Burr Coffee Grinders
My Cuisinart Supreme just crapped out and I need a new grinder. I want to upgrade but don't want to spend more than $200 (preferably less). Amazon recommends the OXO

Or the Cuisinart

Does anyone have any real life recs?

Thanks

Capresso conical burr grinder

I use this. Works well. Don’t know anything about the ones you are looking at.

I’ve bought three cheap burr grinders off amazon in the past 18 months. Each about $40. Definitely spend a few bucks, because the cheapies crap out.

My Cuisinart coffee maker has a built in bur grinder. Works really well for me.

re: Burr Coffee Grinders
I had a $100 electric burr grinder (the Capresso linked above) that broke after a year...and I was kind of glad because it was noisy and a bitch to clean.

Since then, I've purchased this hand grinder and it works perfectly...just takes a bit more effort.

I've been using the Oxo for about 3 years (grind daily) with no issues

I have the Capresso. Still works fine after a few years.

But it is hard to clean.

Love my Baratza Encore as well. I use it for drip most days but it also grinds course for my aero drip when camping.

If mine shite the bed tomorrow I’d go buy another.

Baratzas look good but they don’t have a grind timer or weight (#cups) control as best I can tell. I like to set for 6 or 8 cups.

re: Burr Coffee Grinders
You have to just weigh out the amount of beans you want before putting them in the grinder, which is easy with a $15 scale

re: Burr Coffee Grinders
You only need to weigh once—-then see what the equivalent dry measure is. Then you’ll know to scoop 2/3, or 3/4 cup or whatever amount of whole beans by volume. Buy a plastic measuring cup that size, and you’ll never need to be awake enough to use the scale before making coffee.

Not a good method if you want repeatability. Coffee has different densities and mass and such. Take two different coffees and use your scoop and then weigh them tell me how different they are. Using a scale will get you great repeatability.

Baratza Sette 270Wi.

Pricey, but well worth it if you do espresso. It has grind by weight functionality.
