price

Reviews around price (4.77 of 5)

  • I would recommend this to anyone seeking a good grinder for a reasonable price.
  • This one is louder than the last one I
  • If only they would sell the bowls separately for a reasonable price.
  • Good price, larger grinding area than last grinder I owned.
  • Considering the reasonable price and the ease of use, this coffee grinder is a real bargain

look

Reviews around look (4.38 of 5)

  • Oh yeah, I gave it two stars and not one because it is a good looking grinder
  • While this is quite a sharp looking grinder, the grinding is not so sharp
  • the volume is pretty good for a grinder of this type; fast; dishwasher safe parts; nice looking; self-storing cord; seems likely to last
  • Nice looking we have had this a few years but the blade assembly cracked
  • Throughout our ownership the grinder was a good looking accompaniment to our other stainless steel kitchen appliances

steel

Reviews around steel (4.35 of 5)

  • I have used the  KRUPS F203 Electric Spice and Coffee Grinder with Stainless Steel Blades
  • The biggest design flaw is the interior contour of the plastic lid, which has a raised ring intended to fit the circumference of the steel grinding cup, but it just creates a hard to reach ring of coffee grounds that, after a few uses, are coating the entire plastic lid interior and the base, the steel cup, the counter, etc., requiring a lot of cleaning time
  • This grinder has a stainless steel cup that detaches from the housing which is a nice feature.
  • Now in the market for another stainless steel bowl, coffee grinder.
  • Anything lengthier than a five second pulse results in a medium grind caking the walls of the grinding cup to form a very effective cushioning layer which protects the remaining beans from being dashed to pieces against the cold steel

fact

Reviews around fact (3.98 of 5)

  • I love the fact that it comes with a removal canister with lid for storage.
  • We had to return it to Amazon because the ground coffee leaked out as it was being ground
  • We have found that shaking it up/down as it grinds helps produce a very evenly ground coffee
  • I've loved the fact that you can remove the little grinder cup, and that it came with a lid for it, since I grind a few days worth at a time - then I can take just the cup with me when I travel or put it in the fridge to keep the coffee fresh.
  • I also like the fact that it is so easy to use and that you just press down on the bar on the top of the clear plastic lid to get it to grind.

job

Reviews around job (3.88 of 5)

  • This one is a little noisier but does a great job on the grinding!
  • Did I also mention that it does a very mediocre job grinding the beans
  • They simply did a poor job on grinding the beans, even at their finest settings
  • No only does this do a poor job of grinding beans, as it takes forever to get a good fine grind, but the poor design doesn't keep all the coffee grinds contained in the grinding cup
  • This grinder looks great, and it does a good job grinding

size

Reviews around size (3.83 of 5)

  • and you may have inconsistent size of grinds in one batch.
  • Liked the size and clean design of the original so just ordered the same
  • I buy alot of Cusinart products but this coffee Grinder was nice size and look
  • Clean up is also very easy and the compact size makes it easy to store away till the next time you need it

feature

Reviews around feature (3.52 of 5)

  • We had to return it to Amazon because the ground coffee leaked out as it was being ground
  • I bought this to grind flax seeds and like 2 design features: being able to clean the components easily, and the insulated motor which is quieter than my old coffee grinders.
  • It is a shame because it is such a nice feature to have, but clearly Cuisinart missed the mark on this product.
  • Difficult to clean and the detachable bowl feature is eliminated
  • I like the simpleness of use, and the removable bowl with a storage cover is kind of a nice feature

bowl

Reviews around bowl (3.37 of 5)

  • Well on the second one, the stainless bowl (it holds the beans and grinder blade) got stuck on the grinder and would not come off
  • The grinder still works, but it is much more difficult to clean the grinding bowl now
  • Now in the market for another stainless steel bowl, coffee grinder.
  • It doesn't take up much space in my pantry and I like that it comes with a lid for the grinding bowl, so you can always remove the bowl and put the lid on it, if you ground some extra coffee
  • There are two tabs on the bowl assembly that lock into place on the motor base, and they unlock just fine when I twist the bowl

  • This morning this Cuisinart ground up the plastic o-ring at the base of the blades!

  • Would have thought Cuisinart would have been a better product.
  • CUISINART RECALL THIS PRODUCT BEFORE SOMEBODY DOES BURN DOWN THEIR HOUSE AND DIES!!!!!
  • My first Cuisinart appliance purchase, based on what I thought was a quality reputation, but this product is junk.

  • I highly recommend this product and just about any other product with a Cuisinart logo

cup

Reviews around cup (3.01 of 5)

  • What i love about it is that after you grind the beans, you can take the cup out, and pour the grounds out.
  • Coffee grounds would spray out of the stainless steel cup and get all over the countertop when we removed the cover
  • The removable cup is genius, makes getting the grinds into the coffee filter super easy
  • This, just before the motor fried trying to grind roughly half a cup of beans
  • Cord tucks in back of unit and grinds a perfect cup of coffee.

motor

Reviews around motor (1.83 of 5)

way

Reviews around way (1.78 of 5)

  • There's a tiny gap between the removable metal cup and the lid, and while grinding, the coffee grounds work their way between that space, so that when you take off the lid, there is no way to avoid the grounds ending up all over the counter, and generally just all around the surface and edge of the grinder
  • I've tried mixing the grinds with a spoon or my finger half way through grinding to get the coffee dust (fine grounds) mixed with the boulders but to no avail
  • As you see from the picture, the grinder cup doesn’t go all the way to the top of the lid
  • It doesn't completely grind all of the beans, even with small amounts grounds work their way under the lip and get all over the place.
  • When grinding the coffee beans, it pushes the ground coffee up and to the sides, and without a seal on the lid, some coffee does make its way to the top and overflows, which frustrates my wife

design flaw

Reviews around design flaw (1.52 of 5)

  • It seems like that's a simple design flaw that could be corrected.
  • (A brush would probably work just as well or better than a plastic spoon.
  • and I strangely enough cannot find my warranty registrations on their website
  • I think this is a design flaw, as I exchanged my first one for a replacement, and now my second one is having the exact same problem.

spice

Reviews around spice (1.35 of 5)

  • However if you are grinding both coffee and spices in the same unit then go with the Cuisinart
  • To the person who said that the machine didn't grind her spices evenly, I say, "it's not meant for spices - it's meant for coffee"
  • I do not use it daily, as it is my grinder for making powders and grinding spices
  • and I strangely enough cannot find my warranty registrations on their website
  • So you can grind nuts or spices in it then clean thoroughly vs ruining your next few batches of coffee

seed

Reviews around seed (1.22 of 5)

  • , it's relatively quiet but when I pulled it out today to grind some flax seeds, the basket would not come off
  • I bought this to grind flax seeds and like 2 design features: being able to clean the components easily, and the insulated motor which is quieter than my old coffee grinders.
  • I was hoping to be able to grind flax seeds and herbs as well as coffee without mixing flavors (plastic retains flavor which I didn't want)
  • I used it just about everyday to grind coffee beans (once to grind coriander seeds).
  • Although I have found some acceptable uses for this device, it is really only useful as a seed or herb "pre-grinder", that is, to start grinding materials that will be finished in one of my other grinders
