Bought this for my mom for Christmas last year. She loves it. Never any problems. She loves the the function especially allows her to set the amount of beans to grind per cups of coffee, as well as the coarseness selector.
Value-priced burr-grinder for french press grounds. Surprised to see an electric burr-grinder at this price point, as most on [other retailer] were twice the price.
The grind-size and cup-size adjustments are convenient so manual measurement isn't necessary.
I don't use it to grind up coffee, just herbs and spices, and it does a fantastic job. The quality is definitely what you pay for, in that it does feel a little cheap, but the fact that it does such a great job grinding, more than makes up for it.
Now, if I was going to grind coffee beans, I might go for a more solid machine in a higher price range, but for grinding your herbs and spices, it's definitely a great buy.
Love this grinder. It's big enough to grind all the beans for a full pot of coffee, easy to clean (& doesn't get stained by the beans), quiet, and fast. Grinding your own beans makes the coffee taste so much more delicious. You can also use this grinder for spices/herbs, although I have not tried this yet.
