i was shopping for stone mortar and pestles to use for grinding spices and seeds, but there were so many complexities involved in the type of material used for them and what of it was being ground into the food that I was concerned. This Cuisinart coffee bean grinder is a blade type grinder that works wonderfully and quickly as a spice grinder. I can pulse tthe grinder to achieve the fineness just the way I want it. It is easily wiped clean. Exactly what I needed.
I bought the Cuisinart coffee grinder when my Krups finally gave out after many years of daily use. The Cuisinart has a curved shape on the side which looks good on the counter top, but makes it difficult to grab to pour the grinds into the coffee maker. Although it says it is large capacity, the motor runs but grinder doesn't grind the beans when the cup is filled to capacity. So, I had to grind 3-4 smaller batches of coffee beans. The grinder is quiet when using small batches - that's a plus. But, the cup is also messy and spills the grinds all over the counter when you lift the lid. Just four days after using it, the motor gave out. I don't recommend this product at all. I plan to get another Krups or a burr mill this time.
Compact and easy to use. Really enjoy FRESH ground coffee!
Only been using this grinder for a few weeks but so far I really like it. Not too noisy, seems to have enough power to grind 7T of coffee readily and nice to be able to see the coursness of the grind through the plastic cover. Hope it last as long as my last one. Thx
I bought this a month ago after wanting to start grinding my own coffee beans. This product easily grinds the beans to the right consistency.
Easy to use. Able to decide how fine the coffee is ground.
