It has resumed a prominent place in my kitchen, as I have discovered the joy of cooking fresh, organic food for my growing family. I now use it for nuts, seeds and grains! I was using other grinders, then got a clue, pulled this out and VOILA! I am SOO impressed with it's simple design, speed, durability, versatility AND it's not as noisy as other grinders/blenders (I do my best work late at night, after the bumpkin is asleep).
In my very practical, no-frills little kitchen, this is a handsome, functional product that I have enjoyed for many years, and it has proved itself to be a great purchase.
Update 2/20/10: I've used this grinder daily (except when traveling) since getting it a little over 2 years ago, and it continues to run perfectly. I typically use it twice a day. By now I know exactly how many seconds to grind beans for drip, espresso, and French press coffee, and the results are perfect every time. So glad I have this powerful, "industrial strength" grinder.
Update 411/15: I bought this in 2007 and the motor continues to run like new, but because the blade has gotten dull over the years it takes longer to grind beans, though this is only a matter of seconds depending on the kind of grind I want. I researched replacing the blade and apparently there's no way to do that without sending the unit out, and after paying for shipping, labor, and a replacement blade, it would probably cost more than a new grinder of the same model.Read more ›
My issue (and part of the reason why it is probably so quiet) is a design "flaw". Most grinders I have used have two or more "stops" in the plastic cap. These look like sharp "speed bumps" on the sides of the cap. When the contents are swirling about, they hit these stops, which help to further break them up AND also to send them back down to the grinding blades. This Krups 4100 lacks those stops. For softer items, such as coffee beans, this is no problem. With small amounts of harder spices, such as cumin, fennel seeds or fenugreek,they don't ever really grind up completely. They tend to spin around and around in the chamber. My other grinder does have these stops the times I used it (prior to acquiring this one), it works just fine. If I am doing hard spices now, I just use a pestle and mortar, which does a much better job than the Krups 4100.

Good little grinder. I use it mainly for grinding spices. Although it does have trouble with small quantities of spices, that might be unavoidable.Published 1 month ago by Albert Li
