repair bypass switch


Breville grinder is a very nice grinder to own and does a great job at grinding coffee for expresso and other. I used it for 5 years when the side switch stop operating. I simply removed it and soldered the wires for on more year of operation. Then it...

Great... when it works


Bought this grinder when it went on sale after Christmas. The grind that it produces is phenomenal--very consistent and can be adjusted very precisely. The problem i have with it is that the first one started to fail within the first two weeks. The...

Recommended with reservations.


Before purchasing the Breville Conical Burr Grinder Model BCG450XL, I was using a cheap Cuisinart blade type grinder for my coffee. Burr grinders are much more efficient at grinding coffee then blade types, but I'm not sure if this Breville model is...

CoffeeGeek - Breville BCG450XL Grinder - Ash Furrow's Review

Buy it!


I have used this grinder every day for at least two years. It is my first grinder so I have nothing with which I can compare it. I use a Keurig single cup machine and only brew one cup at a time. I also use a Breville Cafe Roma espresso machine almost...

A good grinder indeed


After having several, ahem, difficulties, with other bean grinders, my husband and I decided to purchase this product. It was kind of a splurge for us so thank goodness it does such a good job.

Easy to use

Tricky to clean
