Product Description

Krups GVX1-14 Burr Grinder, Black. Grinding beans just before brewing ensures the best flavor. The best method of grinding is with a Krups burr grinder which produces a highly controllable texture without overheating the beans, 17 position fineness select


This smartly designed, finely tunable burr coffee grinder from Krups is built on the premise that good coffee starts with the freshest, most appropriate grind. Equipped with an expert-quality burr milling system, the machine turns out very consistent grounds with minimal heat for the best-tasting coffee. Its coarseness dial offers 17 distinct settings to create precisely the right grind for the occasion, brewing method, and kind of bean. In addition, the quantity dial, ranging from 2 to 12 cups, lets you grind no more coffee than you need, which helps preserve fresh aroma and flavor.

Structurally handsome and easy to use, the grinder features a large transparent bean hopper with a clearly marked "max" line. The grounds container, also transparent, is lidded and removable for tidy transport to the espresso machine or French press. Simple maintenance is also a boon here--the burr removes for easy cleanup and Krups includes a cleaning brush for the hopper. Shiny and matte black with silver accents, the grinder looks dashing on the countertop without drawing excess attention to itself. It stands 10-1/2 by 4-3/4 by 5-3/4 inches and carries a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

I've been the owner of this grinder since February 20, 2005. In that time span, I would guess that the beans have gotten "stuck" (whereby the burrs spin freely without doing anything) maybe 5 times TOTAL. I make coffee about 3 or 4 times a week. So that's somewhere between 30 and 45 operations, and it's goofed up 5 of those times. NOT ONCE have I had to disassemble anything. You just hit the grind button again to stop it, jostle it GENTLY back and forth, and hit the grind button again. Of course, you lose the timed grind that is supposed to happen, but I view it as a VERY MINOR inconvenience to have to stand there and manually turn it off when it's done grinding.

As for the complaints of size, I think we've pretty much come to a consensus among the reviewers that it's NOT freakishly huge, or whatever that one reviewer said. It's modestly sized, and certainly less blockish and imposing than, say, the Rancilio Rocky, for which you'll pay 5-10 times as much.

The noise is not an issue for me, because it's no noisier than the old blade grinder I had. You've got to look at these kinds of issues like you would evaluate a car. Yes, a Rolls Royce is going to have less road noise than a subcompact Toyota, but the Toyota isn't going to set you back $50,000, and it's going to use less gas, AND it's going to get you there in just as much time. So there might be some noise (particularly when the beans get lodged funny), but it's no worse than the KitchenAid blade grinder that will wake up not only your partner, but also your dog and the local fire department.

Lastly, the grind itself. I will agree with the complaints that have been lodged previously. First, the grind is generally too fine for the setting.

First, let me say that I am NOT a coffee connoisseur (heresy, I know). Just a guy with a drip machine and a need for much morning brew. I wanted to grind my own because I hate the flavored coffee taste that I always seem to get from the grocery store grinder. I'm also busy and lazy.

I really like this grinder; and I like it for the same reasons that the guy from Hawaii hated it. I want to spend my morning drinking coffee, not preparing it (one cup at a time? - yeah, right). Pour the beans in (no more measuring), push the button, and before you can fill the maker with water, you have just the right amount of grind ready to go. Yes, there's a little sticking to the plastic container, but I've never had it cause any mess - just tap it on the sink before you remove the lid then pour it into the filter. Grind size and quantity takes a couple of attempts to figure out exactly what you like, but seems pretty consistent once set. Only gave it 4 stars because there are features on the more expensive units that would be nice - a BIG, sealed, hopper that would hold several days worth of beans; and glass grind containers that would completely eliminate the static issue. However, for my use, and for the price, this thing works great. Hope it holds up over time.

When I read in these reviews that this grinder was fairly large, I hesitated, but went ahead and ordered anyway. Well, the package arrived today 11-01, (ordered on 10-26) and the grinder is fantastic. It is actually a bit shorter than my old Braun KMM30, but a bit wider. The design is clean and uncluttered. The Braun has a mechanical timer that needs to be reset each time it is used. The Krups has selectors for quality of grind (very wide range from fine to very course) and quantity of grind. Then there is a backlit power stop/start switch. Cobalt blue. So once you get the quality/quantity down for your taste, you leave it and just hit the power button.

Grind seems to be uniform, better than the Braun. Much better.

Quieter and faster than the Braun, too.

A great product.

I have had this machine just short of two years now. I find it an awesome machine for the money. Yes I agree that once in a while the beans catch and it needs a bump. The static problem has long been gone in mine. But, as far as the grind size range, it works great in mine, large enough for the French press and fine enough for the Espresso maker. If yours doesn't it is more than likely operator error. Put it together correctly, keep it clean and watch it work, all easy task if you pay attention. We grind over three pounds a week in my house, in all grind sizes. I would be hard pressed to get another model other than this one.

Why four stars you ask, because it doesn't fill itself and make my coffee for me!

I've been using the Krups GVX1 burr grinder for about 3 weeks and have twice had it jam, apparently lacking the torque necessary to grind the toughest beans. In both cases, the grinder was set on the finest grind setting and the grinder turned itself off. To get it working again, I moved the fineness selector lever to the coarsest setting and manually twisted the knob inside the grinder, and pressed the start button. So far, this has allowed me to keep grinding, but one wonders how many times the unit can do this and keep on working. Also, it would have been nice for Krups to have provided instructions on dealing with this possibility in its user's guide under Trouble Shooting Guide; it didn't.

As for performance while working properly: flawless. Does a great job of providing satisfactory amounts of very finely-ground coffee, perfect for espresso/lattes.

I think that the unit is quite attractively designed and modest in size - certainly not large as some have complained. The other nice characteristic is the amount of noise that it makes while grinding: very little, not enough to wake those sleeping in other parts of the house.

Overall, a good little grinder for the money, although I am a bit disappointed with the frequency of jams, as well as the lack of guidance as to what to do should a jam occur. I hope that the grinder will last awile, too, but wonder whether the jams may reduce its useful life.

I've now had this unit for 2 1/2 years, and while it still works, I have been very unimpressed - it jams constantly and is not a serious piece of equipment. I have come to the same conclusion as the many others: one star, more of a toy than a tool. I recommend that you avoid this item if you take your coffee, and its preparation, seriously.
