Perfectly adequate so far for grinding nuts and seeds. Obviously if one's using it for almonds,walnuts or whatever,it can take a little ingenuity to get them down to a powder,as they often start by simply jumping around,and seemingly missing the blades much of the time. I've found the best way around this slight niggle is to fill the air gaps as such with very small seeds such as linseed or sesame seeds,as they don't have a strong flavour anyway. That way everything grinds to a powder,using short bursts,shaking and/ot tapping the machine slightly in between,no problem at all. I don't intend using it for coffee beans,as I already have a DeLonghi grinder that makes very short work of those.

Small and looks good, and seems to do the job ok, but the grinding bowl is fixed in the body of the grinder so you can only clean it by wiping with a damp cloth, anything resembling immersion in water would wreck the electrics. And getting all the bits of old nuts out from under the blades is tricky. Probably would suit someone who only grinds coffee best, where thorough cleaning out is not so vital.

I bought this initially as a cheap grinder to process ingredients for fishing baits. However it turned out to be a much better machine than the price would suggest so mostly use it for coffee beans and spices (and some clandestine bait making, don't tell the misses). It is plenty powerful, gives a good fine grind and is still going strong after regular use for six months.

Item arrived quickly and was well packaged.

Having recently bought a number of packets of coffee beans I realised that I didn't actually own a working coffee grinder!! I went onto a fair few sites to look for one but as usual ended up back on Amazon. I didn't want to pay too much for one as its only me in the household that drinks coffee and I knew I wouldn't be using it every day.

This product arrived the very next day and I used it straight away. Its very easy to use and there is no assembling required. It grinds the beans quickly and effectively and was easy to empty and clean. You can also use this to grind nuts, seeds and spices. The transparent lid is really handy so that you can see how fine your coffee/seeds etc are being ground.

I would recommend this coffee grinder to anyone on a budget

Bought to use for spices - made a couple of batches of seasoned salt with it & it did the job perfectly. Haven't used it for coffee as this wasn't it's intended purpose, but it handled black peppercorns easily, if that of any help. Tip: Use a little paintbrush to 'dust' the inside of the unit, works a treat.

I've used this excellent gadget for quite a while now for grinding coffee beans, and it really is a bargain at the price. It feels sturdy and well-made and has stood the test of regular use for a few months. It makes a good job of grinding beans, delivering fine, regular grounds. It's also easy to clean, which is an added advantage.

It works a treat. I've used it to grind lots of different things which include coffee beans, oatmeal and calendula petals( for soap making) and it grinds exactly as expected. My only gripe with this is that it doesn't come apart for cleaning. As you can't wash it you have to try to get what you can off with a damp cloth or a soft brush or a combination of the two. Feels like a bit of a design flaw so I've taken a star off for that . otherwise it's a good little product

I had been looking for a grinder for crushing my morning breakfast seed hit comprising linseed chi sunflower pumpkin etc , most grinder write ups don't recommend slightly moist seeds because of jamming etc.
This little gem fits into my life perfectly works a treat and is so easy to clean, I suspect it does the same for coffee too.
A few short blasts of a few seconds reduces seeds to a sandy texture Perfect tool for the job.

If you're not keen on shelling out hundreds for one of those oversized fancy espresso grinder kits... give this a shot!

It's an elegantly simple mains-operated grinder that has, so far, done a superb job with coffee beans. It's a little bit smaller than a cafetiere and looks very sleek and professional

It only has one setting ("on") so the consistency you want comes entirely down to how long you use it for. Whilst some might dislike that it doesn't do the thinking for them, I personally prefer this degree of control. It runs as long as you hold the button down (which is built into the lid, so only runs when it's secure - nice touch) which makes it very easy to stop/start and check on as you aim for the ideal consistency. As a rule, I've found it good to use in short bursts and lightly tap the grinder on the worktop between them, just to move everything around and dislodge anything

The only pain is that you cannot remove either the blades or bowl to clean. However, it's quite shallow so exceptionally easy to go over with a kitchen towel / brush (and the blades can be pushed around too) - so this will only really be an issue if you intend to grind anything wet/oily

Other than that, it's been a reliable, cool-looking (and cheaper) solution to fresh coffee

Grinds really well and smooth, but tends to collect quite a lot under the blade, so when using have a spoon or utensil handy to scrape everything out.
