In a handsome stainless and black combination, the new Krups GVX coffee mill lets you adjust the bean fineness with exact precision - it has 17 settings from fine to coarse so it easily adapts to any type of coffee maker, French press or espresso maker. The container on top holds eight ounces; below is the special Burr milling system that grinds your beans to the fineness you've selected, preserving the aroma and avoiding overheating. The burr grinders can be removed for easy cleaning. The dial on front lets you adjust from 2 to 12 cups; on bottom is the removable container that fills with your freshly ground beans, ready for brewing.
Dose not stay runing unless you hold your hand on the top or cover. But as long as you stand there and hold the top down its works very nice. But I really think all the auto fetures are out the window because of this problem. Wish it held a little more coffee.
I have only used this a few times, but everytime I have a hard time getting it to turn on. I have had to clear the coffee beans out, take the burr attachment out and then try again. Also the only grind I have been able to get is powder fine. My husband thought I had bought a new brand of coffee, it was so strong.
I guess we like this grinder pretty well since this is our third one. We've had to replace 2 others over the years because the switch gave out. I consider this normal wear & tear since it's used every day of the year. Each grinder has lasted at least 4 years with no other problems, so we're happy.
I found the grinder easy to use and does a good job.
The grinder suggests that it starts automatically, but I need to apply continuous pressure to the top during the grind process. It does stop automatically. It has multiple grind settings. I have both a drip coffee maker and a Keurig, so the ability to choose a grind is important to me, and I have enjoyed the coffee I made using the coffee ground in this machine. For a burr grinder with multiple settings the price was good even if it didn't run automatically.
This Krups burr grinder does a very good job. You can't beat it for the price. Easy to take apart to clean and easy to use and grinds to appropriate settings.
This replaced an unusable Jura-Capresso 585.05 which clogged mercilessly and spread powdered coffee all over the counter with each use, which in turn replaced a worn-out Cuisinart DBN-8 (a brand I now avoid, having had problems with just about every device from them I've tried). The latter admittedly worked well enough for a few years, though early in its life, it spewed a screw into the hopper. The Krups looks like it will be unlikely to clog as there's hardly any "chute" through which the ground coffee must pass, unlike the Jura's long, twisting internal maze. The grounds come out fairly uniform, though, like every burr grinder I've tried, some ultra-fine powder is produced even at a relatively coarse setting. The beans occasionally pack together in the hopper, requiring a shake or a tap to get them flowing again - but the same thing happened with the other two.
This grinder was a gift for someone who had seen it my home and had looked all over for one for herself. She is was thrilled when I gave it to her and it was put to immediate use.
good grinder for the money, small size which is what i wanted. Does create a lot of static electricity as it's grinding.
Brand new grinder, out of the box, stops working after 5 minutes. I was able to make one pot of coffee. I'm sure they're not all this way, but it's pretty disappointing.
Had the simpler Krups grinder for TWENTY THREE YEARS before it stopped working one morning, so no way was I going to go with any other brand. Got this higher-end model and am VERY pleased with the size of the basket & the ability to select different grinds. Quiet, too. Very, very pleased.
This is the second one of these I've owned. (NO, the first one didn't break, I am using this one while deployed in Afghanistan.) I love the controls, you get exactly what you set for, and it makes a great grind.
Bought this for my husband while he is in Afghanistan and it's working great. Didn't want to get an expensive one due to the conditions it would be used in, but this one works well, and is great for the price.
It took a few test runs to learn how to get the right amount of coffee for our tastes, but now that we've done it, we find the grinder efficient and fun to use. One quibble: the bin on the top could be a bit larger.
I love the burr coffee grinder. The coffee does taste much better than a regular ginder. I was attracted to this product because of the brand name, Krups. I've had a regular Krups grinder for years without having a problem. I read about the burr coffee grinder making the coffee better. I tried another brand and it did make the coffee better but it broke down in about a year so when I went to look for another one I knew I had to get this brand. I have to drink decaf coffee now but you can't tell the difference using the burr coffee grinder. Yes they do cost more than a regular grinder but the cost is worth it. I'm not a big coffee drinker either but I do like my coffee in the morning.
I shopped for a quality grinder at an affordable price and I believe I found it in this one. While I don't grind for espresso, I am very happy with the results for my daily coffee needs.
The machine works very well, it is easy to clean and does not leave a mess on the countertop. These three things matter most to me. you can dial for the grind you want and dial for the number of cups, you can also just hit the on off switch to stop if you put in more coffee or selected more cups than you need at the moment.
Because of clever design, this coffee grinder gives a uniform, cool grind in little time and the simplified design makes it less expensive to manufacture, so it is a terrific value. The appearance is really very nice and the size is suited to the countertop. It looks good next to my Krups Mokabrew. I am very pleased with this product. There are a few minor negatives, however.
Some reviews noted the grinder is quiet but I found it was almost as noisy as the little impact grinder I used to use. Coffee grinding still wakes up late-sleepers.
I also found that, during grinding, every once in awhile the burr gets disengaged causing the motor to race, but when this happens, it can be fixed quickly by turning off the grinder, twisting the burr slightly counterclockwise and turning it back on. It's a minor trouble.
This is my second grinder. The first one quit after two years. My husband took it apart and could not figure out what happened to make it stop, but I think for the price that two years is a good deal. I love the way it grinds so evenly, but I do find it a bit messy when I take out the ground coffee. The texture of the grind is perfect but the measuring is not accurate so I just use my scoop like I do with any coffee.
if you do not mind measuring your own coffee, this is a great little grinder. it looks good, the grind is even and complete, but the measure is all wrong for my taste. i have toyed with returning it all week, so i would not recommend it to others.
This grinder rules, when I ordered it from cooking.com, it was for another coffee freak. (I just started my addiction again a few months ago.) However, I bought the same model elsewhere. The only issue I have with it is the 'cup' setting. Simply put, it is only a timer, so the type of beans being used and the coarse/fine selection both play a factor in how much coffee is actually ground. However, since the ground hopper is clear, and the button can be used as a simple on/off setting, it works great regardless. All that, and no chunks like blade grinders!

When shopping for coffee, look for a few key terms that'll ensure the best possible brew. "Fair trade" means the coffee farmer was paid a fair living wage for his beans. "Organic" means the coffee trees weren't treated with any pesticides. "Shade grown" means the beans didn't come from coffee trees that were genetically modified to grow in the sun. Coffee trees naturally thrive in shady forests, but a lot of coffee these days comes from trees that were modified to grow in the sun, meaning that indigenous forests have been clear-cut to make way for large-production coffee farms.
