I was a little nervous going with this grinder as it is relatively new on the market and hasn’t been around long enough to warrant a good reputation, but I must say, so far I am very pleased with it. It is easy to program for time and perfect for single dosing, which I am a huge advocate for (over post-grind weight). Retention is virtually zero which make this even more accurate and you can pause mid-grind to settle it out a little if you want to without having to reset time. To me though, the biggest perk of this grinder is the consistent and equal grind, there is ZERO clumping regardless of the bean I’m putting through, I have literally seen grinders over $1k that clump, this doesn’t AT ALL. The two draw backs to this machine are: construction- it is made of plastic and so whether or not it is built to last is yet to be seen, but the lifespan will be shorted than steel, there’s no way around that. The other draw back is noise, yes it is loud, however for me personally the grind quality is a fair trade off for a little extra noise, so Im not concerned about it, although I know some people are really bothered by this. Also, it is prone to some static cling coming off the chute, but this seems to have gotten better as time goes on… not sure why. The plastic construction is the only reason I don’t give it 5 stars.
