Very "bare bones", but functional
17 May 2018
The product is very simple and minimalistic. The crank rests on top of a protruding axle, it is not affixed to the lid of the grinding chamber. The size of the grind is adjusted by loosening or tightening a plastic cog on the underside of the grinding chamber, it has no indicators of predicted grind type (e.g., fine, coarse, etc.). Grinding is easy and you can produce probably 8 or 9 tablespoons of coffee at a time.
Twp things I don't like:
1) The opening for the grinding chamber is rather small and difficult to pour beans into without a funnel, especially from a large bag or using a large spoon.
2) I wish the product came with an instruction manual to clarify some basic things such as washing procedure, disassembly and reassembly, etc. A backup ceramic burr would also be nice, but for the price you can't really complain.
