Innovative calibration in latest edition of the Encore grinder - excellent feature, usually comes only in commercial grinders. An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. If necessary, the Encore grinder burrs can be calibrated by the user.
The Encore has low static generation & noise - it uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reducers to slow the spinning of the burrs to low 450 RPM. The new Encore comes with adjustable electronic speed controller from 405 to 495 RPM. This feature is handy in the event that a user condition may require modification of the speed. Slower consistent speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation while ensuring that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs feeding tunnel.

Before, it could worn the gears and burrs requiring extensive repair. Now, the new system will stop the grinder from working. The automatically reset-able thermal cutout will trigger immediately preventing damage to the gear and burrs.
