Features & Functionality of the Mazzer Mini Electronic Doserless Grinder - Type A
Generous Capacity: This heavy-duty bean hopper can hold up to 1.3 pounds of freshly roasted beans.
No Bean Left Behind: The generous bean hopper also features a nifty little gate that can be closed so no beans are lost when transporting the hopper.
Cool Beans: The 64mm flat burrs operate at a low RPM (rotations per minute), so no beans are re-roasted during the grinding process.
Dosing Options: Select anywhere from 4 to 16 grams of coffee per pull with the adjustable doser and digital display.
Control Your Beans! - Maximum grind control is at your fingertips with the stepless grind system.
Sizable Hopper - With a hopper that holds 1.3 pounds of beans, you’ll never be without a bean to grind.
Digital Display - The easy to use digital display makes for simple dose selection and shot counting.
Sans Reference Marks - Because the very nature of stepless grind control is to be infinite, there are no reference marks or points to help when recalling a previous grind setting.

I have a breville barista express and I'm waiting on a la marzocco linea mini to replace it. The barista express has a built in grinder and I upgraded to this while I'm waiting on the linea mini. I was really curious to see the difference between the built in grinder on the breville and a fancy mazzer, because on the surface they both gind coffee pretty fine. The mazzer is significantly more consistent, meaning when you fill the portafilter it's not lumpy and doesn't need to be shaken down several times. The mazzer also is so precise that a fraction of an adjustment, like a millimeter, changes the shot you can pour. The breville is actually pouring some incredible shots that I was only able to achieve once in a blue moon before. This all makes sense given the grinder costs more than the breville, but if you are looking to upgrade your machine, I would start by getting a new grinder. In terms of open box quality, I couldn't tell the difference. The shot counter was at 28. They probably vary significantly in this respect but I felt great about buying open box and would certainly do it again. (Posted on 4/23/2016)

PROS: Great stepless grind. Built to last (very important to me). Timed dosing keeps me from overfilling and making a mess once dialed in.
CONS: tends to "splatter" as the hopper is near empty. Im assuming due to beans bouncing around more which creates more static... Also I was under the impression that open box items were cleaned before resale. While all in working order, the burr housing needed a good cleaning as it looked like it had been used for a few months and then simply maied to me...maybe thats just how open box is.
