MORE THAN I CAN SAY FOR BODUM.
Ash Furrow (quality: 7.0) 08.30.2010 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: *Not* recommended for espresso. Good starter grinder after I modified it, but wore out quickly. Get a better starter grinder if you can at all afford it.
Eric Pellenbarg (quality: 7.0) 01.17.2009 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: If your budget isn't ready for a $300+ grinder, this is a very good choice.
Davin Gegolick (quality: 7.0) 06.07.2012 Rating: 7.2

Lewis Jordan (quality: 7.0) 09.03.2008 Rating: 7.6

Meta Phoric (quality: 7.0) 09.23.2007 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: A Conical Burr Grinder for the rest of us...
Louie Woodhams (quality: 7.0) 03.15.2008 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Nice grinder, but not enough range for espresso.
Dunno Lol (quality: 6.8) 10.26.2007 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: If you are looking for good espresso, step away from this grinder.
Johann Ramirez (quality: 6.7) 10.09.2008 Rating: 8.8
