    Pros: Grinds a large amount all at once.
    Cons: VERY messy and noisy.

    Summary: My husband and I are picky about our coffee. We buy gourmet whole beans and grind them for "fresh as can be" coffee. When we saw the Black & Decker Smart Grind coffee grinder at Christmas time, we thought it looked like a wonderful idea! How ... read more

    Pros: Easy to put the beans in and to measure amount.
    Cons: Very messy which eventualy leads to its demise.

    Summary: I bought this grinder to replace a much used blade grinder. It was only $15 and $5 more than getting the same one again. That and the ability to adjust the grind size I couldn't resist. Before too long however;Just how many things can I list for ... read more

  • Just say "No" to this attempt at a burr grinder

    Jul 5, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive burr grinder. It does actually grind the beans.
    Cons: Unbelievable mess, mostly from static electricity. Actually soots coffee dust around the kitchen.

    Summary: I'm unwilling to pay $100 or more for a burr grinder, because I don't think it will improve my coffee drinking experience or life that much. I paid $100 or so (on sale) for my Starbucks Barrista Aroma Grande coffee maker, so I'm not cheap about my ... read more

  • Best Burr Grinder you can get for 20 bucks

    Apr 22, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap and works well.
    Cons: Messy and fragile.

    Summary: As everyone else has noted, this grinder can get pretty messy, and some of the plastic is fragile. I've found that it's not particularly messy if you give the grounds-container a few good taps on the top before removing. Static is an issue with any ... read more

  • Great concept, horrible execution!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great concept
    Cons: Terrible design, very messy, impractical for daily use, difficult to clean

    Summary: I am the VP of R&D for a consumer product company. I develop products for a living. This product is a great concept that was just absolutely botched in the design. The idea of having a hopper full of beans with the ability to grind enough for a pot ... read more

    Pros: Reasonable price, easy to use, many features, burr type grinder
    Cons: No cleaning brush, noisy, lots of plastic

    Summary: Mostly I use canned coffee here at home but every now and then I like to use whole beans and try something different, mostly on weekends or after a nice dinner. To me the idea of buying whole beans and then grinding them at the store is defeating the ... read more

  • Don't waste your money

    Aug 28, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive for a burr grinder
    Cons: Poor quality and design

    Summary: This grinder is no better than a blade grinder. It will grind adequately for drip coffee, but does not grind anywhere near fine enough for espresso. B&D says it will produce a Turkish grind--this is nonsense. It is very poorly made and ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to determine # of cups to grind
    Cons: messy, plastic parts break easily.

    Summary: The plastic container generates static electricity. When the lid is removed, the ground coffee spews everywhere. Durability is lousy, the plastic bean holder cracked after 2 months of use. That is why we are at this site looking for a replacement ... read more

  • It,uh, goes to 11.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes dramatically better coffee than comparably priced blade grinders. A burr grinder for about $30.
    Cons: Sounds like a 747 turbine. Even the finest setting is pretty course.

    Summary: The Black & Decker Smart Grind Deluxe is an economy version of a burr style bean mill priced to compete with flat blade style coffee grinders (which average in price at about $20.) Does it mill fine enough to make the espresso it claims it ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, inexpensive, and inexpensive
    Cons: Noisy, messy, flimsy

    Summary: I bought this grinder for 10C$ at a discount store. At that price, I couldn't resist. Well, I should have ! It's noisy, and I mean noisy. The burrs are made of plastic and I accidently broke one while trying to clean the unit. Speaking of ... read more

    Pros: It was a gift I paid nothing for it.
    Cons: This product can't do what it was made for

    Summary: This grinder lasted less than two weeks. The beans did not fall down into the grinder without tapping on it because the slots in the bean container are to small. The chute where the grounds fly out of into the ground container clogs up every other time I ... read more

    Pros: Small, stores easily. Good grind range. Dependable. Easy to clean. Great price.
    Cons: I'm being picky when I mention static. It's not that bad.

    Summary: I've had this grinder for over a year now and it works quite well. Grinds beans fine enough for a decent espresso, as well as, for coffee. It does deliver static but not so bad that I can't live with it. The machine is easy to clean (I use a small brush ... read more

    Pros: Black; On/Off switch; Dial-in quantity
    Cons: Weak motor; Horrible design; messy

    Summary: This grinder is SO messy! Coffee grounds end up everywhere on the counter, the tray below the output cup fills with grounds which stick to the bottom of the cup which then flake onto the counter (again) when the cup is removed. The rubber LID on the ... read more

    Pros: Affordable Burr-Grinder.
    Cons: Plastic pieces cause static cling, use a swifter wipe to solve.

    Summary: Bought as an upgrade from a chopper grinder. Less messy than the grinders found in the local grocery market, though just as noisy. I wipe the outside with a Swifter wipe which seems to keep the static problem in check. Can you imagine the cost of this ... read more
