Yes, another Cutlery & More Deal of the Week. They send me the emails and if I think it's worthwile I post it. This week is a good price on a burr coffee grinder. I could not find the manufacturer, but if you grind you own coffee then a burr grinder is the way to go. The blade grinders are only good for spices and peppers IMHO. Here is the link - Cutlery & More DOTW

Having spent the past 3 weeks trying to decide on a new grinder I think I've seen every single one out there. This does not look familiar. I can't believe it's any good at that price, meaning a consistent grind without fines and chunks.

Having said that, $15 plus $6 shipping is not a huge investment, especially if their 365 days return policy is accurate. (Although I'll bet the return shipping is on you and the loss of the $6 outgoing shipping would make it a wash.) Burr grinders that do a decent job are not cheap, but if you're not too picky about the coffee you drink and you just want freshly ground as opposed to the preground crap in cans at the store, this may be worth a try.

For Mr. Wizzard, I use the Kitchenaid Pro Burr Grinder and really like it. But it is pricey. I got mine on Amazon a few years back for a C-Note. Others tend to run around $40. The reason I like the Kitchenaid is that the plates are replaceable.

Make sure it is conical burr. I think it is worth the extra costs.

Otherwise just grind your beans where you bought it regularly. I'm sure they will grind it for free.

Thanks OP. In for 3.

Switching to a burr grinder has been great but I'm concerned about the quality and longevity of a $15 grinder. Could be a great grinder. Who knows?

it says it is made by MIU, which I can't locate through google search. The best name in Burr Grinders is Raymond.
