Detailed Commentary

The real reason I wrote this review is to pass on a tip for drip users. But I will say that this unit has provided great service for three years with an Aero setup. No complaints. But I've since switched to a drip system with basket filters.

One of my pet peeves with this grinder is the tendency to dribble grinds when you removal the glass hopper. Yes, I know, the glass hopper reduces static-cling, and that's great, but when you remove the hopper a few grinds dribble out which eventually result in a cleanup job.

So here's the tip: If you use a drip maker with basket-type filters, open a filter and put it where the glass hopper normally sits, which lets the grinds drop directly into the filter. Run the grinder for the requisite number of seconds. Voila! Fresh grinds with no cleanup.

In this regard I give this grinder 10 out of 10. Most other grinders don't offer the ability to drop grinds right into the filter.

Buying Experience

This grinder was a gift to us, so I can't comment on the buying experience.

Three Month Followup

No change... still doing the direct-to-filter thing. No complaints.
