The bi lingual print on the front menu is simply ridiculous. I thought hard about returning this product. It's extremely difficult to read. I have this product on a typical kitchen counter. I have to lift it up so I can get as much light on it as possible to read the operating menu. Then, you have to deal with the two languages. The timer on it is really crummy.
I have never owned a grinder before. This grinder is perfect for me. You set it, add your coffee beans, lock the lid in place, press the start button and it is fully automatic and stops when complete. The grind has been very consistent with no large chunks. Seems like a solid unit and comes with a cleaning brush. I love the fact that the bowl with the blade is removable to empty the contents and for cleaning. I would think it would work just as well for grinding dried herbs and possibly some seeds as well. Very pleased with this purchase!
I bought this because I liked the concept of the removable plates and the two sided plates. Initially the only complaint I had was that there wasn't a way to turn it off, especially if you only wanted to use one side at a time.\n\nAfter a very short time, the grease was ending up inside the appliance and was leaking grease inside my cupboards when it was stored. It also would leak grease onto my counter even if I was cooking pancakes or something completely free of grease. One of the ready lights was bumped into the appliance. I finally threw the appliance away less than a year after buying it.
I have yet to find anything I don't like about this one. It brews the perfect pot of coffee and keeps it hot for hours. I drink coffee all day long and this has come in super handy.\nThe brew select does make a difference! On many other machines that offer a selection on brew strength most come up short and not many people can tell the difference. This one however actually delivers what it claims and you can definitely tell the difference (I prefer the Robust setting)
We used this juicer everyday since we received it. It does a good job with everything we have tried to juice. Only downside is how many parts have to be cleaned but I usually just rinse them out daily then stick them in the dishwasher every so often.
