Bottom Line: Loved it for the six weeks I had with it before it broke. They just can't seem to make this model reliable.

Purple Pig (quality: 6.0) 03.27.2005 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: I don't like it ( was - Good burr grinder for under $100. Good looks, no plastic and easy to clean)
C. A. Brooks (quality: 7.6) 04.21.2006 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: If you like big messy grinders that don't deliver consistency,  you gotta try this one ! ! !
Keith McCandlish (quality: 2.5) 09.12.2004 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: Great idea, good looks but a lack of customer service makes this a risky purchase and it does not grind fine enough for espresso.
Rob Havelt (quality: 6.3) 09.04.2006 Rating: 2.8
Bottom Line: Cool looking machine - too bad it doesn't work...
Helen Nickells (quality: 5.6) 03.27.2005 Rating: 2.4
Bottom Line: Piece of garbage, don't waste your money
Marietta VB (quality: 7.2) 05.15.2005 Rating: 2.4
Bottom Line: If you like the looks, print off a picture and tape next to you coffee machine - don't actually try to use one of these.
Foo Bar (quality: 6.2) 01.21.2006 Rating: 2.0
Bottom Line: If you enjoy cleaning coffee grounds spewed in a 3 foot radius, this is the machine for you.
