How do the Ceados compare ?

Recommended Posts

1. You must report it to your retailer, so they can feedback to the manufacturer, otherwise these things don't always get caught and it may be someone at the factory needs a bit of extra training.

 

2. A stubby screwdriver is not absolutely the right tool for this and you will not get enough torque correctly applied when using one. Now I agree that they shouldn't be in very tight, but even if they were, with the correct screwdrive, you would have found it an awful lot easier.

 

 

Look at 7m 30 seconds onwards and you will see their screwdriver on the counter, mine is slightly longer, the handle rubberised and slightly wider. This is the type of screwdriver with the length to allow you to get properly onto the screw and correctly apply torque. A stubby screwdriver is for use when space is limited

 

 

I don't understand why you have no retailer to report to....or was it a used grinder? If it was used, perhaps the person before you overtightened it. It's very easy to over tighten in Al alloy and it does tend to grab more when you're trying to remove it.

 

He bought it used of ebay.

The use of a drill was worrying indeed, but I had a correct size stubby screwdriver and could not muster the strength to do it without potentially injuring myself.

 

I am ultimately puzzled at the tightness - it was absurd!

(I also have no retailer to report to.)

anton78 also owns a Ceado e37s if you still need convincing how good they are? Perhaps drop him a PM?

I know where it came from originally so will drop the supplier an email as I have an account with them.

 

Also I settled on the stubby because I felt I could apply the most amount of tension.

It may well have been to do with the previous owner, it might have been down to Ceado - whatever the case I found the same to be true of the Allen head screws when I removed the chute, very tight indeed.

 

Nonetheless I wouldn't want people out there to be potentially making a mess of their equipment, I can only speak from what I've experienced.

Cheers - I don't doubt their 'goodness' just trying to understand pros and cons vs the mythos which I actually have ZERO gripes with. Oh, except for its immense size.

Not sure if this is the best place to ask but how would the 37s compare to hg1?

Not sure anyone has had either side by side

I've just been exchanging a few mails with Jens, sounds like there will be a bunch of different glass hopper options in future, made to order, not just what's listed on the site.

 

I'm looking forward to a 300g scalloped one in grey when the time comes... just means living with the Ceado monster hopper for what could be a few months. She'll love that! :D

€250 - bargain.

Shhhhhhhhh.

 

I'm taking it more from the point of view that it's still weighing in well under what I had originally expected to spend on a grinder, and trying to forget about the rest.

Hilarious.

 

(But I think if we ran a 'hot air poll' on here you'd win hands down.)

They are hand blown and even with a glass hopper purchased at 250 euro it will still be less than an e37 from here!

Sorry I never got back to you, unfortunately these will come with the huge hopper, however a small Mazzer hopper

Can be got for around £20. The glass will come online later this year for these and I must say they are beautiful, Jenns will

Sort us out a special price nearer the time for those that were in the group buy

No worries at all. I'm in the vicinity of Bella Barista pretty frequently in my travels so may pick one up, but for the sake of a few months I'll probably just stick with mega-hopper, maybe even get a little creative with it if it proves to be even larger than I'm visualising it to be.

Is BB the best place to pick up a mini hopper and lid?

It's the cheapest I've found by a fair bit, especially if you can collect.

I bought one from Alchemy a while ago. I think that it was £15 delivered, and came with the lid which the BB ones didn't.

 

You might have to email Paul as I don't think that they were on the website to buy direct.

This is what a Ceado e37 with a standard sized hopper looks like in relation to a Brewtus IV. Much better WAF, I'm sure you'll agree?

Definitely. But then I'm growing fond of the idea of unboxing and using the stock hopper, and forgetting to mention the fact that I'll be replacing it with something smaller, shinier and glass at some point. Keeps her on her toes.

 

Maybe I'll buy her the glass hopper for our anniversary :D
