How do I adjust the portafilter holder to the portafilter of my espresso machine?
Please follow the operating instructions, or:
Remove the portafilter module
Turn over the portafilter module and loosen the screw of the bottom portafilter support part with a standard screw driver. Once loose, adjust its height until the portafilter of the espresso machine fits tightly into the portafilter module.
Fasten the screw and remove the filter holder
Place the portafilter module back into the X54 grinder and fasten it securely
The portafilter holder should now fit tightly and allow for “hands free” grinding

How and how often should I clean my grinder?
Your grinder should be cleaned approx. once a week. Cleaning intervals are highly dependent on intensity of use, type of beans and grinding degree
We recommend GRINDZ to clean your grinder – please follow the user manual for specific directions
How do I empty my grinder to switch coffee beans
Pull out the bean hopper slider until the indication marking is visible – “closing” the hopper while leaving it firmly attached. Now operate the grinder normally until all residual beans in the grinder neck have been consumed. You can now pull out the bean hopper slider completely to remove the hopper and switch beans.
What is the maximum recommended daily grinding capacity of the X54?
The X54 is designed for domestic use and not intended for high-volume professional environments such as cafés
Maximum daily grinding capacity is approximately 1.7kg but depends on bean type, grinding degree and the power frequency.
How fast does the motor of the X54 turn in rotations per minute?
The motor turns at approx. 10.000 RPM; the grinding discs turn at approx. 1.000 RPM (all depending on various influences on the grind speed)
Which voltage/frequency is this X54 grinder?
