      I actually have owned this grinder for a few years. It grinds spices very well. The blade is super sharp and creates a very fine grind. When it comes to using it for coffee, it lacks a bit. We use a french press style coffee maker and need our grind to be coarse and even. When using this grinder, we have to use quick pulses and shake the grinder to encourage even distribution of the coffee beans. It's very easy to over grind in this grinder, which creates a very fine grind and not ideal for a french press. If you're using a traditional style coffee pot with a filter, this wouldn't be such an issue because the filter will catch most of the sediment created by the finer grind. One issue we've always had with this grinder is the general mess it creates. The grinds stick to the lid. So once the lid is removed they tend to fall out onto the counter. Overall it's a very reliable grinder. The entire thing is very easy to clean with a quick rinse under the faucet or wipe down with a damp towel. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again if I needed a very simple, easy to use grinder.

      This worked well, but I prefer to use it for spices rather than coffee. It is a little difficult to clean out

      This product is a good grinder, nothing extraordinary, thoug

      Comments about Krups Fast-Touch Coffee Grinder:

      I mainly used this to grind my coffee beans. The only comparison I can have with this grinder is the one built in my Breville expresso machine, which is a conical burr grinder. This Krups uses a metal blade, but the results between the two is similar that the difference is negligible. I also tried the grind to be more coarse (for regular coffee brewing) and again, the difference between the burr and this one is negligible. So, as far as grinding coffee goes, this does the job, but there is nothing extraordinary about this grinder. This grinder is a bit on the noisy side, but that is to be expected. This Krups motor feels solid, and cleaning this thing is easy, I just brush off the residue and most of it comes off.

      Comments about Krups Fast-Touch Coffee Grinder:

      This is a nice coffee grinder. It's WAY faster than my previous grinder - just have to push the button for a few seconds and it's all done! The other nice benefit is the blade sits lower to the bottom, so it gets all the beans going nicely. With my old grinder I had to shake it while grinding, but not the Krups coffee grinder. I kind of want another one just for spices now too.

      Strong little machine!

      Comments about Krups Fast-Touch Coffee Grinder:

      I have never owned a coffee/spice grinder so I don't have much to compare this one to, however, I was impressed with the strength and quickness of this little machine. My first use was with coffee beans and with only a few quick pulses, the coffee was ready to use! I almost ground it up too much! The only issue I had was removing the cover. It's pretty tight to keep anything from getting out during the grinding process so it can be hard to take off when done. I can't wait to try grinding spices to use during cooking! The compact design of the grinder will keep it from taking up too much space sitting on the counter. It's super easy to clean (you just wipe it out) and store. If you can use a coffee/spice grinder, I think this would be a good addition to your kitchen!

      This is a nice compact grinder that does not take much counter space. I have been using this for a couple weeks and it is doing a fine job grounding up my coffee!

      Comments about Krups Fast-Touch Coffee Grinder:

      I have been very impressed with this grinder. So far I have primarily used it to grind my morning coffee. I had been purchasing pre-ground coffee because my last grinder broker and I never got around to replacing it. After using freshly ground coffee again, I don't think I can go back! This has done a great job of grinding my coffee and has also been easy to clean.

      I used the grinder once for flaxseeds, and was equally impressed. It ground them finely enough for me to put into a smoothie, and didn't require much effort.

      The grinder works great, it is a bit loud when using. I think the grinder was very easy to use and has multiple uses.
