The first coffee grinder I ever owned was a KRUPS and it lasted for years. When is finally gave out, I tried another brand and that one lasted only 4 months, so I ordered a new KRUPS and am very happy with it again. It is highly rated by other consumers, and I have had no disappointments at any level. It stows away easily and does the job of grinding my fresh coffee beans every day. I love the angled oval top, which is easier to remove for filling and cleaning, and the unit fits nicely in my grip. I’ve had this one or 2 1/2 years now and it’s given me no problems and is as dependable as my first one. I will always buy a KRUPS grinder grinder if ever i need another one in the distant future. I would recommend this to anyone.
