Summary: I bought this to replace a Mr. Coffee burr grinder in the same price range. The mr. coffee one broke after less than a year of use. This one I have only had a few days but I like it better already, the construction feels more hefty. Only time will tell if it will go the distance.
Pros: great value for an entry level burr grinder hopper holds a lot of beans easy to operate heavy sturdy feeling
Cons: finely ground coffee sticks to side of container noisy
Summary: I can understand the good reviews for this coffee grinder up to a point. When it works it works great but it's very noisy. It's also very messy to clean. Yes, it works very well--until it just quits working.
Pros: work well for as long as it keeps working holds a lot of coffee beans in the hopper adjustable grinds
Cons: very noisy stops working in about a year very messy to clean
Summary: I have had mine for 5 years and my son had his for even longer. I also bought one for my mom over 5 years ago and all three work great. Still using all of them Have used it in espresso makers and drip coffee makers and in French press. Works great with all kinds of beans.
Pros: lasts a long time grinds coarse for coffee maker and french press grinds fine for espresso maker
Cons: it is loud it grinds for certain length of time
Summary: I bought mine at the warehouse 2 years ago, for $29.95; it's retailed at $59.95 - 89.95 elsewhere. In general, I use the finest setting for auto-drip brewing, and medium setting for the French press brewing.
Cons: don't expect the fine setting to be espresso fine the 18 settings are not necessary (i use only 2)
Summary: I grind beans I buy at Costco that are a dark roast and tend to be quite oily. If you grind similar beans, it's imperative that you take a toothpick after every grind and poke out the build-up of ground coffee remaining in 'little window' of the grinder.
Summary: This product is loud enough to wake everyone in the house. It looks nice, and it ground fine for making drip coffee. It must be cleaned every month or so, as the spilled grounds prevent the hopper from tripping the safety switch and can even fully obstruct the dispenser chute.
Pros: nice looking acceptable performance for drip
Cons: very loud started behaving erratically after 6 mo failed after 1 year messy spilled grounds clogs and needs cleaned every month
Excerpt: This grinder is a replacement for a Braun burr grinder that I had for about 20 years before it finally gave up! .. Cuisinart makes a great burr grinder that I expect I'll have for another 20 years!!
