Does the job!


I seem to have to tap the side during grinding to keep the grind coinsistant. this is not a burr grinder but a inexspensive solution.

Easy to use and clean. The lights are nice for keeping a consistant grind day to day

The lights take some getting use to. doesn't always do consistant grinding throughout a batch

My experience with the DeLonghi DCG39

Solid coffee grinder for daily use

The indicator lights

Uneven grinding, grounds stick to interior

Easy to use without mess

Burned out within a year - apparently a bean got wedged

DeLonghi DCG39 Grinder-not just for coffee!


I actually received this electric bladed coffee grinder as a gift. I don't drink coffee, so if you are wanting to read a review about how the coffee tastes when retrieved from this unit, check out the other three reviews instead. If you want to know...

Ignore the Lights... Use Your Eyes and Ears


Shape makes it easy to hold. Cord winds up manually for storage.

The grind consistency lights seem to be there for looks alone.

DeLonghi Coffee Grinder


It grinds coffee beans, but it is difficult to empty ground coffee (due to large plastic area in the interior) and the deep cavity is difficult to clean. Static electricity and large amount of plastic in cavity cause the ground coffee to cling to...

Large capacity for ground coffee

Too much plastic in grind area.
