Hey it grinds the beans for my Melitta one cup coffee filter. It gets the job done; enough said

Negative Product Points

It is a little messy from the static. So clean it up! right?

Detailed Commentary

I've never seen so much whinning about a product that works just fine. You people on coffee geek need to drink a good cup of coffe and get a life. I almost bought one of those wooden hand crank jobs for $26.. Thank god I didn't. I mean if I lived in a log cabin it would be invaluable, but I don't and I don't feel like cranking.
This grinder is a lot better than the generic coffee mills and I couldn't find anything cheaper that does this job.
I don't grind enough coffee for for just one cup. I grind enough for 4 or 5 days. I'm retired so I only drink 3 or 4 cups instead of the 6 to 10 cups I drank when I (casino dealer and floorperson) worked. The casino coffee sucked but I drank it to help me track all the action. Now I sit down down and drink coffee with my retired nighbor a couple of mornings a week and solve the worlds problems over 3 or 4 cups columbian arabica.
I use the largest (coarse) setting# 19 for grinding.

Buying Experience


Three Month Followup

It still grinds the beans. That's all I want it for. As long as it works I'm happy (knock on wood). I think I'm getting my MONEY'S WORTH!!!

One Year Followup

It's still grinding as when I first bought it. I grind two & 2/3 cups about every four or five days.  As long as it works I'm happy. During the summer I make a 9 cup pot for ice coffee. So then I have to grind more often. I grind an equal blend Eight O'Clock 100% Columbian and Julius Mienl Jubilee Blend. I still keep the grinder in the original box and have all the paper work that came with it. The box is wearing out a little. When not on use the griner is stored in a cabinet so I don't have to worry about it being dropped. I would buy this again if I had to, without thinking twice.
