The grounds tend to spin off to the side of the grinder. When I am done I tap it against the table a few times, and they fall into the center will. I can then transfer the grounds without any problems. I am also able to get almost all the grounds out, unlike the Salton.
Nice features include a tuck-away cord and a cap that allows you to meaure how many cups you are grinding for.
A couple of features I have questions about: one is that there is a very short time between "coarse", "medium", and "fine". Could a couple of seconds really make the difference? Secondly as I mentioned before the grounds tend to spin off to the side away from the blade. I suppose this could be a feature of the device (spun off grounds could indicate they're "done"). It does, after all, ground the coffee beans extremely well, and I never had any problems with the grounds thave have spun off.
People complain of this grinder making a mess. I'm not sure how. The whole machine is small enough with an ergonomic design for gripping, that I just turn it over and pour the grinds directly into the brewer's filter, or into a sealed container for later use. To make sure all the grinds comeout, I just smack the whole thing down on the counter two times, all of it loosens up, and out it comes. Been doing that for 4 years, and its held up just fine.
Was a bad mistake - it stopped working within a month like the reviews mention. Called up customer support - can ship it back, and mail a return payment so that they can give us a new one. However, that would apparently cost about $18 for the shipping back and forth making it totally worthless.
I'm not going near this brand again across the board - there's plenty of other competitors to choose from.

The silver portion of the finish is paint, not stainless steel.

I use this grinder for grinding spices. I am sure it would work equally as well for grinding coffee. It works like a charm and is easy to clean. Great product.Published on November 16, 2009 by Carl E. Schauble
