Rated 5 out of 5Â by StapeGirl Wow! Didn't know coffee could be so good!
I had to cut back on my Diet Coke consumption, so decided to give coffee a try and be a normal morning adult. Problem was, I didn't like the coffee from our drip coffee maker. I had a french press stashed away and gave that a try with coffee ground in a cheap metal chopper type grinder and didn't love it. After some research, decided to give a burr grinder a try and Oh My, is this coffee yummy!!! For the french press, I use the grinder on the most course setting and all of the flavor and texture and oily fabulousness is in my cup of coffee now. It's easy to use, easy to clean (I clean all leftover coffee residue daily with the provided cleaning brush) and has a very small footprint in my kitchen. I absolutely love it!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ilikecoffee It's the best grinder I have owned.
I have owned several coffee grinders in the last 10 years, and this one is by far the best. The slower speed and the conical rather than flat burrs grinds my coffee with a consistant size, and with almost no powdery residue. There is also much less static buildup in the plastic cup. The coffee beans feed into the grinder without hanging up at times which was a problem with my other grinders.
I clean the grinder after each use, but I find that is easier than with my old grinders. It does take some effort, but I have always cleaned my grinders after each use. If you don't there will be a teaspoon or so of stale coffee that will come out before the fresh ground coffee. I always grind about 10 cups worth and put it in the fridge in an air tight jar. It always stays fresh.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by jljljl Does a fine job
This is a powerful burr grinder that does a fine job. It was confusing to assemble and get started, but once I got past that, I liked it. Be sure to slow down and really read the directions as to not damage the grinder! At first, I thought the dial was for fineness settings, but it is actually a timer. This is probably to make sure you don't overfill the collection bin. You adjust the fineness by turning the clear bowl on top that holds the beans to be ground. I am happy with the purchase.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by mamamur for the price I would like a few features
definitely read the instructions. I am still working on figuring out the timer for the perfect amount of coffee grounds. If there was a feature that I miss from my old grinder it is that. I like to be able to grind my coffee and dump it in the filter the same amount everytime. Not quite mastered that yet. The instructions say to clean out after use and this makes having the hopper to hold 1/2 lb of coffee useless. So far I just clean frequently. Clear top on hopper has lead to a few spills especiallly early morning and not awake when refilling beans, you think its open and...not. Beans everywhere! But that is more operator error! It is just hard to see the lid. But it hasn't gotten stuck during grinding and it is quieter than my old grinder. Maybe a little overpriced but I'm happy with it.(just not estatic)
