Solid and quality feeling product. If you want a blade type grinder, this is one to carefully consider.
Positive Product Points
Very solid design - quality feel - excellent blades and grinding action - but I'd expect Cuisinart to be able to build a machine that would be grind and cut stuff up!
Negative Product Points
No bad aspects to report.
This coffee grinder is weighty and solid, dressed nicely in a Stainless Steel exterior. The blades are sharp... the whole thing just says quality. It even offers a cover for the grinder bowl, I guess if you want to grind more beans than you need immediately.
The asthetics of the design are top rate, bit unlike their equally well designed coffee pot with built in grinder, this one actually works as promised.

This model should last for years
Macy's is a quality shop. No complaints - apart from the usual complaint that none of the clerks I met know anything about their products.
Three Month Followup
One Year Followup
Flawed design - the blade spins off and the unit is trashed. The first one failed - the replacement broke in only 4 months.
