The grinder is extremely well build, and does its job excellently. It is much easier to empty the ground coffee if you use a coarser setting. Using too fine of a setting seemed to increase static cling to the plastic, causing grounds to get all over the place when emptying it out.

The body of this coffe bean grinder is solid and it does a very good job of grinding a fair amount of beans. However, the plastic piece that fits into the grinder is cheap and cracked in over half a dozen pieces after grinding only 5 pounds of beans. Cuisinart normally uses better materials and I was surprised they used such a cheap grade of plastic. Finding a replacement part is proving to be difficult and it might be cheaper in the long run just to buy a new grinder.

I had this grinder for 2 years and this morning it smelled of burning plastic and stopped working. It is very loud and needs a good tap on the counter to remove the grounds but produces a nice grind on the medium course setting. I would have expected a longer life.

Loved the convenience of setting the number of cups and how fine I wanted it to grind, push the button and with a very loud sound it produced the just the correct amount and with consistent grind. the 2 biggest cons were the static causes a mess in the kitchen with every use and after 13 months of use (at only 1 pot a day) it came to a grinding halt. What stinks is the grinder we bought this as a replacement for is still going (it had a broken button but still worked). I thought Cuisinart was supposed to be top shelf?!

We have never gotten consistant grinds, much coffee is wasted as fine static cling even on course. All in all, very aggravating; we are searching for a differant grinder.

The Cuisinart burr mill does a great job. It may be a little noisy, but that lasts less than a minute. I would highly recommend it. Also, the Zappos team is amazingly fast and extremely helpful. If only all businesses could be run like Zappos!

This grinder grinds unevenly, is loud and develops a lot of static so grounds and chaff fly all over the counter every time. It is a good price but over time way annoying.

Brands I'd also recommend: Baratza Maestro or Maestro Plus

We liked this coffee grinder at first until it suddenly started only working part time when you would hit the grind button and then totally stopped working after only using it a few times a week for about 2 years. My father in law also had on for a year or so and the plastic piece that connects the coffee holder to the grinder broke. Before that is also had started to not work sometimes when you tried to grind the coffee. Seems like Cuisinart did not use the best of materials for this grinder. I expected to have this grinder for years! It looks like a really nice grinder but save your money for something better!

This is my second one. We found it worked very well and thought it only lasted 4 years (that is an estimated 720 cups of coffee per year, or 2880 cups (240 pots)), I think it performed very well for an in home unit. If this one lasts as long, I will be happy.

We have had our grinder for 8 years. We use it every day and have never had any problems. It is noisy but it is after all a grinder.

Very easy to use, coffee does taste better when you use fresh ground so I am glad I bought it, However, taking the ground coffee out of the container is a messy process. Just a trade off you should think about. It is not for someone in a morning time crunch, unless you don't mind leaving coffee grounds all over your counter every morning.

It has all the options you would expect from a coffee grinder and it does the job when it works. It's noisy, try grinding in evenings, it makes the morning headache worse. The major problem, it died after 2 weeks (3 grind jobs total).

Brands I'd also recommend: i'm not sure

Naybe I got one made on a Monday. It only lasted a few months, when I was grinding multiple bags to give as Christmas gifts, it overheated and burnt up, otherwise I was very satisfied with taste. I am bummed.
