Includes a time and auto shutoff feature. Imported. 9Hx7Wx4D".

By crushing coffee beans rather than grinding them, this electric mill produces uniform granules to preserve flavor and aroma. The machine can be adjusted for fine (espresso), medium (drip), or coarse (percolator) granules. The bean container holds enough for up to 20 cups of coffee, and a dial controls the amount of time the mill operates so varying amounts of beans can be crushed. Both the bean and coffee containers can be removed for easy operation. A 1-1/2-tablespoon scoop is included, and its angled handle doubles to scrape away excess particles of coffee. With both containers in place, the mill, clad in black plastic, measures 8-1/2 inches wide, 8-3/4 inches high, and 5 inches deep. --Fred Brack

Static electricity causes the grounds to spray all over the kitchen.
Basking in the Ridge
When you pull the container out to get your ground coffee, the clogged coffee build-up makes it difficult to pull out.

I've had mine for about half a year now and use it 4 or 5 times a week.

I was very impressed with how uniform and consistent the grinding was of the coffee beans I used. Oily beans tend not to be as uniform which is why I could not give it the full compliment of 5 stars. Easy clean-up as it is dishwasher safe.

Very uniform grinding with the exception of using flavored beans that are overly oily. Easy clean up and most of the time I put the breakaway parts in the dishwasher with no problem.

I must add my voice to the growing chorus of dissatisfied B&D SmartGrind owners. My biggest complaint is that the size distribution of the resultant grind on any coarseness setting runs the gamut from superfine powder to large flakes. During the grind, I have to lay a towel over the seam between the unit and the grind collection cup to keep fine particles from flying out -- doesn't happen every time, and there's not a lot, but very noticeable against the white wall and countertop!
I've had mine for about half a year now and use it 4 or 5 times a week. A crack has developed at the bottom of the whole bean cup (like that of the other reviewers here) and is slowly working its way up the side toward the lid. The final insult is that this device is LOUD: your neighbors will wonder why you're always doing small carpentry projects early in the morning...

I purchased the B & D grinder fully intending to return it to the seller (They have a no questions asked guarantee and actually encourage you to try a product and return it if you don't like it) after reading all the negative reviews. I figured "what the heck...for 30 bucks it's worth a try." I don't know yet about many of the complaints about longevity as I have had it for only a few days. But the quality of grinding is great. Maybe not as good as a $500 grinder but more than adequate for my home espresso machine.
As for static causing coffee to fly all over the place... I open the lid slowly and carefully set it on the counter upside down and I actually have far less mess than I did with my blade grinder.
Most of the negative reviews are from early in this year or last year so maybe B & D has improved the product. I have no idea if this is so, but I highly recommend the grinder if you don't want to spend big bucks and want a consistent grind for espresso or a coffee maker.

I purchased this grinder to replace a Krups blade grinder that had finally stopped working after many years of service. Reading several other reviews that complained of the mess this thing makes should have prepared me for the daily explosion of ground coffee across my counter caused by the static buildup of the unit. Also, if you like dark oily coffee beans from Peets, Starbucks or Illy, you'll find yourself constantly patting the top of the machine to keep the beans flowing down to the grinding mechanism. I look foolish enough first thing in the morning, I certainly don't need the help of a crummy coffee grinder to make matters worse. Spend a few extra $ for a better burr grinder or stick with your old blade grinder.

The mill makes a fairly consistent grind, only failing with regards to the papery membrane of the bean, which comes out in larger flakes but doesn't seem to affect espresso brewing. The measuring spoon which comes with the mill includes a tab for clearing the spout, which has to be done after every grind.
This is the cheapest burr mill available, and is cost-effective when compared to units such as Braun's which cost twice as much and perform only slightly better. Coffee obsessives on tight budgets who are unhappy with the grind on this will probably not be satisfied with anything less than barista-grade ware. For a unit that costs only five bucks more than most decent blade mills, it's a killer bargain.
The star rating is adjusted upward for its price, and downward for the phenomenal static buildup that occurs in the grounds receptacle which cause grounds to spray when the lid is opened.

After reading the reviews, some of which gave high (5 stars) ratings and others giving very low (1-2 stars) ratings, I thought I would give another opinion to help people decide on whether to purchase this product. I bought this product to use with a "french press" coffeemaker. This type of brewing requires fresh, coarse ground beans. The SmartGrind Deluxe performs beautifully in this respect in that I can adjust the coarseness of the grinding. The burr grinder is only slightly noisier than my old blade grinder, no big problem. Also the problem with so-called "static" and messy grinding does not occur in my experience. Grinding beans is inherently messy. The one dislike I have is that the bean cup holder is made of plastic, not glass. You must treat the grinder gently and not force the bean cup holder into place or you may crack or break the plastic. Also plastic usually doesn't last longer if one puts it in the dishwasher with high heat. The bean holder and grindings holder is easy to clean with the simple wipe of a paper napkin. I hope with proper care, this product will last for years to come (I will write another review if not). The SmartGrind Deluxe is a fine, affordable product that allows one to brew a lovely, strong, and aromatic fresh cup of coffee.
