I was so excited to try this product. It offered everything I was looking for, hands free operation, removable parts, a larger grinding capacity and quiet operation. I should have realized some things are too good to be true. I ground enough beans for a 12 cup pot of coffee sucessfully. When I tried to grind a second batch of the same quantity, the motor was very loud, didn't grind the beans fully, and finally stopped working and smoke poured out of the back. I immediately unplugged the machine. At $29.88, that was one expensive pot of coffee! Luckily, I still had the box, found the receipt and plan to take this back to the store. I called GE to file a complaint after finding out I was not the only one to have this problem with this product. The Rep told me most people had problems with the lid locking in place with the ground contents still in in the machine. Basically there is just overall quality failure with this product. I'm terribly disappointed in both GE and Wal-mart for continuing to sell an obviously faulty product and for quite a bit more money than most of Wal-mart's other, better quality grinders.
