After breaking the housing I found that the problem is in the "seal" around the rotating shaft. The issue is that there is no seal. Instead it is just "closely" fitting plastic that allows fine particles to collect around the high speed shaft, which melts the particles into a gum-like substance under the heat generated by the spinning shaft. This gum sets up like hard plastic over time, which chokes the speed of the shaft causing the motor to develop a hum as it was not designed to spin under such a friction load. I will not buy another Krups product as this is the 2nd grinder I bought and both failed in exactly the same way.
I did like it as it was simple in design and had ample space for adequate coffee beans (the black one I bought) or spices (the white one I bought). But if it fails after light use then it is garbage.
Don’t drink coffee, but, I love this little seed grinder! I use it to grind flax seeds to add to recipes and to grind nuts to use as toppings on salads or frozen yogurt sundaes! It’s easy to use and works well. And as far as I can tell they last quite a while, my old one was over 5 years old before it was lost… but, it really is quite a nice product and makes for a bit of versatility when trying to make your recipes a bit healthier or just grinding requirements in general. I have made facials using ground oatmeal, sesame, rice, etc...
Pros and Cons:
1. The newer devices (all-brands) aren't as sturdy as the older ones-- although a bit larger than previous models, sometimes due to heavy grinding of beans the cover may crack (it will still work--but this never happened with the older ones)..
2. Grinders can be a bit noisy, so you may want to do advance grinding when people are already awake to avoid unnecessarily disturbing the whole sleeping household, and store the bulk in the fridge in a ziplock for freshness.
1. You can get a lot done, especially for small-batch recipes...
2. Grinds almost anything (dry beans, coffee beans, seeds, oats, etc)
Overall, this device is a really nice product for the price.
Grade: A- / 4.95 Stars!
So I finally plunked down the $17 for this item, with much trepidation, having seen the horrible reviews for much more expensive grinders.
Then I had a dip in my health and didn't get around to using it until recently. The very first time I turned it on, just to test it, I smelled hot metal. If I had tested it out when I first got it and smelled that smell I'd have sent it back but it was well past the return date by now.
So without much hope I went ahead and ground up my first set of spices for something I was making. I ground up cumin seeds, peanuts, and some dried red peppers.
First the peanuts. I coarsely ground a handful of peanuts (couple T) for garnish. Dumped those out - no noticeable motor smell.
Then some more peanuts, whirled those around for awhile, then dumped in the rest of the spices. Because the peanuts are very oily, as they ground finer they tended to stick to the sides of the grinder, which I expected, knowing how oily they are. The rest of the spices whirled around and ground into a powder. Larger pieces remained in the center of the grinder while the powder tended to add itself to the peanut-based matrix on the sides of the grinder. Since I intended to mix these, that was no bad thing. It ground everything up just fine and I scraped it all out, then cleaned it by running about a half T at a time of rice through the grinder 2 or 3 times. That peanut oil meant more cleaning time. This also went fine, although the 3rd batch of raw rice signaled the return of the hot metal smell. I was pulsing them so it's not like I turned the motor on and left it run for 5 minutes.
At this point I'll say it works; it works well; it'll grind both hard and medium spices (such as cloves, peppercorns, and cumin) to a fine consistency; you can grind at least the softer nuts in it, such as peanuts and cashews. Because these are oily they should most likely be ground by themselves and will require more cleaning afterwards, like 2 or 3 times with the raw rice. Spices should only need one hit of rice to clean up afterwards.
Because of concerns regarding the motor, I'm downgrading one star to 4 stars. If it's still running well in a year, I'll add that back (could be just the "new" wearing off).
If not, if the thing burns out on me as some others have reported, well, that'll be a one star for sure. So watch this space! For now this is functioning as expected and maybe even a little better than expected. We'll see how it holds up.
EDIT: June 18, 2012 - we are 9 months in and this is holding its own. Still working great. Will update again when it hits the full year mark.
Sept 2014 - well past the 1 year mark. It is now 3 years old, and still doing its thing reliably. Upgraded to 5 stars
