Beautiful precision machined device; unfortunately the design is deficient in several respects; first the adjustment for the grind fineness is finicky and has no provision to lock in or return to a setting. This is especially troublesome since the number of turns of the grinder and time spent grinding depends on that setting; quicker for course Much longer for fine; not to mention the character of the brew. Secondly the instructions advise you to be sure nothing has become lodged betwen the bur grinding surfaces before adjusting. And yet if you attempt to dismantle the bur/adjuster/ shaft assembly you will be surprised by a small spring that will pop out sending parts across your kitchen floor. Thirdly an internal toothed lock washer is used to provide retention of the assembly along the axial direction but this relies on friction from teeth that have been bent to grip the shaft; this friction inevitably weakens with use and allows the bur cones to slip when a hard been...
This is my second one. With the first, everything fit very well. After 1+ year, a small plastic internal part broke. So I replaced the entire grinder. The new grinder lid is super loose, and the bottom piece is super tight. However it does grind one cup of coffee at a time the way I want it. I suspect in a year or two, I will have to replace it again because the same small black part may break. Great design. They just need to fix the one internal plastic part design and adjust the manufacturing equipment to get a better fit of the various parts.
Excellent little coffee grinder! Now I can have fresh ground coffee beans for my morning espresso without waking up the rest of the family. Easy to use and clean. Great design. Love it!
