1 out of 5 eggsDied in 6 months

Pros: It worked well when it worked. Easy to clean. A decent price. Looked nice and even had cord storage.

Cons: It just died on me after 6 months of home use of grinding a pound a month for my ONE CUP of coffee a day!
Will not buy another Cuisinart----unreliable.

2 out of 5 eggsDied after 5 years

Pros: It did a fairly decent job for a while. Also, I appreciated some of the parts being dishwasher-safe (not all grinders can make that claim).

Cons: After 5 years, the bar wouldn't stay down by itself. I had to hold it down and guess how much coffee was being ground. I called Cuisinart, and they told me I couldn't service it myself, the unit was shot and that they hadn't received similar complaints (I don't believe that). As mentioned by others, the static electricity was annoying, with the coffee grounds flying all over the counter and onto my clothing. Also, very difficult to clean - tried knives, Q-tips, etc., but nothing worked very well.

Other Thoughts: I think I will buy another brand - possibly a DeLonghi (which also has dishwasher-safe parts).

5 out of 5 eggsMOTOR RESOLVE

Pros: Has lasted me ~4-yrs, performs well for price

Cons: None for the money!

Other Thoughts: As an FYI, I have had a similar model for 4-yrs, and when I first got mine, which used to be model CCM-16, I tried to grind a pound of beans, and after ~3 hoppers full, the motor would not come on.

I later realized it is not made to do so much in succession, and the motor has a thermal cutoff to keep it from burning out, a good thing.

If it stops working, let it sit several hours and try it again before proclaiming it is broken.

I now grind 2 hoppers, wait awhile and grind more, and it as worked perfectly since.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Inexpensive Grinder

Pros: I roast my own coffee for the great flavour and price. I felt i was lettijng the coffee down with a blade grinder, and saw this burr grinder for a good price. It has turned out just fine. I roast enough coffee every day for a 12 cup pot, and the hopper is big enough to always be ahead by 1 pot. More later. The grind, for my purposes, is perfect and once i set it i leave it alone to get the right amount and grind.

Cons: As many have pointed out, it is loud! I sort of expected it to be loud, since it is grinding coffee. That being said, i don't believe my ears have been damaged...

The slider switch for the amount is sensitive to being jostled, and may cause an incorrect amount to be ground.

Other Thoughts: Someone said, in their review that you shouldn't sump roasted coffee in the hopper because it should be kept in an air tight container. Even if this were true, it is already too late. The container in the store where you buy your beans is certainly not air tight. Beans should be ground within 12 hours-12days after roasting. They need to outgas some CO2. After around 12 days, the flavour and aroma start to deteriorate.

By self roasting I am not trying to be a "coffee snob" but rather to have the best coffee in the world for around $6 a pound.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat grinder bad shipping

Pros: for the money a very nice grinder. can set it to grinder for a ceretain amount of cups of coffee at a time. Once done a couple of taps of the bottom of the grind catcher on the counter before opening helps with avoiding the mess

Cons: Newegg really failed in the shipping of this item. Just slapped a address label on the bottom of the box and shipped it that way WITHOUT even taping the top of the box shut. Come on that is lame and lazy. No fault of the grinder or cuisinart. This is the first item I ever recieved from newegg shipped in this manner. The coffee maker I bought at the same time ( shipped from a different location ) was put in a cardboard box and shipped with packing material around the entire cuisinart box. Would have thought newegg shipping practices would be the same from both their locations but not!

Other Thoughts: Happy with the grinder

2 out of 5 eggsNot bad, not great... spend the extra money on a better one!

Pros: Grinds ok...

Cons: LOUD!!!! Yes... VERY VERY LOUD...
Unit does not grind beans automatically anymore... I must hold down the button to grind my beans.
Seems to be struggling to grind more and more everyday.

Other Thoughts: I've read on here that these units die within a year and I know my buddies did for sure... It won't work at all.
Mine is kind of fading and now I wish I would have spent more on a different brand.

1 out of 5 eggsHearing Loss

Pros: It grinds coffee beans.

Cons: - LOUD! I have serious concerns about hearing loss. I hit the start button and retreat to another room while it grinds and wakes the dead.

- Messy! You cannot dump the ground coffee without created a mess. Have a damp cloth handy to clean up the spills.

- Inconsistent! Beans hang up and fail to feed while the motor whines like a turbine. Always grinds about 10% of beans extra fine regardless of setting.

Other Thoughts: SERIOUS concerns about hearing loss. I considered ear plugs while this thing grinds, but opted to retreat to another room during operation of the device. Someone may want to test the sound output and post results. Sound frequency as well as amplitude may also be damaging.

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds MOD to grind espresso

Pros: Nice finish, good build quality, price reasonable. Feeding and timer work well, top container holds a lot of beans. Not messy. Really convenient for daily grind of small quantity, 4 cups setting produces enough for 1-2 espressos at the push of a button (20 seconds)

Cons: - WARNING: Out of the box, this DOES NOT produce fine enough grind for espresso at the finest setting, in fact nowhere near. The finest setting grinds do NOT produce enough flavor at all for an espresso machine.

IT needs a mechanical MOD as described below which will produce superfine espresso grinds (=flavor) at the COARSEST setting. After mod you can no longer make anything but (real fine) espresso grind because the spacer I add under the burr plate, altho super thin, means that you can barely screw the top down to the coarsest setting, which is required to click the safety switch, without risking that the burr plates touch, which will produce a very unpleasant sound of metal on metal.

You must visually adjust the burr plates and make sure the spacer washer is as thin as possible.

- Not a conical burr mill

Other Thoughts: MOD FOR ESPRESSO:

Unscrew the top container & see the top burr plate screw ed into bottom of the cylinder. goal is to add a bit of thickness under plate so you can get a finer grind.

Unscrew the plate slowly so you don't mess up the plastic threads. Then use a spacer washer, very thin metal that was luckily exactly the diam as the burr plate, at home depot. I only needed 1. drill 3 holes in it to match the screw holes, and screw the burr plate over it using 5/8" #4 screws which are a little fatter. Be careful if you use those screws as you don't want to crack the plastic they screw into, but screw firmly so the plate is as far in as poss. and the screw heads are recessed - its crazy how much a 1/32 washer can change things.

now the burr plates R almost touching on the coarsest setting, as viewed through the grind exit. Voilà. Fine as powder.

note: Coarsest setting = 1st or 2nd clik, BUT plates must NOT touch. Bottom plate will rotate with top plate if plates are touching!

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for a low end...

Pros: I have had mine for over 2 years and it is still working fine. This is at the low end for a burr grinder.

Cons: One of the loudest grinders I have ever used! I have to grind every night before going to bed so i don't wake up the whole house! The catch container has a LOT of static cling, especially when finely ground for espresso. Could be a little more consistent on the grind.

Other Thoughts: If money is a concern, you can't go wrong!
