The most cost-effective grinder for coarse french press grinds.
Positive Product Points
Excellent uniform coarse grind for French Press. No muss, no fuss with coarse grind. Only needs a little shaking out once a month to clean, never clogs. Easily put together . Looks good on the counter in silver. Plenty durable for my use.
Negative Product Points
Too much plastic inside but probably only an issue if you keep taking it apart. Had to pay $10 extra just for the silver painted exterior.
Unless you bang it around the plastic housing is fine and I wouldn't waste the money on the metal one. In 2 months of daily use grinding for a french press there's no wear on the operating parts. We do get a few grounds on the counter even after tapping it to empty the chute so I suspect an expresso grind might be a problem. Noise is OK, loud but less than most other grinders. I've cut our coffee bean consumption and cost by nearly 1/3 as the uniform coarse grind requires fewer beans than a blade grinder for the same strength coffee and leaves less sludge in the cup. All I can speak to is using the Infinity on the coarsest setting for French Press but for that it is superior to any other grinder that we've owned and is by far the least expensive burr grinder that would meet out needs reliably.
