Bottom Line: For those who love home espresso, this grinder is the real thing at a great price point.
Positive Product Points

Amazingly sensitive grind dial, several full turns just barely changes the grind fineness so you have extremely fine control.  No doser so easy to grind on demand for home use. Grind is quite uniform.

Negative Product Points

Tends to be messy, throw grinds a bit. Oily beans sometimes fail to feed, you need to stir the beans in the hopper to get it feeding again.

Detailed Commentary

My home espresso setup started with a basic Breville 850XL, and I was getting tired of having to grind the whole bag of beans at the local Whole Foods where I buy my coffee. The PL53 has been a perfect addition to my home setup, and the uniformity and taste of the espresso we make at home has taken a big leap. We grind coffee fresh for each pull, and have the grinder set as fine as the Breville can handle (too fine clogs up the weird little filter cup on the Breville).  17 seconds yields a bit over 2 oz of espresso.

Buying Experience

1st Line was great, they answered my questions and replaced a missing part without hassle.
