Positive Product Points

Great grinder

Negative Product Points

Concerned a supposedly new grinder was actually used when I bought it on-line.  Is it really giving me the desired results?

The vendor's purchase confirmation email had this note:  "All of our machines have been tested; there may be residual coffee or water in some machines. Water or coffee residue does not indicate that a product has been used or is defective."

Seriously do vendors test every grinder sold?  Have I been scammed and actually bought a used grinder at new grinder price?  Has anyone ever heard of this before?

Seriously do vendors test every grinder sold?  Have I been scammed and actually bought a used grinder at new grinder price?  Has anyone ever heard of this before?

That said it apparently works well in first uses.  Clean look, fast, fairly quiet.  Dimensions are not too large, an important issue since I have very limited counter space for coffee making machines.

Buying Experience

Very concerned.  Have I been scammed into buying a used, possibly defective grinder.  Has anyone ever heard of an on-line vendor testing (using?) EVERY new grinder before shipping?

"Please note: All of our machines have been tested; there may be residual coffee or water in some machines. Water or coffee residue does not indicate that a product has been used or is defective."  Vendor note on email sale confirmation.

Three Month Followup

Great purchase.  Use it almost daily, never a problem, always a perfect grind.

One Year Followup

Great purchase.  Use it almost daily, never a problem, always a perfect grind.
