Detailed Commentary

I'll be honest: i'm not good enough with coffee to judge grind consistency, so i won't comment on it.
About the negs: it looks great but i dare you to grind for 4 double shot worth of beans: the square shape is difficult to hold, the glass container for grounds vibrates loose due to the grinding.
What's far worse is that the internals are in plastic. After less than a year the bottom burr started spinning in this plastic body making it irrepairable and plainly defect. For the price, this is unacceptable. The body should be in steel and/or the outside shape of the bottom burr should be made differently so that it can't slip in the body. Failed!

Buying Experience

It didnt put me off manual grinders, but i'll happily look elsewhere
