Came across this amazing deal for the Baratza Encore on Crate and Barrel's website. They have it in stock online or you can pick it up at the store to avoid the $20 shipping. Available in both colour (black and white)

You can also probably get away with price matching with another retailer if it's easier and to save on shipping

This is the lowest I have ever seen this go and I would be all over this if I did not get one for Christmas already.

Replaced my OXO burr grinder with this and it is a night and day difference. My OXO one started to get dull after about a year and produced inconsistent grinds and I paid about $100 for it. This is $40 more but will last a lifetime as all parts are replaceable.

I've also got a 3 year old Oxo... debating whether to replace. How can you tell if the burrs are getting dull?

Surprisingly the Oxo has slightly better reviews than the Encore on Amazon

My Bodum burr grinder with glass catcher is coming up 2 years old and this is tempting....!

I'm new to the burr world but is this a clear upgrade?

Should I just grab this for when my current one kicks the bucket lol....

I got this one a few months ago to replace my Bodum burr grinder with glass catcher as well. My Bodum had a timer, which is good if you want to keep a lot of beans in the hopper and grind by time. This one doesn’t, so I keep the hopper empty and single dose by weight now.

Neither is good enough for espresso from what I read, but I haven’t tried. Both are messy, but the Bodum for me was messier. Subjectively, I think the Baratza’s grind is more consistent. Not enough to affect taste for French press, but I’ve noticed a difference with pour over. YMMV

Thanks for this!!

Not having a timer could be a deal breaker as it's set so my wife and parents if they are over can just hit the button and go, would be harder for them to make them pre-measure or perhaps just set an egg timer or find a scoop.

You can manage the mess on the baratza at least, by misting the beans with water before grinding. I just wet my fingers and flick a bit of water into my measuring cup and shake it up a bit. This has significantly reduced the mess for me.

My encore is going on 5 years old and it still works great. I'm sure my neighbors don't love that I grind coffee every morning at 7AM... but I love it!

Extra $20 for shipping if you don't have access to a shop. Can't return once used.

Seems like a good grinder, one that I passed on when I got my current one because the price wasn't as good as this.

$20 shipping or going to Yorkdale seems like two bad options.
Outlaw ellipses and apostrophes.

These are pretty decent. You can upgrade the burrs and they're extremely repairable.
If anything goes wrong you can basically buy any part you need off their site and fix it.

I bought this grinder a few weeks ago (for $160) to replace my Bodum Burr Grinder with glass catcher. The Bodum was way too messy imo. I like this grinder a lot more.

edit: the grinder I got appears to be the newer version? I am not sure what all of the differences are, but if mine is in fact the newer version, I don't like how they removed the automatic shut off.

This is hot from a price perspective and as an entry level grinder. I upgraded to this from the Hario Skerton and have moved on since to a K plus (after some additional intermediate steps).

Be warned - it was loud, and if you're prone to becoming obsessive about your hobbies, or even just the taste of your cup, you'll find yourself upgrading sooner than you would think.

This is an amazing price for an amazing brew/filter grinder.

Just know, this grinder is loud and messy with no frills. For filter/pourover this is better than my Breville Smart Grinder Pro but not as good as a Eureka Crono. Encore is also infinitely repairable which alone makes it better than the Capresso Infinity and Bodum.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

I'll stick to my Oxo grinder. Less messy, has the timer and consistent grind for me.

This price is hot. I got one in late Oct 2022, and it was on sale for $160.

Wait a minute... there's no timer?!?! Oh man, that'll be hard for me to adjust to after using the Oxo

What's the noise level relative to your Oxo? If Oxo is a 5/10 noise, what's the Encore?
