Design inherently lends itself to being disposable

Summary: The first 10 times I used this grinder, it worked like a charm, like so many poorly made products. Upon the motor burning out at grind 11, opening it up revealed cardboard components (yes, even cheaper than plastic) separating electrical wires, and self threading screws (thus, disposable), clearly...
Summary: We have had our Delonghi since 2004 and it has worked great for the whole time - until last Sunday. It was overloaded in order to make a big batch and the motor burned out. Our fault, not the grinder's.
Summary: This is the second grinder I have owned. The first was an old Braun that worked well for years until I lost it during a move. I purchased this grinder because of the seemingly easy to use feature for making coarse, medium, and fine grinds.
Summary: The DeLonghi DCG39 Electric Grinder, 2.36-Ounce Capacity is ***the*** best coffee bean grinder I have ever used (and I have had quite the collection of them)! The settings are easy to use and precise, and it's attractive looking, too.
Summary: I wanted to like this grinder - it just looks so nice on the counter! But unfortunately it doesn't work for the type of brewing we do. We use a coffee press and use French roast beans, which tend to be very oily. I first tested the grinder with regular roast beans and thought it did outstanding!
Summary: This little giant belongs in every coffee lover's home or apartment. Its main function is grinding coffee beans and its so described, but more about this product. It features a set of three lights that light at different intervals during the grinding process and alerts the coffee lover when his...
Summary: I bought this grinder because apparently the one from KitchenAide (I think) was discontinued (you know, the one with the tall metal cup...). Any who, I do like this one a lot for spice grinding (I don't drink coffee). The grounds are a bit on the chunky side even after grinding it for a while.
Summary: Well, the grinder I wanted was a burr grinder, and this isn't one. I thought it was because it can grind to different levels or "coarse-ness", but that is because you just grind longer. I kept it anyway.
