Bottom Line: Temporary machine you will soon want to replace.  Inconsistant grind.  Repetitive blocage.  Get another brand.
Positive Product Points

Decent results for the money.  It's definitely better than a blade.  Also, It's very pretty next to the Saeco Espresso Machine, on the little tray with the convenient drawers.  BEsides the looks, it's main positive aspect is that it grinds coffee.

Negative Product Points

No indication whatsoever on the "expected grind settings" for the different type of coffee.  You're left on your own.  Once you figure out that "3" is about the right setting for Espresso, you find out that with this grind setting, the machine will get "clogged-up" and you will have to manually remove the coffee using Q-tips.   Also, the grind is iInconsitent, given a particular setting.  I would definitely pay the estra dollars to get a grinder that I would want to keep..

Detailed Commentary

I don't have much to add.  The negative comments says it all.  I would definitely stay away from this machine is you don't want to be shopping for a new one soon.  If all you want is to grind coffee and you don't look at grind results (which is unlikely, if you're reading this site), get this grinder...  Then again, only get it if it's very cheap or free.

Given that I have to write a minimum of 500 words and that I don't want to waste your time by reading repetitious comments, I will paste my negatives again.  I appologize for the inconvenience.  No indication whatsoever on the "expected grind settings" for the different type of coffee.  You're left on your own.  Once you figure out that "3" is about the right setting for Espresso, you find out that with this grind setting, the machine will get "clogged-up" and you will have to manually remove the coffee using Q-tips.   Also, the grind is iInconsitent, given a particular setting.  I would definitely pay the estra dollars to get a grinder that I would want to keep..

Buying Experience

Came as a package with the Espresso Machine (Classico) on the Internet.
