Hi, first time poster here, I currently have an old sunbeam EM490 grinder and am looking to upgrade. I've seen a second hand m2m grinder online which is 1-2 years old which has had little use for NZ $300 (about $300 aus) Is that a good price to be paying and any questions I should ask the seller? Any thoughts on other grinders I should be considering?
Also, disclaimer, my machine is a sunbeam cafe series which does an ok job for now but I'm also looking to upgrade that when I have the funds, but ideally I'd be upgrading my grinder to something that would work with a much better machine.
One of the sponsors has the M2M for $425 brand new.. so I'd be cautious when bidding at the last minute as you might not be saving as much as you hoped..
PS: not sure how much posting would be so wouldn't hurt to get the info from the sponsor before bidding..
Might be a dumb question, but how do I find that deal on the site?
Ask all the Sponsors at once via the Quote Form link found at the top and bottom of every page.
Java "Ask what?" phile
Toys! I must have new toys!!!
I've bought stuff off a ex sponsor, I just emailed him and he altered some thing on his site and I was able to buy from NZ, bloody good guy actually.
He's not dead, just not a sponsor anymore. Will still be the 1st and probably only place I'll look when upgrading.
But back to the M2M, they are bullet proof. There is very little grind retention and although mine clumped initially, once it bedded in it was a lot better. For $300 you can't go wrong.
There you go, my prediction was close. It went for $420.
I ended up purchasing the M2M from an aus sponsor and am getting someone to bring it back to NZ for me. It amazed me that I could get one in aus for $450 but pay $600-700 in NZ! Better deal to do that than buy one second hand.
I believe NZ has the same power as us so no electrical concerns. Also there's a lot less to go wrong with a grinder than an espresso machine. I wouldn't be too concerned.

And if it breaks down under warranty what then, send it back to Aus?
