It was ok, until it wasn't

Anonymous, Costco
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: We found the grind to be a little on the finer side, and the amount of coffee ground to be erratic and inexact, but no matter...the convenience was worth the shortcomings...until yesterday, when, after maybe 3 months, it just growled and then died. Good thing we purchased this from Costco! We won't be buying another one, but instead applying the refund against a better model. You can save yourself the trouble and pass on this one...it's a disappointment from Cuisinart.
  • Pros: convenient
  • Cons: inaccurate as to amount of grind finer grind than expected

Motor failed at 3 months on light use

Dergon, Costco
24 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this for the occasional grinding for a french press. Our coffee maker has a built in grinder so this unit only gets used on the weekends. Despite the light use it died this morning after only a few months. Guess I'll go to the store and try my luck with another unit.
  • Pros: grinds coarsely well.
  • Cons: motor faliure

Great Grinder for the Price

Plus3, Costco
7 May 2014
  • Summary: I've had the product for about 5 years and have used it well over 1000 times (4-7) times a week. It is loud. There isn't a as much perceptible variance in the grind as I would have expected to see. But, it has performed well. I've never had to clean the grinding mechanism. A sharp bang of the bottom of the canister on the counter knocks the fines from the sides. The canister is not hard to insert back into grinder. I doubt it can be beat at twice the price.
  • Pros: price
  • Cons: loud

It does it's job

CalGal2nv, Costco
30 April 2014
  • Summary: This is my first burr grinder, so the only other experience I have are the pro ones in the stores. This works fine for what you need. It's loud and it does leave quite of bit of coffee 'dust' stuck to the interior of the bin due to the static build-up. I've had it two years now. So far so good. I don't use it daily. I grind enough for a few days, to use in my Keurig, and the uniformity of grind is consistent. For the price, I would buy it again.
  • Pros: the price
  • Cons: static build-up in bin. loud.

Liked Home Grinder Enough to Buy for Office

JustACostcoShopper, Costco
1 April 2014
  • Summary: Inexpensive coffee grinder that does what it needs to. :-) Only using for coarse grind for French press. Perhaps 1/8 teaspoon coffee "dust" generated during each grind but it is contained by the coffee bin. Biggest irritant is getting the collecting bin back into grinder which brings the rating down to four stars. Liked it enough though to buy a grinder for my office.
  • Pros: great bang for the buck
  • Cons: irritating to reassemble after each grind

Disappointing

Cafeconleche, Costco
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I've had this coffee grinder - my first - for 4 months, and have used it only about twice a month, grinding big batches of beans for parties and get togethers. I grind for French press, espresso and drip. This machine died on me last night. I thought the motor had overheated since I discovered the coffee shoot had clogged. After waiting 1/2 hour to turn it back on (and having cleaned out the shoot), it was still dead. Dead still this morning.
  • Pros: easy to use precise measurement for drip coffee
  • Cons: hard clumps on fine grind machine died

Cuisinart® Supreme Grind™ Automatic Burr Mill

hmbi, Costco
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I would not recommend this product we replaced it once and now the second one the motor burnt out again. We have had the last one for 2 months. The grind was nice and the automatic shut off was a nice feature.
  • Pros: automatic shut off
  • Cons: the motor keeps burning out.
