Product Description

This heavy-duty stainless steel product grinds fresh coffee beans for a great flavour and aroma. The burr grinding plates have eighteen different settings so you can choose fine ground coffee for your espresso machine, medium for filter coffee or coarse for the cafetière. The machine is extremely easy to use as it is fully automatic, simply fill the bean hopper with fresh coffee beans, select the coarseness and how many cups you require and press start. It is easy to clean as all removable parts are dishwasher safe.

Does a great job at grinding the beans to whatever coarseness you want and is quick too. My only comment, would be that it is a quite noisy. i'm hoping that once it's been used a little more, that the noise will die down.

I have used the Cuisenart Burr Grinder now for 2 weeks , a little dissapointed .The grinder has many settings from course to fine , the fine setting is not as fine as I expected.I have a Gaggia espresso machine and find that the grind on the fine setting is not fine enogh,hence the brew is not as strong as it should be. The beans need to be well ground for a good espresso coffee but unfortunately the Cuisenart Burr Grinder does not grind the beans fine enough to achive the results I expected.

I've been using this mill every morning for the past 3 months with a few different beans, although no elephants yet, and am very very pleased with it.

To echo what others have said, and add my two pence worth.....

I find it makes perfect (paper) filter grind on the fifth notch from finest. Looks like a very even grind, with no residue in the jug or the cup. Set the cup selector (8 to make 4 mugs of coffee, 4 to make 2 mugs), press the button, fill up the coffee machine with water while you wait, then pour the entire freshly ground contents into the filter. Couldn't be easier.

I shut the kitchen door when grinding so I don't wake my wife two rooms away. It's certainly not quiet, but it's grinding coffee so what do you expect? It's no louder than 'professional' grinders. My cats aren't bothered by the noise, so it can't be that loud. They run a mile when I vacuum the flat!

The problems with static were a bit annoying at first. I appreciated the tip in another review of using the back of a spoon to discharge it, but found it's easier to just wipe your hand around the outside of the container. I've never had a shock. You can always touch the metal chassis of the grinder while you do it and this will discharge you. Static seems to have lessened considerably over time (Perspex is highly statically charged when it's manufactured, but once you have worked with it for a while, the static wears off) and this morning when I ran my hand over it there was just a tiny bit of charge at the base of the rear of the container. In any case, give it a couple of heavy taps (with your thumb over the hole!) before you remove the lid, as your worktop can soon get messy if there's charge, as grinds go flying everywhere.

Not a conical burr grinder it uses a simpler and cheaper flat burr geometry with one bur on the motor and a stationary one on the bean hopper. Rotating the hopper changes the gap between the flat burrs. Unfortunately the narrowest gap allowed is too large for espresso. If you just want to grind filter coffee or French press then this grinder will do the job no problem but for espresso I would say you need to alter the configuration a bit (hack 1). If you don't keep the hopper full I suggest you need hack 2.

Hack 1:
There is (as others reported here and elsewhere) a simple, very low-cost hack to shim the upper ring to reduce the smallest gap to espresso. This will naturally void any warranty and you will lose some of the the coarsest setting (French press) but it was so coarse as to be unnoticeable.

I used multiple layers of aluminium kitchen foil cut into washers, in the end mine took 13 foil sheets (0.212mm) for a good espresso grind and no burr collision. Now it was near perfect for espresso on finest setting.

Hack 2, Jumping beans;
At the end of a hopper full of beans or if you elect to not store your beans in the hopper (i.e. you just spoon in an exact measure of beans from a sealed container) then bean "jumping" (beans recoiling back up into hopper like a bingo machine) will mess up the measure actually ground. This is because the quantity actually ground is only set by a length of time for motor spin, set by a slider switch & calibrated assuming the hopper is relatively full. The motor spins really fast at few thousand rpm and beans can bounce off the burrs. So a grind in a full hopper will always yield a larger quantity of grinds than a relatively empty hopper where I find it takes at least double the time on coarse and three times on finest.

The grinder I have (now 6 weeks old) has so far ground 1.5kgs of dark roast, for use in an Espressivo extracter (Dualit).
On the finest setting, it's far too fine for espresso! I use third from the bottom for perfect grinds (and I mean perfect) I have very little powder produced and the grind is even throughout each batch.

The crema I produce is thick, about 2/3 mm deep, the coffee is dark and very bold, verging on bitter, but the right side of that line, perfect! I suspect this is mainly due to working out the perfect tamp for your grinds, and the pressure your machine can provide as well as achieving the perfect grinds.

It does need a little clean every week, just poke the residue off the outlet which does build up, very easy to do with the tool included.
The hopper unscrews easily to alow cleaning of the burr plate should you gum it up with some dirty fat robusta's, even easier with the included brush!

I have seen other grinders in action that cost three times the amount of this one and have bareley matched it's output.

One thing to note, it does spin up like a bugger, i'd be more re-assured if it sounded slower with more torque, it sounds cheap, but is far from it.

Any concerns about heating of the grinds through the high spin speed should be dismissed however, as i use my beans from the freezer (for freshness) they are almost as cold afterwards as grinds. I'd say they don't suffer from any appriciation on temperature.

I don't know what the problem's have been for the other reviewers, but combined with the 5 years manufactoring gaurantee, i'm absolutley chuffed to bits, which after reading these reviews before i got it home, was initially very worried.
