Bottom Line: Good Beginner Blade Grinder that is safe to use.
Positive Product Points

Very small blade grinder that is cheap and if used just right can make some nice espresso ground coffee.
Tucks away in a drawer when not in use
Good safety mechanism

Negative Product Points

Took a long time to figure out the grind (only one setting, ON/OFF)
Some static cling to plastic

Detailed Commentary

Bought this Black and Decker (yes the maker of power tools) from a Canadian Tire (a power tool place) along with my very first espresso machine, which is not even listed here (made by Oster, still works too!)  Anyway, the top holds the beans, about half a cup and the plastic lid fits into place and you push the button to start.  The longer you hold the button, the more it grinds, it is just that simple!  The hard part is figuring out how long to hold the button to get the right consistency that you need for your specific machine and your tastes.  That took me over 6 months to figure out 30 seconds for espresso, 20 for perculator, and 12 for French Press.

Buying Experience

Good, I guess.  At that price I figure if it didn't work I would just throw it away.
