Excerpt: The grinder worked without incident for about a week and then it started. The machine is extremely temperamental and we have yet to grind enough coffee for six cups without the grinder jamming. After a 30 minute attempt to grind coffee for tomorrow, we are throwing in the towel and will be returning this product. What a disappointment as we have not had any problems with our Breville products in the past.
Excerpt: I bought this for my husband 16 months ago. It looks great and is very nice quality. However, it has already broken and been replaced once - something about a stone in the coffee jamming the grinder - and now it has broken again. My husband uses different brands of coffee, and he has tried inspecting the beans as he refills it to make sure there are no stones, but that is a nuisance job made harder because the oils coat the stones and make them look like beans.
Excerpt: My husband and I love this grinder. I tried to find a coffeemaker/grinder combo but after reading review after review I couldn't make myself go that route. This is the perfect solution. It took us a few days to get out grind dialed in but not long and it's been prefect for us.
Excerpt: This grinder is great! Adjustable grinder from French press to espresso grind. At times a bean has gotten stuck and makes a high pitched sound but with a gentle tap the bean passes. It is part of my morning routine and we love it!
Excerpt: My fiancé and I received this from our wedding registry and it is by far one of our favorite gifts. It makes making French press a breeze! And it is short enough to fit under the kitchen cabinets on the counter.
Excerpt: I have owned the product for several weeks now and I must say that I am very impressed so far. I am still trying to find the "perfect" setting, but I know that I will. The grinder is coupled with the Technivorm Mochamaster and in my opinion, they are a great match for any kitchen.
Summary: Pricey, but easy to use & very consistent once you have tweaked the settings to personal preference. The anti-static design of grind bin allows easy emptying with minimal residue and mess. I just appreciate the attention to quality.
Pros: Consistent Grind, Durable, Easy To Use, Large Hopper, Reliable
