To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Does the job but for the money it would have been nice to have a tamper on the other side. It isn’t that precise so you get a lot of grounds up along the sides. You need to clean it often for that reason. The adjustment for depth is precise and holds well. Remains stain and rust free. I would recommend this product if there is nothing better on offer.
Good weight, and built quality. Easy to adjust heigt. Wish the flat surface was not as large. If you look at more expensive distribution tools, there is not as much flat area of blades, just large "ramps" to help distribute coffee. Will buy a proper tool later on, but for now I feel it helps. I've put larger lumps on a corner and used tool, it will level out but not 100% so I will level out after grinding with chopstick and then use this tool before tamping.
Spent several months trying various manual tamping techniques. Combined with a few taps on the counter to settle the grounds while dispensing from the grinder, this makes it easy to improve consistency with a quick tamp afterwards. Helpful in getting a quick espresso shot ready before the next zoom meeting,
Excellent leveller and distributer. Works excellent, easy to use and configure the desired highet. The only downside that gives it 4 stars and not 5 is tha fact its too slim and ismoving inside the 54mm basket for the bes870xl machine that it was advertised to fit.
