Seattle Coffee Gear Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Diane M: I previously used a cookie sheet to catch the coffee grind spills as I was grinding, to prevent then from going all over my kitchen counter.. It was too big, and this tray was the perfect size. It slips in and out from under my grinder easily, so it is quick and easy to clean. I highly recommend it. Mar 16, 2012
A shopper asked: Do you place the tray UNDER the grinder base so that each time you LIFT up the grinder to clean the tray? OR, do you place the tray so that the edge is up against the grinder's base, under the grinder to catch the grounds? Dec 7, 2013

Clay C: I'm going to sound like a jerk but... you use it any way you want. It's a 13"x10" piece of sheet metal. It does have one side unbeveled so it will work either way. I use it as a tray and keep my grinder on it so that I can clean up easier and so I can move the grinder and mat to and from the work area in my smallish kitchen.

IT works best for me as a rest for my grinder as the wheels in my grinder are slightly smaller than pro size and pick up a little static clinginess. Cleaning the tray once a week is sufficient for me.

The tamping mat is nice and thick and works well.

But if you wanted to use it as a receiver in front of your grinder and you had the room for that, it would work as long as your grinder was configured that way.

Jose A: I've placed this tray under my Rocky Rancilio. It does help tremendously because it's hard to avoid making a mess when grinding coffee each time I pull shots. The tray of my Rocky grinder is narrow, so any excess coffee grounds get caught by this tray. It's a very well made tray and the rubber that comes with it is the perfect size for a tamping station. I hope this helps on whether or not to purchase this tray with mat. Good luck! Dec 7, 2013

Ram M: This is quite a large tray. I use it on a commercial grinder and it fits entirely under the grinder to catch any stray grinds. The slightly raised edges on the tray keep the grinds from spilling all over your counter.

You will need to lift up the grinder to clean the tray, but I think this is easier than wiping down the counter.

Peter R: place the tray under the front grinder feet. the grinder feet are tall enough that a sponge can get under the grinder to clean. I do not lift up the grinder. we love the tray. great addition to our super jollies. strongly recommended Dec 7, 2013

Simon H: I put the grinder on top of the tray. Now that I have bought a VST portafilter basket I have been grinding into an old yogurt pot placed on a digital scale. Much less messy and more consistent shots, but it is kind of awkward to turn the grinder on and off (Rocky Grinder) without disturbing the digital scale. Actually thinking about gettingn rid of the tray as the mess is much reduced when grinding into yogurt pot rather than directly into portafilter Dec 9, 2013

Hiram C: The way I have my setup is as follows the tray holds the grinder and I use the rubber mat for the porta. Filter/tamper. However I got the coffee gotcha which keeps 99% of the coffee inside the porta filter. I don't waste coffee like I used to. It's little pricey jig but the coffee beans are not cheap either and I don't waste coffee at all. Dec 8, 2013

Jason B: Hi. You place the grinder on top of the tray so it will catch those extra grinds that typically make a mess on the counter. With this try, it's much easier to clean and see where the coffee grounds go. I place my grinder in the middle of the tray to try and catch as much as possible after grinding. Hope this helps.

Julie N: Thank you, everyone. Lifting the whole grinder to clean the tray doesn't appear to be bothersome. No one mentions more/less noise or vibrations from placing grinder on top of a metal tray, either. Using the tray however one sees fit (per Clay C) is the real tip. Just good to know that you all find it worth using. Dec 8, 2013

John F: You place the grinder on the tray. It's not that hard to clean around. I vacuum grounds when they get out on the tray, which isn't as bad as it seems. Dec 8, 2013

A must have if your grinding with a portafilter

This tray is good if your doing any general grinding, as coffee always makes a mess. The best part about using this tray is when you are grinding directly into your portafilter, as it this can get messy. The tamping mat is removable and works great. It is easy to sweep tray grinds to front and into trash or rag.

Great addition to any home espresso bar. Perfect size for a grinder on one side and vacuum sealed beans on the other. the tamping mat is a great place to keep your tamper when not in use, and obviously to tamp on. looks great next to my Rancilio Silvia. Keeps grinds contained when direct grinding into a portafilter. It's a no brainer purchase, not sure why I waited so long to get it.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Easy To Clean

Cons:

Don't buy the grinder w/o the tray because it makes the clean up very easy and tamping pad is neat!

I removed the base of my Rancilio Rocky and placed the grinder on this tray. It matches the stainless steel on the Rancilio. No padding on bottom of the tray so it can scratch the counter top. Overall a nice compliment to any espresso grinder setup and reasonable price.

Pros:
Easy To Clean

This stainless steel grinder tray is perfect for most home grinders. I use it under a Rocky and it fits just right. It catches any loose/fallen coffee grounds and it's super easy to just tilt up the grinder a little, pull out the tray, and sweep it off into the garbage can to clean. The tray also comes with a rectangular tamping mat that sits at the front of the tray. The tamping mat looks nice and comes in handy because you can tamp right in front of your grinder. You have to have something under your grinder if you like a clean kitchen and this tray + tamp mat is perfect.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Easy To Clean

Cons:
