At the end of the day this is a coffee grinder. You put coffee beans in, close the lid, plug it in and push the button down and it grinds your coffee. It grinds it fast (I normally give it 10-20 seconds), has a very large capacity to grind lots at once (a normal bag of coffee beans would take 4 goes) and feels well built and safe (It doesn't start until the lid is firmly in place). It has nice minimal looks that would fit into any kitchen. The resulting coffee tastes great. Recommended if you need a coffee grinder.

Great coffee grinder. This is a wonderful grinder and it is powerful a of decent depth. I have used many grinders from the huble moulinex to Krupps.
I can honestly say this is the best of the bunch. It has a 200 watt motor and it feels sturdy and robust. With a little press it pounds through the coffee. You only need to press it for 10 seconds and I have good ground coffee. No faffing around and shaking or opening and checking if it is consistent. It just does the job efficiently and effectively. Like, I mentioned I have used many grinders and this is the best. It grinds everything you throw at it. I ground some nuts, and seeds and it ground them to a powder. I didn't want it ground to a powder, but I couldn't resist to see how powerful it was. The second batch of nuts (walnuts and hazlenuts) 5 seconds and they were ground to perfection for the cake the wife was readying.

If you were to buy one grinder from a bunch of many. This should be your first choice. It is Tefal so it has a good guarantee behind it. But, I suspect it will last a good few years. Will it outlast my old Moulinex, which lasted 10 years, I doubt it. Nothing lasts that long. But, 3-5 years I guess I got my moneys worth, due to the amount of grinding I do. My krupps and Andrew James are now relegated to the cupboard.

It's very noisy indeed. As a morning tool, that's a harsh wake up for your family, the neighbours, etc. I've used it to grind coffee and chocolate beans, and both work well. If it's not reasonably filled, it tends to just mush a bit of the stuff, but shaking and whacking it seem to work well for mixing the particles through the blades. Freshly ground coffee tastes much better to me - fresher and warmer tasting, somehow. The biggest downside is the poor grind control, sometimes I accidentally make espresso type powder instead of filter, but mostly I can time it about right now. With the cost difference, this is more than acceptable trade-off for our use.

What a brilliant product! Small, compact, powerful. I've only had it a few days, but it has been a life saver for my morning espresso. I used to buy the Lavazza Qualita' Rosso but now the beans I've been able to grind are the complete change, and this contraption does it all.

It's quick, easy to clean and can sit on your worktop or in storage space without taking up too much room whatsoever. A must buy for a value for money grinder and coffee enthusiasts like myself!

This grinder is really good & quick but the capacity is really quite small so if you're hoping to grind coffee for more than 3-4 of you, you'll need a bigger one (or two sessions!)

I also use it for flax seeds and sesame seeds. It works very well and it's extremely fast!
I absolutely reccommend it!

We buy ground coffee for the office, and over time people have picked up bags of coffee beans instead of ground coffee by accident, so I was looking for something cheap to use to grind the beans.

The bags of coffee we get are the standard 227g from a supermarket. This grinder can blend the whole bag by doing it four times.

The instructions say that you should run the grinder for no more than 20 seconds, and then let it stand for 1 minute. However, I find that 10 seconds is good enough to blend the beans, and after the first run you do start to smell burning from the motor inside. It's not a terrible smell, and at no time do I feel that the device is about to explode in my hands, but it's there and it can often overpower the smell of the freshly ground coffee.

Viewing the product image, you place the beans into the black section at the top, cover with the see through section which is the lid, and hold down the white part with your finger to make it start the blend. It's not the finest of pourers, so once I have blended the beans I tend to use a scoop to take out a few spoonfuls prior to tipping the remaining beans into a storage jar; if I don't take out the few scoops first it can get a little messy.

The device is a blender, more than a grinder, and simply uses two blades spinning to cut up the beans (it says you can also use this for spices, but I have not attempted that).

Once done, the cleaning it pretty straightforward. You can't submerge the black section in water as that's where the motor is, but I put some in the top section where the beans go and wipe clean with kitchen towel, and then the top see through section can be washed in the sink normally.

I would not recommend this product as something you bring to the table after a dinner party, but for a quick and functional piece of kit for occasional home use, it's decent enough for the price.

Used for grinding seeds to add to recipe, does a good job. I like particularly for coriander seeds as the husks left from crushing in a pestle and mortar can be annoying, especially in blended soups. This grinder completely reduces seed and husk to powder.

Pretty good at grinding coffee, but only a small amount at a time. A 200g bag takes about 5 or 6 smaller batches in the grinder. With experimentation, you can find the grind size you desire. The machine is pretty easy to clean after use with a dry cloth. But use it for anything else and you have issues. Grinding almonds for example, makes a mess of the machine and you can't take the stainless steel tray or blades out to clean it, nor can you rinse it under the tap. Disaster. A damp cloth can only do so much.
