Budget burr grinder from Cuisinart.
Bottom Line: Waste of money, look elsewhere. This grinder would not be worth buying if it were $5.00.
Jack Moran (quality: 2.0)
Bottom Line: Don't buy
Bottom Line: Dont buy this unit! Very very messy. Noisy. Ours started smoking after only 3 mo. use. Took it back.
Jeff Dubrule (quality: 10.0)
Bottom Line: Can't make espresso grinds due to its fake burrs. Don't buy it, even "just for now", you'll never learn anything.
Betina Vincent (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: skip this, and spend a little more for a decent burr grinder.
Bottom Line: Will yield very coarse, inconsistent grounds. And is very noisy in doing so. The "espresso"(finest) setting, is still no good unless you want to filter brew or use a french press.
Bottom Line: Don't bother, the grind consistency is horrible.
Jonathan Friedes (quality: 9.5)
Bottom Line: If you are passive-aggressive, and you are looking for the perfect present for a coffee-loving ex, this is it!
Barry Strum (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Calling all mentsches....but no mavens. After a few months with this machine I find its behavior annoying....noise, dust, Dots are not settings...merely dots !!
Fabrizio Scalfo (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: DO NOT Buy, if you use a pump driven espresso machine
John Rolison (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Keep Looking!
Chris W (quality: 3.0)
Bottom Line: Good for drip coffee while it lasted - which was too short of a time!
Chad Beauford (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Stylish good looks and counter-friendly compactness will not overcome the fine powder included at every grind setting.
Bottom Line: A decent start if you're not too picky.
Mark D'Angelo (quality: 6.7)
Bottom Line: Basically save up for something decent, and dont waste money on something that "looks" like its a real burr grinder, because clearly its not..
Aaron Corey (quality: 8.5)
Bottom Line: If the only coffee you make is drip with a paper filter- this would be an alright grinder, but so would just about anything else. I would suggest you pass on this item, and find something that is manufactured with more precision.
Bottom Line: Reasonably well-made, good looking grinder that is completely unsuitable for espresso.
Bottom Line: For someone doing drip coffee with a paper filter it's fine, and the timer means you don't need to measure scoops.
Matt Johnson (quality: 10.0)
Bottom Line: Easy to use basic burr grinder, not for espresso, but a decent value and step up from the whirly bird blade grinders.
Bottom Line: If you understand what $50 will get you and are comfortable with that then this is a great grinder.
