I received the Breville grinder about 2 weeks ago and have been using it about every other day since then. Since I was stepping up from a blade grinder, the improvement has been remarkable. Much better tasting coffee and honestly, less noise than the blade grinder I was using. That's not to say the thing is silent, just less noisy than my alternative.I had read some complaints about static causing the grinds to stick in the hopper and while there seems to always be a small amount that doesn't want to come out, it is far less than I was led to believe and really isn't even worth cleaning out.The grind so far has been consistent, although I will say that I only use it for drip coffee as I don't have an espresso machine.Cleanup has been very easy as there are only a few parts to remove and wiping things with a damp paper towel and letting them air-dry has been enough so far.In conclusion, I would highly recommend the Breville to anyone looking to step up from the atrocious blade grinders and not break the bank at the same time. It's efficient, stylish on the counter and will vastly improve the quality of your morning coffee.

A little messy and a little too little

I like fresh coffee and I grind every day. It might be the climate, but during grinding a fair amount of static charge is generated causing the grinds to "jump" out of the recepticle when I open it. I also have to run two grinding cycles for a sufficient amount of grinds to brew the strong coffee I prefer. That said, I am very happy with the consistency of the fineness of the grinds.

It's an o.k. grinder
from North Carolina
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Holley, NY
I have used this grinder every day for at least two years. It is my first grinder so I have nothing with which I can compare it. I use a Keurig single cup machine and only brew one cup at a time. I also use a Breville Cafe Roma espresso machine almost daily. The grinder does great for either type of coffee, and for the most part, is easy to clean. The only two issues I have are the location and shape of the grind tray, and the inability to remove the internal grinder for cleaning. Other than that, this machine is great and I recommend it.

getting nice non-sludgy French coffee
By el gordo

About Me Coffee Aficionado
I bought this for making French press coffee, so I needed a consistent course grind. The Breville did this. Very little sludge left behind. I like the looks of it and how easy it is to operate - one button and voila. It's good entertainment for the kids as well :). Not as noisy as a blade grinder I had (Krups). Only knock I have against it - a bit messy to transfer the grinds.
Service and delivery comments:
- quick delivery; all in excellent condition. Will definitely buy from ABT again
from Upstate, NY
The grinder works perfect. The timer gets warm if left plugged in, just unplug from the outlet. Wouldn't know it was a coffee grinder, it looks great on the counter.
Good mid-range grinder, 4.5 stars.
from Corvallis, OR
I use mine to grind 2-4 scoops a day, and after 5 months, not a single glitch. While there is a very small layer of fines in the bottom of my shot cup (I grind a low-oil medium roast bean at the 3rd "click" of the Espresso grind setting), I suspect it isn't going to get much better, unless you pony up the Lira for a Rancilio or Mazzer. Getting the grounds out of the container can be a little messy, as it is a slightly irregular shape. Static has not been an issue. Burr heating during consecutive grind cycles has not been an issue. My machines include a Krups 964, a Krups FNC Novo 3000, and a Breville BES820XL.
Great grinder [...]
I am on a pretty tight budget and researched extensively before purchasing this unit. For the price, I could not find a better grinder.
ABT was a real pleasure to have for a vendor: fast, efficient, they sent an email with the UPS tracking number. Great Company.
Awkward drawer, stray grounds keep it from re-inserting all the way, needs frequent cleaning, flimsy lid, doesn't pour easily but still like the performance overall. Consistent grind size & better flavor than blade type.
ABT had item in stock at fair price, free shipping, fast delivery -- Thanks!
Great grinder for the price

This is the best grinder I have ever owned.
an excellent grinder for everyday use
from Gaithersburg, MD
The grinder is sturdily built and attractively designed. It is excellent for everyday needs for household use. The loading hopper and grind receiver could be somewhat larger. I don't know why the amount-to-grind control is calibrated in seconds rather than tablespoons, cups, or other volumetric amount, but that's a minor matter. Overall I'm very satisfied with it.
The online ordering, and delivery were easy, prompt, and without any hangups.
