Expensive Paper Weight

 

Received one of these for Christmas. Used it 3 times, and the motor quit. Called Cuisinart figuring they would warranty it and replace/repair it. Nope. Customer Service told me to "throw it away". Don't buy this unless you want to spend a lot of money...

Lots Of Stainless Steel ; Pretty To Look At

Motor Burned Up ; Unreliable

so quiet!

 

I'm amazed how quiet this is. My husband loves coffee and makes it all of the time. Now the cats don't "explode" when he cranks it up.

Low noise

It's My Spice Grinder

 

I've been using this exclusively for spices as I have another grinder for coffee beans, and have only good to say about this product. Maybe a previous reviewer got a defective model, which can occur in any brand. Also, because of the difference in oils...

Not Just For Coffee Anymore!

 

Needing a really good grinder for dried herbs as well as needing one for my coffee, I purchased two of these grinders. I threw some peppercorns, dried rosemary, and a few other herbs into the first grinder and was able to make the best rub I have ever...

I'm talkin bout the grind!

 

Horrible grinder, sub-par at best.My husband and I received this as a wedding gift in October. It looks great, matches our coffee maker, etc. I will admit that initially we made an err in judgement and did not review grinders before ...

Looks nice, small footprint

Not very reliable

Not too shabby!

 

I really love this grinder. It is easy to use and the thing I love about it most is the removable grinder cup. It's Awesome! I have had mine for a few years now and it still works like it is brand new.
