After going thru many other grinders I purchased this Nesco. I prefer a burr grinder but most seem to fail afrter prolonged use. This Nesco continues to perform just like the first time I used it. It does have the same problem that most other grinders have, which is it is almost impossible to get the ground coffee out of the collection chamber without getting powdery coffee around on the counter. I haven't ever seen grinder that doesn't do that. All in all I am happy with this Nesco and would buy another one.
I don't know who this coffee grinder was designed for, it is pretty. I't's too messy and finicky to use and clean up after if you grind every day, you need to clean out the chute with a little brush after each use, very messy. But though it has a big hopper, it doesn't have long enough grinding setting or fill container to make more than one pot of coffee at a time and it is only suggested to be run it twice without letting it rest for a few minutes. I've had it 2 weeks, tried to get used to it but find myself having to plan my kitchen schedule around this annoying grinder!
