Positive Product Points

Easy to use, funky lines.

Negative Product Points

Static at times.  Have to make sure the grinds cup stays aligned while grinding.

Detailed Commentary

I've used this grinder an average of at least once a day since October 2000.  I had previously had a burr grinder (West Bend?) that was a pain to get all the grinds out of.  So I was very impressed with this one because I just dump the grinds collector cup over the paper filter & knock it agains the coffee maker to get remnants out done!  

The minor flaws are that the grinds collector cup "walks" during grinding, so I have to push it back in a couple times each session.  Static on occasion.  I occasionally clean it by taking it outdoors & removing the top burr & spraying with canned air.

Buying Experience

Bought it at Starbucks.  Walked in, picked the box up & paid for it.  Nothing spectacular one way or the other.  ;-)
