Inconsistant grind. The chute clogs every time Grinder clogs with very oily beans Quality of the burr seems suspect
I had this grinder almost 3 years. We used to drink columbian styled coffee and this grinder worked great for that. Now we drink a French Roast and it seemed to be the death of the grinder. I also think that the burrs were part of the problem.
I would clean out the chute every time with a plastic zip tie. It really became a ritual. Also every time I had to refill the beans I would take the entire glass jar off and clean down inside the burr area with a paper towel. This seemed to help with the frequency that the beans would get stuck in the machine.
Every once in a while the machine would just run and run but no grounds would come out. I would shake it and knock it a bit. When this happened that signaled it was time to take the jar off and clean the burr area.
Finally 2 weeks ago that didn't help, I don't know what happend so I tried to take it apart. It seemed that there were metal shavings from the blades down in there, plus the blades didnt' seem that sharp. (This would explain why it didn't grind very consistantly) Turns out I couldn't get it back together, so I threw it in the trash.
If you never use any oily beans, or if you don't care if your beans are inconsistant, then this grinder would work okay. Though, a $10 blade grinder is about as good.
You cannot use this grinder for press pot (french press) coffee, it's too inconsistant.
I would not buy another one that's for sure.
I did keep the measuring cup for use with my Zassenhaus.
Don't recall, I bought it online and it arrived in a timely manner. Paid about $100 for it.
