Bottom Line: Perfect as a second grinder for occasional use.
Positive Product Points

Very easy to use, both with and without a hopper,making it an ideal "cupping" grinder.  Noise is moderate (quieter than some, louder than others).  Easily adjustable.

Negative Product Points

Tends to be a bit messy -- too messy, IMHO, for frequent usage.  build quality could be better.  Moderate clumping at times (other times, none).

Detailed Commentary

I wanted to get a second grinder to use with my espresso machine at home for the occasional request (sometimes even my own) for decaf.  Also, I wanted a grinder that could double as a "cupping" grinder from time to time.  Everything seemed either too cheap -- the inexpensive grinders wouldn't work -- or too expensive.  Then, this came along and I jumped on it!

The stepless mechanism is easy to adjust via a knob mounted on the front.  The spout, as well as the grinder itself, is quite easy to clean.  The tinted hopper is easily washable to prevent oil build-up from too oily beans.  As is the case with many doserless grinders, the coffee can have a tendency to get everywhere, and while no one ever said making espresso was the neatest and cleanest endeavor on the planet, having a doserless grinder as my main grinder would -- short of a Versalab -- drive me nuts.  This was confirmed when I moved my QM to my office temporarily for use as a primary grinder -- way too messy for office use!

Still, within its limitations (second grinder, occasional use), I find it excellent.

Buying Experience

From Chris' Coffee Service -- what can I say?  Excellent experience, as always, dealing with Chris.
