Loved It But It Fell Apart


I used this grinder every day for two years. One day I turned it on and the on/off switch just fell into the body of the machine. The motor had also burned out. I only used it for coffee beans, and treated it gently. As much as I loved it, I will...

The reason I bought this product was b/c I needed a conical burr grinder to grind the steel cut oatmeal for my 7 month old stage 1 first food oatmeal. The Turkish coffee setting is great, however, the cleaning is ackward. It is possible something was...

Recommended with reservations.


Before purchasing the Breville Conical Burr Grinder Model BCG450XL, I was using a cheap Cuisinart blade type grinder for my coffee. Burr grinders are much more efficient at grinding coffee then blade types, but I'm not sure if this Breville model is...

CoffeeGeek - Breville BCG450XL Grinder - Ash Furrow's Review


This is my first non-whirly-blade grinder.

When switching granularity, there are stale beans caught in the inner workings that are pushed out, so you get some stale espresso grinds in your press and vice versa ; The grinds you get on "espresso" or even "turkish" settings are laughable. Don't...

Buy it!


I have used this grinder every day for at least two years. It is my first grinder so I have nothing with which I can compare it. I use a Keurig single cup machine and only brew one cup at a time. I also use a Breville Cafe Roma espresso machine almost...

A good grinder indeed


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.

Easy to use

Tricky to clean

CoffeeGeek - Breville BCG450XL Grinder - Mick Paulin's Review


I have bought a BCK450XL grinder 3 months ago, I liked it so much that I bought another one for my girlfriend.

Consistent grind size, good choice in grind size

Not enough time on the timer to grind lets say, a 12 cups coffee maker
