Fairly quiet. Easy to clean with a brush. Consistent grind for drip and french press.
Negative Product Points
Not suitable for a pump espresso machine.
I paid $50 new for this grinder and was satisfied with it until I purchased my first espresso machine. The grinder‘s finest setting is nowhere near where it should be I suspect. I have to tamp with a tremendous amount of force and add a bit more than the proper amount of grounds to get a decent shot.
Recently at that finest setting, the grinder has been making a much louder noise when used. I‘m pretty sure that the burrs are touching. I have no idea why this is happening now or how bad it is for the machine.
That being said, this grinder is a big step up from the blade grinder I was using before it. Reccomendation - if you are on a budget and have no intention to use it for espresso, then this is a good grinder for you. If you plan on using this for espresso, don‘t even consider this grinder.
