Negative Product Points
Timer doesn't always grind the correct amount of coffee beans. Static cling of plastic grounds hopper makes it hard to get the ground coffee out. Even the coarsest grind level is too fine for my vacuum pot. Inconsistent grind size & quality.
I wasn't even in the market for another grinder. I have been using an ancient KitchenAid A9 grinder but had gotten tired of the grounds and dust flying out of the cup and making a mess on the counter.
Price seemed right, it was early in the AM at Sam's Club, and my impulse control must have been even lower than usual.
The hopper to hold the beans is a nice touch for most people, but for us coffee snobs it's irrelevant because we simply must grind the beans just before brewing, right?
The biggest gripe I have is with the too fine of grind, the inconsistent grind, and the static cling of the grounds hopper.
It is worth it for most people at $30.
As always, a delight. Picked the box up off the skid on the floor of Sam's Club, put it in my oversized basket, went to the checkout line, paid and went home.
