    No Surprises Here - Good Quality, Still Messy

    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!

    Quickly grinds coffee beans into fresh brew grinds

    I bought this in order to grind some gourmet coffee beans given to me as a gift. It did this function very well, and gives off a terrific aroma of fresh ground beans. Although you can usually use a grinder if available in a store which sells roasted beans, it's not quite the same, nor quite as freah, as grinding just the right amount of made to order beans for a fresh brewed pot just whenever you want one! This is a great and handy device to have around.

    Awesome simple coffee grinder

    What I like the most about this grinder is how simple it is to use. Just plug it in, fill it with beans, put lid on, press down and count to 20 seconds for medium grind (for drip coffee) or 30 seconds for espresso. I've use it for both brewed coffee (drip), and espresso, and it worked great. Only ding I can give it is the cord slot for holding the cord is a pain to use. So much so that I don't use it anymore. But I don't care, cause that is not why I bought this grinder.

    It's a coffee grinder

    It does what we need it to do. Grinds beans... I bought this one to replace my old Cuisinart grinder from the 90s. Not much has changed in the last 20yrs. It does a better job of grinding beans evenly as supposed to the older one, but it's deeper well is a bit more combersome when trying to out the lid on after loading beans.

    It works. It grinds coffee. IT\t looks nice on my counter. The cup does not hold enough coffee beans for our coffee, and if we fill it, they do not get ground up very well, and the grounds get hot. So I have to do 2 separate grinds, which is noisy and a pain.

    compact and does a fabulous job. I love this coffee grinder. You can easily grind the coffee beans to your exact taste. I recommend it and I like the black color too. The cord storage is very convenient as well.

    Great Grinder for Spices

    I got this on a deal of the day and couldn't pass it up. It works great for grinding hard spices like peppercorns or any other seed, plus in a pinch if my burr grinder for coffee goes down I have a backup.

    I knew going in that this wasn't big so I wasn't expecting to grind large amount of beans at a time. I only do a couple of tablespoons and this has no problem handing that. Got it on sale for $10 so it was a no brainer.

    I was surprised when I got it home that this coffee grinder only holds enough beans for maybe 6-8 cups of coffee. So I returned it. Otherwise, it looked like most of the other basic grinders out there. No cord winder.

    Owned one just like it for over 15 years. Used it every day and it did what it was supposed to do, ground up coffee beans. Why would I buy something else? Best grinder on the market.

    This is my second Cuisinart coffee grinder, the 1st one lasted for 10 years or so and would still be working had I not dropped it on the floor. Not fragile it just hit the wrong way. The new one works perfectly.

    The only way to control the courseness of the grounds is through letting it run longer - there is no setting. Also, the cup isn't removable which makes it a little harder to clean.

    I have a few of these babies but I don't use them all for coffee I grow peppers and use them to grind the dehydrated pods into powders.

    Very small only grinds about a 4 cup serving at a time. Took me 6 times to grind a full bag of coffee. But it is very sharp and works like a charm!
