Negative Product Points
Brittle Plastic, that flippin doser!
I bought this after my lil ol MiniMacho gave up the ghost. I was promised a workhorse and I certainly got one.
This is one humdinger of a grinder and in reality a bit big for the home user. However being a sad geek it suits me fine. It delivers a very consistent grind and is easily adjusted with the stepped adjustment. It isn't too loud and the grind is nice and cool when it exits the doser. It looks kinda wierd, I liken it to a Dr Who Cyberman. However if you get past that, it really is a very user friendly machine and is up there with the Macaps and Mazzers by a mile.
The downside is the utter complexity of the doser. To gain full access you have to remove two screws to be able to clean it out effectivley. As with most doser grinders it does throw to the left, but careful dosing prevents this.
It is simple to strip down and clean and all the major parts are accessible.
My machine is 9 years old and shows none of it's age.
Bought from a re-seller in Christchurch and it was smooth and effortless.
