Rated 3 out of 5Â by Tucsonan Good value but...
We enjoyed this coffee grinder for just over a hear. It's noisy, so we usually ground the coffee the night before to avoid waking late sleepers in the morning. It worked fine until this morning when I refilled the hopper and hit the start switch. It started but nothing came out. Smoke came out of the bottom, and I unplugged it. Not sure what happened, but the upshot is that I have to buy another grinder. I hesitate to be too negative about this unit, because it worked so well until today. I'm not sure what went wrong. I kept it clean and did not mistreat it. Might be that mine was flawed. I just wish the flaw had become evident before the warranty expired.

My husband has been looking and looking for a burr coffee grinder, and we couldn't find a good quality one for a decent price until we found this one! He uses several times a week (he grinds enough beans to last him a few days each time), and he absolutely loves it. The grind size settings are very convenient, and it seems to grind the beans pretty quickly without any problems. Love it!

it is LOUD - i've heard machines like this before and they've not been nearly as noisy. i know grinding is going to be noisy but wonder if other machines have more insulation. Also, this has a lid that needs to be removed and replaced to dump the grounds. others do not. and this does not sit stable on the table - it's sort of lop-sided. If I could return it I would but my situation is not allowing for that at them moment.

Having used only rotary blade bean grinders in the past, I was more than ready to upgrade to a burr grinder. The only thing holding me back was the cost. Burr grinders can be expensive. When I saw this product on the shelf at Kohl's, I gave it a good once over -- could a burr grinder in this price range stand up to daily use? It appeared to be sturdy, easy to clean and easy to use. Now that I have it in my home, I have found that it is, indeed, the product I hoped it to be. The two features I most appreciate: I can choose the size of the grind from 18 different settings, and I can select how much coffee to grind by the number of cups I will be brewing. I am glad that I purchased this product.
