  • Solid stainless steel body
  • Ingenious stepless grind control
  • Hardened steel 54 mm flat burrs
  • Low speed grinding

One of the most affordable stainless steel grinders that is actually worth buying, Ascaso I-Steel I-1 flat burr espresso grinder, packs a lot of punch into a durable chassis matches most modern kitchens as well as many espresso machines, such as the all-new Ascaso Steel UNO PID Professional. Weighing in at 9 pounds, but less than 5 inches wide, the Ascaso I-Steel I-1 will be a steady, long-lasting complement to your coffee repertoire. The all steel dispensing chute is a nice touch too, as it is one less piece of plastic to worry about. Additionally, while the I-Steel is definitely smaller than other units, Ascaso does not skimp on capacity with a bean hopper that still holds over half a pound!

Simple Pulse Doserless Controls

The Ascaso I-Steel I-1 is a doserless grinder, which means that the grinds are discharged out a chute directly into an espresso portafilter. This is a great feature for less frequent espresso drinker or even for those who just want to have the freshest possible ground espresso every single time. The I-Steel's operation couldn't be easier: Simply place your espresso portafilter beneath the chute so that it depresses the metal switch on the face of the grinder. This activates the Ascaso's motor. When you have filled the filter holder to the desired amount, remove it and the Ascaso I-Steel will immediately shut off.

Commercial Grade Flat Burrs

When it comes to grinding burrs and their mountings, many grinders won't pass muster, but the Ascaso I-Steel I-1's flat burrs are big and beefy. Measuring 54 mm in diameter, these hardened steel burrs are set in heavy brass mounts that not only give this Ascaso longevity, but also result in a more consistent grind because of the added weight. In addition, the Ascaso's burr set is incredibly easy to clean, making this often overlooked yet important task a breeze rather than a chore. To clean, just remove the coffee bean hopper and cover to expose the grinding chamber, which takes about 30 seconds. You can perform a thorough cleaning to remove built up coffee grounds around the lower burr and then reassemble the grinder - total time is about 2 minutes.

Stepless Grinder Fineness Settings

We really cannot stress enough how much you will love the Ascaso I-Steel's precise Micrometric Regulation System (MRS). It takes a little extra time to dial in to the sweet spot for your espresso machine and achieve that elusive "God Shot," but it is time well spent. Stepless grind adjustment works by turning the knob on the right of the unit which turns a worm gear. If you were to picture this in your mind, try to imagine a screw placed right next to large brass gear. In contrast, many other grinders have between 40 or 50 "clicks" from coarse to fine resulting in frustration as many are forced to choose between a little too fine or a little too coarse. So say goodbye to overcompensating for your old grinder's deficiency by fussing with your dosing amounts or tamper pressure.

One Year Parts and Labor Warranty

The Ascaso I-Steel I-1 Grinder comes standard with a one year parts and labor warranty limited to manufacturer's defect or workmanship and is backed by J.L. Hufford's 30 Day Satisfaction Policy.
