It uses a blade of all things!  And from Technivorm.  I really don't know if it is a new item from them, however I first saw it today at Williams-Sonoma.  It is only for drip coffee and is supposed to be paired with their drips.  I really don't know what to think of it besides the usual blade is bad thing.

I vaguely recall reading that Technivorm was bought by... somebody. But a quick google search reveals nothing.

But... if someone bought the company to capitalise on the name brand, this would seem a (ill purposed) logical thing for them to do - release third party manufactured products with the Technivorm name.

I'm not saying this is the case, but it just doesn't seem right that they would manufacture, brand and sell a blade grinder.

I remember seeing that probably at least a couple years ago, so it is not a new product.  I thought it was strange as well.

Right, W-S started carrying this around when they dropped Baratza. Reviews on their site go back 4 years or so IIRC.

It has such an odd setup.  They reference the screen under the blade as there to catch grind size that is too big.  And it just stays there until you take off the screen?  Odd.  I looked at it briefly at Williams Sonoma and it appeared that the blade was about 1/8" above the screen so I cannot see it grinding any of the larger particles further after they hit the screen.
