Lelit PL043MMI Fred Stepless Doserless Espresso Coffee Grinder

The Lelit PL043MMI Fred is a similar espresso coffee grinder as the Lelit PL044MM Fred! Both have the same size conical burrs. Additionally, both have the same grinding adjustment and operation. However, the Lelit PL043MMI Fred is slightly smaller in terms of dimensions and weight, so it is truly compact for your home espresso bar!

Grinding Adjustment
  • Stepless – Infinite number of grind settings which allows you really fine tune your grind. Adjustment dial is on the right side of the grinder. Turn clockwise for a finer grind and counterclockwise for a coarser grind.
Grinding Operation
  • Semi automatic – The power button is on the left side. To start grinding, push your portafilter against the grinding button above the fork. Press and hold for continuous grinding, and release to stop.
Grinding Burrs
  • Conical Grinding Burrs – 38 mm in size. Spins at a low rpm which generates less heat. Heat buildup can negatively affect your coffee grinds by heating the coffee grinders before brewing.
Bean Hopper
  • Low profile – The total height of the grinder with the hopper is approximately 12″.

      Both grinders are similar, except for the casing.

      Burrs should never be cleaned with water unless you desire rust on your burrs. It is best to use our grinder cleaning products to clean the burrs so they do not have to be removed. The bean hopper can be cleaned with a bean hopper cleaner.

      The grinding burrs on an espresso grinder should be replaced once they can not grind fine enough. The length of time or pounds is difficult to determine since beans can also have other contaminants, like wood sticks, cemebent, stones, etc that damage the burrs.
