Excerpt: Bought this grinder in 2006 for my daughter. She took it to college with her. We use it because it doesn't make a mess. Until a couple of days ago it was running great and then it just stopped. I'm back to buy another one. We cold brew in the Summer so we use it a lot. The grind is perfect.
Excerpt: I bought this years ago in Seattle, to grind my coffee beans - about 2-4x every week. Writing to counter the other bad reviews. It's a handsome coffee grinder, reasonable noise level, light, easy to store. I love the measure lines on the inside.
Excerpt: I really don't know why there are negative reviews. I've had mine for over 6 years and it works perfectly every time. I like grinding my own beans and feel my coffee tastes fresher because of it.
Summary: It would look really nice next to my Cuisinart Coffee Maker if I was going to keep it.
Pros: Appearance, large cup
Cons: Cord storage awkward to unusable. Smoked plastic cover prevents good view of grind. Plastic cover impossible to clean by hand. Cup must be removed to empty contents without spilling. Grind is irregular mix of powder and chunks.
Excerpt: I've never had a problem with this grinder. It looks good with my Cuisinart coffee maker, as it shares the same design profile. It grinds the coffee appropriately for the filter, and I never have a problem with the taste of the brew.
