After six months my initial views remain the same, a very fine grinder!
CONS: oily beans can clog in bottom of hopper (all grinders seem to have oily bean issues), funky on/off switch location seems to get knocked to off all the time, timer can't be bypassed and seems to get turned down or up by incidental contact - if you are "dosing" be careful.
We've had the Icon for about three months now and are really very pleased with it. It replaced the horrible blade grinder in our dead Cuisinart Grind & Brew. Whatever you do I'd never buy anything but a separate conical burr grinder and coffee maker. The Cuisinart was terrible! Only a couple of minor flaws keep me from giving it five stars. But then the competitors start at $150 to $200, so I'm not complaining. Breville is an up and coming company in an exclusive field and they are giving Jura/Capresso fits at trendy stores. The unit is attractive and fits snugly under the cabinets in our small kitchen. It's designed to blend with the modern "professional"stainless kitchen look without going overboard so it gets good marks on looks.
The unit is easy to clean, except that I'd like to have a way to remove the lower section of the Conical Burr for weekly cleaning. If you use oily dark roast beans as we do you'll definitely want to clean regularly as oil builds up in the bottom of the hopper making beans stick. Gently rocking the grinder while it runs will dislodge any recalcitrant beans. This is not really a big problem and from the reviews I've read this is an issue with all grinders.Read more ›
For starters, it generates less than 50% of the noise I've heard from competing grinders. I have no idea why that should be, I just accept it and move on! The grounds are dispensed very neatly. There is no need to wipe up the surrounding countertop once the cycle is complete - all of the grounds arrive neatly in the little plastic receptacle.
When I first started researching burr grinders, I was intrigued by the concept of 'static reducing' technology. Given that grounds clinging to both the machine parts and the receptical can create a real mess, I was wondering if this magical technology was really effective. To my surprise, at least with this machine, the answer is 'yes'. I can flip the lid on the grounds receptical and tip the coffee into my machine with almost nothing left behind as a result of static cling - even if the grinder has just finished its work (which is when the static tends to be most bothersome).
The quality of the grind is fantastic. The output is uniform and the coarseness can be adjusted within a range that is probably far wider than I will ever explore. The finest setting produces grounds that are perfect, in my book, for even the fussiest espresso drinker.
The stylish-looking machine seems to be well-built, with high grade materials used throughout. I don't quite agree with some of the previous reviewers who feel the plastic is a bit flimsy. After over 3 months in service, I have not had any problems or concerns with the plastic.Read more ›
i contacted breville directly as they are nearby in torrance, ca. since amazon was out of stock on a replacement unit, i thought breville may have been able to help me trouble shoot the unit and save me the hassle of the return process. low and behold breville customer service is exceptional! they instantly emailed me a prepaid fed-ex return label and RMA and i had a new unit in 3 days! no questions asked! they even sprung for fed-ex saturday delivery! so bear that in mind if you get a defective unit.
so the grinder- truly excellent. especially for pump espresso...
well built, sturdy and nice looking in stainless steel. solid feel not a cheap plasticy feeling here.
no static. make sure you wash the grinds container before first use.
not too loud. actually alot quieter than our old blade grinder.
the grind. i got this because we recently purchased a "REAL" espresso machine- a gaggia carezza espresso machine and i usually do lattes on the weekend. i am a huge fan of fresh beans and love to grind before brewing (the way it should be done). however the gaggia is a little finicky on the grind. our blade grinder could not produce an even grind and i don't like buying preground. so i invested in this grinder. perfect grind! nice crema. i found with the carezza the best setting with the breville is JUST past the espresso setting 2 or 3 clicks toward the turkish. this provides a perfect even grind for the gaggia machine. haven't tried it out for our cuisinart drip maker yet but, i'm sure if it can satisfy the gaggia it'll rock the cuisinart.
the taste- fantastic. make sure you use a quality bean.Read more ›
