    Pros: Price; customer service
    Cons: Poor Quality ; faulty pieces

    Summary: I purchased this product with a gift certificate that I had earned online so it was basically free but regardless, I do have some complaints about the performance of this grinder. This is the Fresh Grind Coffee Mill from Proctor-Silex and the ... read more

    Pros: WIFI, Enhanced Voice Dialing, Nice screen, everything you need in a business phone.

    Summary: Features: Bluetooth, IR, WIFI, GSM, UMTS(3G), USB, VOIP, Browser, Nice Screen. Enhanced Voice Dialling: This feature is amazing, does take a little getting used to since it recognizes all the contacts in your address book to dial a call, unlike the ... read more

  • What A Piece Of Garbage

    Apr 19, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's plastic.

    Summary: Oh where do I start? The first thing you will notice with your Proctor-Silex Coffee Grinder is it doesn't hold enough coffee to make a full pot of coffee. But once you start grinding with it, the next little dandy is that once you grind your coffee and ... read more

  • Did the job

    Mar 7, 2005 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: worked
    Cons: the cord winding feature eventually cut the cord

    Summary: My husband came with this grinder when we married, and since I was replacing most of his kitchen stuff with mine, when it came to which grinder to use, I let him keep his. I liked that the cord wound up and didn't look messy on the counter. It died ... read more

  • pretty darn good for the money

    Pros: quiet, grinds coffee beans well, & it's cheap!
    Cons: small capacity, a bit messy, plastic parts break easily

    Summary: For small amounts of coffee (or grains) this is a great grinder for the price. It is much quieter th ... read more

  • One Miserable Coffee Grinder

    Jun 3, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: Small capacity, very messy

    Summary: This is the kind of product you'll pay double to replace once you've used it for a couple of days. What a piece of junk. Problems: 1) Its grinding chamber doesn't hold very much coffee. Barely enough for a french press. Definitely ... read more

  • Spend a little more and get a better unit.

    Pros: It is inexpensive.
    Cons: It works like it is cheap.

    Summary: I actually do not own this grinder, but one of my best friends does. We both make coffee often when we are hanging out, and I use his grinder when I am over at his house. My standard of comparison is an inexpensive Krups grinder that is in the same ... read more

  • Not just coffee!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: small, self-storing cord, inexpensive, versatile
    Cons: none

    Summary: I am not a big coffee drinker but enjoy a cup now and then of gourmet coffee. I do love the smell of freshly ground coffee beans. The main reason I even needed a coffee grinder was so I could grind grains. Having recently gone on ... read more

    Pros: Excellent job for Herbs and Seeds.
    Cord recoils into grinder for storage.
    Good price.
    Cons: Lid easy to wash, but takes care to clean interior.

    Summary: I've had this grinder for over 5 years with complete satisfaction.  I use the grinder for grinding dried herbs - sage, rosemary, etc. and it does a great job.  Mainly I use the grinder each week to grind Flax Seeds and Chai Seeds.  I buy ... read more

  • Don't Waste Your Money

    Pros: it's cheap
    Cons: it's worthless

    Summary: The Proctor-Silex E160B coffee grinder is an inferior product, the worst coffee grinder I have ever used, and a complete waste of money. I purchased this grinder specifically (and exclusively) to grind peppercorns. I used the grinder two or three ... read more

  • Be Aware… The cord that wraps up inside the unit.

    Rated Show
    Pros: Cheap, Works great
    Cons: Bad design on the Retractable cord...

    Summary: We have had the unit for less than a year and the cord is showing exposed bare wire. This is the second unit to do this. This is a shock and fire hazard. The cord wraps back into the unit by self winding, after some time the cord cracks and ... read more

  • Great for Flax Seeds!

    Pros: Flax seed wonder, inexpensive, small unobtrusive size, easy to clean and use
    Cons: Blades might not be up to the task of handling coffee beans?

    Summary: I tried several options for grinding flax seeds - even one by hand sure to bring on carpal tunnel syndrome before I discovered this little gem. I don't drink coffee but would think the light weight of the blades and the small capacity might not stand up ... read more

  • I loved it so much, 2 years later I got one for my parents!

    Pros: Works for years (3 ?), retractable cord, simple use.
    Cons: None, I found and bought the same model for my parents.

    Summary: I've owned this coffee grinder for nearly 3 years now and love it. I have not had any problems with it. To be honest, I do not pull out and/or retract the cord. For me, I leave it out about 7 inches and keep it there. The performance is wonderful and ... read more

  • Not so good....

    Pros: The wind-up cord is great, especially if you put the grinder away frequently.
    Cons: Dull blade. On/Off button doesn't work well.

    Summary: I've had this coffee grinder for about 3 years, so I would say that it performed better for me than for some of the other reviewers here. The only reason it's been around so long is that I'm very stubborn and decided to use the grinder until it refused ... read more

    Pros: Cheap and holds the cord for storing it inside the grinder.
    Cons: none really

    Summary: I bought this Proctor Silex Fresh Grind Coffee Mill E160B because I had heard that grinding your own coffee beans will make a better tasting cup of coffee. That is correct about this grinder. Unlike the other people who have rated the grinder. I have had ... read more

    Pros: It was white retractable cord
    Cons: Difficult to run Sticky top Not large capacity

    Summary: This coffee grinder has me very frustrated! It does not hold enough beans to make a 12 cup coffee pot, it gets the grounds caught in the lid making it difficult to open without yanking it (need I say more about what happened to all the freshly ground ... read more
