Pros Relatively inexpensive, relatively quietGreat grind consistency, intuitive interface, relatively clean and quietGood grind consistency, burly componentsQuiet operation, good grind consistency, great for pouroverAbove average grind consistency, clean operation
Cons Poor grind consistency for a burr model, chute hangs onto a lot of grindsNot ideal for French press, expensiveExpensiveCan produce enough static to hang onto grinds, not great at the extreme ends of the grind spectrum (coarse and fine)Slightly pricier than some comparable models
Bottom Line Mostly fails to compete with other budget burr models on the marketOne of the best overall models on the marketGood performance with a build that is more likely to stand up to heavy useGrinds well while emitting only a relatively harmless, low-pitched humGood all around performance without any standout strengths
