To my considerable relief and pleasure, the Canister is simply amazing. The grounds are consistent in size, the rotating action is pleasurably resistant, and the grinder itself is sturdy and well-made. My coffee is richer and more delicate.
To address some of the concerns expressed before: 1) as with anything that has a rotating handle longer in radius than the base that supports it, there is a bit of wobble and bit of associated fumbling. Simply press down on the lid with the non-action hand to stabilize, and make sure that a bit of upper body weight is supplementing the action hand's rotating force. Expect the errant bean to cause some jarring, but I think that's part of the fun. 2) I think it's part of the charm and non-trivial effort associated with hand-grinding your beans to experiment with grind settings. As such, with analog machines like this, switching between grind settings takes work, but the work doesn't have to be tedious or painful. Count the threads above the locking nut to move between grinds if necessary. I screw the nut down pretty far for my Chemex, then unscrew at least three threads up for french press.
The Canister is a luxury, to be sure. The feel of the metal, the wooden knob, the cork stopper, and the glass canister is part of the ridiculously decadent, sensate coffee ritual I partake in each morning. I've taken to waking up earlier each morning to make sure I have enough time to make coffee with the Canister, and I think my life is better for it. It seems silly, even (or perhaps especially) to me, to attribute something like quality of life to something as trivial as a coffee grinder, but the small things in life do matter, and I care just enough about the small things for them to matter.
So, I've been grinding coffee with this little grinder for a couple of weeks now. Seems like a lot of people consider a manual coffee grinder as a "decoration" rather than a machine to get a job done. I was real worried that this thing would be "flimsy" and chose it because it "looked" to be better constructed than a lot of other coffee grinders. I was not disappointed. The canister is glass, so it's fragile - of course, but the grinder is metal and ceramic and solid enough that I imagine I'll be using this thing for many years to come on a daily basis.
It's pretty easy to adjust for different coarseness of the grind. I've been doing a pretty thick grind for the French Press and it's done a pretty good job with that. I think it's opening and closing the gap where it grinds, nothing too mechanically complicated. When you open it up quite a bit it starts giving you large chunks of the beans, but I can't imagine anyone needing a grind that coarse anyway. Personally, I'm thinking of trying a finer grind rather than a more coarse grind.
The rubber piece on the bottom is something that you put on, rather than a permenant piece. I'm not sure what it's for unless your cabinet is pretty slick.
I was worried that it would be cumbersome or difficult to grind the coffee. It's not. Waiting for water to boil in the microwave to use the French Press is a bigger "burden" than grinding the coffee. I make one 8 ounce cup and it takes me less than 30 seconds to pour the beans in and grind. The whole thing is super easy to operate and takes almost no arm strength.
The ONLY complaint I have about this grinder is that it's not super easy to hold on to. It's not hard to hold on to, it just "could" theoretically be a little easier. The problem is how narrow the canister is and that the crank goes way outside of that radius. So, any downward pressure on the crank makes it want to tip over. It's not enough of a problem for me to consider buying a different grinder, and I suspect this is a common problem on manual grinders that have a long enough crank arm to make the grinding easy. You definatley don't want to shorten the crank arm, because that will just make grinding more arm work. But a canister that's 12 inches in diameter would look a bit akward even if it would be easier to press down on to hold the grinder in place while you crank the arm.
It "might" bother some people that ALL the instructions that come with it are in Japanese. What, you don't read Kanji? However, it really doesn't matter. "Assembly" is basically: put the rubber ring on the canister at the bottom. Unscrew the screw at the top with your hand and put the crank on it. Then put the screw back on and tighten. There's a little piece that you turn under where the crank is attached that controls the coarseness of the grind. Adjust it and you're ready to go. It comes with a "guard" to prevent beans from comming out of the hopper, but I haven't had a need to use it. But assembly and setup is THAT simple. A fourth grader could do it without instructions.
Anyway, it's well built and does a real good job. I'm VERY satisfied with the purchase. I would recommend it to my best friend.
