No Longevity

 

I bought this grinder to replace a much used blade grinder. It was only $15 and $5 more than getting the same one again. That and the ability to adjust the grind size I couldn't resist. Before too long however;Just how many things can I list for ...

Easy to put the beans in and to measure amount.

Very messy which eventualy leads to its demise.

Just say "No" to this attempt at a burr grinder

 

I'm unwilling to pay $100 or more for a burr grinder, because I don't think it will improve my coffee drinking experience or life that much. I paid $100 or so (on sale) for my Starbucks Barrista Aroma Grande coffee maker, so I'm not cheap about my ...

Inexpensive burr grinder. It does actually grind the beans.

Unbelievable mess, mostly from static electricity. Actually soots coffee dust around the kitchen.

Makes dramatically better coffee than comparably priced blade grinders ; A burr grinder for about $30

Sounds like a 747 turbine ; Even the finest setting is pretty course

Cheap and works well.

Messy and fragile.

I am the VP of R&D for a consumer product company. I develop products for a living. This product is a great concept that was just absolutely botched in the design. The idea of having a hopper full of beans with the ability to grind enough for a pot ...

Great concept

Terrible design, very messy, impractical for daily use, difficult to clean
