MUCH better than my electric grinder,
This review is from: Coffee Mill Italian Design (Kitchen & Home)
After a disastrous experience with an electric grinder received as a present (see other reviews) I was left with a load of beans and no grinder. If I had not had all of those beans I'd have gone back to just using ground coffee. I then bought a simple twin bladed electric thing but was not happy with it, there was no way to control the fineness of the grind. After hunting through loads and loads of reviews I liked the sound of this grinder and bought one. It has exceeded all my hopes and I'm now settled with a grinder I feel will last a lifetime.
As others have mentioned it is extremely robust and well made. It did not take me long to adjust the grind to my requirement (I use an Aeropress Coffee Maker)and there is something quite satisfying in grinding the beans by hand just when you need them.
One other very good point, the shape of the grinder makes it very easy to grip in use and the non-slip base is also a great help. All in all, a perfect 5 stars, and thanks to the original reviewers who pointed me to it.
