Negative Product Points
Produces a lot of static electricity Constantly jams necessitating shaking or turning of the coarseness dial to free Hopper is very tiny Grounds are pushed through a hole in the side rather than dropped in to the container....lame
This was a gift...I really wanted a burr grinder, and understandably these are fairly affordable. Cool. At first I loved it. It produces flavorful coffee. But as I became more familiar, my expectations of it changed. One very annoying thing is the static electricity produced. It makes a lot of S.E.! So much so that I had a routine....take out the grinds bin...lift off the lid and basically toss the bin upside down into my cone filter basket. Grinds stick everywhere and this seemed to get most of them in the right location.
A second point that really annoyed me is that the motor will grind and then a bean would stop the flow and you hear the rpm wind up as the gears just spin. So I would shake the machine to remove the jam and it would grind again. This happens often. After a while I learned I could just turn the coarseness dial back and forth...this would usually work to unjam the beans too.
This grinder became such a nuisance for me that I eventually just went back to a blade. A very fickle little grinder this is....proceed with caution.
This was a gift...I would never recommend this unit.
