Very nice little unit
This is a very nice coffee grinder. It's more compact, quieter and faster than our old unit that it replaced. It's plug-in (corded), not battery.

The oval shape is actually superior to round ones, because it grinds the beans more evenly and completely. It's designed that way on purpose. In round grinders, the beans go in a circle, but in oval ones they bounce around and encounter the blades more often, resulting in a smoother grind.

This is such a versatile product. So glad that it's still on the market. Harder to find in stores. I also use it to grind my spices! Works like a charm. Shipping was quick also.!

A Five Star Grinder
I used to have one of these grinders years ago, and I used it for coffee beans. I purchased another one recently to grind flaxseed. These grinders work extremely well. I should have given it 5 stars.

Does the Job
It grinds coffee and spices very well. It's easy to clean.

I tried grinding Parmesan cheese and broke the machine.

The Krups Fast-Touch Coffee Grinder is the best. It produces a coffee grind exactly the way we like it in a short amount time. The grind is consistent and smooth with no unground beans or particles. The oval shape is easy to hold.

I had my last Krups grinder for over 20 years and it still works like a charm. Although the stand broke (after 20 yrs!), so I'm replacing it with the exact same one.

I needed an easy grinder to use that cleans up pretty easily.
Christy L on Oct 30, 2016
My first coffee grinder was a Krups
I used it for 40 years and gave it away while downsizing in a move from Hawaii back to the mainland. Turns out I couldn't live without one so I bought another one. I'm happy to say it seems to be as well made and efficient as the first one. After 40 years I'd say that's pretty remarkable for a manufacture company to maintain that level of quality. Its not made in China.

looking for a grinder for Indian spices

Reviews said it grinds finer than other options. Wanted something cheap(er) and portable.
Lisa K on Jul 29, 2016
Excellent ratings. I love it; it's so easy to use. Get a little cosmetic brush to clean it out between uses.
Llyn K on Jul 2, 2016
Because its the best grinder on the market - I have had the one I am using now for 40 years.
Leslie T on Jun 10, 2016
Love it. Been using this same item for over 40!years. Only had to replace 2x's in 40 years!
Elizabeth G on Jun 8, 2016
We've been using this same model of Krups coffee grinder for over 20 years. I purchased it from Marshall Fields...they had a wonderful kitchen and housewares department. (I miss them!) Anyway, my husband thinks ours is finally on it's way out and it's time to replace it before it completely burns out and we will be without our morning brew. I wish more kitchen ware was as well made.
Celene M on Jun 1, 2016
I needed another spice grinder because one is dedicated for coffee and the other one is dedicated to grinding hot peppers, so I didn't have one to grind anything else.

Will this grind flax seeds?
Lisa L on Aug 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I haven't used it on flax, but it does a very good job at fine- grinding all the spices I buy.
It might be difficult to get a coarse grind, though. You could try alternately grinding and shaking, but I'm not sure that would work.
I buy ground flax seeds and keep them in the freezer to keep them fresh.
Hope this helps.
Can grinding unit be washed?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Only the cap is washable. I clean my grinding unit by pulverizing a couple of tablespoons of cheap white rice in it. The rice picks up most of the leftover spice residue. I then discard it into my compost. You can also wipe out the grinder with a damp cloth.
How long do you grind the beans for?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not long. It depends on the how you like your grounds, fine, or course.
I also use it to grind my spices. It's a terrific product and had to replace mine after 15 years! I hope that this helps.
Can it grind black seeds?
Cynthia R on Jun 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I assume you mean Nigella Sativa black seed. I've not tried it yet on the black seed, but it grinds a lot of things other than coffee, such as flax seed, very well. Many web sites say to grind Nigella Sativa "In a coffee grinder," and this grinder is a truly good one. The blades are made of metal, so there's no worry of plastic blades breaking.
Is this a corded or battery operated device?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a corded device. It's a very nice little unit, I like it a lot.
You may know that the oval shape is actually superior to the round ones. That's because they grind the beans more completely.
How consistent is the grind for coarse-ground coffee?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think it grinds well and consistent. Like all grinders like this I never know when I have the type of grind needed. But I like this grinder
will it be good for makineta?
Shira S on Nov 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it would be.
