Blade Grinder Disguised as a Burr Grinder


I bought this grinder for only $10 (!), but I wish I could get my money back. The packaging boasts precision milling system crushes beans for more uniform results. I have found the opposite to be true. (Should you care? Check Coffee ...

No better than a blade grinder, but twice the price.

There's Nothing Like a Little Morning Bump and Grind

Turns spices to powder quite well, when it wants to.

The Best blade grinder I've ever used


I have owned several blade-type grinders over the years. I've owned Braun, Krups, La Pavoni, Melitta, and others. I grind coffee every morning, so they get a regular workout, and they usually wear out after a few years of use. I like a very fine ...

Excellent grind consistency, fast, powerful, quiet.

Small amount of static.

Product Specifications

Savor the taste of a freshly ground bean brew from this precise milling system that crushes coffee beans within seconds. No more guesswork! Dial adjusts so you can set the texture exactly the way you want - from very fine Turkish blend to coarse percolator grind. Dual safety mechanism ensures that the unit will not operate unless the top cover is closed and the ground coffee receptacle is in place.
