I had a look at the parts breakdown and it was interesting..Originally Posted by 3E2E3928286E6F6C646B6F5C0 link=1288871951/46#46 date=1290731427
Some of the breville units did not allow both burrs to be changed... ie. the bottom one is part of the housing etc.
This unit has both burrs as parts and the drawings show a nut etc. *On closer inspection the burr module appears to be the same as the EM8910 auto...
No electronic boards listed as a replacement but the unit comes with a 12month REPLACEMENT warranty.
Only ONE authorised agent in Qld for the top end Breville Grinders and Machines and he has yet to see one of the smart grinders as yet *;) *Was also interested in the fact that it is focused on the broader Coffee market ie. 50 - 54 and 58 group machines. *Maybe they are going to expand their manual range and compete with the EM6910 ???
His comment was that they (Breville) are usually of a solid build but it is the electronics in the coffee machines that fail (poor soldering and not always quality components / water ingress etc - china). Most of the earler Breville grinders fail over time, with bearing slop and the housing is not a part *::)
So depending on use etc only time will tell. *
PS. I am on the look out one as if it is less messy, I would go for one as a step up from the Sunbeam EM0480.
