Summary Although the price would make this grinder appear to be over-priced, it is not. This grinder is well worth the amount you will spend to get an excellent quality coffee grinder. This particular grinder is one of the most coveted by home espresso users looking for the best espresso beverage available. This is because of the consistent grind, the outstanding solid construction, overall superb design, the units dependability, and the compact size which makes it very appealing for a home unit. It weighs in at 22 pounds which means it will not travel while grinding, making it very stable.
The manufacturer tests all Mazzer grinders with coffee beans, therefore you will probably find some remnants of grinds. This may cause some purchasers to think they are getting a refurbished or used model, when in fact it is brand new.
The unit is available in several colors, although not sure which color other than black Amazon carries. There is also a silver model, black model, and a red model. The doser chamber features clear windows which remain virtually free from marring, scratching, and discoloration over time.
When grinding the unit is not noise free, but it is what you would call quiet, especially for a grinder. The grind is even and texture is superior. You can adjust the dosage sizer easily per pull just by turning the adjustment knob located inside of the doser.
The only negative to speak of is that the cord is located near the front on the left side of the unit. It will be impossible to hide no matter what you do.
Summary This Mazzer grinder comes straight out of the box from the factory with the perfect set point for espresso. The factory tests each grinder individually and marks the perfect set point for each grinder. Using the grinds from this unit makes much better tasting coffee than using other grinders. This is a heavy duty and very solidly constructed machine that is well worth the price for using in your home kitchen.
