If you only make drip coffee with paper filters this unit will work for you. Just keep a paper plate under it for the mess.

The fine mantle of grounds emitted onto the countertop after grinding, clogging grounds port, brittle grind recepticle.
I just dropped the grounds recepticle for this unit on the counter...just dropped it. It shattered in 4 pieces. It has been a **barely** serviceable unit since purchase. It creates an apron of fine ground around the unit whenever ran, regardless of how well secured the grounds recepticle may be. It has inconsistant grind size, grounds vary from flour to larger granules regardless of setting. Needs filling every 3 days, which has been OK with us as we keep beans in fridge in snap-top glass jar and it is pretty easy to fill. Espresso grind is variable with more coarse bits than I'd like. On the good side, it is inexpensive and marginally better than blade grinder. You soon get used to the mess.
Purchased at a mall cookware store. That speaks volumes.
