Detailed Commentary

This is one of my favorite buys of all time for a small grinder. I purchased this for my travel grinder, but I still use it at the house as well. While I mostly use this for French presses and cupping, its finer grind setting work rather okay. It does fit below any cabinetry I've seen, and the power cord length is more than enough to reach an outlet. While the hopper is small, you're probably not going to serve an army with this grinder. The body is nice and heavy so it will not tip or walk away on you. The machine is easy to clean with  a small brush and a vacuum, which I generally clean about once a week for heavy use, or once every other week for lighter use. One small downsize is that it try to kick out the last couple of beans when the hopper is empty, so you may have to coax them into the burrs.

Buying Experience

good, unremarkable.
