Oh I love everything about this grinder. It's one of the quietest grinders I have ever heard. Very well built with a lot of thought into usable features. My first grind and brew was perfect. Love it.

A great grinder for the price! It offers a wide range of grind settings and is very easy to use. Love the flexibility to grind into the included canister, directly into a filter basket or best of all, into the portafilter of my espresso machine! Looks great, too. Add Zappos' consistently flawless service, and you have a "slam dunk."

I love this grinder! I like that the hopper holds one pound of coffee and the ease of operation. It looks really nice in my kitchen. Operating any equipment prior to coffee, hmm, but this does the job. Zappos great service as usual; best on internet.

A great design and an excellent value for a dose and brewing grinder. There are some redundant controls (such as separate strength and amount adjustments), but that's a minor complaint. The magnetic catch for the bin cup is a great idea. Electronically, I'd rather the amounts on the digital panel simply read in grams/oz. or tablespoons instead of shots and cups. I do have one major concern though. When running, the grinder does emit an odor of burning electronics. I am assuming it's because the item is brand new and it will go away. I do own and operate a roasting coffee house and use large MACAP grinders. The grind quality and consistency of this Breville unit is certainly on-par with the best

The Breville Smart Grinder is my first burr grinder. I absolutely love it! It is stylish looking and compact. It is easy to change from coarse to fine grind, with 25 adjustments. And just as easy to change from 1 shot to 2 or more shots--with the ability to adjust your dose up or down in increments. Maybe best of all, there is no coffee grind mess, not even one little ground! Another nifty feature is that it holds a portafilter and grinds right into it with no mess.

Money well spent! I've never owned a burr grinder, only the low-tech Krups. This machine is very easy to use. The first pot of coffee I made blew my mind! Same coffee beans I've always used (Starbucks Gold Coast, Anniversary Blend) and the results we're very noticeably different. It had a rich mouth feel, bolder flavor, and much less acidic than I was used to. It very much improved the taste of already delicious coffee. It is great looking and easy to use. The only thing I've noticed that I don't love, is the lid that covers the cup that the coffee is ground into can cause a tiny bit of spillage. Very little, but it still happens. I just don't use the lid while grinding and no mess! Also, with every other grinder I've ever used there is a problem with static. Not with this machine. The coffee slides right out with no mess. Very happy!

Sweet. I set it on the recommended grind setting for metal espresso filter and worked perfectly. Relatively quiet. Awesome customer service from Zappos!

I absolutely love this grinder! It is so easy to use and clean. You can adjust for the perfect grind and it quietly delivers. The grinds do not fly all over like other machines can - everything is neat and controlled. Amazingly, the coffee even tastes better! The price may seem hefty but this is a quality product. So do not hesitate to purchase as you will not be disappointed.

So far so good. We have been successfully using this grinder for drip and espresso for just over a month or so without complications. The LCD is bright and easy to read and you can fine tune your grind to meet your needs. It is easy to remove the burr for cleaning. All the extra attachments were the bigger deciding factor for me and in my opinion justify the extra cost. We have a Breville Juicer, Breville Espresso machine and this grinder. We have been pleased with the brand.

I've had this grinder for 19 months. For 18 months it worked beautifully, grinding coarse for cold brew and fine for the Aeropress. And then it died. No matter what I try to put through it now, it just clicks. It sounds as though it has plastic gears in its transmission and it is jumping teeth. It's impossible to take it apart for a look without destroying it further. :(
