This is the cutest little grinder. Looks nice on the counter and doesn't take up a lot of space. I use it only for grinding flax seeds and sesame seeds to put in protein shakes, and it does an outstanding job of grinding the seeds to powder, evenly, without leaving a bunch of unground seeds like my previous coffee grinder did. Also, I have not had any ground powder residue come out onto the counter when grinding; it has all stayed inside the jar and there was nothing to wipe up. I have to work with the unit to get all the powder out, though. Seeds are a little sticky, so I remove the jar, open the flap, and pour most of it out the pour spout. What is left inside and sticking to the sides, I have to remove the lid, use the manual "cleaning system" to move the remainder off the sides, pour out again, and repeat this about 2 more times to get most of the powder out. Cleanup is really easy if I immediately rinse out the jar and lid, then swipe a dishrag through the inside in soapy water. The dishrag has to move the "cleaning system" around in a circle while swiping the sides, or else you can't get underneath the "cleaning system" blades to get residue out. You really can't ever get "underneath" the blades, though. I am concerned about the long-term durability of the jar and lid. The grinder part with the motor will probably be fine, but the plastic jar and lid are extremely cheap and shoddily-made and look like the thin plastic on either would break extremely easily. Also, when putting the lid on the jar, or the jar onto the grinder, there are hang-ups where you have to kind of move the piece back and forth a little to "work" it into place. This also contributes to my concern of the longevity of these pieces. Overall, I think the price was really high for the cheapness of the quality, but there isn't a lot to choose from out there right now on quality-made grinders! This is probably one of the better ones right now, without paying a huge sum of money.
