Useful grinder but plastic componentry not build to last
on 5 April 2012
I've had this Grinder for 5 months and it has served me well until now. I have used it nearly everyday for coffee and spices.
The Good - Detachable grinding head, easy to clean, compact, useful spice attachment for small amounts of spices. It grinds hard spices like cinnamon and nutmeg relatively well. It grinds sea salt ok but you need to give it a bit of a shake to avoid it sticking.
The Bad - The plastic this unit is constructed with is not engineered to stand the test of time and durability. At the time of writing, the plastic shell around the grinder unit is severely cracked, as is the plastic on both lid and grinder head - there are stress cracks all over them and the grinder head has finally started falling apart due to this and now I must return it to the supplier and try another product.
In summary, this grinder is probably fine for occasional use with coffee beans and soft spices, but for more demanding use it will not last due to the under-engineered plastic. It's a shame really because in practice this unit performs well.
