This grinder has so much going for it! I was considering grinders in price points low and high and this grinder's aesthetics had me constantly coming back to it! A very clean, simple, geometric appearance without any unsightly controls. The timing dial and manual/timed toggle switch are hidden away on the right side where they're still easily accessible, and I think they allow for quicker adjustment than the digital control panel on the Specialita.
The dense metal casing offers durability and acoustic insulation; the Silenzio and others in this line by Eureka are perhaps the quietest grinders you'll find on the market which means making your morning cup of joe won't wake up the family.
The grinder handles single doses well, and the hopper for me is the perfect size for a week's worth of beans. If it lasts you longer than that maybe you're not drinking enough coffee...
Though the process of finding a grinder, the Cliff & Pebble team was helpful and responsive to all of my questions.
Pros: beautiful design, quiet grinding, good burr size, stepless grind size adjustment, timed grinding, convenient hopper, manual switches offer easy control, metal case offers stability.
Cons: push button takes practice getting used to, portafilter holder is a little difficult to install (but means it won't come out as easily), angle of the chute sometimes makes grinding messy, cleaning up loose grinds around the grinder is difficult.
