Bodum BISTRO 1093 Electric Burr Coffee Grinder Reviews

Overall, I'm pleased with this coffee grinder. It replaces a Bodum grinder I've used for about 8 years. This unit grinds nicely with a good gradation of grinds. It has pre-set grinding times (up to 20 seconds), which is both good and bad. The 20 second grind is perfect for our morning pot, but if you need a larger quantity you have to grind again, as Bodum warns against overheating the motor with multiple long times. Since our previous grinder, Bodum has corrected two design flaws. The vessel into which the grinds fall is now glass, not plastic. There is, therefore, less static and "fly away" coffee. Secondly, the ground coffee falls into the top of this glass vessel not into the upper back. This eliminates the grounds falling behind the vessel as the old one did. Orange was the only color available. We keep ours in the cupboard, so the appearance is not an issue. As usual, the Zappos.com ordering and shipping were flawless, package was received the next day, and I was happy! Thanks, Zappos.com, and Happy Holidays.

Without a doubt this was the worst coffee grinder we have ever used. You can not grind beans without having a mess all over your counter top. I threw it away after a month of having to clean my counter after every use. What a waste of money!

I am very pleased with the Bistro 1093 Burr Coffee Grinder. It is very easy to use and makes much better coffee than the regular type coffee grinder. The few negative comments that were expressed on the internet were obviously by folks that had not read the directions and were not using it properly.

Nice coffee grinder. Simple to set up and easy to use. Huge improvement over my old blade grinder.

Fantastic grinder! If you are in the market, look no further. The only problem I'm having is that this grinder is leading me to investigate other means of brewing the beans. With such a consistent grind and wide range of settings...I'm looking beyond the French press for the 1st time.

Good shipping from Zappos and delivery by UPS. Maybe just my unit, but for making drip grind, I need to have it set for 'French press' or the result is too fine. The 20 second limit makes just enough for my pot. Recommended? Yes, as long as you don't need a truly coarse grind.

Very disappointed. EVERY time I use ithis grinder, the beans jam up the mechanism. Just not a pleasant or graceful process. I guess one star is appropriate because the grinder is quieter than any other I have used.
