This is a real vintage Krups Coffee grinder that has NOT been painted and is still a great white! Decals have already been applied though the "fusion" decal has been applied in the wrong direction but it takes no time to peel off the existing one and you can purchase a replacement for a couple of bucks. And yes, it still works great as a grinder. It hasn't been modified in any way. You'll be hard pressed to find a white, unpainted one in this condition.
