Detailed Commentary

Note: The pic on this page is not a Mazzer Major. A Major looks like a Mazzer Jolly or Mini only larger. The Major is a commercial grinder but are used by many coffee geeks in the home. If you are already considering a Mazzer Mini or Super Jolly, and if you can deal with the big (15"tall without hopper) and heavy(42#) issue then consider a Major. Buy one and your done for life. Grinding coffee beans is not an easy task, so most machines are simply underpowered and strain to accomplish the task. The Major grinds quickly and effortlessly . The Major has stepless adjustments for grind size. The adjustment collar is all metal and durable. The burrs are large, 83mm, and outlast many others. The burr carriers are well designed and spring loaded for even grinding. A Major is an investment that will hold it's value for many years while providing superior performance. Few fines in the grind keeps the cup sweeter with less sediment. The large hopper can be replaced with a low profile Mazzer hopper or a ss wide mouth canning funnel works slick too. No cheap plastic on the grinder body to break or create static. Body cleaning is easy due to sleek design with no nooks or crannies. New a Major sells for $1000 and up  but consider buying a used one for between $250.-$500. They are so well built a used one will still last the rest of your life. A new burrs set can be found for $40-80. and are easy to install in less than a half hour. In the home a burr set will last for 10 years or more. The dosers are well built and work well. The dosers are about average when it comes to clean sweeping of the grinds when emptied.

Buying Experience
