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

"I remember my granddaddy grinding coffee in a manual grinder every morning and the smell of that coffee was amazing. Somehow, electric grinders have never held the same nostalgia for me. But, this grinder is perfect and the jar is just a wonderful practical storage solution. Lehman's shipped promptly and the packaging was very secure. Thank you for providing a quality product at a fair price."

"I received this coffee grinder recently and am very pleased with it! It's simplicity itself, with a mason jar (easy to clean!) attached to a hand grinder which really requires minimal effort. The exact coarseness of the grind is easily achieved by turning the sprocket up or down. This is truly an ingenious gadget--and is going at a much more reasonable price than other, fancier grinders out there. I even checked out used and vintage manual grinders. This hopper was cheaper and minus the quirks or possible damages. I'm very happy with this purchase!! "

"We have an open hopper model, which I was skeptical of, but it works just fine, I can grind some coffee quickly without too much hassle. It's taken a little adjustment doing it by hand, but totally worth the effort!"

"Love love this grinder. While my electric grinder does a wonderful job, its of no value if the power goes out and it is extremely noisy! I purchased this grinder to take on camping trips, but I may just keep it at home and give the electric one to good will. It is quiet, cost effective and a labor of love to use. The canning jar does hold enough for 3 pots of coffee, and the hopper alone will hold enough to grind enough coffee for a 12 cup pot of coffee. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the pleasures of extremely fresh coffee. Others have said that the jar is somewhat awkward to hold and grind and that is true. That being the only draw-back, what a pleasure to add to my kitchen."

"The rating goes for the manufacturer's phone support, too. T grind was set too fine and I couldn't manage to follow the (very clear) directions for adjusting it. My fingers weren't strong enough. I called the number on the product with my problem. The rep was able to tell me exactly what to do to make adjustment easier, and assured me he would send a replacement spring if I messed it up! I didn't need the new spring, the grind is now perfect, and I love the grinder. This is the closed-top grinder with the cast iron burr. Don't know how the ceramic one is. Thanks, Marty Cromme"

"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!)"

"I bought the canning jar coffee grinder so that when the power went out, I could still grind my beans and enjoy my morning coffee. Of course, I had to try it out right away. I had no idea that the way a bean is ground could so profoundly affect the flavor. The blades on my electric grinder actually chop the bean where as the grinder actually grinds the beans and releases more of the oils. My coffee was much more delicious than I had ever enjoyed and now I'm hand grinding my beans every morning. I love this grinder!"

"I love this coffee grinder for it's charm, uniformly fine grind, and the fact that I don't have to worry about grinding my coffee if the power ever goes out! But no matter how hard I try, I can't pull the locking washing up against the spring far enough to turn the threaded wheel to make a courser grind. And I need a courser grind to use my Vietnamese phin. Also, I spill beans everywhere trying to load the hopper. The door is too small. Mine does have a sliding door, but I found that it isn't necessary and tends to get stuck in the open position and takes a lot of force to close it. So over all, it's charming, but not at all practical. "

"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."

"This is OK if you are strong, but the small size and therefore short arm don't give enough mechanical advantage for me. The reviewer tip on setting it on a wet cloth was helpful - I used a silicone hot pad. I found it easier to use one of those gardening gloves that has a non-slip coating on my left hand to steady the unit while I cranked with my right. The glove stripped the finish off the rim of the grinder though. I only used a few beans at a time too. I had to use the back and forth method for whole beans, rather than the continuous circular motion. The grinder worked great at grinding pre-ground coffee that was ground for perk and grinding it to fine drip grind, here I could grind continuously, but grinding whole beans is a trial for me."

"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."
