Nice grinder, but not all of the beans are ground. I've tried all different ways to correct this, but unground beans are still on top of the brewed grounds.
After grinding the beans I add some cinnamon and grind a second or two longer - that's why the grounds in the pic have brown in them, fyi.
I was in need of s coffee bean grinder but really never looked for one. I was in Best Buy and happened to see this one and bought it. The price was good and the brand has an excellent reputation. Upon using it I was very pleased and knew I made a good purchase. It is simple but extremely well made. It does and excellent job!
On a recent trip to the Balcones Distillery in Waco, I picked up a bag of their coffee, not knowing that the beans were not ground until I returned home. Then, while shopping at HEB, I found a bag of their San Antonio blend in the clearance corner. I grabbed it and again, did not find out the beans were unground until much later. Time to get a coffee grinder. I searched the Internet for them and checked a few stores, but eventually ended up at Best Buy after reading the reviews on this one and seeing that the store nearest to me had one left.
Reading the instructions before use is a must with this product. I managed to grind most of the beans. The metal bowl is graduated and after filling it with beans, did not hold the top down long enough, plus the grounds tended to clump in some areas. This was alleviated by shaking the entire grounder while grinding and watching the beans get pulverized.
I have not had any issues since. This is a great product and my wife, although does not drink coffee, was happy for the color as it matches the other kitchen appliances and paint job.
First of all, this product is so cute and beautiful to look at, I love the red color and I love how easy it is to grab and use! It is so efficient to even take for a travel if I want a freshly ground cup of coffee. It stores easily because of its small size. It is perfect not only for grinding my fresh coffee beans, but also, when I am baking during the holidays, it makes the best spice grinder! I actually plan to buy a second one, so that I can dedicate one just for spices! I bought this one on sale, the deal was a steal! It is all American-made, which means it will last you forever if you treat it well.
Works great !! Replaced and older model that died after many years of faithful service. My only complaint is that it is sometimes hard to get the ground coffee out of the container (have to scrape it out). I also recommend you don't fill the grinder more than half full with unground beans - you get a better, more uniform grind.
A:AnswerI've found that to get an even grind, you have to grind the coffee for a bit, shake up the partially ground coffee in the grinder and repeat the process until you get the level of even grind you desire. This is the only way I personally have been able to get an even grind. It's not annoying or problematic to me; it just forces you to be an active participant in the grinding process.
A:AnswerHi Haifar, The 120 volt (U.S.) appliances are not compatible with 220/240 volt requirements of other countries (as well as vice versa).
What many consumers are not aware of is the potential danger that differences in cycles/second can create. Where in the United States electricity is delivered at 60 Hertz (Hz), most other countries deliver the electricity at 50 Hz. Running 60 Hz appliances in a 50 Hz environment forces the motor in your appliance to run at a slower speed, and can potentially cause immediate motor or operational failure. Not only is this failure not covered by any manufacturer's warranty, but has been known to result in electrical shortages and/or fires.
Additionally, KitchenAid does not recommend the use of a transformer for any KitchenAid countertop appliance. Doing so could cause damage to your appliance or the home electrical system, as noted above.
In order to take advantage of a full warranty, we encourage our customers to purchase KitchenAid products from their international country of residence. By purchasing a unit in the appropriate country, one may pay slightly more, but will have a 1-3 year warranty (depending on the country), along with available service.
