Bottom Line: Don't waste your money.
Cassidy Vare 02.19.2010 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: Honestly, I'd rather have a whirly-blade grinder. It's at least as good, and less than half the price.
Bruce Honnigford 01.11.2009 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: For $50 it's fine for med to coarse grinds on a budget. For $5 it's a gift from a god.

Bottom Line: you don'tbuy a Ferrari forthepriceof a Miata.
Beth Sanguine (quality: 9.0) 09.05.2006 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Great grinds for bean novices and those of us with "set incomes."
William Fite (quality: 9.0) 05.14.2006 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: Defective design, materials, and manufacturing.  Don't waste money on this one.
Tree Head (quality: 4.0) 05.13.2006 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: DO NOT BUY: Messy, chips/breaks easily,  grind selector dial next to impossible to adjust.
Benjamin Kieran (quality: 8.5) 02.22.2006 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: Look elsewhere - this simply doesn't do any job well or even adequately.
Dennis Vogel (quality: 6.0) 10.15.2005 Rating: 5.0
Bottom Line: Waste of time for Espresso. Should have put the money towards a better grinder. Live and learn.
Andrew Klakken (quality: 5.0) 12.12.2004 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: If you only make drip coffee with paper filters this unit will work for you. Just keep a paper plate under it for the mess.
Jacob McDonald (quality: 4.0) 03.22.2004 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: Don't bother. Get a Solis.
Lance Goffinet (quality: 8.5) 12.07.2003 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: This grinder is barely adequate for drip coffee, but definately better than a blade grinder.
Boyd Nielsen (quality: 6.5) 12.07.2003 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: Messy, messy, messy, with flimsy plastic.
Jeremy Close (quality: 6.5) 04.29.2003 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: What other choice is there at under $A200?
Peter Bishop (quality: 7.5) 04.25.2003 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: Don't waste $50... not even if it's just for drip.
Ken Liao (quality: 6.0) 03.13.2003 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: Huge step up from blade grinders, though if I was in the market for another, I'd be tempted to look at the Solis.
Scott Gay (quality: 6.0) 02.23.2003 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: I once loved it, now I hate it.
Allen Eggemeyer (quality: 6.3) 10.16.2002 Rating: 3.6
Bottom Line: Piece of junk that turns coffee beans into a mess. Wouldn't take it for free.
Robert Shupp (quality: 7.0) 07.03.2002 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: OK if you are making drip/press only and don't mind a mess
First Last (quality: 4.7) 06.26.2002 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Hey, its better than any blade grinder.
