Not worth your money
The motor broke after only a few years and we barely used it. It doesn’t grind the coffee beans as fine as I would like. Not worth your money.

This Product has a FATAL flaw!
Over several years, I have purchased three of these little coffee grinders. I like them because they match my Cuisinart Coffee maker.
This grinder operates like a small blander or food processor. It makes lots of noise because the small blades operate at a high RPM. You can grind coffee beans finer by holding the button down longer. No fancy dials or timers - I like that.
It has one major flaw that has happened with all three units that I have owned and I have talked with countless other users and it happened to them as well. The little plastic push button on top that operates the grinder is cheaply made and breaks after a few months of operation. You can work it back into the hole and continue to grind beans but once the little plastic tangs have broken off the button, it won't stay in place. Too bad they haven't re-engineered this piece over the years. I give up.

I got this at our engagement party in september and it is already broken. We used it everyday for grinding coffee. Should that happen?

If you want a fine grind, do not get this. Very uneven

Hardly used it, burned out after 3 years.
I really hardly used this. Had it for three years. Used it here and there pretty lightly. I just used it to grind a bagful of beans...it smoked and burned out before I even got through the bag. I let it cool down for quite some time thinking it would come back to life, but sadly it has dropped dead.

Perfect for iced coffee
I wouldn't expect to pay $29.00 and then be able to grind espresso or run it for many minutes at a go. Nor would I be so stingy as to buy this as a wedding or shower gift. But for cold brew, which is done in small quantities of coarse grind once or twice a week, this is exactly the right appliance. Ten seconds of grinding yields enough for 6 cups of iced coffee. It takes up almost no space and it's easy to clean.

I like it. It works now for a while, at least 6 months or more. You have to wait a moment and unplug the machine, as it directs, before detaching the grinding container thing. It might be best not to fill it to top. It's also a good idea if you can't detach container to wait and let it cool down. Do not forget to unplug it before trying to detach grinding container. If it gets stuck you may think it's broken. It's not. If you want finer grind then grind it for 2 or 3 minutes. I may exchange for another one because the wire goes into the machine. It's best not to try to push it in. It gets wear and tear and the wire is somewhat frayed from pushing it into the machine and pulling it out. Don't know if there is a trick to that but it's really stupid because it tears the wire.
