Negative Product Points

None, When buying a manual grinder you must accept the fact that it is manual.

Detailed Commentary

I purchased this grinder to meet a special need.  I own an excellent espresso grinder, but it is a pain to set it to grind for a French Press or Drip coffee maker (unless you want to click a dosing lever 20 times - and then remember to set it back for espresso).  I also own a Capresso drip coffee maker that automatically grinds your coffee.  The problem was that I like to try and roast different coffee's and the grinder built onto the capresso would leave coffee in the shute and it was not easy to clean out.  Well, along comes the Zassenhaus knee mill.  It is fairly inexpensive for the quality of the burrs and workmanship.  It is VERY consistent in its grinding ability, and does not generate any heat to harm your coffee.  I can also change the coffee  in it on  a whim, and not have to worry about cleaning anything out.  It is very quiet to operate, perfect for early mornings when the kids or wife are in bed.  I enjoy using it, and realized it was a MANUAL mill when I purchased it, and understood what that meant. Overall I am very satisfied with this product and would recommend it to anyone who was in the market for a manual mill.  Zassenhaus manufactures some of the best tool grade steel burrs in the world, and there reputation preceeds them.  The are an old world company and do not have any fancy advertisements, or company web-site, but what they do have is a superior product, lovingly manufactured by true craftsman.

Buying Experience

Tom is a great guy to deal with, and I do lots of business with him.
