Positive Product Points

It grinds the beans for both drip & espresso good

Negative Product Points

I wish it had an on/off switch instead. The coffee can get static.

Detailed Commentary

It's a good machine that does it's job no more no less. It easily grinds 10 cups for my drip machine without getting hot.
As a newbee to espresso I have to learn to get the grinding just right for my espresso machine , but it grinds fine enough. If I were to buy a grinder today I'd probably buy something else made of metal instead. For it's price its very good.
Sometimes I feel that the machine feels a bit to plastic. All in all I don't think you can go wrong with this machine. BTW it's a Solis 166

Buying Experience

I bought it from Himalaya Coffee in Hötorgshallen in Stockholm Sweden. The owner Mats always gives you a good price on whatever you are buying. A great store I really recommend
