A stylish grinder for the serious coffee buff, this Cuisinart Supreme Grind automatic burr mill provides plenty of options and good results in an attractive and tidy structure. This makes it a great appliance for houses where coffee is a steady dietary staple and preferences vary from espresso to French drip. Outfitted with a heavy-duty motor, the machine has 18 grind settings ranging from fine to extra-coarse, which are controlled by a clearly marked, pleasantly clicking dial. Rotate the hopper to personal preference, and the machine does the rest, using burr plates for a highly uniform grind that protects bean oils and releases more flavor. Automatic operation in this grinder covers quantity as well--simply set the amount slide control anywhere from 4 to 18 cups. The grinder shuts off when the desired level is reached. Transfer of ready grounds to a coffee pot or espresso group is quick and tidy, because the grind chamber slides out with its clever lid in place. Smart and elegant, the grinder has brushed stainless steel housing and black accents in durable plastic. The hopper, hopper lid, grinding burr, and grind chamber all remove easily for cleanup, and a safety feature keeps the grinder from operating without the hopper and chamber in place. Standing 6-3/4 by 9-3/4 by 5 inches, the unit has built-in power cord storage at its base. Cuisinart includes a combined coffee scoop/cleaning brush. --Emily Bedard

Your Cuisinart Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill is fully automatic. There are 6 settings per grind type, and the grind chamber holds enough ground coffee for up to 32 cups. The unit is set for medium grind settings, which takes approximately 40 seconds to grind coffee for 12 cups, and approximately 55 seconds 18 cups. When choosing fine settings, you may need to set the cup selector at a higher number of cups to get the desired amount of coffee, as fine grinds are very compact. The opposite is true for coarse settings. You may need to set the cup selector at a larger number of cups to get the desired amount of coffee, as coarse grinds are very loose. To determine the right grind consistencies and quantities, experiment with different grinds and coffee types to suit your taste.
Cleaning and Storage
Be sure that grinder plug has been removed from outlet. All removable parts are dishwasher safe on the top rack. Do not put parts on bottom shelf. Never immerse the grinder base unit in water or other liquid. To clean, wipe with wet cloth and use cleaning brush to clean grind release area. Store excess cord by wrapping cord around the tabs provided under the base of the unit. Any other servicing of this product should be performed by an authorized service representative.
Top Customer Reviews
Why do we like it?
* It has a nice look with the majority being shiny stainless steel housing.
* The hopper on the top holds a half pound of beans.
* You have a choice of 6 settings for every type of grind you choose.
* It does great on coarse grind for our French Press coffee, very uniform.
* You hit the button and it stops when it is done grinding.
* Once you figure out what grind you like, how much you want and what setting you prefer it is a simple process and then you just have to decide what kind of bean you want in there. It does the rest.
* It is fairly easy to clean up, doesn't take up too much space and best of all it works great and does it all quite fast.
If either of us had anything negative to say about it, we'd have to say it is loud, but then if you aren't hand grinding, what isn't loud when it comes to grinding coffee via electricity?
We're happy with the product or we wouldn't have purchased a second one of the same exact type eight years after the first one. Plus, it must be others feel the same because eight years later the company is still making the same model! Hope if you get one you like it!
In this case, we have one of the lowest price mill grinders you can get. My prior coffee grinding has been with blade grinders. I had been shaking them gently while grinding just to get better uniformity. I've been through 3 blade grinders in 3 years due to broken blades, or warn out lid switches, etc.
This time I decided to try a mill grinder and found this one. I wasn't ready to spend $150+ to grind my coffee (as much as I love my coffee a certain way). After using this product a few times, here are my observations:
NEATNESS. It is true that it is messier than using the blade grinders I used before. It is a bit dusty. However, I have been able to minimize this issue after grinding using the following steps: (a) leaning the grinder forward and tapping the back, (b) gently pulling out the filled grind bin, (c) covering the opening with my hand (leaving the lid on), tilting the bin at an angle, and tapping again on the counter to make a nice pile for pouring, then (d) removing the lid and pouring directly into the coffee grind basket of the coffee pot, lightly tapping the bin. Even doing this, it's a little dusty, but not horrible.
GRIND UNIFORMITY. Grind uniformity isn't amazing, but it's way better than a blade grinder.
CONTROLS. The number-of-cups switch, which is really just a way of setting the automatic grinding time, is way off. At least the way I like my coffee (which is about a tablespoon of whole beans per 6oz coffee pot cup). For me, I have to take the number of tablespoons of beans I'm using, multiply by 3, and that's the approximate timer setting. So for 6 "cups" that's max setting on the timer of 18. For more cups, I have to run it twice. I think there's much room for inexpensive improvement for the product in this area. The timer should be much more generous. Also, to turn it off manually, you have to slide the switch to the off position. It would be more convenient if pressing the START button was really a START/STOP, but not a huge deal...
MAINTENANCE. I could imagine that if I ground a variety of flavored coffees in this machine, it would be a bit of a hassle to clean it between each change-over. It does leave some grind and chunks behind. But for me, I'm pretty much consistent in the type of coffee I use, so no biggy for me. I do clean it out anyone once in awhile. The nice thing about the unit is that the removable pieces are dishwasher safe.
MORE MAINTENANCE: There are several negative reviews that have said that their Cuisinart DBM-8 just stopped working after some time. Mine did exactly that after approximately 2-1/2 years of use. I decided to take the unit apart and found that, over the course of 2-1/2 years of grinding coffee a couple of times per day, there were a lot grounds into the cavity of the grinder workings compartment (see[...]). This comes from "blow back" of grounds when grinding beans back through the exit shute of the grinder. A little bit blows back on each grind, and how much probably depends upon how finely you grind your coffee. (We grind ours at about 30% of way around the indicator, from the finest position). In the 2-1/2 years, the unit accumulated at least 8-12 dry ounces of coffee grounds. It resulted in the slider switch being insulated and never allowing the unit to turn on. After cleaning out all the grounds and using a Q-tip to gently wipe the slider switch with 91% isopropyl, the unit works fine again.
My recommendation is, if you are mechanically inclined, take the unit apart every 6 months or so and clean out all the coffee grounds. That would include both the bottom cavity and the top cavity (they are accessed separately). The bottom cavity is accessible by pulling off the replaceable rubber feet and removing 4 screws. To get to the top cavity, you need to remove 4 screws that you can see recessed deep in the bottom cavity (you'll need a long stem, small or medium Phillips head screwdriver). There's another screw near the top where the grounds container goes. So that's 5 screws to get to the top cavity. You'll need to take out 4 more screws to remove the slider and push-button circuit card so you can clean it up before re-attaching it.
A possible design improvement for the unit would be a better seal or some kind of gasket around the small, square connection between the grinder and the grounds bin.
I included some pictures with measurements of this machine, and a comparison of the results. On the upper left are the cheap blade grinder grounds, lower left pre-ground bag grounds, and on the upper right this machine and lower right the hand crank burr.
Also, I only did two scoops (scoop included) which is enough for one shot of espresso. I just put it on the espresso setting at the lowest 4 cups. No problems with the very small amount. The catch cup has a lid, so be careful when you take it off to pour the grounds out (use a corner, not a flat side) straight into the deal to pack for espresso. There is static, so some grounds do stick in the bucket, but actually less than in the cheap blade grinder. This is easy to rinse out.
I don't know of course how long this will last, like any modern appliance it is mostly plastic. But it looks like it's fairly well made and treated well shouldn't have a problem. Until this breaks (and I'll update if it does soon) I would HIGHLY recommend this as a great grinder for the price point. If this review helped you, please click below and let others know!
