This grinder is the best grinder at this price. The reasons are: fits under cabinets, large 60 mm Burrs, (any larger and the retention might be an issue). Solidly built, easy to clean without losing your setting. Doser is a beefy stainless and spins coffee in the center of portafilter. Portafilter holder is strong and easy (holds bottomless portafilter without holding it. Use and settings are easy.(LED lights are set up nice.) Nice blue on/ off light. If you need a bigger hopper (this holds about a pound?) Otto Electro (makes this Grinder) has them.This unit is heavy, which is nice (Big heavy painted Aluminum casting). And it's a great looking unit!
Oh my what a beautiful grinder! Works amazing, easy to use, and a commercialy rated grinder. Portafilter holder works just fine with bottomless ones. Quality is very high. Worth every penny! Also looks great and so easy to use (and clean-up is easy)! I fail to see a clumping problem? (other reviews?) LED screen is easy to program and use.
I love this grinder! So easy to set up and use. I quickly fine tuned the settings to enable my Conti CC-100 to produce the most awesome espresso! In fact, I'm going to modify my morning coffee consumption from 2 cappuccinos to 1 espresso plus 1 cappuccino. Owner of espressooutlet.net was very helpful - giving me pros and cons of grinders. Shipment was fast and grinder was well packaged.
