Neither my husband nor I are coffee drinkers, but we wanted to have something to grind flaxseed for better health, so I purchased the Capresso Cool Grind Blade Grinder for that purpose. As long as I didn't fill the grinding bowl too full, the Capresso grinder did a good job grinding up the seeds. I bought the display since that was the only one in stock, so it didn't come with instructions and I'm not sure the best way to thoroughly clean it (I can't tell that the grinding surfaces/bowl can be separated from the electrical parts). There is a groove at the bottom of the cylinder where you can wrap the electric cord around and store it. This is a great feature because I store in a cupboard and appreciate that the plug is not dangling off the shelf. To operate the grinder, the lid must be on and a lever pushed down on the outside to engage the switch. This helps me feel safe using it.
