I recieved my Chewy and the Chube a few days ago. It does take me about two minutes to grind up a gram. It chews right through my stickiest strain Gorilla Glue. It comes out light and fluffy, the way I like it. The perfect consistency for the vaporizers that I use most of the time, which are log vapes. It's not loud, it gives off a low hum while grinding. It doesn't look like a grinder either. Maybe looks like a little mini recorder. I haven't torn it a part to clean yet. I have arthritis in my wrists so this grinder makes it easy to get the material ground. I did struggle at first to push in all the wires that are attached to the 9 volt battery. so I could shut it. @Splat told me I didn't need to treat it with kid gloves. I was able to get the door shut eventually. Wishing you good luck with a well made tool for those that need some extra help with grinding or just like an electric grinder. I think it's easy to dump your ground up cannabis by taking the lid off and just turning it on. It flies right out of the grinder through the hole at the top. No need to get a toothpick to dig out your herb. The Chube is a nice traveling container for your flowers. If you need a grinder, it will do that too.
