Bottom Line: Price does not justify purchase of this product.
Positive Product Points

Easy to use controls and easy to load.

Negative Product Points

Loud, creates much static, grind selection limited on the fine end (for espresso with pump and lever machines); burrs made with powder metallurgy process- will wear within a year depending on use.
Price not fair considering machien is an over-dressed Melitta/Salton/Pavoni.
Made in China.

Detailed Commentary

Not a suitable product for a WIDE variety of grinds.  Works well for filter drip, press, vacuum, cone, and stove-top espresso.  All in all, a mediocre machine
