Positive Product Points

Looks nice, simple to use, great grinder for coffee only.

Negative Product Points

Not great at all for espresso,  the grind doesn't get fine enough.

Detailed Commentary

I went to a local hardware store, and purchased 3 #6 lock washers for only 10 cents each. I unscrewed the bean hopper, unscrewed the stationary burr that is attached to the hopper.  I placed the 3 lock washers under the burr grinder, and raised it up a millimeter or 2.  Rescrew the burr back onto the hopper, screw the hopper back onto the machine, re-adjust the grind thickness. The 2 burrs will now be much closer together, so MAKE SURE THE BURRS DO NOT TOUCH. The easiest way to tell is to remove the canister off the front, and with a flashlight, make the adjustments visually through the front dispersing hole.  You will see the spacing between the burrs become closer as you turn the hopper clockwise. For only 30 cents, i turned this coffee-only grinder into an espresso grinder, and it has worked great since.

Buying Experience

Purchased off the shelf at a local home and garden store.
