Grind evenness is ok for a blade grinder but it doesn’t come close to even cheapest burr grinders. If you have owned burr grinder it’s hard to imagine you will be satisfied by how this grinder grinds. Compared to other blade grinders there are models who grind more consistently but also plenty of models who do worse hence why grind is just ok for a blade grinder. There are large chunks in any grind setting which is a let down.
It’s kinda loud during grinding process and the motor sounds like it’s struggling or something which might indicate that it won’t last long.
