These grinders have been around a long time, so I knew what to expect. My beans grind fairly evenly, or as evenly as one could expect, and overall the machine performs as indicated. The cord storage provided seems to be awkward and take quite a bit to jam the cord up into the space provided, so I wasn't able to give 5 stars for that reason and I think the capacity could be a bit larger. Two final points: 1) this was a Deal of the Day so the price I paid couldn't be beat and I just looked again and prices for this grinder are 50% more than what I paid which was $9.99; 2) I always check "no" on recommending to a friend. I think the question is an insult to me and my friends. My friends are fully capable of making their own coffee grinder device decisions and they don't need my two cents about it. So, why am I writing this review? For the 25 Best Buy points I'm supposed to be getting for writing. Rest assured, this is my honest opinion and the points offer didn't sway my rating or my review in any way. Imagine how unfair that'd be to the device manufacturer!
