Bodum Burr coffee grinder sale 49.95

Deal Link:
Price:
49.95
Savings:
33%
Retailer:
Bodum
This is not the top Bodum grinder, but it's still a burr grinder at 33% off price of 49.95 which is good.
I still have an older Braun burr grinder working , but ordered the Bodum one to have a spare.
https://www.bodum.com/ca/en/11750-01us-bistro

And free shipping with 60.00 order. So I added a 34oz storage jar with cork lid that's on sale for 13.95

Or the 20oz storage jar cork lid on sale for 12.95

Not sure how long the sale goes, just got the e-mail today.

Got this one about a year ago. Coffee flies everywhere. Also Bodum doesn't accept returns.
I don't recommend this product.

Have you tried spraying a mist of a few drops of water on the beans before grinding?

I always stir a little spoon with a drop of water on the beans. It's better but the problem is the plastic catcher, very staticky. Also tons of coffee gets stuck on the top portion. I always have the bang the machine to get the rest out.

Totally agree. Very frustrating grinder and horrible customer service. I offered to pay the difference to upgrade to their glass catcher and they basically told me I'm stuck with my horrible purchase.

Stay away from this one, folks.

Well the Bodum website says 14 day return policy so they should take it back.
But as with my old Braun burr grinder, I get coffee grounds from the static and plastic container. So it's something I've always been used to. You probably could try putting the beans in the freezer for a short while before you grind them. That would put some moisture on the beans to control the static.

lol I just destroyed my bodum after trying to mod it for finer espresso. I should have just left it... it's not worth it and I'm not sure if it improved it. I had a v2 which apparently grinds way better than v1.

You can tell if you have a v2 if you don't have tamper proof torx screws on the bottom.

If you attempt to take it apart, be really careful as the wires inside aren't soldered in that great. Or I was too rough with it.

Here's the guide, cached web version as the original post is gone:

30 days if unused as per their website.

Really wouldn't recommend. $50 is cheap relative to better grinders but imo you'd be much better off putting the money towards something like a 1zpresso, baratza encore, etc.

Is it true that Costco has grinders you can use to grind the whole beans you buy there?

If so, what's the drawback of using their grinders other than convenience?

You may be getting some leftovers from the people who ground before you. Could be good or bad depending on how you look at it

Freshly ground beans have lot more volatile compounds than pre-ground beans

Would not recommend buying from Bodum. Their customer service is terrible and their products are decent at best.

I purchased a pourover and a french press a year back, took like a month to ship and their customer service was very slow. The french press arrived damaged and that was another hassle to get fixed/replaced.

If you want to try bodum, id suggest buying from somewhere else

I have one of these. It grinds well, but makes a heckuva mess. Don't really like it.

don't you mean a lot more? the volatile compounds are what you pay for in the freshly roasted beans...
it's not who you are, it's what you do.

Have you tried waiting 5 minutes for the static to go away before emptying the catcher?

Yes it's true, but I always grind right before I brew, because ground coffee can lose significant flavor very quickly, in minutes.

I too have a Bodum grinder that I got on sale through a post here on RFD. I regret it. So messy. Wish I just sprung for a baratza
