This product is not good. Although it looks good, it's messy, coffee beans rapidly clog up the grinder. if you use an "oily" bean, don't expect it last very long. I found myself constantly unclogging and unjamming it, and finally one day it just started smoking (and wound up in the recycle bin). Don't waste your dollars on this one.
The quantity of beans has to be a lot less than the quantity of water in the coffee maker. I want 8 cups of coffee I should have enough beans for 8..............but I have to set it on only 4 cups and it is still too strong.

This is the second grinder...the first one quit working and overstock replaced it because it was within the 90 days. Now, this grinder quit working and we have to contact the company since the warranty is one year and it is only 3 months + old. We will not buy another, not worth the money.
I received my grinder only 5 weeks ago, & ground coffee with it exactly 3 times before it stopped working. The timer still goes, although I can think of no practical use for the machine since the grinder does not do a thing. After filling the hopper to the "fill line", I set the timer for 12 cups. It did grind about 1/2 inch worth of coffee into the receptacle, but then just stopped. I waited the recommended minute while waiting for the timer to wind down, then reset the timer. Absolutely no grinding ! After 3 hours, still nothing. I cleaned the whole thing again; still no grinding. The next step is to see if there's a dealer that can fix it...or just to toss it.
I so hoped this would work... I chose it over a like priced grinder I knew worked well. This grinds EVERYTHING ultra fine. No matter how coarse the setting, the finished product comes out the same: turkish. I should have gone with what I knew... I so hoped...
