Beans must be removed or grinder turned upside down to remove the bean container. It is heavy which makes this a little difficult. There is some static electricity buildup in the coffee grounds container on low humidity days.
This is a solidly built entry level burr grinder. It also looks good on the counter top.
There are 16 grind settings allowing easy adjustment. The timer is a little odd in that the numbers do not correspond to seconds or minutes and you have to guess how much to load in the bean container. After a little experience only a little waste occurs.
My experience with this grinder has been for drip and French press. For these uses it works well and does a far better job that my previous experience with blade grinders. I have not used it for espresso.
