Inexpensive, full & adjustable range of grinds, consistent grinds, reliable
Negative Product Points
Not suitable for single dose grinding, hard to clean, noisy, spews coffee grounds, doser doesn‘t work.
I hated this grinder - it worked well enough so that I didn‘t want to ditch it, but it was really unpleasant to use. It sounds like an airraid siren, and it generates so much static that you can use it for a science experiment. Finally, the thing has to be disassembled at 1/2 lb grind intervals for cleaning. Cleaning consists mainly of using a metal pick to lever out coffee beans stuck into the slotted sides of the upper burr grinder (why these slots were there I don‘t know)
Although it'll grind everything from french press to turkish, about 15 - 20 grams of coffee gets stuck in the works. So it won't do for single dose espresso grinding -- you'll be getting the last dose you ground
I know it‘s only sixty dollars, but if you value your time & ears, buy something more expensive. I use the Solis Mulino now, and I'm a happy camper. The "would buy again" marker seems to be stuck on yes, please ignore it
Internet order, but I don't remember from where.

My comments stand with one small proviso. Most grinders at this pricepoint don't work at all, so the Briel isn't quite as awful as I said. I guess my basic advice is to avoid all grinders at this price point, and to either spend more on a new grinder or hunt for a bargain price on a used one.
