4.0 out of 5 stars Remarkably good for £30!!, 5 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: De'Longhi KG79 Professional Burr Grinder (Kitchen & Home)
Considering how much 'proper' burr grinders cost, I wasn't expecting perfection, but the positive review here encouraged me to go for this item on trust. I have to say I'm delighted and amazed at how good it is! It's neat, tidy and compact. Doesn't seem to make a mess with all the ground coffee captured neatly in a well sealed container. The adjustments for both the amount and coarseness of grind seem remarkably accurate and consistent from use to use. As for the reviewer that said the grind wasn't fine enough, well I'm amazed because I started out on the finest setting and the results seemed almost too fine, certainly as fine or finer that the Lavazza coffee I used to buy.

Anyway, I think this is and excellent bit of kit and great value for money, so highly recommended! I only held back one star because the small container makes it a bit tricky to transfer the ground coffee to the filter cup.

Oh and one last tip. Any stones in the beans will trash any burr grinder, but as stones are much heavier than beans, they will sink to the bottom of the bean container if given a little shake. So just make sure that you always pour that last few beans into a bowl and have a quick look through, rather than dumping the end of the tin or bag straight into your grinder.

Can't really fault the unit with one less star due to spillage upon transferral. Obvioulsy this is due to the compact size which you also stated was a plus. One just needs to migrate the ground coffee elsewhere in the interim. I find an old glass coffee container works well to keep it stored for a few days and dip into it with a measured spoon (supplied with the espresso machine). No mess whatsoever.

I thought the idea of ground coffee was only to grind what you needed for then and there?!
