Sandy will need to correct me on specifics, but alev hasholom is derived
from a Hebrew phrase for "May he/she rest in peace" or "may peace be upon
him/her". I have also seen it written Alev Hashalom for men and Aleha
shalom for women. Kind of like some say, after mentioning the name of a
deceased loved on, "God rest his/her soul".http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honorifics_for_the_dead_in_Judaism

not a Cuisinart but a Melitta--I was punchy from all that long-distance
driving, and it affected my typing. But both grinders are equally crummy
pieces of drek).

While it's what I use I must say it doesn't produce a consistent grind

That being said, I use mine every day for my vacuum pot. I'm not likely to
get anything new till this one wears out (it's been grinding daily for 4
years now) because my wife is the frugal sort and just doesn't love coffee
enough to understand that the grind consistency might have anything to do
with the end cup.

Subject: +Cuisinart Burr Grinder.
Does anyone here have any experience with the Cuisinart burr grinder ?
Would it be acceptable for press pot or, perhaps for electric drip? I have
read conflicting reports ("two thumbs Up;" "boo. boulders and sand,"
"acceptable for one's everyday coffee," etc.) I regularly use a Maestro
Classic, and would not change, but just wondering if there is any merit in
this one, say, as an inexpensive gift to my daughter's significant other (I
had given him a nice manual grinder for his birthday-an old Italian one-and
it is now producing metal shavings in his coffee; so I want to replace it
but am on a budget).
