Detailed Commentary

Nothing great about this grinder, but for the average Joe up to someone who wants a 'good grind' for a fair price it is a good value. For me it just makes the grade. I wanted a burr grinder that would last a while, that was quick.
It is somewhat wasteful of coffee because of the poor container design. Lots of 'coffee dust' gets everywhere. Container is very thin, so some care is needed in handling. Cleanup results in lots of debris left on countertop, etc.
The 'grade' selector is a bit stiff to adjust.
At some point I would like a grinder with a better design that creates less of a mess, but for now I can not say it does not get the job done, it certainly gives me the grind I want consistently.

Buying Experience

No problem, fast delivery.
