Makes a lot powder, and an irregular grind.

Detailed Commentary

(I posted here do to the "All" heading, but I used the Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill, not the one pictured.)
Unhappy with the 1st one, I called Cuisinart; 'Huh? Ours won't grind fine, and yours grinds too fine? maybe we should trade'. (ha,ha)
So,  I exchanged  it at Costco but still had the same problem with the new one. Espresso users may like all the powder, not really sure, but it just made mud in the bottom my Capresso thermos. I had to use paper filters in the coffee basket.
Then one day shortly thereafter,  the grinder smoked, electrical.  I returned it to Costco and they refunded my money.
Granted, tis an entry level grinder, but I was better off with shaking my whirly bird coffee cutter (now donated to a thrift store ;-( ). I'm thinking maybe a hand mill, but finding one is a bit of a challenge. Eventually I will find something.
Anyway, do not buy the Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill

Buying Experience

Costco was great, refunded my money without a problem
