Perfect for my needs! I like the look of it on the wall and LOVE the way its powerful magnets keep the knives safe and well organized. I do wish it was a little thicker so it didn't need to be mounted to high for the knives to clear the raised edge of the countertop, though.

This grinder lives up to its promise of no static, every ground pours out cleanly. This replaces my previous burr grinder that I loved the coffee it made, but hated the mess. My only negative to list is that I have to manually set the timer each use. I still love this grinder, with its one fault.

It doesn't replace my $50 paring knife, but it is a great value for a good knive that does the job! I got two to have when I need to have extras in the kitchen.
