Product Description

Delonghi DCG-4T 12oz. Electric Coffee Mill with quantity selector knob

Amazon.com

Grind as little or as much coffee as you need with this deluxe coffee grinder. Only need a couple of tablespoons? Place 2 tablespoons of coffee beans in the top bin, choose your type of grind--extra-fine for espresso, fine or medium for drip coffee, or coarse for percolator or press--and switch the timer to the number 2. Your coffee beans will be ground to your exact specifications and deposited into a bin below with tablespoon amounts printed on the side. You can grind as little as 2 tablespoons or as much as 24 tablespoons at one time. Just pull the bottom bin straight out, remove the lid, and dump the ground coffee into your coffee or espresso maker. To clean, hand wash the removable bin and wipe the exterior with a damp cloth. --Doree Armstrong

Looking to upgrade from an old Braun blade grinder to a burr grinder, I found this DeLonghi up to the task. I grind mostly for drip, but have used it to make an occasional cappacino as well.
I would have given it 5 stars, but it could use a few amenities, which no doubt would raise the price. Since I'm not fully functional until I've had my morning coffee, I started grinding without the catch container in place. The result was ground coffee sprayed over the counter. An emergency stop or a sensor disabling the grinder when the catch container is not in place would protect me from my mental lapses. Someplace to hold a long stemmed spoon (to scoop out the ground coffee) would be convenient. Note that some appliances (rice cookers) have spoon and spatula holders. Finally, the bean dispenser cannot be detached from the unit. Admittedly, it does not need to be cleaned often, but it would be a nice feature.
Overall, this unit is easy to use, has good capacity, grinds consistently, and gives good value for the price.

I replaced an old, sluggish Krups grinder with this very nice product, which offers both a range of grinds (the "espresso" and "drip" settings both work very well, but they're the only ones I've used) and a "timer," which, as another reviewer remarked, is misnamed, but it's actually much more useful to have the grinder output a set amount rather than to grind for a set period of time. It grinds very quickly and evenly.
The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is that the freshly-ground coffee, which tends to be staticky from grinding, sticks to the inside of the plastic container. But my old Krups had the same problem, as do most plastic grinders.

March 2, 2009: RIP

I know this grinder is not in stock and probably discontinued, but cannot resist adding this final note. After eight years of use, my spouse noticed this morning that ground coffee was coming out the ventilation opening on the bottom of the machine. She started shaking the grinder a bit, and more coffee came out. Since it had seemed noisier lately, I decided to take the DeLonghi apart and give it a thorough cleaning.

Well...close to a POUND of ground coffee was filling up every empty space in the housing! Tap, brush, and grind produced more and more grounds. It got comical after a while. We had been going through more bean coffee lately, and I should have paid attention to my intuition about that.

I reassembled the machine, and sorry to say, almost no coffee was ejected into the grinds cup. It appears that a critical seal failed, and now my DeLonghi is hoarding all the grinds for itself. It may have been so full up that it was producing close to normal levels of grinds -- until I cleaned it.

After such a long period of time and over 3,000 pots of coffee, I don't think this grinder owes me anything. Here's hoping I can find a suitable replacement.

[[It's worth losing 35 "helpful" votes to add a follow-up to my original review: After three years, the only thing that has changed is that the grinds container has cracked. This affects, slightly, how the container fits into the grinder, but does not seem to affect the operation, which is still as described below. I can still recommend this workhorse after over one thousand cycles of use.]]

My last coffee grinder was also a burr grinder with an electronic timer -- I got it free as a reject from a tag sale and used it for nearly a year.

In a moment of weakness at Costco, I made this impulse purchase (...). The problem with this grinder is that the finest setting (espresso) is not fine enough, even for a standard No. 2 drip filter (it might be passable for plunger pots). I unscrewed the reservior to see if there were any adjustments that could be made to make the grind finer. I didn't see any, but when I screwed the reservior back in, I noticed that the mechanism limiting the grind granularity is just a soft plastic tab that can be mushed in with a flat head screwdriver. So, I mushed the top plastic tab (1-2mm in size) on the bottom of the reservior enough so that I could turn it past "espresso" -- if you do this, you can get another 7 clicks or so of fineness. At about 4 clicks past espresso, I can make a decent cup of coffee ([...] Anyway, I hope this is useful to some of you who've already purchased this grinder. The only other thing I've noticed is that you will quickly learn to tap the container that holds the grinds on a hard surface before opening the top.

This was an impulse buy, and I'm glad I purchased it!
I'd been using the Krups grinder for years, and the first thing I noticed about the DeLonghi was it was quieter than the Krups - something to appreciate early in the morning when others are still sleeping. The timer and grind setting features work well and eliminate the guesswork about how long to grind. We alternate between our drip coffeemaker and espresso machine and it's just a twist to change grind settings.
The only negatives I've found in the month I've owned it is there is no way to clean the grinding mechanism and the bean dispenser doesn't detach. My daughter drinks flavored coffees which I don't like and I worry that the flavors of different coffees might get mixed up and detract from the taste. So far that hasn't happened.
I found the price was not much more than standard grinders and was well worth it for all the added features and benefits.
