Top customer reviews
1. This product is small, very small. It is about 7 inches tall and 2 inches wide at the base. I knew it was small before buying, but cannot say that I wasn't surprised when I opened the box to see just how small it is.
2. The instructions in the package come in Japanese (no English translation). Be ready to figure things out for yourself, most notably, how to adjust the grind (it's at the bottom of the grinder, you have to manually turn a nut to adjust the grind from finer to coarser and vice versa).
3. It gives you up to 2 cups worth of grind space. Perfect if you grind you coffee just before drinking (like me), but not so if you want to grind large quantities at a time. This is very much a grind-as-you-go grinder.
4. As someone mentioned before, the finest grind takes a while to get all the beans grinded. Keep at it.
5. The grinding handle detaches and reattaches, it's not one whole product. You'll just need to store the handle near the grinder.
6. It's a great budget grinder. It grinds the beans at a consistent grind. That's what you're looking for. But, you're going to have to work for it. Be sure you don't mind the work before buying this product.
Overall, I'm a satisfied customer. I've used this grinder religiously every morning for about 4 months now.
Update (11/21/12): Over 2 1/2 years later and an additional 200+ reviews since I wrote this one, I'm still using this grinder every morning to grind my coffee.
Now this grinder's greatest asset is becoming my biggest downfall: I'm officially getting tired of manually grinding my coffee. I have lost all hope that it's going to break: the only chance I have of convincing my wife to let me buy a $200 electric grinder that can equal its quality. Such is life.
'Hope you found this helpful!
In case you're a potential user, but worries about the lack of English instruction, this translation will hopefully remove your concern.
Front Cover page: nothing critical.
Back cover page: Turn the nut at the bottom clockwise to make finer grind, counterclockwise for coarser.
Inside page #1: Top: Cautions
1. Turning the handle when there is nothing inside or turning it counterclockwise will damage the burrs. Don't do it.
2. Turning the nut/dial clockwise too far may damage the burrs.
3. Small piece of coffee bean can get stuck and prevent coffee from falling down. This may result in turning the handle without actually grinding any coffee bean. Tap the coffee mill occasionally to prevent this from happening.
4. Over time, the mill wears down. When the amount of coffee beans you can grind decreases significantly, it's time to buy a new one.
1. Grind a small amount of coffee beans to see how much you need to turn the nut/dial to get the fineness you need.
2. put 1-2 cup worth of bean into the hopper: 1 cup = 10-12 g, 2 cupts = 20-24 g (see marks on the hopper). Don't over-load above the 2-cup mark.
3. Hold the mill firmly in one hand as you turn the handle slowly. Make sure the hopper cover is closed tightly.
Inside Page #2: Top: drawing that shows individual components, pretty self-explanatory.
Bottom: Care instruction
1. You can take apart the mill for cleaning
2. The nut/dial can be removed by turning counterclockwise.
3. After taking the nut off, you'll be able to take out the inner and outer parts of the mill/burrs
4. Oil from the coffee bean will get on the mill. Wash with soap.
5. Do not put the parts in dishwasher. Do not use bleach.
6. Do not lubricate the mill with oil
I hope you'll enjoy your new grinder as much as I do.
If you understand what you are getting then this is a great little product. The reason I decided on this one is because it has a lid to keep the beans from bouncing out which means you can hold the grinder in your hands and at an angle while grinding, as opposed to having to keep the device planted on a counter top or table while grinding. With this one you can walk around or go sit down or whatever you want while grinding. It also has a very easy adjustment mechanism to change the coarseness of the grind and the whole thing is very compact. The burs are ceramic so they will never wear down. To me, for the money this is the best one out there.
***UPDATE*** March 2012
I've had this grinder and have been using it for about 18 months. I have had no problems and am still very happy with my purchase. The ability to change the coarseness of the grind is one of my favorite features. If I want my coffee to be REALLY strong I can grind the beans into a fine powder (which takes a little longer) or if I want it to be regular strength I can set it to a more coarse grind (which takes less time). With a little experimentation you can find the setting that works best for you. This is a solid little contraption and I would still highly recommend it.
