Bottom Line: If only it worked as good as I hoped it would. Like the size, color, etc.  Don't like the way it works.  It's a bean buster.
Positive Product Points

Dose selector, off button, nice size, looks nice, Burr grinder?

Negative Product Points

Not consistant in the size of the grind, Feels cheap, not fine enough for anything but french press

Detailed Commentary

I bought This grinder to replace a Black and Decker CBM205 that I sold to a friend that didn't have a grinder, but wanted to try some home roasted coffee.   I had seen it in the store before and liked the idea that I could select the amount of coffee that I was going to need, and not have extra left in the bin to get old.  I also liked the idea that there was an off switch on the grinder.  There is not many things like the sound of a jambed up grinder spinning up and whining early in the morning in a sleeping household!   I liked the look of this grinder, and the size.  

I was heartbroken when I went to use the grinder.  It didn't seem to matter if I set it to fine or course.  The settings should have said "bad" and "worse".  The ground coffee was not fine enough to use in an espresso, moka pot etc.  I would be ok if you were doing French press or drip.  It would work for most coffee that you might use a fairly course grind.  It did make the press coffee a bit bitter than it might have been otherwise, probably because of the uneven grind.

I guess it's a plate burr grinder not a conical burr grinder.

Buying Experience

I bought it ok, but I lost the reciept and now I guess I'm stuck with it.  I can't really give it away because people that know better won't use it, and people who are new to coffee - I want them to enjoy good, fresh, quality coffee made right.  I bought another Black and decker CBM205 to replace it with at work.  I want a grinder below $50 to keep at the office because someone might take it.
