Detailed Commentary

Well I bought this because it was cheap compared to many of the other quality grinders out there.

It grinds the coffee nicely and it's quiet.  It has so many incremental settings to allow you grind one kind of coffee that may need to be grounded slightly more or less, than another one.

The only problem is that cleaning is a bit of a hassle.  To make things easier for me, I use a can of compressed air that you can get at any computer store.  It removes most of the residue powder, though not the ones caught in the crannies.  

Also if you want to make turkish coffee, expect for it to take a long time!  You would need to use something like spoon or something to force the coffee beans into the burr blade, or else nothing will come out and you'll have metal on metal grinding, which damages the machine.

If turkish coffee is something you want to make on a normal basis, then buy yourself a hand power turkish grinder to get the coffee gound you want.

Buying Experience

Creativecookware.com had a great deal. $10 Cdn cheaper than anywhere else and free shipping and handling.  Only problem is that it took them a long time to restock, and I had to contact them often to get an update on the shipping status.  In all it took a month from the time I order till the time I recieved it.
