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!
It grinds coffee beans, it does it well. No complaints. The cover seals well so there is no mess of coffee grinds left on your counter. If you’re looking to grind just a couple beans at a time, at a reasonable price, that also looks nice, this is it. Feels sturdy, good quality. And I like the color (red).
Gift to my husband. He loves it, he's so impressed that within 10 seconds the full cup was grinded. The longer the thinner. Sometimes you need to maybe check with a spoon the cup to make sure one ground isn't whole but we have no complaints. Its still new we have hoped of it lasting a long time. But time will tell. I recommend
Haven't really used one of these before but I'm fairly happy with it. Not messy and gives some uneven grinding, which I don't mind. I have full control how much and little I grind my beans. However, it didn't come with the spice Shaker lid... I will be contacting Kitchen Aid for a Shaker lid, because that would be awesome to have with a custom mix of spices and shake them all about!
I've had this for a few weeks now and overall find it to be great. It's compact and fits well into my coffee station. The red matched the rest of my kitchen decor. It's functionality is fab! The lid can be a bit wonky as you have to close it just right for it to activate the power but overall I can't complaing too much. Here's hoping it lasts!
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.
