Positive Product Points

looks good, price. the timer is nice.
I love the pretty blue light. but who would'nt?
I find myself getting up late at night to see it. Although this is putting a strain on my marrage,  with the K.A. Proline enroute  this practice will end.

Negative Product Points

uneven grind

Detailed Commentary

got this from a gift card to hold me over till I got what I really want, which I have just ordered.

The grind from this is less than ideal,if you are looking for consistency,especially for push pot, forgettaboutit! also the grind selector does not seem to make enough difference in grind for me . I do not find it course enough for a push pot, unless you are one the rare persons that like a some slugde with their coffee.
The thing I hate most, is everytime I grind I have to use the little brush they give to sweep out all the static created powder that lines the catcher, this may be common on burr grinders, (this is my first), although I have just ordered a K.A. proline grinder,(which is what I really wanted) and is supposed to be somewhat immune to static, we will see. Some reviewers say the krups jams a lot, I have not had that problem, YET.

If you are exclusively drip this baby MIGHT be the ticket for you. But if you like to prepare your coffee from a varity of brewing methods, I believe you will be most unsatisfied. Except for that blue light!

Buying Experience

dillards, what can you say.
