There are some pluses and minuses to this grinder first let me go over the minuses. The grinder powders some of the grind even on medium. Although I don't want to make it to course, I think that it could do better with a more consistent grind instead of creating a lot of powder that it does on medium. This also causes an issue with the reservoir that it goes into. it cakes on the inside and is hard to get out and requires you to use that little brush. That's really a hassle, and to get it out of the reservoir and into the filter of the coffee pot is another tricky deal. I have found that I have to take my number 4 cone filter and put around the top of the reservoir over all 4 corners (and it just fits) and turn it upside down and rap on it to get the coffee out of it before putting it into the plastic holder and back into the coffee pot before I can brew a cup of coffee. It won't just pour out easily as it cake and binds up inside and will end up spilling outside of the cone filter and getting inside the plastic part of your coffee pot if you don't do it this way. It also tends to blow some loose crumbs around the hole that it goes into the reservoir down onto the base of the unit which require some additional cleaning and it also sticks to the lid pretty bad. The reservoir is also very hard to align perfectly to get it to slide back into place on the unit as it does not have an adequate guide to make it smooth to return to its proper position to grind more coffee, even if you feel you have it perfectly straight. I usually have to take about 4-5 tries to get it back in position. Now on the pluses side of this unit. It does make a perfectly good pot of coffee with my 14 cup coffee maker on the 14 cup setting to grind a pot of coffee. The Auto Stop feature is an excellent plus and the bean Hopper I've discovered will hold an entire 12 oz bag of beans with just enough room to get the lid comfortably back on. It is designed well as far as how much space the unit takes up and does have a good appearance and it is very easy to adjust the desired grind by turning the hopper to the desired grind you require. I only brew up my regular Joe so I can't comment as to the expresso required French Press type of grind as I don't use this process. I do feel it would be great for that since it does grind the medium grind up very fine. For its price point and overall workability it is in my opinion a well recommended buy. Also on the negative side don't press the start button to grind up coffee unless everyone's awake or you're going to wake everyone in the entire house. it is very loud!
After every other grind it will not start. We empty it completely, clean it completely, and sometimes it starts after that. It is soooo frustrating that we end up using our old "simple" grinder. I checked that it's not easy to clean because it is such a hassle after every grind. Is there an answer to this? We have had the grinder only about 2 weeks and use it on the weekend only. Help!
This product was purchased to complement the new Cuisinart coffee maker/hot water heater we also purchased. Set-up was very easy and the directions for operation were very clear! The settings indicator is easy to adjust as is cleaning the unit. Its operation was very effective in grounding the beans to the perfect consistency needed to make the ideal pot of coffee for my wife and I! It is loud (not too many grinders aren't) but demonstrated its motor had the power, and the blades were very strong, to ensure consistent grinding. In all, we have been very pleased with Cuisinart products and this fine addition to our collection proudly sits next to our coffee maker and we anticipate many years of reliable service. We also registered the product with Cuisinart to activate the warranty should it ever require repair. In all, great product, OEM warranty and great coffee! Highly recommended!
