Liked Home Grinder Enough to Buy for Office

JustACostcoShopper, Costco
2 weeks ago
  • 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
3 weeks ago
  • 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.

Unreliable grind size

Katiedid2060, Costco
15 March 2014
  • Summary: The price was tempting on this machine, as was the words "burr grinder," so I was excited to get it. This Cuisinart grinder had two major problems: 1.) The size of the grains of coffee were inconsistent. That means some of your coffee will be under-extracted, and some will be over-extracted. It won't taste like it should. 2.) The grinder would not produce a very fine espresso grind. That made it useless for my purposes. I returned it and am going to get a better machine.
  • Pros: price
  • Cons: unreliable grain size did not produce a fine enough grind

Died after two months

CoffeedrinkingMama, Costco
11 March 2014
  • Summary: Terrible product for a normally good brand. Ground super fine, even on course setting. Constantly getting clogged. Pain to clean out. Used very lightly for about two months, then died in a puff of smoke and smell of rubber. Returned and did not replace.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: all of it

Good consistent coffee

BayShopper, Costco
10 March 2014
  • Summary: This is our second Cuisinart coffee mill (identical type), the first one was retired after 5 years of daily use. The new one is quieter. It produces consistent ground coffee at both fine and coarse setting. An excellent value at the price.
  • Pros: consistent grind relatively quiet

It works but not all the time.

mlb2112, Costco
9 March 2014
  • Summary: You have to keep this thing clean, when you pull out the cup after it's ground, be sure to clean out all the coffee grounds. It will compact in the part where it attaches and then not work properly. I am on my second one, I called Cuisinart and it was under warranty. That was the only good thing. I have to constantly clean that little part to be sure it will work. If you don't, the thing will not run.
  • Pros: fast
  • Cons: loud stops working often

Amazing Piece of Equipment

JohnnyBgD, Costco
9 March 2014
  • Summary: I use this daily, as does my wife, and most of my co workers. At work we use it at the beginning of every shift to get the day moving. At home, we use it to get the morning moving. We use them until they brake, and then buy a new one. The last one lasted a few years of constant daily abuse.

Will not last long

Billman1, Costco
7 March 2014
  • Summary: Purchased for a 2nd home and used a couple of times a week for less than 6 months and it failed. I sent it back to Cuisinart and they replaced it at an additional cost to me of 1/2 the original purchase price. I think I just spent good money after bad. Made in China, need I say more?
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: poor quaility
