Anyone compared this to a Vario/Forté with steel burrs?

I'm having one shipped to friends in San Diego, then they're shipping it to me in Toronto. I'll let the forum know what happens :)

He had no choice. Niche Coffee does not ship to Canada.

Yes, he said that. It doesn't seem to clog anything, I have checked.

I've had a brief discussion about it with DaveC on another forum. The issue doesn't seem to be about clogging the grinder, but rather about potentially damaging the burrs from rust.

In the 30m video he released, he suggested RDT would result in a "concrete" film of coffee.

Oh I believed you with that, I just know he also offered another reason to not get the burrs wet in the video.
