Detailed Commentary

What can I say that has not been written already, this is a great grinder. Every thing you heard is true.

Hopefully this is the last grinder I will buy, it certainly looks built to last a lifetime. I would also like to know how heavy the electric motor is, because it weighs a ton, I bet I can power my kids go kart with that thing

The only complaint I have is mostly the aesthetic portions of the grinder which is the painted black face plate makes it look plasticy, why didnt Rancilio use a brushed stainless look to match the rest of the grinder. The plastic shoot is cheap and fragile as well

After grinding I find a considerable amount of grinds left in the grinder which tends to be a problem for me because I am constantly switching from french press to espresso, plus I do not want stale coffee in my next cup, to solve this problem I drilled a small hole in the lid and put a rubber o-ring from home depot on the bottom of the lid to create an airtight bean hopper so I can just blow the old grinds out before grinding

Buying Experience

Jim at 1st-line was first rate he even replaced my plastic coffee shoot for free even though it was my fault
