Bottom Line: Good grinder for press or drip, but it falters trying to consistently grind for espresso.  Make sure that you buy from a vendor with a good return policy.
Robert Uy. (quality: 8.9) 11.30.2005 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: I review other criticisms of this unit honestly.  In short this is the best grinder I have found for Turkish, which surely makes it good for pump espresso. Slow rpm makes a large taste difference!
Gino Magnotta (quality: 8.7) 05.14.2008 Rating: 6.2
Bottom Line: Has some very good features to it, and could have been an excellent grinder.  Has fundamental flaws however which lets it down badly.
Donny Raus (quality: 8.6) 02.02.2007 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: There are better grinders that deliver a more uniform/consistent grind at a lower cost. However, if aesthetics, usability, and hopper capacity are priority and your willing to compromise the grind and beverage quality this machine is for you.
Randall Nortman (quality: 8.6) 04.28.2007 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: A heavy, solidly built piece of counter jewelry that does everything you'd want other than grind coffee well.
Troy Bash (quality: 7.8) 10.31.2005 Rating: 9.6
Bottom Line: Don't listen to the negative reviews, this is a great grinder!!!
Jeff Sheltren (quality: 7.8) 09.05.2006 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Very sturdy, glass catcher prevents static in the grounds and is easy to clean; gives a nice, even grind.
Greg Hancock (quality: 7.6) 11.15.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Excellent aesthetics,  almost industrial design,  and does its job well.  Minor problems pale in light of its overall excellence.
Ted O (quality: 7.5) 02.18.2006 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Nice Appearance, Feel and Quality.. but Not Really Designed and Built for Espresso Enthusiasts
John Poros (quality: 7.5) 01.19.2004 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Solidly built, but not geared toward espresso.
Alan Bryant (quality: 7.4) 10.22.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Attractive, well-built machine that will satisfy some, but probably not espresso "power users."
Steve Engelbrecht (quality: 7.4) 11.10.2003 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: This is the most beautiful grinder I 've ever seen, but it does have drawbacks.
Clemens Anhuth (quality: 7.3) 05.21.2006 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: One of the, or maybe the best choice for home use in my opinion - if it performs adequately.
Kent Simmons (quality: 7.3) 05.01.2007 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: A great machine IF you like your coffee French or if you like espresso - but its not capable of both grinds without recallibration.
Byron Ala (quality: 7.3) 11.13.2007 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: If you like to mod products and can get this for cheap, it may be for you, otherwise, buy something better.
Christopher Boffoli (quality: 7.1) 04.27.2004 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Dualit-like industrial design, heavy and durable, most details done right, other major things overlooked. Not bad overall.
Dennis Zarlengo (quality: 7.0) 11.04.2011 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: The quality of operation and build make this grinder a good investment
Chris Stewart (quality: 7.0) 07.13.2013 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Great for medium and coarse grind brewing.
Roman Beyga (quality: 7.0) 08.18.2011 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Great Grinder for the mainstream coffee geek!
Richard Abrams (quality: 7.0) 09.08.2006 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Acceptable value well made machine which contributes to making Italian coffee bar standard home espresso.
