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

A wise purchase!


The De'Longhi KG79 is excellent! Looks nice in my kitchen and does a perfect job. Feels sturdy and is well designed. I think it essential that a grinder has a variable grind setting, which this one does. Perfect for my requirements.

Worth every penny


This is a great coffee bean grinder , easy to use, not too noisy, easy to clean and efficient. It will make as little as two cups worth or much more if you wish. Highly recommend it.

Coffee Grinder


I have had a few even from the best named coffee shops, but this one has been the best by far, pop in your beans adjust to suit yourself and away you go, I grind the beans when I want to use them and they are always fresh, bean to cup you cant beat it.

Burr Grinder: Promising start


Only 4 stars as I've only used it a few times so wouldn't be fair to give 5 off the bat.
