This grinder works OK for my task which is grinding spices. It has a very strange blade assembly that is free to float around when the bowl is not mounted.
The blade is also sits rather high, about 3/8" from the bottom. It does take a little longer to grind spices in this grinder than the old Krups I was using but the SS removable bowl makes it worth it.
Be aware that you will have a big mess if grinding to a power if you don't make a simple fix.
Just place a rubber band inside the plastic lid, around the perimeter. Place it close enough to the edge so that when you install the lid, the bowl will slide the rubber band into place. This will act like a gasket and seal the gap.

came in the mail quickly, have had for 3 months now and love having freshly ground coffee... powerful yet compact. I have not used it to grink other spices but with the stainless steel removable cup imagine will clean easily without flavor or scent residue. great buy.
I wanted a bur grinder, but was tempted by the price/size/brand name of this one. It is very quiet, grinds efficiently, and is easy to keep clean. I have no problem controlling the coarseness of the grind, which was a concern for me since I use a french press. I have been very happy with this product.

The refurbishment was poorly done on this one: The grinder smells like pepper and every time I grind coffee in it, the bottom tray under metal cup has ground pepper that's come out of the grinder, along with strange shavings that look like plastic.
The coffee grinder is good but I cannot get an expresso grind. If I continue grinding there is a burn odor. I've tried small batches and get some expresso but mostly it's just a fine grind. If you want a very fine grind like expresso this is not the machine. Otherwise it's good.
A burr , and more expensive, grinder will always provide a more consistent size grind. But this one does great......I ordered a reconditioned one and appears to be new.
I'm really picky about what sits out on my counter....this one passed w flying colors. Compact and stylish.
This replaces my burr that died....am happy. I grind for my Kuerig so needs to be fine grind.
After a little over two years of faithful service my grinder finally threw in the towel. I've ordered refurbished products from Overstock before and have never had an issue. That was the case with this little gem. It came out of the box looking brand new and worked as it should. It was a little noisy but not too terribly bad. I love the removable cup. It makes for easy transfer from grinder to coffee pot. It ground the beans to an even consistency. There isn't a way to set how course or fine you want your beans ground but that's an easy fix by simply grinding them longer. Overall, I must really like this grinder cuz I'm ordering another one to replace my broken one. If that isn't an endorsement I don't what is.
When I received this product, looked brand new not refurbished. Small does not take much room on my counter. It ground my coffee beans to perfection, cleaning is a snap, thanks overstock and continue to provide us with more of these great deals at rock bottom prices.
Attractive-looking and quiet- no more do I wake my other half in the morning early when grinding my coffee. Sleek lines with a nice stainless finish. Love the included cup topper so that I can have coffee fresh and ready to grind upon awakening. I have not attempted to use it for anything other than coffee but it grinds down nice and gives me a good full-bodied cup.
Hi, what kind of cup does the coffee grind into and where is it located? I don't see it from the picture.michhonea on Jun 23, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
