Best Coffee grinder (burr) Sub 200$ ????

Can I could expect to make big saving ($$$) buy using this device unlike the use of already ground coffee (like Lavazza)?

Here's what I spotted

Whirlpool Canada KitchenAid KCG0702OB Pro Line

Breville BREBCG820BSSXL Smart Grinder Pro

In my opinion, every intervention in RFD deserve a "thanks". Thanks given until now: more than 100,000

I've got this coffee grinder, but would not recommend it if you're serious about coffee. It's not consistent in the size of grind, or the amount it spits out.

I wouldn't expect much in $$ savings by using a grinder, but the quality of your coffee will improve for sure.

I have the Baratza Encore. It works well. Might be a little over your budget; I bought it from the Amazon Warehouse in new condition for around $165.

The Breville smart grinder. I’ve had one for a few years without an issue. Very consistent machine, can grind to a powder if you choose, handy calibration settings, looks good, and the price is right. I’d also check Baratza.

I have this one Capresso Infinity

Got it as I was looking for a conical burr grinder that can do the fine powder setting (Turkish coffee). I also grind per use which sucks a little bit as the cleanup takes time (static makes the fine coffee poweder cling to crevices) but then it's fresh everytime.

Personal preference of course just adding to the list of choices.

I have this one:

https://www.amazon.ca/Cuisinart-CBM-18C ... B002H0QMGW
https://www.costco.ca/Cuisinart-Conical ... 46616.html

I was able to "steal" it at 80% off when the Home Outfitters near me closed down and liquidated all its stock, worked out to just under $20 after taxes. They had plenty of this model at the start of the sale so I was able to wait it out and get a good price on it....

It definitely doesn't grind quite fine enough for Turkish (if you need that capability) and because of the mostly plastic design, it generates a lot of static electricity so you will have coffee grounds sticking all over the place, worse in the dry air of winter. Other than those two issues, no complaints. Most of my brewing is French press anyway (both hot and cold brew) so I don't need a very fine grind, just a consistent medium-coarse and I'm good. If you want to stay sub-$100 for your grinder, can't go wrong... get it from Costco so you have that "lifetime" warranty!

Can any of these be used for spice?
