I purchased this coffee grinder over 15 years ago and it still works great. Only thing is the push pin broke to activate the grinder when the lid accidently dropped. Although We still used it by inserting a poker to start the machine. I looked everywhere for a replacement and could not find one anywhere. I ended up purchasing 3 different coffee grinders, 1 broke within 10 days, another was way too loud, and the other had too small of a cup. All 3 I returned. When I finally found the same coffee grinder I was so excited. Finally I have my coffee grinder back. I love this grinder. It has the perfect size cup to grind a full 12 cups of coffee. (We love strong coffee) Don't even need to measure. Still have the old one as a back up. Best thing I ever bought, last forever. Like the energizer bunny, We love it.
