DeLonghi KG79 Black Coffee Grinder
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs First one failed. Replacement seems fine. 03/04/2013

This review is from: DeLonghi KG79 Black Coffee Grinder

Pros: I bought this unit to replace a 5-year old Cuisinart DBM-8, which had failed. The DeLonghi is quieter (not that important to me) and although there is an issue with static electricity, it is not nearly as severe as it was with the Cuisinart. So far, I am happy with the quality of the grinding.

Cons: The first unit that arrived did not work at all. The blue light on the on/off switch lit up, but nothing else happened - the machine was totally silent. I had to return it for a replacement. *See the hint below.

Other Thoughts: *HINT - If your unit fails and it is still under warranty, DO NOT return it to NewEgg. Go directly through the manufacturer. DeLonghi requires that you send back the electrical cord only - a lot less expensive than sending back the entire grinder (as NewEgg requires).

Cuisinart DBM-8 Stainless Steel Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Died after 5 years 01/19/2013

This review is from: Cuisinart DBM-8 Stainless Steel Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill

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).
