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.
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.

This grinder is OK for drip coffee, but even on the coarsest setting it produces a grind that is too fine for french press (which is why I purchased.)Published 5 months ago by Bohemus
