First one failed. Replacement seems fine.


HINT - If your unit fails and it is still under warranty, DO NOT return it to NewEgg. Go directly through the manufacturer. DeLonghi requires that you send back the electrical cord only - a lot less expensive than sending back the entire grinder (as...

I bought this unit to replace a 5-year old Cuisinart DBM-8, which had failed. The DeLonghi is quieter (not that important to me) and although there is an issue with static electricity, it is not nearly as severe as it was with the Cuisinart. So far, I...

The first unit that arrived did not work at all. The blue light on the on/off switch lit up, but nothing else happened - the machine was totally silent. I had to return it for a replacement. *See the hint below

Excellent machine


Not sure why people are saying that this doesn't grind fine enough for espresso - I actually had to use a lower setting as it was too fine at the maximum!!Consistent grounds, wee bit noisy (I like that) and compact - perfect for the price too!Only...

Excellent burr grinder at unbeatable price


We didn't think we could get a burr grinder at such an affordable price but the KG79 is a really excellent grinder producing a very consistent grind, even for espresso. Some reviewers have said that it doesn't grind fine enough for espresso but it's...

Not suitable for Expresso


I agree with others that this does not grind fine enough for expresso. I bought it to replace a Krups GVX2 on which the start button failed (as reported by many others). I have a very nice de'Longhi expresso machine so I was surprised that this did not...

Not good


Did a resonable (not brilliant) job of grinding fairly coarse coffee on it's finest setting. Did this twice before smoking and burning out. If it had not burned out I don't think I would ever have been happy with it really. Would not buy again.

De'Longhi KG79 Professional Burr Grinder


Two tips. If the grinder does not switch on, check that the coffee container lid is on correctly, If not fitted, the grinder safety device stops the grinder operating. Also, you may find the grinder will not grind beans fine, but has a coarse grind...

Good buy


Good grinder with a wide range of easily adjusted settings. Grinds fine enough for espresso. Is a little noisy and the container for the ground coffee does suffer from static. Is easy to clean & takes up little room. Can be set to grind as little or as...
