Includes the latest, upgraded display board and sleep mode:

This latest model (886) includes the addition of a memory, so that the programmable settings will be retained even when the grinder is unplugged.  Also added is a sleep mode so the grinder will shut down, and the blue 'on' light will go out, when the grinder  is not in use.

Big on Performance:

The Vario has the performance of a large grinder without the need for all the counter space. Measuring only 5 in. wide and 7 in. deep it will fit on almost any counter. At only 14.5' in. tall, it fits under overhead cupboards. All functions are controlled from the front, so walls or equipment directly beside it is not a problem.
