Portafilter holder, a cover that doesn't allow bean particles that fly out and land into the adjustment area.

So I believe Nizhe Zero is actually being manufactured by WPM. They're also making another higher tier grinder under a different brand: http://slingshot.coffee/en/

It seem to have what alot of people here are asking for, namely: flat burrs, hopper, augur. It looks quite a bit larger though. I haven't tried it, and I probably wouldn't get one either seeing that I own an EK already, but just thought I'd mention it in case y'all didn't know.

Note: I have no idea if they're actually the same company, it's just a guess from my end. I live in shanghai and the WPM dealer sells both.

No mention of retention or it being designed for single dosing , that I can see after a quick skim.
Infact looking at some videos this is a pure commercial grinder . It pre grinds then deliver to the PF , little bit like an Akoyzen from memory, with a few more bells and whistles.

In order to keep on topic new thread focused on the Slingshot grinder has been started.

The Slingshot grinder.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

There are 2 things that I would actually ELIMINATE!

- The little red light.
- the retractable cord.

I feel that they are unnecessary.

No need to wait for v2 to get a Portafilter holder... https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3328072

Did you make this? If so, nice job! Nice set and video shows it well.
A three cord strand is not easily broken...

I'm quite happy with the V1 so I don't need a V2 but this would be a very nice feature to have.
four minutes to make an espresso? really?
