A very decent grinder for drip, vac pot, and french press brewing
Positive Product Points
Low price. Consistant grind. Very easy to clean. Small and good looking unit. Grinds fine enough for a Krups Gusto.
Negative Product Points
Will create a bit of dust. Some may say that this grinder does not grind coarse enough for french press, but that's a matter of opinion.
My first experience with a burr grinder was a cheap Mr. Coffee machine that would not grind fine enough for even drip or vac pot. I found this machine for sell on eBay and decided to give it a try. I was not at all disappointed. This machine will cover the range of grind needed for manual and auto drip, vac pot, and press with no problem. Grind is much more consistant than a whirley blade. Since I do not indulge in espresso often, I have only a Krups Gusto which this grinder will choke on the finest setting. So for all my brewing this grinder is right for me. If you prefer a very coarse grind for french press this machine may not be for you. Dust is kept at a minimum, and usually will stick to the side of the grounds container. What little static this machine produces has not been a problem. Ground coffee has always stayed inside the container, not all over the counter.
