Detailed Commentary

My review would be almost identical to Sean Rooney's, I find it to be a decent grind quality upgrade from the Krups whirly-blade I've used for years, but also a bit more tedious getting the grounds out and wiping the counter every time. I think it does do coarse enough for French press if you don't use that powder on the side of the bin, and if you have a fine screen on your plunger, you can get nylon ones at Sweet Maria's that fit over the steel mesh if it's not fine enough. (very minor problem: the internal transformer is always on, wasting a bit of electricity, they should put a master power switch on it...but this is true of so many appliances... I just plug 'em all into a six-outlet strip and switch that on/off)
