Not Worth The Price
My thought to purchasing this was to eliminate time to set my coffee up for AM brew. Nice thought, needs to improve. I squeeze as instructed, not even half dispenses, squeeze again, a little more, again a huge amount comes out, toss grounds back into container and try again.Sometimes, it feels like it jams, or wants to jam. I have to use my finger to move the wheel filled with grounds over enough to dump into my filter. I have not seen this dispense 1 TBS at a time as it states. I've used this for two weeks. Does not matter regular grind, fine grind it always dispensed in the same manner. I'm stuck with this for now, I will not be purchasing again. Stores coffee nicely though, in air tight clear cylinder.Maybe I got a defective one, I really don't think so. Wheel turns, squeezes smoothly and easily when empty......plastic parts.

Tidy Coffee Storage
If you value the quality of your ground coffee, this is a perfect solution. The containers keeps ~3/4 pounds of coffee in an airtight container and truly preserves the grinds, dispensing correct amount in measured aliquots. Like almost everything else, it does not last forever. The life span appears to be about 12-18 months. When the product is in its death throws, it no longer dispenses coffee appropriately and eventually the "hand pump" breaks. I am on my third coffee dispenser. That being said, I would gladly purchase another when this one breaks!!!

This is my favorate thing in the kitchen. I have used this dispenser for years and cannot do without it. I take one camping, on vacation, have one at work and have bought one for my 9 children for their homes. I had one that had worn out as I drink coffee all day and night and was devistated. I have a new one and 3 others in storage so I will not have to do with out it again. Worth every peney.

Love this for two reasons; I always get the same amount every time I French Press my coffee, and it keeps the coffee fresh longer because of the seals in the lid. Amazingly handy. Was really sorry to see they were no longer carrying them in the store as after I got one for Christmas, I ended up getting 5 friends one because they loved it so much!
