This grinder by Cuissential has a nice design. It has good torque so it is not difficult to use. Also it is easy to clean.
It is very simple to adjust the grind size. All you have to do is remove the top screw, handle, and grind lock, then you turn the washer clockwise for a finer grind and counter-clockwise for a larger grind. Just don't loosen it too much or it will come off.
Here is a little guide::
-Coarse Grind - About the size of a particle of sand or larger. For use in a French Press or Percolator
-Medium Grind - Known is "general purpose" grind. This is the size of most store bought coffee and has the size similar to table salt. Used with regular coffee machines, flat bottom filters, or manual drip coffee.
-Fine Coffee Grind -This size is closer to fine pepper then to salt. This is the starting size for espresso coffee.
-Turkish Grind - the finest of all, similar to icing sugar. Used to make turkish coffee.
As a tip, when you are adjusting the grinder to find the right size, you can grind a small bit onto a piece of paper. After a few tries you will hit the exact size you want.
I hope this helps! Good luck...
After being frustrated by how slow it is, I bought the Hario. Before returning this one, I compared the two by setting them to the same grind (set with a boxboard spacer in the grinding mechanism), and then cranking the crank 200 revolutions and weighing the grounds I got from that. I got 25 g from the Cuissential, 50 g from the Hario.
The design has two problems that make it slow: One is that there is a three-blade "propeller" just above the grinding mechanism, presumably to help guide the beans in. But the grinding blades have five channels. That means that only one of the channels in the grinding mechanism lines up well with the opening in the three-blade propeller. Two are about half blocked, one is only a little blocked, and one is completely blocked. If you have small beans, they might still get in the partly-blocked channels, but with big beans, you might only effectively use one of the five channels, or maybe two.
Edit: You could remove the propeller and that may help some, but both I and people commenting on this review haven't found that helps much. I've added a photo with the Hario on the left and the Kuissential on the right. You can see that the sprial feed part is is longer on the Hario. That may be another reason for the difference in performance.Read more ›
- Easy to clean, almost no residue
- Not gonna breakdown or stop working
- Good for those who likes to do French Press. It doesn't take much time to grind
- Small and easy to store
- Particle size is not as consitent as I expected, but acceptable.
- Will take quite a while for large amount of finer grinding.
I had been using an electric burr grinder for my coffee for some time and had just about had it with the grounds leaping out of the plastic container. I had to wipe down my counter every day. The needless extra work coupled with the waste of my coffee It seemed all the grinders I looked at had plastic containers and they all had complaints of static electricity to some degree or another. I tried many fixes to reduce the effects, but found no joy.
Then I found this little gem.
I grind my grounds coarsely, so it being manual was not a deal breaker for me. If I used a fine grind I don't think this would be the grinder for me. But if I want powder I would just use a cheap blade grinder, anyway. The grind is not difficult, but it would be time consuming. It only takes about 20 seconds to grind enough for a french press or about two minutes for a twelve-cup pot of coffee.
The glass container is durable and heavy, and the cap fits on tight to save any left-over grounds for tomorrow. The mechanism comes apart easily to change the grind or wash the pieces. The manual says to wash after every use, but I find I can use it more often between washes without the gears getting gummy. Since it comes apart so completely cleaning is a snap.
Changing the grind entails removing the handle and moving the lock-washer up or down and then locking it in place before re installing the handle. The first couple times I used it I had tightened the handle up too much and then after grinding the additional torque had made it very difficult to dismantle. Now I don't tighten the handle so much and never have an issue.
