Wonderful Grinder!!I purchased this grinder approximately 2 years ago, and I've used it at least once per day during that time. I've had no problems or issues. It is solidly constructed, including the removable, rugged stainless steel grinder bowl; and the black / stainless steel finish is attractive. In addition, the grinder bowl and the plastic cap are removable AND dishwasher safe, making for easy cleaning. Itprovides multiple different settings for different coarseness and the amount of beans you are grinding, and since the grinding time is pre-set you can just push the button and move on to doing something else while the coffee grinds. It's very simple to use, and I think that the simple, mechanical (non-digital) controls for number of cups and fineness of grind will stand up well over time (not much chance for wearing out!) I've had none of the "cap-loosening problem" or "stopped working" that others reported. This is a great, reliable grinder, and I give it a perfect 5/5.
Does a great job for grinding coffee. Love the fact that it comes apart so you can clean it in the dishwasher. Haven't had a chance to try it out on spices yet but look forward to doing so. Would strongly recommend to others.
