Bottom Line: For the price, I have been disappointed in how easily it clogs with every grinding after only 3 months use.
Positive Product Points

Grinds accurate and consistently when it is grinding.  Easy to disassemble for cleaning.  I like the button in front for spot, temporary grinding.

Negative Product Points

This unit clogs almost every time I grind beans.

Detailed Commentary

I was initially impressed with how well and consistent this unit ground beans. During the first couple of months, the unit operated flawless.   However, in the past three months, it clogs every time I grind beans for my drip coffee system.  After every one or two grindings, I disassemble the unit and thoroughly clean it.  However, this does not prevent clogging during the very next grinding.  Am very disappointed with what I thought would have been a high quality unit.  The type of beans used does not seem to indicate whether the unit will clog; it always clogs regardless of the beans used.

Buying Experience

WhoteLottaLove was prompt in shipping my order.  Would not think twice about again ordering from them.
