Not bad, but a messy problem with static electricity
on February 23, 2008
Saeco GT-1 Titan Conical Burr Grinder is advertised as having an anti-static device, but the engineers have clearly failed in this regard. Grinding coffee results in static electricity sending ground coffee everywhere. I've had other burr grinders that have had static in very dry periods during the dead of winter. This Saeco, however, suffers from static regardless of the weather. It leaves coffee grounds all over the place once you're done grinding.
Also, the hopper for the grounds is not big enough if you're grinding for a 12 cup coffee maker.
Other than the above, the grinder seems fairly well made, is not unduly noisy, and grinds coffee quickly and uniformly. I wouldn't buy it again, however.
