This is about the fastest grinder I have used. It's simple and easy to add the coffee and is easy to pour the ground coffee into your canister or right into your filter for your maker. I've had others and this isby far the best I have ever used. sooooo great! It grinds more than one coffee maker full and cleanup is a breeze. If your looking for a nice addition to your coffee bar this is the one to choose and it's great next to the Cuisinart Maker too!
