Bought one a few months back and returned through Amazon because the coarsest setting was still too fine for french press. Otherwise seemed fine at this price point.

Bodum makes 2 different burr grinders. The one in the OP's post, as well as this one --> https://www.bodum.com/ca/en/10903-01us-3-bistro

Yes, it cost twice as much. But it is a much better grinder. It is not perfect as it is inconsistent and suffers from static cling. But given the price, it is an excellent deal. I actually got mine about 10 years ago for $50 at The Bay. Still running strong. If you're looking for a burr grinder for less than $100, I suggest waiting for Black Friday or Boxing day and get the other Bodum Burr Grinder.

Assuming the actual burr grinder is the same. Only the switches look different

It is different. The cheaper model does not have a timer. The more expensive model has a timer with which you can dial in the duration of the grind. The cheaper model uses a dial wheel on the side to dial in the grind size. The more expensive model uses rotating hopper to adjust grind size. The cheaper model also uses a plastic hopper to catch the grinds, which is very prone to static electricity. The more expensive model uses a glass beaker with rubber lid to catch grinds. Although it is still prone to static during the winter months when air is dry, it is far less affected by static cling.

My Bodum burr grinder just stopped working after 6 months. Took me a lot of effort to get their customer service to send me a replacement as they blamed me for “damaging” it. Finally received the replacement and sold it to buy the Oxo burr grinder which is performing very well! Bodum, never again.

Mine is still going strong after 8 years of being used at least once a day.

My burr grinder from last year's sale can't consistently grind smaller than half a bean. I should have RMA it during the heat of covid as I took it apart too to find out the settings didn't move the size door at all and pretty sure it never did in the first place.

Similar experience here as everyone else. Bought a Bodum grinder and was extremely disappointed with the results. Ended up giving it away to a coworker I didn't like.

Saved up for a Baratza Encore, and the difference in quality is night and day.

I guess the ppl complaining are the ones that expect this to work like a $200+ grinder. I bought the glass catcher one a few years ago from a rfd post as well , I think it was All in $90 and it has performed as expected. It’s small enough to store away and not another counter top real estate hog. To each their own. Good deal for $50 but you’re gonna have to deal with some annoyances

If so, what's the drawback of using their grinders other than convenience?
Freshness. The biggest "offender" in coffee before brewing is humidity, which cause oxidation.

A Whole bean will have a considerably smaller surface area compared to the same weight in ground coffee. More surface area exposed to humidity = more/faster oxidation = coffee go stale faster.

So if you grind right before brewing, you're getting a lot "fresher" coffee. If you want to go the "freshest" (?) get them right after roast. the "oxidation" clock starts after roast (when you remove all moisture from the bean)

Mine too. I realized I have the expensive version of it that I had picked up off Amazon on a price error 5-6+ years ago (around 80-90ish as well). It's not consistent but does the job for my Aeropress.

Anyone have a broken burr grinder that they can send me the grinder ring?

No stock in spare parts and Customer Service won't deal with since I'm 5 days out of delivery date for a part I didn't know it was missing.

I don't recommend this product.
Got it last year when it was posted here and have had the same issue. What works for me is don't overfill the collector, and give it a few taps after grinding, I usually lift it maybe half an inch off the counter and tap it 3-4 times to get all the grinds out. That when combined with the water drop technique posted by other users has made this much less messy to use.

I still wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a burr grinder.

coupon code COFFEE10 for another 10% off.
$44.95 for this model.

I ended up getting the glass model for $93.55 with this coupon.

Funny story, I bought one of these. It didn't work first try, so contacted Bodum and they offered to send a new one, no questions asked. But I spent more time looking at it and realized there must have been a small stone in the coffee, which was bizarre, but after removing it, the bodum is lasting years and years, with many pots of coffee per day. I've only had to clean the burrs once.

I found a glass jar from some Italian hot peppers that fit the ground coffee container lid perfectly, which eliminates the static problem.

For $50, it's a steal, just find a glass container for the ground coffee.

I bought this a year ago as well and it's been absolutely fine for me. It's my daily sometimes twice a day grinder. I don't use drops of water or anything. The grind I chose was somewhere in the middle between fine and coarse.
