Positive Product Points

Range of grind settings. Neat designed machine.  Cheap price.

Negative Product Points

Only 9 grind settings, not enough fine control on grind to vary according to ambient temperature and humidity.

Detailed Commentary

All plastic housing means structural strength is low.  Not easy to disassemble for through cleaning.  The machine is very noisy when in operation.  Machine is only available in white plastic, no other choice available.  The grinding wheels only have an effective life of about 5-7 years. (I drink at least 2-4 cups per day) and have had the machine for 5 years. Price is only AUD$150 now.  Was AUD$118 in 1996.
