Krups GVX1-14 Burr Grinder, Black. Grinding beans just before brewing ensures the best flavor. The best method of grinding is with a Krups burr grinder which produces a highly controllable texture without overheating the beans, 17 position fineness select
This smartly designed, finely tunable burr coffee grinder from Krups is built on the premise that good coffee starts with the freshest, most appropriate grind. Equipped with an expert-quality burr milling system, the machine turns out very consistent grounds with minimal heat for the best-tasting coffee. Its coarseness dial offers 17 distinct settings to create precisely the right grind for the occasion, brewing method, and kind of bean. In addition, the quantity dial, ranging from 2 to 12 cups, lets you grind no more coffee than you need, which helps preserve fresh aroma and flavor.
Structurally handsome and easy to use, the grinder features a large transparent bean hopper with a clearly marked "max" line. The grounds container, also transparent, is lidded and removable for tidy transport to the espresso machine or French press. Simple maintenance is also a boon here--the burr removes for easy cleanup and Krups includes a cleaning brush for the hopper. Shiny and matte black with silver accents, the grinder looks dashing on the countertop without drawing excess attention to itself. It stands 10-1/2 by 4-3/4 by 5-3/4 inches and carries a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

(Edited to remove a misconception about the auto shutoff.)
My wife and I grind our coffee every morning. Let's call each use a 'cycle'. I've purchased two of these units. The first worked well for about 300 cycles. . . unfortunately it died soon after the expiration of the warrantee, so I tossed it and purchased another, hoping that I just got a bad motor in the first unit.
The replacement only lasted 3 months (call it 70 cycles) before giving up the ghost. I'm sending this unit to the service center, hoping that the problem is fixed, or a replacement is sent. My opinion is that the "thermal fuse" has blown and it requires service at the Krupps svc. center to fix it. The prior failure was identical to this one and I feel this model is not cooled properly, or that the motor is undersized for the task, or both.
Bottom line - You get what you pay for, and this unit is too cheap to last.
AFTER SENDING MY SECOND UNIT TO THE KRUPPS SVC CENTER, A BRAND NEW UNIT WAS SENT TO ME AS REPLACEMENT FOR THE NON-WORKING UNIT. SO THE WARRANTEE IS HONORED.
One other thing: this cone grinder reminds me of the one Salton used to produce back in the 80s. That one was a little smaller, had a more durable container for the ground coffee but produced a lot more powder and didn't have the cup adjustment that's really just a timer. I recall paying a little over $20 for that one so I guess factoring for inflation and time, the price is about right for the Krups. For the price and function, I think it's worth it.
Grinder worked well for about one month. Coffee started overheating to the point that, after 3 months, acrid smoke emanates from the hopper. At five months there was fear that it would catch on fire. At six months the grinder completely jammed and will no longer run. After having a Braun give us 12 years of service for this Krups to crater after 6 months is a total failure in this product class.
Do not buy this product!
This grinder replaced a Braun that we had used for over 12 years, but the change in the Braun to a fixed hopper left us looking for something else. The Krups is incredibly quiet compared to the Braun and the settings are even easier to use. Grind coarseness is set by a knob on the side and can be changed at will. The amount of coffee ground is set by a knob on the front and is very accurate for the way we like our coffee. The hopper slides out and is narrower making it easier to empty into our coffee machine without spilling grounds. Yes, coffee sticks to the plastic hopper, but it rinses off easily and is ready for the next grinding chore quickly. We are very happy with this machine.
