I've realized that the problem with turning to any Internet reviews, be they for products or restaurants, is that people are way, WAY too picky. Maybe it's just me, but it isn't helpful when people find it necessary to highlight anything and everything that could be seen as a possible flaw, thereby picking apart what is probably a suitable option for most people. So I want to begin by addressing two of the biggest complaints I've seen in these reviews: the unit makes a mess, there's a static problem with the grounds cartridge, and it's too hard to clean. I've also noticed a lot of people don't really understand why one would buy a conical burr mill as opposed to a plain ol' blade grinder (which are way cheaper.)
I've had the grinder for about 8 months now, and I have not experienced any of those issues to the extent that many people describe. If you give the unit a little tap on the side before removing the grounds cartridge after you grind, you're not going to have surprise grounds coming out of the chute. I have not found the static issue to be that big of a deal. The grounds cartridge is plastic, so yes, there is some sticking of the grounds to the sides of the cartridge, but it's usually the finer bits and dust (which I don't want anyway), and it really isn't that much. The cartridge is very easy to rinse out and dry. I brew using a Chemex, so uniformity of the grounds is really key for me. I brew every day, sometimes twice a day, so as long as I clean the burr every few days, the grind stays really uniform. It's not that difficult to clean.Read more ›
The Cuisinart Programmable Conical Burr grinder was my ultimate choice, after reading several reviews and doing plenty of research. I love the light-up LCD display, the start/stop switch (for those mornings when I'm not quite awake and start the grinder before I realize there's not enough beans in the hopper), the ease of adjusting the grind, and the overall design. While I had considered purchasing a cheaper product, (my Capresso was only around $40 afterall) I am very glad I went with this product. We grind our coffee fresh every morning, and thus far have been very pleased with how this unit performs.
The only reason I did not give this unit 5 stars is b/c it, like other Burr grinders, has a problem with static. I live in Houston, a VERY humid climate, but even the moisture in the air doesn't keep the static down enough, which can be bothersome. It means a bit of clean-up after every use, but the extent of the static is SIGNIFICANTLY less with this unit than my Capresso grinder, and the clean-up on this unit is far easier.
I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants something more reliable and consistent than a simple grinder, but doesn't want to spend a million dollars on a burr grinder.

Since I purchased this device, I also acquired a stove top espresso maker and an old fashioned stove top coffee percolator. I have experimented with different grinds and mostly use the setting #3 'espresso' for both my drip and espresso brewers. I weigh (ounces) rather than measure (spoons) of the coffee and have found about 1.4 ounces of #3 grind will make a very good 10 cup pot of drip coffee. The percolator still needs a coarse grind, I use #12 setting for that. I first tasted coffee before drip coffee makers were widely available and sometimes miss the taste of old fashioned percolated. You cannot hardly purchase coarse ground coffee any more, I find the selectable grind settings a big plus.
2 comments that are not issues but to be aware of. As it has an Blue LCD display there is always a blue light on, so for some this could be good and others a nuisance. Also you must keept the bin and slots clean as any slight grounds in the bin area will cause some minor leakage

Features are nice and the grind is good but so much static cling with the grind. No mater how much tapping I did the static in the grind was just too much. Read morePublished 3 days ago by AS
