3.0 out of 5 stars Good grinder but needs care, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VonShef Whole Coffee Bean, Nuts & Spices Grinder - Stainless Steel Blades. 150 Watts
As a coffee grinder this works well and is excellent value for money. However, it has a weak spot, which is presumably why it is being offered so cheaply. Like other grinders of this type there is a microswitch that prevents it from operating when the lid is not on properly. This stops you from accidentally mincing your fingers. The small plastic projection on the lid that presses on the switch is easily broken if the lid is not put on and removed squarely. You then have to insert a small piece of plastic or wire (I used a piece of a cable tie) to wedge the microswitch open permanently. This does not detract very much from safety since the rotating steel grinder is set quite deeply below the lid. You would be 100% safe if you unplugged it whenever you wanted to put a spoon or your fingers inside it. Of course, if you handle the lid with extra care there will be no problems.
