Negative Product Points
won't grind fine enough! messy - grinds and flap not the best grind, slightly uneven
The flap is very messy, grinds get all over the counter if you move the grinder or bump it. When grinding, espresso dust "seeps" out thru the top and collects. Make sure you've got the small glass collector right underneath the "spout" or grinds will really get all over the counter/floor.
It's easy to pour or scoop beans into the glass container - the top has a tight fit, although, sometimes difficult to screw off - it gets kind of sticky... but I guess that will keep the oxygen out.
The reason I would not recommend this is because of the grind. Not fine enough for espresso. My espresso just pours out, is very weak...
This machine grinds very fast and is nice when we have company over, it's satisfactory for reg. coffee.
I should have spent the $50-80 more for a Solis Maestro.
