The Lido 2 is heavier than Lido 3, and we designed it as a home grinder that can travel. It is a full range grinder, but some users may find dialing in the espresso range challenging.
The Lido 3 is designed as a travel grinder that can be used at home. It is a full range grinder, but some users may find dialing in the espresso range challenging.
The Lido E was designed specifically for coffee enthusiasts who intend to use the grinder mostly for espresso or finer grinding levels. It is a full range grinder. Some users may find the fine thread resolution challenging in the coarse range.
I've been using my Lido 3 almost daily for over two years now and it's still working perfectly. The case makes it easy to take with me anywhere, and with the anti-static brush it's easy to keep clean. The anti-static plastic is really useful too (the coffee grounds will still cling to it for a few seconds but that soon dissipates).
the grinder is nice with almost infinite adjustments for filter or espresso coffee. it comes with a carrying bag, brush , screwdriver and moving arm.
Many weeks of consideration and speculation between three or four grinders, and Lido 3 won the "competition". It is exactly as good as I've read in reviews. Fast, reliable, sturdy and easy to grind. It's easy to recommend!
This thing is outstanding. Tons of raving reviews online I can only agree with
Amaaaazing grinder, one star down only because bit of grounded beans get stuck down at the chamber and it's a waste of coffee...more than some other hand grinders
Besides that everything else is fantastic!
