Reviews around look (5.00 of 5)

  • Slick looking, just a dial to change the texture, another dial to change the cup size, it works great.
  • It's not terribly noisy (any electric grinder will be loud), it's not messy as some reviews said, and as an extra bonus, it's a nice looking little machine
  • My criteria were Burr wheel, reasonable price, compact size, clean looks, easy to use
  • I like the look and ease of use but wished it would grind finer for espresso.
  • does a great job grinding without creating a mess and has a great modern look.

Reviews around price (4.66 of 5)

  • just right, I find this is the best low price grinder I have had yet
  • This burr grinder is the right price, it looks very nice, it works very well.
  • My two upgrade wishes would be a true anti-static plastic container (it makes a static-e mess at times) and being able to get a finer grind for espresso
  • My criteria were Burr wheel, reasonable price, compact size, clean looks, easy to use
  • A vastly superior grinder to many that I have purchased - well worth the price.

Reviews around product (3.59 of 5)

  • The product works fine and is relatively easy to clean.
  • It is an excellent product, easy to use and easy to clean
  • But this product is so awful I have to warn others: don't buy it.
  • Overall I think the DeLonghi Grinder is a well designed product which I'd recommend.
  • This product, pretty much from the start, was a failure.

Reviews around quality (3.58 of 5)

  • If you need a coarser more uniform grind, invest in a quality conical burr grinder like a Baratza Encore.
  • , it doesn't spill grinds all over and doesn't seem very static-y like other containers can
  • Poor quality
  • and I'm glad I did; this grinder elevated the quality of my espresso instantly
  • then I would have if I had just went with a better quality coffee grinder to begin with

Reviews around burr (3.41 of 5)

  • The difference in grind was also noticeable in the quality of the crema on the shots produced from each grinder (using same beans).Disappointed that I'll have to leap for a more expensive burr grinder for espresso, but I'll be keeping this DeLonghi on hand as it does produce a consistent coarse grind that's good for other brew methods.
  • From the reviews, I'm not sure there IS a decent burr grinder out there other than manual
  • Cheapest burr grinder I could find, but she's still cranking away.
  • All in all, a great burr grinder, it's just really really messy.
  • Grab my coffee bean container, open it, pick up and invert the coffee grinder pouring all the coffee beans (and some partially ground ones, back into the coffee bean jar, watch the burring grinding wheel fall out and into the coffee jar.

Reviews around cup (3.02 of 5)

  • one year and six month of use in a single person house hold making no more then 2 cup on the busiest day this machine had and the motor burned up...it bogged down while i was out of the room and just quit since it was past
  • The cup into which the grind is dispensed is cracking along the top seam for absolutely no good reason--I'm gentle with my kitchen stuff
  • I have one other DeLonghi appliance, a 60 cup coffee maker that I LIKE
  • Because it can grind 12 cups, because it was easy to adjust grinds
  • I like my coffee from an the Bialetti Moka Express or if i am really honing in for a perfect cup I will use an Aeropress

Reviews around ground (3.01 of 5)

  • Does grind fairly consistent grounds and operation is straight forward
  • The grounds are very inconsistent and don't look much better than a blade grinder
  • I now use a Shark or computer vac, but while it does remove unwanted grounds in the machine, it is a major hassle
  • (you will not get coarse or fine grounds from this)Difficult to clean
  • Because it means that every time you grind, you are going to end up with a mess as fine grounds that have become trapped behind the bin are spilled all over your counter

Reviews around design (2.85 of 5)

  • poorly designed, messy, if the lid isn't just right it shuts off really not a convenient quick little grinder
  • Pros, compared to the Cuisinart: quieter operation; better contained bin; better range of grinds (coarse is coarser, albeit with fine grounds included); more compact design; smoke-colored plastic so the clinging grinds aren't as visible; slightly shorter grind time; emptying grounds is not quite as messy
  • My husband already gets grinds everywhere, but the design made it ten times worse
  • The static problem, coupled with the strange hopper/chute design means that you'll end up wiping your counters every day after use and every other time you walk by.
  • There is critical design flaw with this grinder in that it shuts down if everything is not completely clean on the safety sensors.

Reviews around set (2.81 of 5)

  • Google "delonghi burr grinder hack" and you'll find out that the most fine setting is not fine enough for espresso
  • If you want a coarse grind for a french press you may be disappointed, the coarse setting is still finer than I would typically use for french press coffee.
  • It seems that the coarse setting grinds the coffee about as fine as the finer settings which was a surprise to me.
  • Does not grind evenly, I get plenty of little coffee particles even in the coarse setting
  • Even the setting for a coarse grind on this grinder is pretty fine, the fine grind setting is very fine and could be used easily for espresso machines.

Reviews around bean (2.04 of 5)

  • Works great to grind up my coffee beans to fine espresso dust
  • Also, we love the aroma and taste of fresh ground coffee beans
  • I was so excited to buy this grinder and sooo disappointed when I realized I'm not able to grind my coffee beans today
  • If the top bin had less than enough beans to grind, it will run empty
  • Grinds coffee beans fine enough to be used in an espresso machine.

Reviews around container (1.61 of 5)

  • Second, the container for the grounds is just plain messy
  • My two upgrade wishes would be a true anti-static plastic container (it makes a static-e mess at times) and being able to get a finer grind for espresso
  • That bottom container isn't the most durable, either.

Reviews around plastic (1.51 of 5)

  • I got so frustrated with the ground coffee accumulation that I bought a cheap plastic tray to sit my coffee grinder and coffee maker in, just to contain the ground coffee accumulation within the tray.
  • My two upgrade wishes would be a true anti-static plastic container (it makes a static-e mess at times) and being able to get a finer grind for espresso
  • I wish the big manufacturers would look to go back to the old way and use glass or find another static-free plastic for kitchen devices or maybe even the hard resins like the cheaper watch crystals.
  • First month the handle on the brew basket broke, made of hollow plastic and simply split down the middle
  • The grinder hopper is plastic, which doesn't really seem like a big deal, until you grind for the first time.

Reviews around coffee grind (1.17 of 5)

  • The real problem is that this grinder spits coffee grinds EVERYWHERE!
  • Love it, coffee grinds really well, and it grinds faster than my old grinder.
  • The coffee grinds get all over the place...it is almost like they have a static charge after being ground in the machine.
  • My husband is very particular about his coffee grind and especially getting consistent grinds to brew on his Gaggia Baby

Reviews around electricity (1.00 of 5)

  • The plastic container on the DeLonghi + fine dust + static electricity = headache.
  • And I have the same problems as others with static electricity
  • Yes, static electricity does cause the grinds to be a bit messy.
  • coffee ending up all over the place ("due to static electricity"

  • My two upgrade wishes would be a true anti-static plastic container (it makes a static-e mess at times) and being able to get a finer grind for espresso
  • So while this will give you a passable espresso grind, it will also give you some headaches and a nice mess every time you use it
  • We were using coarse grind on a daily basis, with occasional changes to espresso grind
  • The espresso grind is the setting we both use most & it is evenly and perfectly grinded every time.

Reviews around coffee dust (1.00 of 5)

  • Due to the excessive 'safety' features, you cannot get into the machine to clean out the oily coffee dust residue clogging things
  • There will always be traces of old coffee dust which are impossible to remove from the internals of the DeLonghi, which would be OK if it were the only issue, but I certainly do prefer having a completely clean machine
  • And unlike purchased ground coffee there is a fair share of coffee dust
  • Due to the overly powerful motor that does not SHAVE the beans, but decimates them, creating all the coffee dust, this machine CLOGS
  • You end up with coffee dust on your counters, and stuck to the sides and lid of the collection box

Reviews around year (1.00 of 5)

  • I hate to do that, but I'm frustrated by how frequently is doesn't work as it should
  • The only criticism is that the receptacle for the grounds is very static-y and hard to get all the grounds out of.
  • At first this thing was amazing, but I am disappointed it lasted me exactly 3 years and then crapped out
  • My two upgrade wishes would be a true anti-static plastic container (it makes a static-e mess at times) and being able to get a finer grind for espresso
  • In this era of planned obsolescence, 4 1/2 years for $53 isn't too bad

  • When I tried to ground two pounds of coffee (about 3 pots worth fit at a time), it overheated, and now does not work
  • Owned the first one for 9 years and had no problems with it until someone in my family tried grinding a pound of coffee (or more) at one
