[Costco] Cuisinart DBM-8C Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill $39.97 (YMMV)

At the Markham (Yorktech) Costco, the Cuisinart DBM-8C Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill is priced at $39.97.
Maybe other Costcos have it also for $39.97

Amazon has it for $55.

Not sure how good the grinder is but it's only $40.

Great price overall, but I would personally recommend the KRUPS GX5000. It was $65 at Amazon last I checked and after a week of research it always came out on top, over this DBM-8C.

Most reviewers said it was simply more consistent with the fine grinds, for those who love espresso, among other types.

The Cuisinart Burr is not really worth it. The blades will become dull within a few weeks and you won't get the grind you are looking for. I would skip it. Bodum Bistro is better, but makes a massive mess. Never used the Krups Burr, but I have a portable Krups one and it seems to be pretty good.

This is among the worst burr grinders we have used. Produces a ton of waste dust you need to scoop out.

Cuisinart burr Grinder outlasted my Bodum by a long shot. It’s Costco and the price is right - give it a go and take it back if you don’t like it.

39.97 is effective in the East coast but not in the West

49.99 in the West

I got the Bonavita CSA certified coffee maker and then went on a coffee pilgrimage to find the best grinder under $100. It's easily the Krups GX5000,

Over $100-$150 it's the Bodum mentioned by another poster.

Over $160 it's a whole other ball game

But this list only applies to Canada, as the selection in the US is wayyyyy better and pricing is much more competitive.

It's a lot better than a spinning blade grinder, but not as good as more expensive burr grinders. If a more expensive burr grinder is out of your budget, this is a good alternative.

The Bodum Bistro is $79.99 right now too. I know a lot of people like that one.

I wouldn't buy anything from bodum directly ever again. I bought a stand mixer 2 weeks ago,and only got one email as a confirmation that the order was placed. I did not receive a shipping confirmation.

I emailed (because you can't call them apparently) asking to modify my order, and heard nothing. A week later the stand mixer shows up. God forbid I need to have this sent back for whatever reason or get warranty service.

Buy their products in store or something, just not from them directly or you are gonna have a bad time.

As a non coffeee drinker I know nothing about this, but it seems they say this isn’t great for espresso maker? My wife uses espresso maker usually. Any opinions from people that have used this for espresso?

If you use it for drip coffee and french press - It'll be day and night difference from regular ground coffee and considerable from spinning blade "grinders".
For 40 bucks it's well worth it.

I had this grinder for a while (2-3 years). You obviously get better results with a better grinder, or a manual ceramic one (like Hario's) - but I had both at the time, I'd use my DBM-8 almost everyday. Only major complain is the noise. It was loud.
