Expanded Ratings Descriptions
|R1||Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.|
|R2||Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.|
|FR||Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.|
|D||Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.|
|DIS||These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.|
|U||Has had light use.|
|SDB||Has moderate damage or blemish on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing, or paint blemish.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

By Jeanne E. in CA on 10/30/2017 - Verified BuyerMy older dogs must have their dry food ground up. After destroying many choppers, Cuisinarts, etc., I sent Pleasant Hill the dog food and they ground up a sample. They tested the food and called me with the perfect grinder. Thank you Pleasant Hill Grain!2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Leonard P. in WA on 6/14/2019 - Verified BuyerI am almost reluctant to provide a review on a product that I just received. Anyhow the grinder arrived and it was very well packaged. So, of course, I had to try it right away. It was obvious that this grinder is very well constructed and is ideal for home use. My first grind was excellent and I am very satisfied so far with the quality. Additionally, the ordering process and the pre-purchase inquiry was very helpful. The packaged arrived on time as predicted and I have no complaints at all.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
