Well it works well enough. Been using it an entire week now. The manual tells you the wrong timing for the grind though. I have to on average run it for 30% longer than the manual says. As well when you want a full 12 cup pot you need to fill it with beans. Well it will just NOT grind it all the way if you do this and will leave big bits here and there. So you need to do it in 2 batches. But it was normally $19 and I got it for $16 so it was all good. I will go ahead and recommend this product. At this price it's more than likely not going to live long, but it is replaceable.
