Bottom Line: An excellent grinder for truly high quality, fine espresso grounds.
Positive Product Points

Finally, an affordable grinder with superb fine grounds for my Gaggia Espresso machine.  Makes uniform, very fine grounds for espresso.  Burr mechanism seems to be really well crafted.

Negative Product Points

The tray for the grounds is small, and here in dry Colorado static causes grounds to cling to the edge of the tray and inside the grinder housing (but static is a problem for each of my other 5 coffee grinders in this climate.)  I have come to accept that a quality, affordable home espresso setup is going to be messy (my fiance refers to the aftermath as "coffeegeddon").

Detailed Commentary

I paid about $60 US for this grinder.  I have 3 other burr grinders in the $30 to $80 price range, and the Zassenhaus produces far higher quality grounds and much finer grounds than any of the other comparably priced grinders I have used. I am finally able to make consistently good shots on my Gaggia Espresso machine.  Prior to acquiring the Zassenhaus, I was unable to do any better than a 10 to 15 second pour on the Gaggia. Yes, it is a labor intensive grinder.  Use it for a few years while you save quarters for a quality, $200.00 automatic.
