Customer Reviews

The grinder never worked well and burned out and stopped after just a couple of months.
C. E. Brewer
A little experimentation, though, will allow you to pick a setting that grinds all the beans but doesn't run long afterward.
R. C Sherman
The hopper is poorly designed and the machine runs frequently without getting any beans fed into the grinder.

I bought the Krups GVX2-14 to replace a Braun burr grinder that I have had for about 8 years. The Braun was still working, but it was getting slow and noisy.

The Krups is a well-engineered, solidly-built unit. It has a range of settings for producing grinds of different fineness consistently from batch to batch. A little experimentation will give you the results you want, and the instruction booklet gives some helpful hints. There is also a setting that controls the length of time the grinder operates before automatically shutting off. This is given in "cups" of beans being ground, and may or may not correspond to your own definition of "cup" with the measure that you use. A little experimentation, though, will allow you to pick a setting that grinds all the beans but doesn't run long afterward. There is also a separate on/off switch. The unit is pleasantly quiet.

Removing coffee is easy and the grinder comes with a small brush for cleaning out coffee that collects around the opening from the grinding chamber. Cleaning the removable plastic hopper that holds the grounds is likewise easy. I haven't yet tried cleaning the hopper that holds the whole beans.

My only complaint, and it is a small one, is that a safety interlock prevents the motor from operating unless the cover for the bean hopper is on securely. This seems like overkill to me, since getting your finger into the grinding chamber would be nearly impossible.

All in all I am very pleased with the Krups, and hope it will last as well as my old Braun, which I've decided to keep as a back-up.

This grinder seems well made, and I agree with the positive comments of other reviewers, but if you're making drip or press coffee it may not suit you. The coarsest grind is ok for my cone-filter drip machine, but just. At the coarsest setting the least you can grind is 5-6 Tbsp - fine for a small pot but too much for a small press. That said, for espresso and larger quantities, it's teriffic! The small degrees of adjustment allow you to find the perfect grind.

Thankfully more manufacturers are starting to make products in all stainless steel look or stainless look and white, rather than combining stainless look and black. We are re-doing our kitchen and we'd like to minimize the black as much as possible. As a result, we swapped out our Cuisinart burr grinder for this number and are quite pleased for having done so.

Aside from color-coordination, we like this model because it is quieter than the Cuisinart (so long as beans are running through it), and it grinds the beans *much* better. The aroma of the beans was stronger and the coffee, upon brewing, had more body and flavor. It is also easier to clean.

The one area where the Cuisinart beats the Krups is in the amount of mess per grind ("AMPG"). The AMPG is noticeably more with the Krups than with the Cuisinart (which was more than with a traditional bean grinder). For me, that just means a few more swipes to the counter with a paper towel (and only four stars), but if you are particularly fastidious, you may not like this model. Overall, though, it's my favorite among the "affordable" burr grinders.

OK, for the price. It grinds coffee beans, this much is true. But three things "grind" me the wrong way. With the fineness selector cranked all the way to "coarse," the output is still pretty darn fine. I have no need to select "fine" because I do not have an espresso maker, but I imagine the "fine" setting must produce the consistency of flour. "Coarse" grind only good for drip makers -- not good for French press method because even the coarsest grind easily clogs the mesh filter -- you're better off with the control found in a blade grinder at one-quarter the price. An actual coarse grind might be achievable once the grinding elements become dulled somewhat. "Quiet" is a relative term. I can only say that this grinder is a little quieter than my vacuum cleaner, which leans toward not so quiet in my book -- you hear the motor whine/hum more than the grinding noise. I like the exterior styling of this grinder, but the brushed steel element (the cup selector) easily shows fingerprints that require firm buffing to remove. Although the longevity of this grinder is yet to be determined, the construction seems sturdy and should withstand average use.

I have to amend this review by saying that within a year the on button broke and it was such a disappointment. I hope this saves you some grief . DON'T BUY THIS GRINDER, IT IS A DUD! I really like this coffee grinder, but it took a while to get there. After reading the instruction booklet I followed the instructions to the letter. This resulted in the coffee grinder not working. It just sat there. After reading the directions again and going through the trouble shooting, it still did not work. Then with another try it did work. Just when I was ready to turn it in, it started working fine. It grinds the coffee just as you like it and without sounding like a weed blower in your kitchen. The only problem I have now is that sometimes I have to shake it to get all the beans to go through the grinder. It is a really fine grinder if you can get past the quirks.
