Jeff Dubrule (quality: 10.0) 03.13.2010 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: Can't make espresso grinds due to its fake burrs.  Don't buy it, even "just for now", you'll never learn anything.
Matt Johnson (quality: 10.0) 12.16.2010 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Easy to use basic burr grinder, not for espresso, but a decent value and step up from the whirly bird blade grinders.
Jonathan Friedes (quality: 9.5) 11.25.2007 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: If you are passive-aggressive, and you are looking for the perfect present for a coffee-loving ex, this is it!
Larry Schwarcz (quality: 9.5) 05.05.2007 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: It works OK when using a paper filter to brew but really is a low-end grinder.
Aaron Corey (quality: 8.5) 10.24.2007 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: If the only coffee you make is drip with a paper filter- this would be an alright grinder, but so would just about anything else.  I would suggest you pass on this item, and find something that is manufactured with more precision.
Fabrizio Scalfo (quality: 8.0) 06.27.2011 Rating: 5.0
Bottom Line: DO NOT Buy, if you use a pump driven espresso machine
Chad Beauford (quality: 8.0) 12.10.2007 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: Stylish good looks and counter-friendly compactness will not overcome the fine powder included at every grind setting.
Mike Proms (quality: 7.5) 01.03.2010 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Great grinding for home coffee making... as long as you treat it with respect.
Jessica Aubrey (quality: 7.5) 05.06.2006 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: If the sand doesnt break it withing the next 8 months i swear Im buying one for every one I know.
Jeff M (quality: 7.4) 05.16.2006 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Great coffee grinder, lousy espresso grinder, however easy and cheap to modify in 5 minutes.
Mark D'Angelo (quality: 6.7) 12.20.2007 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Basically save up for something decent, and dont waste money on something that "looks" like its a real burr grinder, because clearly its not..
Barry Strum (quality: 6.0) 05.15.2008 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: Calling all mentsches....but no mavens. After a few months with this machine I find its behavior annoying....noise, dust, Dots are not settings...merely dots !!
John Rolison (quality: 6.0) 05.25.2007 Rating: 5.0
Bottom Line: Keep Looking!
Tyler Aftab (quality: 6.0) 07.18.2013 Rating: 6.2
Bottom Line: Not worth it
Eric Windisch (quality: 6.0) 03.30.2012 Rating: 6.2
Bottom Line: Best under-$50 option for brewing french-press or (manual) drip. Not for espresso.
Keith Wissman (quality: 6.0) 04.09.2007 Rating: 6.2
Bottom Line: Okay for the money, not good enough for us snobs.
Shadow 745 (quality: 5.8) 01.14.2006 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: If you're looking for an affordable, stylish, well built, consistent grinder look no further.
Anthony C (quality: 5.0) 01.06.2010 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: If you can find it on sale, go for it, otherwise, if you need a serious grinder, go for the nemox, Le'lit, Ascaso, or Gaggia.
David Carlson (quality: 5.0) 01.23.2009 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: For the everyday drip coffee drinker, an excellent, low cost step up from your chop grinder
Betina Vincent (quality: 4.0) 03.22.2005 Rating: 3.6
Bottom Line: skip this, and spend a little more for a decent burr grinder.
Carl Scott (quality: 3.0) 12.20.2009 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Apparently not able to compete with the expensive ones, but I've found it quite adequate for the roughly 10 years I've owned it.
Chris W (quality: 3.0) 07.19.2008 Rating: 5.0
Bottom Line: Good for drip coffee while it lasted - which was too short of a time!
Chris Arrick (quality: 2.5) 01.12.2007 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: great for home use but I have mine hidden from public view at my cafe as it might seem a little weird for a coffeehouse to have a grinder like this one.  But I don't have a lot of money and this is perfect.  Small and hard working.
Jack Moran (quality: 2.0) 12.27.2006 Rating: 2.8
Bottom Line: Don't buy
Chris Chartier 04.23.2009 Rating: 4.2
Bottom Line: Don't bother, the grind consistency is horrible.
Charles Fiend 08.06.2013 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: Blade grinder at higher price.
Gabriel Takacs 02.24.2013 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: Reasonably well-made, good looking grinder that is completely unsuitable for espresso.
Mike P 03.22.2012 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: For someone doing drip coffee with a paper filter it's fine, and the timer means you don't need to measure scoops.
Steve P 01.30.2012 Rating: 2.6
Bottom Line: Waste of money, look elsewhere.  This grinder would not be worth buying if it were $5.00.
Suzanne Coyle 02.24.2008 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: Dont buy this unit!  Very very messy.  Noisy.  Ours started smoking after only 3 mo. use.  Took it back.
Jeffrey Ferdi 04.18.2010 Rating: 4.2
Bottom Line: Will yield very coarse, inconsistent grounds. And is very noisy in doing so. The "espresso"(finest) setting, is still no good unless you want to filter brew or use a french press.
Daniel Gunter 12.07.2008 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: A decent start if you're not too picky.
Abe Stern 04.20.2009 Rating: 6.2
Bottom Line: If you understand what $50 will get you and are comfortable with that then this is a great grinder.
Ben Krasnow 12.06.2009 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: This grinder is well-built, but it just doesn't produce a consistent enough grind for any brew method.
Jay Bayfield 03.09.2014 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Dependable, nice looking grinder that gives inconsistent grind size.
