I could not get the hopper to lock in place, therefore, could not get the beans to grind. Then beans got stuck in the opening to the grinder. Could not get the darn thing to work, maybe it was just this one, but I sent it back. It looks great sitting on the counter and I loved the idea of the coffeemaker grinding the beans just before brewing. But now I will go back to my old coffeemaker and separately grind the beans myself! Not so sure I would recommend this one!
