Topic: Nemox Lux users/owners on list (4 msgs / 78 lines)
1) From: Dennis Reeder
Jeez, I really didn't want to put "grinder question" in the subject.   
But, this is, never-the-less a grinder question.
I have narrowed my grinder choices down to three....well probably  
really two.
Nemox Lux, Gaggia MDF and possibly (but probably not) a Maestro+.
I have a Gaggia Espresso.  Also grind for drip.....much more  
frequently than for espresso but that could change.
So do we have any list members using either the Nemox (my first  
choice) or the Gaggia?  Anyone with real first hand experience?
Hey if you wanna weigh in and convince me to purchase the Maestro+ I  
will listen.
TIA
Denny

I've had the Gaggia for about 1 1/2 years, but have never used/seen the 
Lux in action, so I don't have any good first-hand comparisons.  That 
said, I use the MDF for about 80/20 drip&vac/espresso.  The grind is 
quite even at all grind ranges, roast levels, & beans, no complaints 
about that.  There are a couple of build quality issues (i.e. lousy 
doser lever return spring), but the stuff that counts (burrs, burr 
carrier, motor) appear as if they will last a long time.
Not that it necessarily matters if you're really considering the Lux.  
Guess it depends on whether you want the doser.  I did, so I got the 
MDF... otherwise, I probably would have gotten a Lux-burrset grinder.

I've used a Gaggia MDF for 15 years and it is a great grinder where grind quality is concerned (it is pretty much the same as a Rocky as far as grind quality). The doser is not the greatest design but one quickly adjusts. I haven't used the Nemox; so, I can't compare. But the MDF is a great grinder (at least the model made 15 years ago is).
Best,
