Rated 3 out of 5 by MoeHartman Okay for the price, but not the best
As an habitual coffee drinker who grinds his own beans, a coffee grinder is truly an essential appliance. I bought this to replace a model by another brand that no longer worked. It was on sale, and I figured it would be about the same. Initially, I had a model that didn't work, but I was able to exchange it in a store. I am satisfied with how the grinding works, but unlike other grinders I have used, the bowl is molded to the machine. Not being able to detach the bowl makes it difficult to transport the coffee to my french press or coffee maker, and I usually end up dropping some of the coffee in the process. It also makes it a bit more difficult to clean the bowl. I'd prefer to clean the bowl in the sink without having to move the whole grinder. I suppose there is no danger unless it is plugged in, but it still feels awkward to me. Between the non-detachable bowl and the broken model that I originally had, I would really recommend looking for something different, although it does more or less get the job done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sunflower62 Very unsatisfied with this product
I have other products by Cuisinart like the can opener & ice cream machine and they were very nice quality. But the first one came with a cracked top on it....so took that back and reordered a second one. This one looked like it was going to be okay as I looked in the box. it came out together and looked fine until I went to pick it up to take to the kitchen and the whole bottom fell out. I couldn't believe my eyes. I never made it to my kitchen with my new coffee grinder. So returned that one and decided not to try for a third one. I don't know what the problem is but just don't want to try again and have to drive 18 miles to return a third one. DO NOT FEEL IT IS WORTH THE MONEY FOR THIS PRODUCT.

Rated 2 out of 5 by alycorn25 bottom of the line grinder
I didn't read the description to see if it had a detachable chamber to pour the grinds into my coffee maker. It doesn't, so I returned it.
Also, the box looked like it rolled in the delivery truck a few times. Very tattered up. I was concerned I wouldn't be able to return it.

After receiving the grinder broken, I returned it to my nearest store. They were very friendly and took the broken grinder back for credit with no problem. I then purchased a new, working grinder in store and brought it home. Have only used it once, but so far, my expectations have been met.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DKGgirl Nice grinder
Works as expected. Used mostly for spices so I keep my other one for coffee.. I like my [other brand] better, but for the price, this is a nice grinder.
