Excerpt: This coffee grinder is extremely difficult to use. The trigger atop the grinder requires a lot of pressure to activate. (I'm 6'1 and exercise frequently). It also died after just 3 years of intermediate use.
Excerpt: This is the worst product I have every purchased. Oh yes it is SEXY but don't be fooled. I have done better with a coffee grinder from Walmart for 65% less of the costs. the thing doesn't even light up to let you choose fine, medium or coarse beans. Don't do it.
Excerpt: This is not a great grinder. You have to find the sweet spot to get it to start grinding. And to find that spot you have to push really hard.

And it looks nice enough.
Excerpt: A definite step-up from the small, "shaker" type grinders. This unit is well designed, well made, large capacity (14 spoons of beans) which does a fine job. Indicator lights for "fine", "medium" and "coarse" - very helpful. The only negative: requires extra effort to start - pushing down on cover - but manageable for most users.
Excerpt: I really like it, for a few reasons. 1) it provides consistent grinds of varying textures, from chunky to superfine.

I have found that this sort of `grinder' produces mixed results with some coffee being reduced to a powder with larger chunks of coffee been being left behind.
