I like this machine very much! I use it to grind coffee beans and spices. I even used it to blend vegetables for a curry! It is very simple to use and to clean (just put it in the dishwasher, washing it by hand it might be difficult as the blades are in the way). It is small. I ground a 250-grams of coffee beans in six goes. The container (being metal conducts heat well) which means it gets hot quickly so watch your hands when using it and also have little breaks for it to cool down. I don't mind this problem very much because I think it is the metal container (em induction) that makes it so simple to use it.
