Durable, consistent grinds, easy to operate, fairly quiet.
Negative Product Points
Needs a monthly cleaning. The fineness numbers are off by quite a bit.
I've been using this machine daily for about 2 years now and am overall quite pleased. I usually grind two scoops of beans at a time for espresso. At first, I would grind directly into the portafilter using the pushbutton. But this makes the coffee pack into the chute so frequent cleanings were required and often made a mess on the counter. Now I just use the timer and let the ground beans fall into the catch bin so only occassional cleaning is necessary. It does a great job grinding for espresso as well as the French press.
