Easy to use. Consistent high-quality grind. Got it on sale for about 1/2 price. I would buy this machine again at full price.
Negative Product Points
"Dial" for amount of time for a grind. Could be better but at this price point what's to be complained about?
The machine is easy to use. I've found the settings for my espresso maker and this machine delivers grind after grind of coffee with complete consistency and no fuss.
Before removing the receptacle, it is best to give a good thud or "rap" to the front of the machine to dislodge any ground coffee remaining in the chute area, otherwise it might find its way down after you've removed the receptacle.
After reading other reviews, it appears the mfr has had a bit of trouble with consistency from machine to machine concerning the calibration of the burr set (to produce a given grind for a given setting on the machine). Mine is calibrated nicely.
Static electricity does seem to be a bit of a problem although at this point for me it appears to be minor. If the problem is serious enough, at some point I might experiment with lining the plastic receptacle with a carefully aligned piece of aluminum foil.
This is a very nice and quite cost-effective coffee grinder. I have no real complaints at all.
Pretty easy. The particular store did not have current pricing on the shelves: only the full regular price was listed. The clerk however was on top of things and was able to look things up quickly and knew which promotions were occurring.
Three Month Followup
I am definitely happy with the machine. It performs well and consistently. I use it nearly every day, up to three times a day.
I did have to line the interior of the coffee receptacle with aluminum foil. That most definitely keeps the coffee from spewing out in electrostatic fits. Problem solved.
One Year Followup
I am still happy with this purchase. The aluminum foil liner (molded to fit as a perfect fit cup within the cup) stopped the electrostatic problem completely. Very good machine for the money I spent, there are definitely no complaints.
