I bought this grinder because we have had the same one at work for over a year. I was impressed by its appearance, function, and durability in a commercial application. This unit is small, unobtrusively attractive, relatively quiet compared to the one it replaced, and grinds quickly. The blade is sharp! Highly recommended.

I had a Braun grinder, and after 25 years it died on me. I looked for a replacement and they had stopped making coffee grinders. I looked everywhere thought that I'd try Black & Decker - because they make a good coffee maker - but when I got it it was poorly designed and cheaply made. Then I saw the Krups grinder at Zappos - and it's almost identical to my old faithful Braun plus it has a larger capacity and it's quieter. As a coffee fanatic I highly recommend this grinder.

I bought my first Krups grinder like this one 25 years ago and it still runs perfect. But I can tell this one is not the same. But what the heck. That's life. Everything made in China now, which is not a bad thing...it's just that it lacks the deep sense of quality the German made Krups has. Gets the job done and the price is right. Zappos is the best place to shop in the entire world.

My wife and I received our Krups 203 grinder as a wedding gift almost 20 years ago. We've used it almost daily since then -- grinding, then turning over and tapping it hard on the counter every morning. That's over 7,000 grinds! It is still going strong and is now the longest lasting electric appliance in our kitchen inventory. I wish more appliances were designed this well.

I found this little machine at an outlet store several weeks ago. All I needed to know was it was made by "Krups"! Of course, I had to figure it out by myself what it did. What it was. I could not find a sales clerk who knew what it was. I love coffee! Ever since I was a boy. I followed the different coffees as they changed in America. My mother bought the most awful instant coffee! A friend had some "freeze-dried" coffee which came out during the President Johnson, or, Kennedy, years that tasted better. Stayed in Paris, France for almost a year. What coffee they made for "apres manger"! It spoiled me. Then, Turkish coffee really got me hooked on fresh coffee. In America, my wife and I bought already bagged coffee. I wanted fresh coffee each morning. Now, thanks to Krups, I have it!

Brands I'd also recommend: none. there is no substitute for "krups"!

This is the best grinder on the market. Period. My last one lasted over fifteen years. It is easy to use, easy to clean and you can vary the degree of coarse or fine consistency depending on the time you press down on the top.

Don't bother looking any further for your coffee grinder. THIS IS IT! I thought I had to have a burr grinder to do the job and bought a small Italian made burr grinder. It was slow, noisy, with an inconsistent grind and intensely messy. Got tired of it and took a chance on this Krups. It is fast, not near as noisy, good consistency of grind and zero mess. Buy it - DONE!

I love this grinder but I can't speak to using it as a coffee grinder. I use it for grinding flax seed, which is a much more healthy way to get my omega oils than fish oil. The best way to use flax seed is to grind it fresh to preserve the oils. I wanted something that would be quick for every day use. This great little grinder is quick, grinds to a perfect powder and is easy to clean and store away. I use this almost daily and it has not disappointed in any way. I actually bought a second one for my friend who wanted to switch to flax seed from fish oil.

The best grinder for the money. Our first one lasted four years (used ten times a week). Just bought second one. Seems to be more solid than last one: sturdier and quieter.

I purchased this to replace my 40 year old one. Some reviews said new ones not made in Europe were not as good but my old one was made in Hong Kong. The new one is great; the capacity is much larger. Very efficient and fast.

It's a coffee grinder and it does that well. I gave it 4 stars for looks because it does have an uninspired profile -- still, its a coffee grinder, who cares?

This is a great, inexpensive coffee bean grinder. I bought it to replace my previous Krups grinder which lasted me probably over 20 years before the switch gave out. My only gripe is that the power cord should have been longer. Other than that, I am pleased with this product.

I like the Krups 203 Fast Touch Coffee Grinder because it is easy to operate. In just a few seconds, I can grind enough coffee beans to make a full pot of coffee. It is not hard to clean the grinder - just wipe the inside with a damp cloth and put the lid in hot soapy water or in the dishwasher. Making coffee with freshly ground coffee beans tastes great. Another thing I really like about this grinder is the size. I have a limited amount of counter space, and it is small enough that it doesn't take up much space. I thought about buying a larger, more expensive grinder, but chose to try this one first. I'm glad I did, because it is perfect for my husband and I.

We bought this grinder as a replacement for the exact same model which had served us faithfully. It took years of abuse before succumbing to it. Years.

Did a lot of research to find a reasonably priced grinder that would actually work and based on reviews went with this one. Glad I did! It's not big but it certainly does the job and well! Was also surprised as to how fast I received it.

Works well and easy to clean. The grinder only holds a few ounces of beans but it doesn't take long to grind a whole 1 lb bag (about 5 rounds of grinding--each round is about 10 seconds).

Using it for couple of weeks now every single day. Truly amazing; very easy to use; getting very nice flavor. Discovered that the finer you grind, the more coffee you get.

So far, its been a solid little grinder. My only gripe, it's a bit louder than my Bodum grinder . . . which btw lasted me 12yrs. Since its been less than a year, and this Krups is made overseas--the jury is still out, I give it 4 stars.

It's simple to set up and use. I was looking for a quick-buy, low-cost, easy-to-use grinder, and this was it. i'm not a coffee expert, so I can't compare the fine details of what a high-end grinder might do, but for your basic coffee needs, I think it's fine.
