Krups GX610050 Professional Die Cast Conical Burr Grinder

"... from 20 different textures ranging from very fine for espresso machines to very course for use in a French press. Next, determine the number of coffee drinkers and adjust the quantity setting from 2 to 20 cups ...The machine automatically stops once the designated quantity has been achieved and the coffee extracts easily via a removable container. Topped with a large capacity hopper, the grinder fills effortlessly and provides easy access to its removable burr for cleaning. 150 watts"

Click Here (www.amazon.com)

Looks like a Graef CM80

and the Sunbeam EM0480 - but the burrs are a different design

Could be interesting for $100.

That looks like a steal!  The only things that would worry me is that a) it is a Krups and b) how well is it designed for longevity?  The burrs look to be of good quality but I wonder how well the burr carrier is designed.

Can they mean die cast burrs? If so, is that any better than the sintered burrs in some of the "pseudo burr" machines?

The burr carrier looks familiar - resembles the Cuisinart CBM-18 and the Breville Smart grinder with the folded top burr removal handle sitting there.

Breville to left, Cuisinart on the right.

I just came across this grinder today and it is quite tempting.  I am curious to see how consistently it can grind.  The reviews so far don't hold much water.

I wanted to bump this thread as I am in need of a grinder for my Aeropress at work. I've been considering the Bodum Bistro at about the $80 price point. But I am wondering if this Krups model is worth an extra $20, especially if any members here have been able to get it to work for espresso, with or without modding it. Anybody have any input? TIA.

That is only $30 from a maestro plus..

The other possibility is that Bed Bath and Beyond might carry it and you could use a 20% off coupon..

The grinder arrived this evening so I will spend some time with it this weekend but here is a photo of the machine out of the box. It is smaller than I thought and looks nice enough for most counters.

One might be tempted to use "eye metallurgy" to evaluate the burr set as die cast since the grinder is called "Professional Die Cast Conical Burr Grinder" by Krups, the manufacturer. A quick look reveals several products ranging from blenders to coffee makers that carry the "Die Cast" label as well - a marketing term to indicate strength and quality compared to plastic I imagine.  Breville uses the term in a similar manner too.  

In any case, the burrs look like other machined burrs to me. Maybe they die cast them and then machine them, but when I think of die cast I think of a seam being visible from molding and nothing like that is visible.
