In overall it provides a good quality of coffee grind, however there are a few annoying and obvious design flaws that should be fixed by Rancilio engineers a long time ago.

There are mainly two most severe issues, I think, of the same magnitude.

The first is that after each grind there is quite a lot of ground coffee left in the output channel that is stuck, and exposed to stalling. So next time either you need to drop a scoop of coffee until a new will come out or you just use staled coffee. There is the third way, you can try to shake it off which is not quite a handy task.

The second thing is the location of the push button, which is far from ergonomic. To reach it you need to put your hand under the usually hot portafilter and burn your hand. Also keeping it pressed until the portafilter basket is full may be found inconvenient by some people.

There is also a few other things to be fixed if Rancilio wants to sell their product at this price tag, like sharp edges of metal casing or the width of the output perspex pipe which is much wider than the internal output channel causing that there is a bit of ground coffee stuck forever. Or the black plastic burr cover that has screw holes not blinded thus making coffee beans fall into it, also forever or until you turn it upside down.

I am using it for roughly a month so I cannot say much more on the robustness of the machine, but judging from its weight it should be pretty solid.

This is a very good grinder. Very consistant grind. Compact and sits underneath wall units on your kitchen top. Wife-friendly in terms of size. Some grinders are massive. Very easy to use - just hold your filter holder under the spout and press the button to fill. Infinite adjustment possible to get the right fineness. Note that Amazon is showing a picture of the old machine. The latest 2015 model does not have a stainless base, its a black plastic removable drip tray now. The wire holder can be removed, which I needed to as it wouldn't accomodate my Gaggia filter holder. Note that I prefer this doserless grinder to the dosing version as you get fresh coffee each grind. The dosing grinder holds several portions, so you could end up with a few day old coffee with that one. Note that these are not manufactured with a UK plug, so wherever you buy it from you will need a Euro adapter, or chop off the plug and replace it (once out of warranty). The wiring is permanent, i.e. there's no kettle style socket. I am using Illy beans on setting number 12 which suits my espresso machine well. Some reviews complain about the chute, switches and build quality - I don't have any issues with any of these areas at all.

Grind-wise this is a level above the entry-level grinders (about £140 or so) but as another review states, it's not wonderful ergonomically. The finger guard (a plastic plate in the coffee hopper) has screw holes that fill up with coffee beans but you can remove the guard and just remember not to stick your fingers into a running grinder instead! The push button is at the bottom of the unit under the portafilter holder instead of being a microswitch activated by the portafilter as it is on many others. It's also in a location where it can get wet if your portafilter is wet so a pretty poor place to put it.

It's popular amongst the coffee geek community so there are lots of instructions on how to get the best from it because even at this price point, things aren't perfect, the grinder calibration isn't terribly good and the burrs can be non-parallel which might sound pretty damning but the problems with cheaper grinders are the same but worse.

Mine has now packed up but this is because I've been adjusting the grind without running the grinder which causes beans to block the burrs so it's time to give it a clean. It's been running for a couple of years without problems and I'm expecting it to go on running for many years more unlike my previous cheaper two (both over £100 in price so I'm quids in already).

I'd recommend it if you're looking to get seriously into coffee, there's not much equipment out there that can't be improved a bit if you're prepared to tinker and a grinder like this is a much better place to start than a cheap unit with fundamental problems that can't be addressed at home.

Delivered promptly at a great price. Grinds very evenly and makes great espresso with my La Pavoni but the design is poor, the on switch is in an awkward place it also tends to block up and jam with oily dark roasted beans. Difficult to clean even the hopper spout without a full strip down. I know that the other coffee grinders capable of grinding to this standard are more expensive but I wish I had spent that little bit extra.

Lovely lovely grind but... Coffee shoot from bean hopper to doser clogs up every grind - need to brush out constantly. Dosers propeller blades too short after dosing the blades leave coffee around doser walls. Beans also get stuck in screw holes in bean hopper. On saying this, is my life richer with this piece of kit - most definitely - ffffresh coffee mmmmm
