Breville Conical Burr Grinder BCG450XL
Beautifully designed, this conical burr grinder features adjustable settings for various grind options. The perfect alternative to imprecise blade grinders. Choose from ultra-fine for Turkish coffee or large and coarse for percolators. The settings offer consistently shaped grinds and even extraction while generating minimal heat, which is the key to producing flavorful coffee. In addition, the unit's metal conical burrs preserve more natural bean flavor than blade drivers due to the slower grind nature. The grinder comes equipped with a removable bean hopper that holds 1/2 pound of coffee beans, and its stainless-steel/polymer base offers start and stop control, as well as an on/off switch. Other highlights include a variable timer with 10 to 30 seconds of grind time, anti-static technology, and a removable burr for convenient cleaning.
The Breville brand became a household name during the early 1980's when Breville invented and introduced the sandwich toaster to a hungry public.
Today, Breville still leads the way with its sandwich toaster range, but the Breville name is now also synonymous with Kettles, Toasters and Irons, as well as a range of food preparation products such as Blenders, Food Processors, Juicers and many others.
Breville is committed to delivering great products for everyone, with an aim to offer a range of high-quality, well-designed and exciting kitchen appliances that cover a range of different needs and budgets.

***November 20, 2012 ...we have had this almost a year and we still love it. It's still grinding exactly how it's supposed to.
For the price range I think this is a fantastic grinder. Relatively quiet (for what it is), makes a decently uniform grind, and the static free cup, while not completely static free, is a huge improvement over the three other burr grinders I have used. I no longer have grounds flying all around my kitchen and can actually dump the grounds straight from the cup into my filter without having some of them end up in the water reservoir of my drip machine.
For me this is a great solution without having to spend too much but three things I'd point out for others are:
- The 30 second timer works for me as I normally make only one or tow cups at a time. If I was making a full pot on a regular basis I imagine I'd soon tire of having to grind through two or three cycles just to produce enough. Not a frequent enough concern for me based on my habits but it might be for you.
- As others have mentioned, I would not consider the grind fine enough for espresso or Turkish. I would say this makes a decently uniform "very fine" grind but probably falls just short of true espresso grind for the purist. I don't own an espresso machine so, again, not a concern for me personally.
- I'm using this to "dose" my grounds so I dump the cup entirely out into my filter. If I wanted to grind more than I need and then scoop the grinds from the cup I would be annoyed (like others) at the irregular shape of the cup. Although I don't understand why anyone would leave anything behind in the cup.Read more ›
The product is very solid and I was impressed with the quality of the grinder itself when I inspected it during the setup process. The anti-static grind cup is pretty good too -- not entirely static-free, but close enough considering it is plastic. Actually the whole machine is fairly solid for a popularly priced grinder.
Last, but not least, I was VERY happy for once that the Canadian price was close to the US price. I expect to pay more for products in Canada, but the difference most of the time keeps me from ordering and makes me say bad words :-)
Espresso, not so great. If you're using a pressurized portafilter it'll be ok. A standard portafilter, not so much. It just doesn't grind fine enough, also the size of the grinds isn't particularly consistent.
To my suprise, this is NOT what Breville Canada is doing. They've instead told me to take the item to a service centre (the nearest one is six hours from Winnipeg) or that I can order parts online using my Visa or Mastercard.
DO NOT BUY THIS GRINDER! Zero stars.
