Specifically designed to be store on the espresso machine's drip tray (under the group head), Grindenstein's unique height reduces clutter on the kitchen bench top and fits easily in the top rack of the dishwasher. Every Grindenstein comes with an information booklet filled with great ideas on how to recycle the collected coffee grinds as a fantastic natural fertilizer for the garden. This and durable rubber sleeve protects the group handle, absorbs the striking force and makes it quiet to use. Grindenstein's patented shock-absorbing design and solid steel core make it truly impossible to break. Dishwasher safe.
