Detailed Commentary

I've held-off buying a "burr" grinder for several years now.  My krups blade unit has served me adequately for over 5 years, and it still running strong.
I guess I was sucked-in by the lure of the "burr" grinder elite status....but alas, I also cheaped-out and got this model.  I had been eyeballing the Cuisinart model for a while, but had to order a replacement part for my Krups blender online, and decided to impulse purchase this unit at the same time.

I can grind coffee more consistently and quickly with my old blade grinder.

I am LITERALLY sending this unit back to Krups after only a week of ownership.

Buying Experience

Krups online shipping was slow, as was customer service responsiveness.  
Additionally - my order was LITERALLY duplicated: I was sent two Grinders, of which I'm now going to be returning BOTH.  Such a hassle...
I'm not impressed with ordering factory-direct from Krups.
