Equipped with hard burrs that grind beans more uniformly andwithout the flavor-destroying heat generated by blade grinders, thiscoffee mill makes preparing fresh coffee simple. It has preprogrammedbuttons for grinding enough to brew 4, 8, 10, or 12 cups and a dial forselecting one of 18 grind consistencies, from very coarse to very finefor espresso. The bean chamber holds 8 ounces, enough for about 36five-ounce cups. When the selected amount of beans is ground, the millshuts off automatically. A transparent plastic container snaps into themill's front to catch up to 8 ounces of ground coffee. It has a snap-onlid so it can store either ground coffee or beans. For easy cleaning,the grinding wheel twists out. The 120-watt mill measures 5 incheswide, 9 inches high, and 6-1/2 inches deep. It's clad in hard, brightplastic, has push-in cord storage, and carries a one-year warrantyagainst defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A burr grinder at a regular grinder price
While the price of all small coffee grinders seems to have dropped, this burr grinder costs about what I paid for a basic blade grinder years ago. As to the machine. It has 18 degrees of fineness, which you set easily with a wheel on the side. Open the top, fill it with coffee (it holds about a half pound). Hit one of the preset amount buttons, 4,8,10 or 12, and in a few seconds, the bottom detachable container is ready to slide out. It takes some experimentation to find out how fine you like your grind, and if the preset amounts produce the right amount for your pot. I found that the amount it produced for eight cups was just right for our ten cup pot (and I don't like weak coffee). If none of the preset amounts are right for you, it has a shut off button on the front, so you can hit the button for a larger amount and shut it off early. Since the preset amounts seem generous, it should grind enough coffee for most automatic makers, press pots, etc.
The coffee storage area on top is a little small, i.e. it holds about enough for two twelve cup pots, but its simple enough to keep adding new beans.
The grinding burr comes out easily (i.e. the top one - the bottom one is attached, but cleaning is easy. When the coffee is ground, it ends up in a clear plastic container that slides out easily, and cleans up easily.
There is cord storage space underneath, so you can leave out just enough cord to reach from the unit to the wall socket - and this machine has earned a permanent place on our counter, next to the coffee pot. Its going to be burr grinding from now on.

4-0 out of 5 stars Burr grinder quality for a blade grinder price
I have used many grinders, and the burr grinders make a much, much better cup of coffee than the blade grinders. There may be better grinders out there, but if you can't afford to spend a fortune, this machine gives you "burr" quality for a "blade" price. It is convenient and easy to use, and easy to clean. I never have to measure coffee, I just press the "6" button and pour the grounds into the coffee maker.

There are a couple of minor inconveniences.
1. There is a small amount of ground coffee that ends up on the counter. Very little, in my experience, nothing like the big mess described below.
2. You do have to experiment with the coarseness settings until you find what you like. It took me three tries to figure out that I like it at setting 10. I used the finest setting a couple of times, to make espresso, and the results were great.

By the way, I have found that I prefer to use the amount of coffee recommended for 6 cups when I make 8 cups of coffee. That has nothing to do with this grinder, I have found exactly the same results with other grinders and other coffee makers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ground coffee is abrasive
After about 6 months of once daily use the grounds finally wore a hole in the side of the chute that delivers the coffee to the hopper. This resulted in the motor housing filling up with ground coffee, and eventually the whole machine seizing up.

2-0 out of 5 stars A real letdown
I purchased this grinder in spite of some of the poor reviews and ended up sending it right back to Amazon. I have had several coffee grinders and this one is the poorest performer of all. It only costs $20, but why spend $20 on a grinder that gives poor results when you can get a blade grinder for $10 that does a much better job? This Melitta coffee mill purports to grind from fine to coarse but in reality only grinds to a course consistency. I sent this item back as defective because the product information clearly states "18 grind selections, from very coarse to very fine for espresso." This is clearly not accurate. I hope to get my shipping cost back. Anyway, it's a nice looking product but simply doesn't perform as expected.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's a very good value
Overall I think this little grinder is the best small grinder for the money. I haven't heard a grinder at any price that wasn't horribly noisy. The one I bought from Amazon is relatively quiet, but the one at my office is a bit noisier (I got mine based on my experience at the office, I don't know how old it is or how much use it has had). Niether of them are any noisier than the Krups blade grinder that seems so popular. The one at home leaks a little and leaves some coffee dust to clean up, the office one does not. This could be because I use a finer grind at home (for espresso) and the office one grinds medium for drip coffee. The home one is leaking less with time, I think that maybe some of the grounds are building up where the coffee enters the container and sealing it up a bit.
I got mine because the doser/grinder on my espresso machine needed new burrs, and I couldn't find replacements anywhere.
The main thing I have noticed between this grinder and the old one is the Melitta does not give a consistent grind. The old one was a solid cast metal frame, this one is all plastic, so go figure.
The old grinder is part of the Profi Estro machine that Starbucks used to sell (they changed the name to their Barrista brand and offered it in more colors). The machine with the doser grinder sold for $500 to $800 about 7 years ago.
For the price, I am very happy with this mill. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

A perfect gift for a coffee lover, this grinder comes with a 9-ounce bag of Colombian coffee beans, ready to produce full-flavored coffee as soon as it's unwrapped. The grinder has a stainless-steel-lined bowl containing a stainless-steel blade, and the bowl can accommodate up to 3/4 cup of whole coffee beans, enough for about a dozen cups of coffee when ground. Grinding is simple: the clear plastic lid snaps into place, and a slide control pulses the grinder. Cleaning is equally simple: wash the lid in warm soapy water and wipe the gleaming, hard plastic exterior with a damp cloth. The grinder will grind herbs, spices, and nuts as well as coffee beans, stands 7 inches high, and comes with a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Replacement For Grounds receptacle
This model is the same style and shape as the La Pavoni Burr Grinder. The container and lid that cracks easily is available from Europeangift.com, the La Pavoni site.

3-0 out of 5 stars Plastic Receptacle is the Achilles Heel
I've had this item for about 5 years and have nothing negative to say about the ground coffee it produces. Sure, there's a little spillage when I remove the grounds for use, but that's always seemed like a minor and eminently bearable detail. The burr grinder has had hard use, but I've never replaced it and the grind is consistently just as I like it. No complaints there.

The plastic ground-coffee receiving receptacle is a major weakness however, just as other reviewers have said. The material is quite vulnerable to cracking and does not glue well. In fact, a broken (and unavailable replacement) plastic receiving cup is the only reason I'm shopping for another grinder. Seems a shame since the rest of the thing is great! I'll go for a different model next time.

1-0 out of 5 stars I second that
Am looking for replacement plastic container because like the others, mine has cracked and there are coffee grounds everywhere. Will likely just get out the old standby Braun; less sophisticated because it has no measuring capabilities but not such a mess and still in one piece.

3-0 out of 5 stars melitta coffee mill
It grinds well and has the choice of various grinds and the price is right. The drawback is the transparent container that has the habit of cracking too easily and it always seems to be in the back corner so it spews out fine coffee unless I hold my finger over the hole. This purchase today will be the 3rd one, since I can't seem to get a hold of Melitta to get just the replacement cup.

1-0 out of 5 stars What a mess!
I used to own this thing, or should I say "Beast". The concept is great: Precisely measured grounds from pot-to-pot. However, what you don't see on the box is the mess it makes when you pull out the plastic receptacle. Grounds spray out when the lid is removed. More grounds fall out when you try to dump them into the coffee maker. Add to that the fact that you have to tap on the bottom because the oils in the coffee cause it to clump along the sides. It's even worse in the winter when it's dry with a lot of static. Coffee goes everywhere. It's more mess than it's worth. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Messy, messy, messy!
I bought this as a gift for my husband for Christmas and wish I would have known how messy this is. When you grind the beans, the grounds leak out. When you remove the container, the grounds get everywhere. And forget about cleaning it. The area where the grounds come out is atrotious to get clean. Lastly, the container that holds the grounds is already cracked. I am only using it now because it costs so much money that I feel I have to justify the cost by using it as much as I can. I am very disappointed with this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Burr Grinder at a Mill Price
I sold this grinder in my coffee stores and my customers loved it. My wife and I have used it daily for a number of years. We have had this unit so long that the white plastic has yellowed with age, yet it still does its job. (Suggestion: Order the Black unit.)

This coffee grinder uses "gear like" burrs to grind the coffee, just like the grinder at your local coffee store. This grinder does not heat up the grounds as much as a coffee mill does with its single blade that whips and chops the coffee beans. A coffee mill heats the coffee beans during this process and this heat will have a negative affect on the coffee's taste.

My wife's only complaint is that the unit is somewhat messy to clean the fine coffee grounds. I do not have as much of a problem as she does. I suggest the use of a small coffee brush to quickly clean the discharge area and the basket. The burrs are easily removed for cleaning.

At home, I have a professional grinder costing over $800. My wife is a coffee lover, yet she uses this little work horse instead of the professional unit. I guess its convenience and grinding ability make the clean up worth the effort. Please excuse me while I look for our coffee brush.

1-0 out of 5 stars Melitta Coffee Counter Mess Mill
I was thrilled to find a burr grinder at this price. I think if you make one pot of coffee a day and don't mind cleaning up the gounds that spill all over every time you take the container out to retrieve your ground coffee, then this would work for you. Beware however, I burned out two of these, (Melitta replaced the first one free) by grinding several pots worth of beans consecutively before going on a camping trip. I went back to my Krups blade grinder, works everytime with no mess. ... Read more
