Not large?

Negative Product Points

Makes chunks and power out of coffee beans all at the same time; no matter what the coarseness setting is.

Detailed Commentary

I bought this grinder for drip and press pot only.  I figured that it could handle that.  WRONG.  No matter what the coarseness setting is set to, it produces chunks mixed with powder.  This is piece of Chinese plastic that turns your coffee beans into an unusable mess.  It went back the next day.  Don't even consider it.

Buying Experience

The only tolerable thing about it.
