    Short Life

    Posted
    gadgetnc

    This is the only grinder I have ever owned so I can't compare to other models. My wife bought 2 of them. She gave one as a gift that was used very little the 1st year but was re-gifted to us when our 1st one broke. Both have died in just over 2 1/2 years. Motor runs, blades don't turn. Pros: Lots of variable grinds to choose from. Large hopper holds 1/2 lb of beans. Cons: I think it's noisy but can't compare to others. Broke too quick. Coffee powder sticks to the side across from where it comes out and the lid. Very annoying and messy. Grind bin is hard to reset in grinder. Overall, I would pass on this one. I'm hoping there is something better.

    OK, but short life

    I would expect a $60 grinder to last longer than 2 years. My grinder died this morning, it just died. I suspect that it is a component on the circuit board. I also found that the plastic around the blade chamber was missing some material so I have been drinking plastic laced coffee. I bought a friend the same one for a present and hers lasted about 6 months before it died just like mine. And I believed Cuisinart to be a good name.

    Noisy and Powders the grounds instead of crushing

    Posted

    I have a Proctor Silex Blade Grinder that does a nice job of chopping up the Coffee Beans with not much noise and very little dust. I thought the Burr Grinder would be gentler and quieter but it is very loud and it produces a lot of fine dust. The dust piles up on the inside of the Grounds Receptacle on the back, top side which is just opposite the exit from the Burr Mechanism. This means the ground beans are exiting at 90mph indicating that instead of "crushing" the beans the Burrs must be rotating at extreme speeds and are just destroying the beans.

    A step above a blade grinder

    I was looking for a burr grinder for whole coffee beans. You get what you pay for. This is a step up from a blade grider, but still doesn't give the most uniform grinds when grinding at the most course setting. I would have been nice to have an off button instead of sliding the cups amount to off to turn the machine off. It is not too loud either.

    First off I say that I'm very happy and I like what it produces that said I do not like the mess that it makes the hopper sometimes clogs up and the reservoir is a poorly designed the receiver is messy but the unit is effective so if you don't mind a little coffee dust mess this thing is for you.. we give it a Solid 4 out of 5 stars if you were not for the messy Reservoir it would get five stars

    I purchased the Cuisinart specifically to grind Vietnamese coffee. However, the high oil levels in coffee from Vietnam results in plugging if more than a few beans are ground at a time. Definitely the reservoir cannot be filled above 1/8 of a cup. Trying to grind multiple small batches results in overheating and the unit shutting itself down.

    Amazingly Simple To Use

    I'd put this burr grinder up against any of the more expensive ones. It's simple to use, very reliable and as easy/difficult to clean as any other I've owned. There is a switch on the bottom bin slide that helps lock it into place. No risk of coffee dust shooting everywhere. I'd recommend this to any coffee lover out there.

    I like this grinder, decent price, works well, have only had for a month but it seems like a well made sturdy product that should last a long time, I especially like the number of cups selector with auto shut off, you don't have to hold the button down the whole time. I like it so far. Makes good coffee grinds.

    I have had this grnder for at least 8 years and it works well. I like the variable grind. Unlike some other reviewers mine has been very reliable. I have used it almost every day for those 8 years. It is a little messy but that is a small price to pay.

    I had some doubts with the low price of this grinder but it has so far exceeded expectations. I only use it fir coffee so i cannot vouch for grinding herbs or anything else though.

    I ordered the Cuisinart Supreme Grind DBM-8 automatic burr mill coffee grinder 3 or 4 years ago. I use it about once a month. It stopped working yesterday. From reading other reviews this is a common problem with this grinder. I would be happy with a hand turn burr grinder.

    I purchased this about 12 months ago - perhaps less. Used it about one time a week. Last week it failed. Just will not operate at all. Had a propeller type grinder (and still have it) which I used for years. Cannot recommend this product.

    Only complaint is that it’s hard to clean. A little hard to see the amount of grinds in the grind area. Other than that, a great product for the money.

    This is the perfect grinder for someone who loves to make coffee at home. It is a burr grinder which has a large but simple variable grind control as well as a switch for setting number of cups. It stores an entire bag of coffee beans. Highly recommended

    Even though, we are new to coffee grinding...we are very pleased with our purchase so far. This product is a very good quality coffee grinder and we hope to have it for years to come.

    I've noticed the grinder occasionally grinding air because the coffee beans aren't dropping, but it doesn't happen too often. The grind is good and makes much better coffee than my old blade grinder.

    The moment you take this grinder out of the box, you know you've made the right choice. My favorite part is that you can change how coarse or how fine you want the beans to be ground.

    We may have had this model for at least 5 years and never had a problem with it. We use it at least 5 times a week. It is a great product.
