Positive Product Points

Cheap ($24 at Costco).  Bigger outlet than other grinders may decrease clogging.

Negative Product Points

Finest grind not fine enough for a powerful pump machine.

Detailed Commentary

We bought this out of desperation after the motor on our cheesy Braun burr grinder burnt out.  For the value, it's a better value than the blade grinders, but it's only appropriate if you're making drip, french press, etc.  It doesn't really grind fine enough for our Moka-pot style stovetop.  My mind boggles at the thought of what would happen if I tried to run this grind through a Silvia.

Pros:  cheap, probably easy to clean
Cons: grind not fine enought

It's a good value for the money, though--definitely worth the extra few bucks over a blade grinder.  Just make sure your expectations aren't too high.

Buying Experience

Bought at Costco.  Enough said....
