Which handgrinder to choose?

etz-I: Our etz-I is recommended for customers NEW to manual grinding or those wishing to skip tools and techniques like RDT or WDT. It`s the only available handgrinder with Antistatic-Jig compressing the grounds while grinding thus minimizing dispersion. The small compressed amount of remains left may be easily knocked off. 

etz-U: Our retention-free etz-U (without Antistatic-Jig) is recommended for customers familiar with techniques like RDT and WDT. 

Differences Cone Burr

etzi-Cone Burr: buit into etz-I, etz-U, etzMAX Handgrinder before February 15th, 2023 - works well for all brew methods
DC-Cone Burr: built into all models since February 15th, 2023 - works for all brew methods with improved (easier) grinding even at finest setting, more uniformity and higher output when grinding for Turkish (compared to etzi-cone)

Although cones for etz-I and etz-U have the same geometry, they cannot be switched due to different threads.
Pleaste note that etz-I/etzMAX Handgrinder and etz-U/P Coneholders differ from each other and are not compatible.
