I had one for 2 years, I am very happy with it; I decided to give one to my son has a gift a year ago; it fails 11 months later, I contact Bodum N.-A.; they confirm a 2 years warranty and asked me all necessary info for repair or replacement. after I send the requested, I never heard from them. If you contact them by mail, you have an automated answer: ''we will come back to you within 3 working days''. As of yet, no answer, 5 weeks after first contact.

First off, I'm only using this grinder for drip coffee and it works great...when it works.

I've been getting on-and-off problems with the timer not working as expected ever since we purchased this 6 months ago. Occasionally, the grinder would stop before it reached the time it was set to. Playing with the coarseness of the grind seems to help a little, but it still stops prematurely from time to time.

Trying different beans and ensuring the grinder did not have any loose grind inside it does not seem to affect this problem.

For the moment, I've been living with the coarseness setting at maximum and setting the grind duration to the minimum setting.

I'm not quite sure who to talk to about getting it serviced, so I figured I might as well write a review.

It worked great for about 6 months, when the red button on top that starts the grinding broke. Very inconvenient, now we use a tooth pick to start it, and you don't always hit the right spot, can take minutes to get it. It is a cheap product.

I gave this as gift to a friend. He reported to me that the grinder failed right at the warranty expiration date. Too bad. It apparently worked well … when it worked.

Maybe we got some lemons but we went through two of these in as many months. The first one the glass container broke while removing it from the packaging for the very first time. The second one, while switching from expresso to french press grind a tiny plastic piece snapped off on the inside and it never worked again.

Doesn't work on the espresso setting with whole beans. They get stuck. What I had to do is use the coarse grind first then run the grounds through the machine again to get the espresso grind to work. This method works but the machine heats up quick and it becomes messy transferring the grinds.

Quite a good "beginner" grinder. Creates a bit of mess: coffee grinds seem to end up on the counter despite the anti static claims. Mine just broke down after 7 months of about 4 15 second grinds a day, which is a shame.

The grinder is fine, it works, but it broke down after 1.5 year of use. Buy a more reliable product and save your money.

The bottom of the glass container broke just by sliding the container in and out of the grinder on a regular basis. I did not damage the container bottom with a spoon and I have cleaned the container only twice since I got the machine and not in the dishwasher machine. Other major inconvenient: when you move the container in and out, static electricity will create a small mess every single time.

What are the positives? You can fill the top part with beans once a week if you are alone drinking coffee and you'll have freshly ground coffee every day if you wish. Oh and I forget: it grinds coffee well. Not worth the price I paid for it.

The replacement container has been out of stock at Bodum for a while. I would like to pay for another container. Glass is not covered by my 1-year warranty. The glass is amazingly thin, it's surprising how long it held up, since I have had the machine for about 6 months. I did not know how thin it was till I held a piece of the broken glass in my hand.
