Fashionable Kid Girl Letter Print T Shirt Review
M. J. Mccaffrey "Matt OneLANE": March 2, 2009: RIPI know this grinder is not in stock and probably discontinued, but cannot resist adding this final note. After eight years of use, my spouse noticed this morning that ground coffee was coming out the ventilation opening on the bottom of the machine. She started shaking the grinder a bit, and more coffee came out. Since it had seemed noisier lately, I decided to take the DeLonghi apart and give it a thorough cleaning.Well...close to a POUND of ground coffee was filling up every empty space in the housing! Tap, brush, and grind produced more and more grounds. It got comical after a while. We had been going through more bean coffee lately, and I should have paid attention to my intuition about that.I reassembled the machine, and sorry to say, almost no coffee was ejected into the grinds cup. It appears that a critical seal failed, and now my DeLonghi is hoarding all the grinds for itself. It may have been so full up that it was producing close to normal levels of grinds -- until I cleaned it.After such a long period of time and over 3,000 pots of coffee, I don't think this grinder owes me anything. Here's hoping I can find a suitable replacement.[[It's worth losing 35 "helpful" votes to add a follow-up to my original review: After three years, the only thing that has changed is that the grinds container has cracked. This affects, slightly, how the container fits into the grinder, but does not seem to affect the operation, which is still as described below. I can still recommend this workhorse after over one thousand cycles of use.]]My last coffee grinder was also a burr grinder with an electronic timer -- I got it free as a reject from a tag sale and used it for nearly a year. It ground coffee pretty well but the timer was grossly inaccurate. This DeLonghi seems to have the same general mechanism, but it does a better job with the core task of grinding. The grinder itself is much quieter than my previous machine ... there is hardly any motor sound and the grinding itself sounds almost like a chattering buzz. The manufacturer did a good job of insulating the motor from the housing to reduce noise. The grinds fall into the hopper at room temperature, as they should from a burr grinder. The resulting coffee was darker in tone, and tasted slightly richer for the same amount (by measurement) and approximately the same coarseness as the old machine.I especially liked that the machine comes apart easily -- the top storage hopper screws off and can be washed (the top grinder is attached to the hopper). This also gives easy access to the bottom grinder, which can be brushed clean.The timer is a little hard to set, but seems accurate in comparison with the old machine.This grinder is a bargain. I recommend it whole-heartedly.
Nathaniel Allen: I purchased this grinder longer ago than I care to remember -- well over 5 years ago. For me, it sees regular use a couple of times per week (literally 2 or 3 times a week, on average) and I've never had a mechanical problem with it.I'm a bit of a coffee nerd: I like oily dark roast beans, and always weigh my beans on myMy Weigh 7001DX Digital Scalewhen I brew. So I don't rely on this coffee grinder's "timer." I just dump my pre-measured amount of beans into the hopper, grind 'em, and dump out the ground beans into my press pot or brewer.I can say with certainty that the "cup measurement" scale on the mechanical timer isn't accurate -- there's no way for it to be -- and I wouldn't bother storing my beans in the hopper, since it only holds a couple of grinds worth.I have no problem with the grind adjustment at the base of the hopper, though I've never thoroughly checked my ground coffee beans for consistency in size. My main point of evaluation is that there's minimal sludge in my press pot brews, indicating that the grinds are large enough to not pass through the screen. On this point, the DeLonghi coffee mill passes muster.This little grinder has one fault: The grinds receptacle -- made of plastic -- seems to have some static properties that cause the ground beans to stick to the sides. It means that if I grind 34 grams of beans, I might only be able to tap out 33 or 32 grams without scraping the container, because they're sticking to the sides of the plastic.I'm really pleased that this dependable machine is still working furiously whenever I need it, and would happily buy a current DeLonghi grinder to replace it when the time comes.
R. M. "hackney": This grinder does not produce evenly ground coffee, there is some fine powder, and some coarser coffee. Which is not too good for espresso. Also note, this grinder is mechanically identical to the Mister Coffee.
Simplify: It does a good job of grinding the beans. We use a drip cone filter coffee maker and we set the grind to that setting. The grind is very fine and the grounds cling to everything - the cup, the spoon, and the lid of the grind catcher - making a mess when I open it up to pour the ground coffee into the coffee maker. I haven't been able to determine which settings match to the amount of ground coffee that I like to put into the coffee maker and the catcher isn't condusive to scooping the coffee out with a scoop.I guess I don't have enough experience with all the different types of coffee grinders to give this a fair rating, but I don't care for it - it's going back - I gave it one star.
Beth DeRoos "Beth DeRoos from the California ...: We bought this brand toaster in the two slice chrome finish and WOW what a great machine! It is not a light machine but has some weight to it which we like, as well as a non slide bottomThe three button (bagel, defrost, release) are on the one end of the machine and are easy to use and read as well as classy looking. And the toast turns out absolutely perfect!It is a machine we are proud to have in our kitchen. It is the second machine this company makes (bought their coffee-espresso-cappuccion machine as a gift for my husband) that I have bought and I recommend the maker to anyone who wants a quality product at an excellent price.
