I find that there is no difference between its 9 course to fine settings
Altogether a little too fine for a press but great for drip or an espresso machine
UPDATE 6 months later = used once or maybe twice a day died after 6 to 8 months
Not worth the shipping to get it fixed

It grinds fairly well, but the two-piece plastic hopper for the grounds is awkward and tends to fall apart easily, spraying grounds all over the counter and the machine itself.
Also the dial used to select coarseness can be confusing. 9 is for coarse, 1 is for fine, but there is a left arrow ( <- ) and a right arrow ( -> ) each pointing away from the number, so that if you move the dial all the way to the right, you think you're choosing FINE since the word fine is at the right, but in actuality you're choosing COARSE even though it's on the opposite side. The fine grind is pretty fine, but coarse really isn't, there doesn't seem to be much difference between coarse and fine with this grinder despite your selection.
I regret this purchase.
So, when it did work why was it bad? The receptacle for the grinds won't come out without some force, which spills grinds everywhere. Then, you have to take off the lid for it, which gets grinds everywhere. Finally, it's not well shaped so when you pour it into your coffee maker or french press, it gets grinds everywhere.
I only write reviews when I love or hate products (I know, I should write more), and this one I would NOT recommend.
After 8 months of daily service, this unit no longer grinds beans properly. The finest it will now grind is to split a bean into maybe 2 or 3 pieces.
