Wow. What a piece of junk. I just received this yesterday and used it for the first time this morning. It broke before I was done grinding 2 tablespoons of coffee beans. Where do I start? The nut and bolt did not fit quite right when attaching the handle - i had to wiggle it constantly while turning it to get it to tighten or loosen. You have to do this because for one it comes disassembled and secondly- that is how you adjust the grind size. This should probably work a little more smoothly. Once I figured that out and got a grind size I liked I started using it. I got about a quarter of the hopper ground before the ceramic teeth came off centre and pulled to one side- making it impossible to turn. So I took it apart again- this time I pulled the entire unit apart to find that the ceramic where it attaches to the hopper had broken. Please see photo. I also noticed quite a lot of metal filings on my cutting board where I shook it out prior to taking it apart. I had washed it after I unboxed it so this definitely happened during operation. Has anybody else had such a brutal experience with this product? I know it was cheap- but I was hoping to at least get a few uses out of it.
Looking at the reviews on Amazon show almost half of the reviewers experiencing the misalignment issue.
Same thing happened to me, cogs started chipping and breaking each other about 5 uses in. I love the concept/look of it. But it is absolute garbage unfortunately.
