Absolutely inappropriate tool for processing foodMar 20, 2009
As interesting as this grinder looks on the outside, this remains its only positive side. The one I received had a visible defect on the outside so even that decorative function was denied me. But the most important role the product was designed for-to grind edible substances is out of the question. I cannot put anything edible into it, because on the inside it even has traces of rust. There is no way to clean it. When I handle it, my hands smell strongly of metal long afterwards. I don't want to imagine what the coffee will smell of after the grinding. The brass cylinder is shiny on the outside, but chipped inside. The central rod that rotates the grinder is made of plain iron, not of stainless steel and looks and feels rusty. I don't recommend this product for food processing, which is unfortunate because it is very sturdy.

Fine GrindJan 25, 2009
By S. frank
I really like this grinder. I love the feel of the weight, the size is nice and compact, and it's quite the conversation piece. It's a far cry from the electric grinder it's replacing.
The one con about it is how adjustable the grinder is. I can only adjust mine from fine powder down to so fine that it doesn't come out. I've only had it a few days, and the adjustment seems to be loosening a bit as I work it more. It may get opened more, it may not. Would work better if I wasn't using a coffee press.
Overall, it's a great product (so far). The description of grind adjustment just doesn't fit the one I received. I'll be keeping this grinder.

works, but slowOct 04, 2009
By Brian A. Besummer
Got this for turkish coffee, so the grind is correct size, but seems to take forever to grind. Seems to not grab the beans well and many turns are wasted by not grinding as much as it could. Also the adjuster doesn't seem to do much, if i tighten it, it makes the grind finer, but the time to grind is eternal...
It takes about 30 minutes to grind a small turkish pots worth maybe 6 tbs, worthless product...save your money!

The best use for this grinder is a paper weightApr 06, 2009
By T. leininger
after receving the coffee grinder on initial inspection I was disippointed with the quality, their is casting marks that weren't removed in the finishing process and the overall quality was poor. after using the grinder it is only adjustable from super fine to fine and does not go course enough for a french press. It takes about 4 minutes of constant cranking to grind two table spoons of coffee beans. I went back to my electric grinder. it is not worth returning the grinder because it cost's 10.00 dollars to ship it.
