A good basic grinder

 

Compact. Clean. Burr Type.

Need to hold down grind button.

Not fine enough for Espresso

 

Compact size

Espresso grind, on finest setting, is still too coarse for good crema.

Delonghi Electric Coffee Grinder body integrity doesn't last very long.

 

I like the compact size, the design looks great in the kitchen.

Canister cracked, the coffee stopped getting sucked down.

Nothing fine to say

 

Looks OK, fairly quiet.

Grind is too coarse and not uniform.

An okay grinder

 

I received this grinder as a birthday gift in early 2003. In the year since it has ground a lot of coffee, this is what I have found. It does not really seem to matter what grind I set the dial to, it always comes out at a grind level ...

Inexpensive, does the job

No significant range of grinds available ; messy

DeLonghi Electric Coffee Mill DCG-4T

 

This is probably the least expensive burr grinder on the market. I have used it once or twice daily ...

Inexpensive, small, attractive, not messy, uniform grind, rather quiet

Jams unless cleaned

Good Bang for the Buck

 

My Braun grinder recently gave up the ghost (after three years of service). I saw this DeLonghi uni ...

Large capacity, grinds uniformly

Not as easy to clean as my old Braun

Thought this was the last grinder I'd buy - NOT

 

Saw the DeLonghi at Costco for $24.95 and thought it looked like a great deal. I had been looking for a grinder that would hold beans and this one, with it's self-timer seemed the way to go. How wrong I was.

Grinds nicely, decent storage for about three pots worth of beans, attractive inexpensive

Gets jammed ALWAYS, can be messy, seems to miss beans

Don't buy this until U consider the Solis Maestro !

 

The DeLongi, or any burr grinder that speeds at 1500 rpm and blows the coffee into a tub, is worse than any blade grinder that you can twist up and down and sideways. I bought my DeLongi at CostCo for $25. So it was worth the experience. The coffee...

Cheap for a burr grinder

Worth less than a blade grinder
