Detailed Commentary

I was amazed to see all of the negative reviews of this grinder and I felt compelled to retort.  I have used this grinder several times a day for 2 years with no problems whatsoever.  I love the solid materials and the look of the machine.  Easily holds a pound of coffee so it doesn't need to be refilled often.  I use a bamboo skewer to knock the grinds out of the spout everytime I grind, no problem.   I use it for vac-pot, drip, moka pot with great results although I recently  tried the modification suggested from another review and found that it works well and is reversable. I don't have an espresso machine yet but I am very excited that I don't need to buy another grinder.   I cant say enough about this grinder!

Buying Experience

Bought in store at Home Outfitters in Canada, no problems
