" ...  Perfect for grinding a small batch of coffee beans or spices  ...  "
comment
" ...  It is easy to get your coffee as fine as you want. ... It is nice that each grinding container has its own blade so your spices dont taste like coffee.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have only used the coffee grinder attachment, but it does a really good job at that.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sorry to say that I let it sit in the box and continued to use my dedicated"Spice" BRAUN as my coffee grinder too.  ...  "

comment
" ...  One of the worst cutting systems I have ever utilized, most of spice ends outside of the canister, messy after opening, hard to clean, possibly works for bigger amount.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The canister that grinds the beans is difficult to twist into the motor grinder, you have to use the brush every time to remove the ground coffee from the canister because it sticks under the blades everytime.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Anything being ground goes all over the place and creates a huge mess. ... The unit itself is extremely hard to clean.  ...  "
comment
" ...  SS cups do not fit smoothly in the holder - the plastic caps also do not fit the SS cup and it gets messy - it’s noisy!  ...  "
comment
" ...  Too messy, too much work and too hard to clean afterwards.  ...  "
comment
" ...  When using the bigger grinding cup the grounds get EVERYWHERE.  ...  "
comment
" ...  With great frequency, the material being milled (such as flax seed or milk thistle seed) often blasts out of the milling vessel, make a mess of half milled seeds in the mechanism of the mill and most often spilled on my kitchen counter upon open the mill.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It doesn't come in direct contact with food, but it's likely that particles are spread during and after the grinding process.  ...  "

" ...  Wasn't obvious to me that I had to put on the little plastic lid for the smaller inserts and I had seeds everywhere till I read the directions and figured it out!  ...  "

comment
" ...  Does a great job with most herb seeds.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We also love to cook, so I was looking for something like this so I could change the bowl to grind spices.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I use the other 2 containers for other spices.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I look for thoughtfully well designed products that do the job before they can take up my counter space, which is precious!  ...  "
comment
" ...  Perfect love the all in one with all my kitchen stuff I don’t have room for a machine that only does one thing and this did the trick being coffee grinder and attachments for spices works great!  ...  "

comment
" ...  The plastic lids for spices is practically useless as they don’t fit snugly.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The mess this thing makes with grinds flying out of the cup is beyond what I thought could be worse case.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Hands down one of those things that’s a good idea with piss poor execution, large canister doesn’t have a lid that fits so anything you grind goes around , this isn’t a coffee grinder for espresso as it’s too inconsistent  ...  "
comment
" ...  The grinder cover doesn’t sit well and is wobbly. ... Falls off the moment you put the grinder in the cupboard. ... You cannot put the cap on and grind, it sits too high.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It was poorly packaged and the lid was jammed. ... Im not sure if that is what made it not fit properly but I didn't like the way the top was wobbly on the grinder.  ...  "
comment
" ...  2) The metal "wings" under the bowls (they latch onto the gears) are made of some base metal that corrodes in the dishwasher. ... 3) The lids of the smaller bowls don't fit tightly enough to keep hard spices from lifting the lid as they are ground--total mess ensues. ... This can be avoided by putting a folded-up paper towel or specially cut foam material between the lid of the bowl and the grinder cover.  ...  "

comment
" ...  the teeth in the gear are rubber/plastic and are frayed already and I have literally had it for 7 weeks.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Something's not right with the design in that it traps ground material at the bottom and then doesn't grind it anymore.  ...  "
