Does anyone here have this? Was about to jump on the deal but the Amazon reviews are hit or miss.

Probably can but I don't think you really want a burr grinder for spices, I have a hand burr grinder and it would never grind coriander fine enough, better to just buy a cheap blade grinder and shake the thing while it is working. For pepper I would also recommend just using a quality peppermill, as there really is no comparison between freshly ground pepper and preground stuff.

Aren't those cheaper at Costco? I remember seeing similar model for ~$40, but not sure if it was identical.

Just a warning that it is extremely loud and high-pitched, like to the point where I clench every time I use it.

I have it and gets the job done.

Like the other poster said, this thing is loud. Unless you want to wake up the whole house with sound of coffee grinder vs. smell of coffee aroma. I recommend you run the machine at a different time.

I have this grinder for couple of years. It does a decent job. It's not the best one out there, but it's pretty good for it's price.

coffee starts to go stale 20 seconds after grinding. You will want to grind and use immediately for the most flavourful coffee

I have no experience with this grinder other than seeing it on sale at Costco and thought it was a great deal.

Personally, I am using https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0161Q2RUM/ref ... 00_TE_dp_1 and it is surprisingly quiet considering how loud my previous blade grinder was in comparison

I grabbed one from costco when they were on clearance price around $29 in Kitchener Ontario in December when I was in the area- works great for what it is.
Certainly a great price @ $29 when compared to the bodum burr grinder

I guess I'll keep using my manual HARIO grinder until the Bodum one goes on sale/heavily discounted.

like above said - cheapest Burr grinder on mkt but does the job ok.

Very loud (like sharpening a pencil with electric device) , must clean shoot out regularly - just use tooth pick or skewer to take out build up of grinds,

There's a good hack if you want a finer grind - see youtube. It helps and takes like 1 min to do. It involves squeezing the burrs by unscrewing the burrs with some padded 2 way tape. Still not fine enough for esspresso from a real machine. Can still make esspresso with Bialetti but not a true espresso machine as not super fine. Unless you spend $200 on a grinder you won't get it that fine. Even at $100 you can't even if you go with Bodrum one. it's quieter but not fine enough.

For the price at costco you can't beat that. Most common complain is the static caused after grind - when you open up container it falls all over. Just take it and tap bottom and let it fall to bottom and perhaps do it over a sink. Then you should be fine.

Remember it's not the grinder but the bean that also counts and water temp and water. So it good for a good but not spectacular cup of coffee/espresso.

Used to use the Hario Skelton grinder, but eventually splurged on a Baratza Encore for $189.
Pricey, but worth it if you want something that can do espresso grinds.

From previous threads, neither the Cuisinart or the bodum can do espresso grounds that well though. Seems like baratza is your best bet (quite a bit pricier) option for espresso grind... Unfortunately

I know people swear by burr grinders but for a french press I've found blades always produce a better coffee.

I have compared this one to the Bodum grinder and the Bodum grinder makes much yummier coffee. Way less static and mess with the Bodum one also.

I bought this from Costco years ago, it was so loud I wore hearing protection every time. As a result I also just ground a bunch at a time and kept in the fridge for a couple weeks. I'd advise against this, save up for at least a $120-200 grinder
