Capresso Stainless Steel Burr Grinder review

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I got the wife a new Chevy Equinox for our anniversary and the sweet heart that she is, she got me a new adjustable Capresso Stainless Steel Burr Grinder.

This is a top loading grinder that has a removable burr grinder that can be removed and cleaned with the included cleaning brush.

There are 9 grind adjustments and 12 different grind time settings.

The container that catches the ground spice is removable and easy to use.

I tested it out tonight with pepper. I made 5 different grinds all on the time setting of 2. There are actually 9 setting on the grinder but I only made grinds on the odd settings between 1-9.

 

The grinder did what I wanted it too. I got from almost a cracked pepper grind on 9 and a fine pepper on 1.

In the picture below from back right to left ( settings 9-7-5) then front left to right are (settings 3-1)

There is a visual difference between the grinds. I just need to make some sausage and try out the grinder on a real recipe.

She bought it at Sur La Table and they told my wife if it did not do what I needed it to do then just to bring it back for a refund.

This grinder is well worth the money spent on it and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to get a better controlled grind then a one speed $19 coffee grinder.

 

Thanks for reading my review.

Thanks for the review Robert, I smoked my $19 one last weekend and been looking for something better. I'll look into this one.

I have a burr grinder too. Mine is a Cuisinart.

 

They are hard to beat. You can't get real coarse ground pepper without one.

Al, that is exactly why I got one. I want more control over my grind and a more consistant grind to repeat then same results from a recipe over and over.

Dan, I believe this unit is well worth the money my wife spent on it. I have been using a$19 one myself and this unit is far superior.

glad some of youk are able to use this information.

Enjoy your day.

Robert, I sincerely hope the brush cleans it good; I had only one Coffee Grinder for everything,icon_eek.gif and needed some Spices for a cook. Needless to say,being in a hurry,I didn't clean it right away... next weekend I was gonna relax and have a pot of Coffee. Well,I cleaned all the Spices out and ground the coffee, worst I have ever haddevil.gifsaid a few choice words and dumped the Coffee and got Trish , went Garage saling and found another (this one I ask if they had ground Spices with it and they said no , so )and got  one. I am now and forever will ,be a 2 grinder Man.
