A Good Purchase
on November 24, 2017
Overall, I'm pleased with this grinder, which is far better than blade grinders I've owned. This Bodum unit grinds the coffee beans very consistently, is relatively quiet and I like the automatic timer, so I don't have to measure the coffee when putting it in the pot's filter. My only issue is that after a week of daily use, excess coffee grounds starting clogging up inside and fly out onto the counter, creating a mess. However, this is easily fixed in just a few minutes by taking the unit apart and cleaning everything with a brush, such as a toothbrush or makeup foundation brush.
Here's a cleaning TIP I saw on YouTube: After cleaning and reassembling the unit, grind 2-3 tablespoons of Minute Rice through it. The rice kernels do a great job of cleaning out any remaining grounds around the burr gears. I imagine this trick would work for any burr grinder.
