OPEN HOPPER CANNING JAR COFFEE GRINDER DESCRIPTION
"It grinds much better than my electric coffee bean (chopper). It has a much more consistent size grind than an electric whirl blade chopper. The coffee also does not stick to the side of the jar like an electric chopper. It takes just a little longer but is worth the effort." --Stan

"This grinder is perfect and the jar is just a wonderful practical storage solution." --SBL

"Attractive, quiet, and effective describes this grinder. The hopper opening seems small, but will hold enough beans for a single 12 cup pot of medium to strong coffee. The small Mason jar holds roughly enough for three pots worth of ground beans. On average it takes me about 2 ½ to 3 minutes to grind enough beans to make a pot of coffee without breaking a sweat. There is very little noise so I don’t wake up the other coffee drinkers before enjoying that first cup alone. While the jar and/or grinding mechanism are somewhat difficult to hold/grip, I find that placing the jar on a damp tea towel or wash rag on the counter holds it enough for me to get the job done. After using this grinder for the last three months, I’ve decided not to replace my broken electric grinder."

"This will in no way replace the CONVENIENCE of an electric grinder, but what it lacks in convenience it more than makes up for in charm, quality, and results. If you're someone who needs to make constant adjustments to the coarseness of the grind, you might get a bit frustrated since it's hard to be precise in setting a level until you've already started to grind the beans. The opening in the top is a bit small, but -- with a little practice -- you can dump the beans right in."

"We bought this grinder as a quiet alternative to our noisy electric one. The opening to load it could be bigger, but overall I'm quite happy with it. Found it's easier to operate by holding it against my hip with one hand and turning the crank with the other."

"The opening for the beans is much too small. It should be large enough to put the beans in with a coffee scoop, but you really need a funnel. Also, the grind adjustment is very difficult to work -- you need to press down the spring with one finger and turn the adjustment with the rest of your fingers. They should substitute the mason jar for the cheap wood box on the larger, better grinder. That would be ideal."

"I use this every morning to grind my jumbo cup of coffee. It works good, looks nice, and gives me a little morning wake up workout. I'm glad I got this one instead of the other types. It's the best and makes the best coffee for miles around."

"Our electric grinder broke; ordered parts & this hand grinder for emergencys. The hand grinder is much nicer than I thought it would be. Makes perfect grounds, takes a little effort but well worth it."

"We've had this coffee grinder for a few months now and really like it. The hopper can be a bit awkward to get beans into & you do need to place the jar on a non-slip surface while turning the handle as the glass jar slips easily. Other than that we've been pleased with this purchase."

"My wife and I have been using this grinder for about a month now. It works very well. It is quite attractive on the counter, and best of all it is nearly silent when grinding coffee (except for the creaking of my old bones..) It's easy to adjust the grind and the locking nut keeps the setting where you put it. At last, we can grind FRESH coffee for brewing any time of day without waking the entire household. It even came with a little jar that holds enough grinds for a couple of large pots. (or one REALLY STRONG cup of Joe!)"
