Product Description

Product Description

Once you've ground your own carefully chosen, aromatic coffee beans immediately prior to brewing, it isn't likely you'll willingly return to the bland, dreary workaday world of pre-ground coffee. The Braun KSM2 Coffee Grinder makes this new level of gourmet pleasure possible simply, reliably and with complete safety. 150 watt motor Graduated measuring scale Convenient cord storage Also great for finely chopping nuts Color - BLACK

Amazon.com

Large enough to grind up to 2-1/2 ounces of coffee beans (enough for 12 cups), this powerful grinder ensures that freshly ground coffee is quickly available, even for big coffeemakers in the office. The details are what make this grinder exceptional: The lid is transparent for monitoring the grind, and has two down-pointing ribs to guide beans toward the blades for even grinding. The design of the stainless-steel blades, combined with the 150-watt motor, means beans can be ground quickly without overheating and spoiling the coffee's taste. For safety, the grinder will not work unless the lid is securely in place and locked down. Finally, the power cord wraps around the grinder's bottom for neat storage. Clad in elegant black , the grinder carries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

As a coffee addict, my Braun coffee grinder is one of my favorite small kitchen appliances. It grinds quickly and evenly, and has lasted me for years already. Although a teaspoon or so of grounds gets packed into the bottom, a quick rap on the side generally frees them. The grinder is fairly small (a little over seven inches high) so it does not take up much counter space, a big plus for most kitchens.
If you like freshly ground coffee, you can't go wrong with this simple and efficient grinder. Package this with a pound of whole beans, and you've got a great gift.

We received this coffee grinder as a gift about 5 years ago, and it's still going strong. It's fairly loud but quite fast: in only a few seconds, you can have aromatic, finely ground coffee, and nary a bean in the mix! It's true that the capacity is small, but I've never found this to be a problem, especially since the best coffee requires freshly ground beans. And although the unit is not dishwasher safe, I've never had a problem with cleanup either, as I just rinse out the plastic cup and use a damp paper towel to wipe out the interior. This inexpensive, easy-to-use tool is a perfect addition to your kitchen!

When I received a bag of coffee beans in a gift package, I decided to do what every coffee lover eventually does, get a grinder, and enjoy the marvelous aroma of newly ground beans, and the freshest of coffee in my cup.

I've always had good luck with Braun appliances, so chose this sleek and easy little grinder, which is simple to operate and clean; it only has one lever, with the fineness of the grind determined by how long you press it down, and the progress is visible through the clear top. For an extra fine grind, use less beans for best results...there is a warning to not "overheat the motor", which would probably be the result of grinding too many beans at one time for too long.

Cleaning is a snap: The top rinses out, and a swipe with a paper towel cleans out the grinding cup, which is part of the motorized section, and the bottom has a handy spool for use as a cord wrap.

Now my little kitchen area is permeated with the smell of fresh coffee, my lattes taste better than ever, and I have the new adventure of trying out different types of beans, and delight in the wondrous world of gourmet coffee !

I have ground 6 tsps of a coffee a day everyday of the week for the past 8 years with a Black Braun Coffee Grinder. My father does the same thing but his 10 years old. The beans come quite even and is very easy to dump or pour into the coffee filter. The cord is very easily wrapped up - no need to unplug it like others (Krups). No maintenance is required just wipe the inside with a damp paper towel whenever you change flavors.

Pros:

-- Price - a great value for the joy of drinking fresh ground coffee in the morning.

-- Quality - I've owned my grinder for a few years now, and it has been very consistent in it's ability to grind beans.

-- Storage - if you'll notice the picture - there seems to be a small disc below the grinder. This is actually a sort of column to wrap the power cord around. Takes up about as much space as a can of lysol.

Cons:

-- Only one, she can be a messy booger sometimes.

The great thing about having your own grinder is that you get to decide how fine the grind is. Sometimes, I want an especially strong and textured coffee, and so I'll make something close to or beyond what might be an espresso grind (the consistency is something like dust). Sometimes, I want a regular grind for my drippy coffee maker. Either way, with your own coffee grinder you are not bound to the limits of mass produced, pre-ground coffee!

The grinder has a knack of compacting some of the finer grinds below the blades. I've found that this may be fought via two avenues (I know folks have their own remedies, but here's my two cents).

The first is to hold the measuring cup tight on top of the grinder while holding the entire product upside down. Then, beat the bottom of the grinder (the disc I mentioned earlier)with the palm of your hand.

The other remedy is to vary your grinding. What I mean by this is to pulse grind your coffee instead of keeping your thumb on top of the device. The result is that the grinds themselves are sort of whipped around and knock the coffee below the blades loose.

Regarding my one con - my coffee grinder tends to leave small grinds and coffee dust on my counter. Understandably, this may be a result of my beating my grinder with the palm of my hand repeatedly.

I've owned this grinder for 10 years plus and use it frequently for grinding coffee and spices. It does the job well. Yes, it's loud, it's a grinder with hard beans flying around in it!

When I want to grind spices I clean it out first by grinding white rice in it and then wiping it out with a slightly damp paper towel. (Unplug it before wiping it out.) Cleans up very nicely. The lid can be washed out with regular dish soap. Cloves can be a little tough to clean off the inside of the lid, they have a lot of oil that seems to stick more than other spices. Still, I love using fresh spices, so a little extra clean up effort is ok by me. If you want to grind cinnamon in this, break up the sticks first. I don't grind nutmeg in this grinder. I imagine the large nutmeg pods could reek havoc on the blades.

All in all, I'm very satisfied with this product.
