The last time I reviewed a coffee grinder I expressed extreme disappointment because it came from Black and Decker and I thought they would be able to make a decent grinder since they are so good at building tools that chop and screw anything together. My family felt kinda bad but they did laugh because there is something entertaining to them about watching me use a paper clip to help grind coffee beans.
So for Father's Day they decided to bestow me with another coffee grinder. And man, this one is a beauty. This time they got me one made by-gasp!- Mr. Coffee. And man, am I a satisfied daddy!
This grinder does almost everything but make coffee. First you pour the beans in according to the convenient chart for how many tablespoons=how many cups of coffee. Then you can select the button for how many cups you are going to make. You then select if you want fine, medium, or a coarse grind. Just having that option alone is impressive!
Here is my favorite part. Once you figure out how much and how fine the coffee is going to be, just press the button and hold- the Mr. Coffee grinder will automatically stop when it is supposed to!
And you don't have to worry about any more mess or spillage of grinds when you pour them into your coffee maker. The top portion of the grinder is removable and comes with a convenient spout and lift-up lid. Not only that, there is a miniature "sweeper" inside the cup so that you can get all the grinds off of the side.
I'm in love with my new Mr. Coffee grinder. At $20 it is a steal.
