Grinds well. Because it's a manual burr grinder, you can easily set the size of your coffee grounds, from coarse to fine (though, I haven't tried grinding it to fine since I use coarse grounds for my French press). The grounded coarse coffee were fairly even, too.
Good design. The hopper where you drop in the coffee beans nicely feeds the beans (using gravity) into the grinding mechanism and from there into the glass jar. The hopper (with the grinding mechanism) can then be washed separately and the glass jar comes with a convenient lid for storing.
Good torque. The grinding handle is easy to turn, albeit the area where you hold down the grinder to keep it steady is a bit too large for my small hands. Still, it's not so tough to turn that you're using too much effort in the morning, especially when you're too sleepy! So, I wouldn't count manually grinding coffee as a workout :(
Easy to clean. The grinder disassembles easily which...
I really like my new Kyocera hand grinder. I wanted to graduate up to a conical burr coffee grinder but was overwhelmed and confused by all of the mixed reviews for most of the electric models. They are also quite expensive, and since I am the only coffee drinker in the house, I couldn't justify spending upwards of $100-$150 dollars (minimum) for just 2 or 3 cups a day. This hand grinder produces a very consistant grind, won't clog like the electric types often do, and is quiet to use, unlike my electric blade grinder which sounds like a jet engine warming up. (That has since been retired to grinding only spices.) Adjusting the grind is easy but is also a little tricky at first and takes some trial and error to get the grind size you want, especially if it's somewhere between very fine (espresso), and coarse (french press). It took me 2 attempts to get it right for my Chemex drip brewer. I put about half a teaspoon of beans into the hopper for a practice run. I love the aroma of the...

The Kyrocera and the Hario Skerton are reportedly the same grinder, just with different labels.
Update: Since I posted this video Kyocera has added a silicone lid and bottom cap to this grinder. Both are very helpful - the lid keeps the beans from bouncing out while you grind and the cup on the bottom helps to hold it firmly on the counter when you grind.
We've been using this hand grinder for about a year and love it more and more all the time. At first we found it somewhat annoying because it seemed to take forever to grind the morning coffee, but now we find that it's a great reminder to sloooow down a little. It's almost like a morning meditation. There aren't any real instructions that come with it, so it took me a frustrating half an hour to figure out how to...
