Everything about it sucks!

Detailed Commentary

This machine is used on a regular basis for drip, espresso and french press coffee making.  It can't even handle the grind for drip coffee properly.  It took about a month for it to start breaking.  The bin broken within weeks.  The plastic holder for the burrs gets too hot, so it got brittle and broke when trying to change the grind setting.  We bought it out of desperation at the time and were very sorry we did.

It doesn't really come apart for cleaning.  It's not worth buying replacement parts for... besides any new product packed with a replacement parts list has got to make you wonder.

We paid $59 at Peaberry's.  We've seen it for $69 at Cook's Mart.
