so i've had this but in plastic (green colour) which i got on sale for $39. garbage... broke in less than half a year and now makes a loud noise now every time i grind with it. make sure you don't turn the fine grind setting while it's turned on, although it slowly moves on it's own.

i'm using another burr grinder i picked up which is not as good, but at least it's not as loud. maybe i'll get around to fixing it one day.

this or Baratza Encore for 153$?
Assuming you're not using either for espresso.
Encore 100%.
Many replaceable parts, great customer service, and last I've researched , the grind consistency is better.

can't be used neither for espresso machine with pressurized portafilter? i have read many reviews that the encore can be calibrated to give a fine grind which lead to a good result on machine with pressurized portafilter.

you could buy giftcard at SDM (8000 promo) to make it even nice.
True, but then you won't get an extra year warranty that you would get if you pay for it with your credit card.

In all fairness, you are at totally different price points.... you are comparing something costing $100 to something costing $150.
I like my Lexus better than I like my honda ----- but it's not a fair comparrison. My lexus cost me 50% more too.
I'm not bashing the Baratza, but iit is 1.5 times the price and the 2 items shouldn't be compared. Why not take it up a notch and compare it to the $300 Breville?

you're right, it does grind "acceptable" espresso but by no means optimal...
if you're going to get good fresh beans single origin beans or beans then you want to maximize the quality of the grinder.

there no acceptable espresso grinders in the sub 200 range. Lido is a good recommendation

I have this grinder and it does an excellent job grinding at the finest few settings. I used to use it with my Breville (pump was broken) but now I'm using it to grind oily dark roast beans for the Saeco automatic machine that the Saeco built-in grinder has trouble with Smiling Face With Open Mouth I examined the spent coffee pucks from both grinders and this Bodum's ground coffee was finer than the Saeco's finest setting. For me, I don't see a need to go up to the Baratza series, it's more than adequate for my daily coffee fix Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

I agree that the Bodum is loud, but so is my other grinder. I may take the advice from poster zoob about putting a towel underneath to help absorb the sound.

Check out this article from Philips/Saeco

BODUM®BISTRO BURR COFFEE GRINDER – STAINLESS STEEL
Amazon price is $193. Linnen Chest price is 154.99
Use code YESNOV for an additonal 10% off the already discounted price of 112.50
And don't forget your favourite referral site for an additional 3.25% off.

From what I can tell based on reviews, this is a great burr grinder for the price. It might not be perfect if you require a very fine grind for an espresso machine. but at the $100 price point seems to be far better than anything similar.
Buy Indigo gift card from SDM first, that's another 8% back

Great grinder but really stupid lid design. I am using rubber bands to keep it from falling off the grinder spilling beans...

Thanks OP. Been in the market for a better coffee grinder. Been eyeing the Cuisinart Burr Grinder that is selling for $49.99 at Costco. Any idea on how the bodum compares... other than of course the price?

FYI I bought the Cuisinart grinder at Costco and then did some research (Costco shopping logic, you don't know if it will be there next time). The reviews on this one are very poor, so it's probably going back unopened.

Thanks. Will go ahead and order the Bodum.

What's stopped me from buying the Costco grinder is that it has been, in the past, reduced to 29.97 before. I don't want to be left holding the bag by paying full price now.

I understand your point, but I don't think that it is applicable in this particular situation. From what I can see, the Baratza and the Bodum have comparable regular prices ($185 vs $189) on Amazon.
