Very good grinder if you have patience
Posted by: mruniv5 from: on
I thought twice before buying this grinder because of the mixed reviews. I ended up using my rewards points toward buying it so the grinder was practically free for me. So for free, I decided to get this grinder. At first when I tried it, it worked awesome. It grinded the coffee beans without a problem. It is convenient to load the bean holder (bowl) on top and not worry about filling it up every time I need to grind coffee beans. After about five uses, the grinder didn't grind because the beans were not coming down from the bowl. I poked the bottom of the bowl with a spoon to try to remove any jammed beans that were not allowing the beans to flow freely to the grinder. That seemed to fix the problem until the same thing happened again after another three uses. I got frustrated and wanted to throw the grinder as far as I could for being a piece of junk. After I calmed down with the help of a few Coronas, I got happy and gave the grinder another chance. I unscrewed the bowl (You have to screw on the bowl when setting it up for the first time) and removed a few beans that were on the grinding teeth. I gave the grinding teeth a good once over brushing with the small brush that comes with the grinder. After that, the grinder worked perfectly every time since.
It is convenient to set the dial at the amount of coffee you want to grind so that you can place the ground coffee immediately in your coffee machine and have fresh coffee. The grinder only grinds the amount you set for it to grind and automatically turns off once it reaches that amount. This was the selling point for me. You don't have to press a button several times to grind your coffee to your liking, like with other grinders. This machine grinds the amount you want and at the size you want your coffee to be grinded in one press of a button.
The blue light at the dial to measure how many cups you want to grind, is a little brighter than I would like but, it is not too bright to the point of annoying me. You do have to brush out some of the coffee from the container it falls to after you grind your coffee. It does spill a little coffee if you are not careful pouring the ground coffee to your coffee machine.
I have decided to keep the grinder as I found the pros to outweigh the cons. I have owned this grinder for one month and have not had any problems since the initial ones. Hopefully it does not break down before the warranty is over. I definitely recommend giving this grinder a chance if you are patient. If you are not, then maybe this grinder is not for you.

Excellent value for the money. I had one for 3 years, but something fell on it and it broke. Bought a second because of how much I liked it. Great for the price. Hard to get a burr grinder of value for the price, but this one is. Doesn't grind fine enough for espresso, but great for Drip, Perked, or even Turkish.

Cheap Price, Cheap Quality
Posted by: Bullitt from: on
This is a wheel burr grinder, which is less efficient and less consistent than a conical burr grinder. I bought it as a budget option, and it lasted about 5 months before the switch broke and it would not stay on. The mill was clogged, so I cleaned it out and it still did not work. The hopper is a very cheap plastic that broke on me with very minor force. When you grind, the wheel burr plates are very inefficient and it kicks around the beans in the hopper and does a poor job at feeding the beans into the plates. The plates will heat up, and heat up the grounds, which adversely affects the flavor. The plates are also very loud, making this an extremely loud grinder. This is a poor grinder overall.
Invest in a higher quality grinder like a Bodum or Capresso conical burr grinder. They're much quieter, slower speed, low/no heat, and much more reliable.

Good price for burr grinder
Posted by: jslayny from: Albany, NY on
Was looking to try using a french press but I didn't want to pay a lot for a burr grinder until I knew I liked making coffee that way so this was a great way to try it out.

Great product for price
Posted by: batusername from: on
There are 2 different kinds of grinders. The bad kind (blade), and the good kind (burr).
This one ensures a good, consistent size of the grounds because it's a burr grinder. One of the cheapest. Go with this one.

Great Burr Mill Grinder for a Great Price
Posted by: WannabeBarista from: on
I recently started getting into "Artisan" Coffee and Pour-over coffee in particular. Which calls for your coffee to be of a certain grind consistency which you can't really get with pre-ground coffee. I bought this one in particular because my Mr. Coffee blade grinder wasn't cutting it for the quality and consistency I wanted in my coffee grounds (I essentially exchanged it or this one). Most MANUAL burr coffee grinders will run you the about the same price as this guy and the grinder's you'll see online and in most artisan coffee bars by the die hard coffee fiends are on the higher end ($100-200) which i wasn't about to pay. This grinder definitely does the trick and the ground quality is great! Also it's not much bigger than my old blade grinder on my counter. So if you want a decent burr mill grinder without dishing out a lot of money. This is definitely a top contender.

Good job grinding beans.
Posted by: CharlyJ from: on
Does good job grinding beans for different types of coffee makers. Machine is a little large. Can be a little messy until you get the hang of emptying the ground beans.

Needed something to grind flax seeds. The Best Buy salesman recommended this unit - and it saved us money over the unit we intended to buy,
