Gets the job done, but many flaws
on April 21, 2012
Original review was 4 stars simply because I wanted a working coffee bean grinder, and this did that.
Purchased product in Feb 2010, and since purchase after a second or two of grinding, a typical electrical 'burn' smell emits from the device, but quickly dissipates after use. Not as bad if you aren't grinding many beans, but if you're brewing a full pot of coffee and need fine grounds, this product would literally 'stink' while it grinded. Not sure if it's a model issue or a 'dud' from a bad batch.
Very intermittent use since that time frame as I was a Starbucks addict, but now finding it cheaper, more convenient and better to just home brew. After using it more frequently, I've noticed the cord is extremely short, only a 1 year warranty....i'd probably invest in a better grinder that would look better, be of better quality and possible a better warranty on my next buy.
