Best grinder we've owned
on August 19, 2007
When my husband and I got married we EACH owned our own coffee grinder. Both of them were very dependable (one was a Waring, one a Brauning) and it took many years for them to both wear out. The Waring's plastic lid deteriorated by bits and pieces, but when we got this new grinder we still use it for a spice mill! But this one is the best ever---we just love it. It's much better than our old ones in every way. You can easily adjust the grind, and best of all the cup is detachable so it's very easy to get the coffee into the filter with NO MESS (that's one reason it doesn't need a long cord). It's even attractive-looking! We have nothing negative to say about this grinder---it's a great product.
UPDATE: TWO YEARS LATER!
I bought this grinder in June 2007 and it is still going strong after daily use for over 2 years. I've had none of the "cap-loosening problem" or "stopped working" that others reported. I'm now buying a second one for my vacation home. Things I love about this grinder:
1 You don't have to stand there and hold the button
2 It has multiple grind selections and it really DOES grind to espresso fineness
3 You can put the coffee in the lid for transport instead of having to drag the whole grinder over to your coffee pot
4 It's really dependable
5 It's attractive
6 Reasonably priced (with free shipping!)
7 Retractable cord! Yay!
8 Metal lid hasn't eroded at all over 2 years
9 And it's easy to use, too!
Best coffee grinder we've ever owned.
UPDATE: FOUR YEARS LATER! Still going strong, no problems!
UPDATE: 2013....still using it, six years later (first posted in 2007)
