Budget burr grinder from Cuisinart.

Tyler Aftab (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Not worth it
John Rolison (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Keep Looking!
Eric Windisch (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Best under-$50 option for brewing french-press or (manual) drip. Not for espresso.
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 !!
Keith Wissman (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Okay for the money, not good enough for us snobs.
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..
Jeff M (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: Great coffee grinder, lousy espresso grinder, however easy and cheap to modify in 5 minutes.
Mike Proms (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Great grinding for home coffee making... as long as you treat it with respect.
Jessica Aubrey (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: If the sand doesnt break it withing the next 8 months i swear Im buying one for every one I know.
Fabrizio Scalfo (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: DO NOT Buy, if you use a pump driven espresso machine
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.
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.
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!
Larry Schwarcz (quality: 9.5)
Bottom Line: It works OK when using a paper filter to brew but really is a low-end grinder.
Jeff Dubrule (quality: 9.5)
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.
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.
