Detailed Commentary

A year ago this was my first purchase of a burr grinder. It worked well over that time with the only major problem being static. These grinds were everywhere, but I got used to it over time.

Another problem is the clear plastic grind hopper. Over time this started to crack and chip but it never leaked and the surprising thing was  it was always washed by hand.

All in all a decent first burr grinder for the price.

Price paid $39.00.
