Excellent grinder This grinder is a fantastic deal for the price. The prior reviews about coffee getting stuck under blades is caused by over grinding. If you have a large quantity of beans, just shake in-between grinding. Smaller quantities, no problem. Also, instead of lifting the top off, turn it over so the ground coffee goes into the lid. The lid is nice and large and will come off with out issue. Great grinder for coffee. Buying another one for spices. They come in black and white. Good to have one color for each. March 7, 2013
Coffee & Spice Grinder Very pleased! It is as the desciption stated & does exactly what I need it to do!!! November 23, 2012
I don't have any complaints I was leery of purchasing this at first becuase I read some bad reviews. However I decided to anyway becuase I didn't want to pay more than $20 bucks for a coffee grinder. I do not have a hard time using it, it is easy to clean, it makes a little noise....however I find it hard to believe a coffee grider can be quiet. I have only used it to grind coffee, so I do not know how well it works for spices but I imagine it works great for that to. Overall if your looking for a inexpensive coffee grinder, I would reccommend this one. May 20, 2012
OK if you have big hands My Krups grinder broke after many years of good service, and I chose this one to replace it because of the cord storage in the base, which is a major pro. Other pros: (1) It's much quieter than the Krups. (2) It has a bigger capacity. (3) It does a good job of grinding. (Unlike the other reviewer, I do not find large clumps of coffee stuck under the blades. Depending on the oiliness of the coffee used, there is a small amount stuck around the sides at the bottom, but that has happened with every coffee grinder I've owned.) Cons: (1) Because the cup of the grinder is large, it's impossible to pour the coffee into my smaller French press without spilling some on the counter. (2) It's a little slower than my old grinder. (3) The biggest problem for me is that the top is too too large for my hand to fit around comfortably, so getting the top off is hard. It requires two hands and usually comes off with a jerk, spilling some of the ground coffee on the counter and (since I have to hold it against me with one hand, on me. For someone with large hands, it would be fine. Because of the second point against it, I am returning it. January 20, 2011
