It's true - I can't live without it

published

I have had mine for about 20 years and love it. It has always performed well but just now is not grinding. I emptied and can't see any beans stuck under the burrs. I thought maybe it was clogged but this shouldn't stop the grinding. Can anyone suggest what I can do. There is a screw to open part but I can't budge it --- help, please!! Marilyn

Purchased in September 1999.

Unbeatable

I have had my Gaggia MM Burr grinder for about 20 years and have used it every day. I had to adjust the grind to make it finer by screwing the adjustment past it's stop, but this had no impact on the machine. My Atomic stove-top requires a fine grind in order to froth sufficiently. It has never (!!!) failed me. The only time it clogged was when I overfilled the bowl with ground coffee (ie. never). I would definitely buy it again and highly recommend it to anyone else. It has worked out at about 11c per coffee.... Can't complain about that!

I've had this grinder for about five years - it's a proper burr grinder, which can be adjusted to get the grind just right. I'm particularly happy with the quality of the grinds it produces. However, if you fill the hopper the outlet gets clogged and needs to be unclogged to finish the grind. You have to keep the outlet clean to prevent a blockage from building up. It's also difficult to keep the rest of the unit clean. I damaged the bin of my grinder so grinds escape from it when I'm grinding only adding to the mess (but that's my fault).

Great grinding but messy.
Adjustment allows for perfect grinding
Gets clogged, difficult to keep clean

How do you adjust the grind on this model? I have one and don't know where the adjustment is located. Thanks!

You twist the plastic, cylindrical opening into which you pour beans. If you look closely you'll see that grind settings are embossed in the plastic body where the cylinder enters the grinder.

HTH!

I have an Atomic and in order that the coffee was ground finely enough for that machine to froth the milk satisfactorily, I had to unscrew the bowl at the top (there is a screw in the centre at the bottom of the bowl) and turn that bowl a little tighter and replace the screw. This meant the coffee is ground very fine. If you try it, be sure you do not inhibit the grinding blade or you will burn out the machine. My experience is this has been working for me with no ill effects on the machine the whole time I have owned it. Hope this helps...

Thanks, this was very helpful!
