Summary Grinder has 19 settings to adjust for grinding that will work with just about any kind of coffee or espresso maker. Depending on your preference the bean hopper could probably be a little larger, but for my tastes, it is big enough the way it is. Unit has an automatic shut off, and if you want to stop grinding early, just push the button a second time. Removable burr is easy to clean, as is the rest of the unit.
Summary Enough grind settings to make grounds for French presses, Chemex, Percolators, Drip, Espresso, and more. It will grind from very fine to coarser grinds. Operates quieter than most other grinders, but still is noisy. Unit is durable, a bit messy, provides a consistent grind with the burr grind, and overall is a good value. If you grind dark roasts you should definitely clean the grinder output chute after each use. But then, every grinder should be cleaned after every use.
Summary Overall this is a cheap grinder that works like a cheap grinder. The beans keep needing to be pushed toward the bottom, the grind is inconsistent, and the grinder cannot provide grounds for very many types of coffee makers. If you are looking for a cheap model, I would recommend the Toastmaster 1119 Push-Button Electric Coffee and Spice Grinder. It is even cheaper, but does a much better job of grinding.
Summary Grinds directly into the espresso basket which means you can grind just enough coffee needed without a reservoir to empty or clean afterward. Unit is solidly made, and will last for an extremely long time. Provides and excellent grind quality and consistency. Comes close to being sturdy enough to be called a commercial grade grinder. Just FYI, the brass finish is a plated finish over a hard plastic.
