Breville Coffee Grinder


Much quieter and definitely higher quality than others we have used. Much less mess. Breville seems consistent for high quality products and this one is.

Great grinder but...


This grinder does an amazing job-my only complaint is that you can't pour your ground coffee out without making a mess.

Breville Burr Grinder


Grinder works well and is very quiet. Grinds beans to same degree and volume every time. Only complaint is static buildup that can be remedied by waiting ten minutes after grinding. We live in dry climate so maybe adds to static level.

After having several, ahem, difficulties, with other bean grinders, my husband and I decided to purchase this product. It was kind of a splurge for us so thank goodness it does such a good job. It stores easily and has a small footprint, ...
