Breville® Smart Grinder

This easy-to-use conical burr grinder grinds coffee beans to the perfect degree of coarseness for your favorite brewing style. Hardened steel burrs create ultra-consistent, fully adjustable grounds without generating excess heat, protecting flavorful essential oils.

Simply select your coffee type and grind the precise amount you want via the easy to use Grind IQ™ controls. Prefer a little more or less? Use the manual adjustment dial—the Smart Grinder is programmed to remember your preferences. Anti-static grinding chamber slows grounds down as they exit the grinder, packing them together to minimize static before dispensing them into the grounds container. Removable bean hopper locks in place for safety.

Great Features that WORK
I've tried 3-4 grinders so far, from the small, spice grinder type to larger ""Advanced"" models. So far, this one is the winner by far. It's made well, and is SO easy to use. Just set your grind, # of cups desired ( 12 max ), and push ""Start"". Your perfectly ground coffee comes out well-contained in the cup, ready to dump into your machine. The only drawback so far is that you might have to give it a bit of a shake to get the beans to feed properly on occasion

best gift I've ever recieved !
I bought this as a gift for my son. After alot of research & comparison of other grinders, this seemed like the best choice. My son absloutely loves it. He said it is high quality both in design and in functions. He was surprised and pleased with the extra grinding cradles that comes with it.
It is extremely versatile and offers more choices than he ever anticipated. It doesn't take up alot of room on the counter & is quiet. As he is the best gift. I highly recommend this grinder, you won't be disappointed

An excellent grinder
First, a caveat: I use this thing primarily for pour-over and press coffee, so I can't really speak to its ability to grind for high-end espresso machines.

Yes, it's expensive. But considering the impact it's had on the taste of my coffee, I think it's definitely worth the money. Grounds are uniformly consistent and make it easy to taste differences in region and roast. The hopper feeds beans into the burrs smoothly and has yet to jam.

A minor quibble: on the coarsest setting the vibration of the motor can shake the ground container out of alignment from the port, which makes a bit of a mess if I'm not there to hold it in place. Typically I'm grinding on a finer setting, though, so it doesn't come up a lot

Don't buy for expresso
Although I recently bought a Breville Infuser Expresso machine which is fantastic, the Breville Smart Grinder is a disaster. I just returned the second machine after Sur La Table replaced the first. Both worked fine for medium grinding but for expresso grind, the ground coffee would not go through into the container. When I called Breville, they said they recently became aware of this problem but had no solution other than to start the machine on the course setting and then slowly advance to the finer settings. That still didn't work. If expresso is your goal, would not recommend buying this machine
