Monday UPS showed up and my new Zassenhaus 169DG Deluxe grinder arrived. Its
a beauty!! I have another older Zass, a 151MA that I got off Ebay a year
ago and it can't hold a candle to this one. The burrs appear to be like new,
but the performance is lousy. It takes 3-4 minutes to grind 55 grams of
beans - the new one will do it in less than 2 minutes. No dust, a very
consistent grind. I also own two Armin Trossers and a German made PeDe
Dienes, The PeDe is the closest to the grinding performance and quality of
the new Zasss. I primarily brew with a Technivorm and an Aeropress. It's a
simple matter to adjust for these methods. I tighten the adjustment nut
till I can just hear the burrs touching for the AP. For the TV, I back them
off slightly till they just quit touching. I agree with SM's review, this
costs more than most of the other grinders, and it is well worth it.
