    It’s OK here’s my updated review for the price. It’s a fair enough deal. The top works OK. The coffee does stick in the ball after you grind it. You gotta use your finger. Spoon to get it out each time but considering the low price it does the job.

    There are several brands of these economy electric blade grinders that all perform very similarly. I’ve bought and used the Oster, the Krupps, the Mr. Coffee version, and this Bodum Bistro. They all grind coffee with a very similar result, being less uniform than a burr-type grinder. But they are convenient and fast as long as a perfect grind isn’t a high priority. While the blades are not intended to be actually sharp on any of them, they all get “dull” after several hundred uses and start taking longer and longer to achieve a fine grind. So, I end up buying a new one about once a year. And they are all noisy. As a safety feature, they all have a momentary switch that can only be activated with the cover installed. This is to prevent a person from operating the grinder without the cover (as getting fingers hit), and to prevent a person from burning up the motor by leaving it run too long. We are currently using this Bodum grinder and a reasonably happy with it. :

    Deeper bowl holds more beans than some other brands.
    Heavier weight than other brands which MAY mean more robust and longer life motor.

    Non-removable bowl makes it harder to clean
    Cover design makes this grinder a little messier than others

    I like this grinder best at this time for what is probably a rather uncommon reason. That is, we use very fine espresso-grind which requires a longer grind time. I get tired of waiting while holding down the activation switch with my hand. I want to be preparing other aspects of the coffee at the same time the beans are grinding. The design of the on/off switch on this Bodum grinder, which is a push DOWN, lets me hold the switch down with a weight, to let the grinder do it’s thing while I step away for a moment. I know well enough not to let it run so long that the motor over heats, so I don’t need the nanny-state protection of a purely momentary switch. This is a small thing, but it satisfies me.

    For cleaning, since I use this grinder every morning, and only for coffee beans, for us it doesn’t need to be cleaned often. When I do want to clean the bowl I just put part of a paper towel in the bowl, turn the grinder on a spin the cleaning towel. It seems to us that there’s no need to clean with soap or water.

    Durable, solid construction. My only want is inclusion of a brush for cleaning out the grinds that stick to the inside (if your beans have any sort of oil content, this could be an issue). I don’t mind having old grinds in the bottom, as it doesn’t really ruin the flavour of my coffee. The only other qualm I have is that it is possible to put the lid on such that the red button doesn’t align with the notch cut for it. You can feel the lid flex a bit if you accidentally do this. I’m gentle with my tools, so I don’t think it’ll be an issue, but there could be potential for breakage if you misalign the lid and clamp down on it.

    Update (2015-04-28):
    This thing is a motor and a switch, but it’s taken over an hour for me to get this thing disassembled. What I notice is a lot of crimping, not much soldering (and what is soldered looks to be corroding). Point of failure seems to be snapped winding wire from the motor (was directly crimped to lead of thermal fuse connected to mains input lead). They do try to zip-tie this feeble connection down to provide some stability, but it’s not enough. This thing lasted 5 months before failing so badly, that I don’t suspect the average user would be able to repair this themselves. I can’t assure you that the innards of other products are any better, but I can tell you that I would never purchase this product again.

    The only thing I would improve is making lead a little shorter, it will reduce amount of beans you put in but it will also make process cleaner when you open a lead after grinding and coffee powder will not spill over.

    I’m very impressed with this little thing. I bought this grinder July 2019 and still use it to this day (and I make coffee almost every morning). No, it’s not top of the line, but it’s great if you’re just looking to grind whole bean.

    I bought it for my apartment since I was limited on space and didn’t want something sitting on my countertop. I even take it with me if I’m going to an Airbnb for the weekend! It’s conveniently portable.

    I will say that the blades are finally starting the wear down and I’m noticing it in the runtime required for a fine ground coffee, but again, it’s been 3 and 1/2 years. I’d happily buy this gadget all over again.

    Good value for the money. Bought this grinder so I could start my day with fresh ground coffee in my French Press. I read a review where two, 4-second grinds makes for good French Press. Seems to do the trick. The next time I might spend a little more money and buy a burr grinder that can be adjusted so I might get the very BEST French Press coffee. I sometimes have to play with the top before it seats and activates.

    The button doesn’t quite line up when the lid is replaced and I have to fidget with it a bit before it will line up so I can grind my beans. It’s been like that since the first time I ordered it. Not sure if this is a common issue but it sure is super annoying!

    I was very disappointed with this product. I figured since it was a brand name like Bodum, it would be a quality product. Sadly, it is not. The main issue here is that the lid is much too large and so when you start to grind, you inevitably will get loose grinds flying into the space between the lid and the grinder itself. As a result, when you open the lid you end up getting loose grinds flying everywhere making a bit of a mess. I’d say this product needs to go back to get redesigned. Don’t waste your money on this, there are plenty better grinders out there.

    I find the coffee grinder itself to be pretty quiet, however the beans being knocked around still wakes up everyone in the house in the morning.
    The machine itself is a bit hard to clean, probably best if you have a little brush or just leave the little bits of coffee ground left over in the machine and forget about it.
    The lid seems to sometimes struggle to close and I would have to re-align it.

    Good little grinder. It’s very important to hold down the lid when in use (per user manual). That keeps coffee dust from floating out and into the mechanism built into the lid, that triggers the motor. It keeps the mechanism engaged properly. Tamp down the finished grind before opening the lid (simply tap the unit on the surface you are using), to keep dust from floating out of the unit and into the grinding switch.
    I’ve ruined one due to lack of diligence. Keep a hand on the lid when grinding (pressing the button), tamp down the finished product before opening, and this thing works great. Easy and quick.

    Looks cute, too. I like how the cord wraps out of sight in the bottom.

    Works very well! And it’s quieter than most hand grinders I’ve used. The only problem is it’s a little difficult to clean as there is no basin that you can pull out. But I believe that is a design choice, which makes it quieter than the rest.

    Now, I never expected greatness from this thing. You’re never going to get results from a blade grinder like you would from a more expensive conical burr grinder.
    I bought this one as something cheap to leave at work, so I have other grinding options at home. I’ve got a hand-cranked Porlex burr grinder that I love, and a Krups blade grinder for a quick and dirty, albeit reliable grind.

    That said, my Krups blade grinder produces a much more even grind than this one does. That grinder at least approximates an even grind.

    I bought this model primarily because it’s cheap, but also because I associate Bodum with french presses, so I expected a grinder that would provide a nice coarse grind for French press coffee.

    With this grinder, it seems like if you want a coarser grind like for a French Press, you’re gonna end up with some big old bean chunks.
    I suppose if you want a really fine grind you can just grind the crap out of it until you’ve got fine dust, but if you want a coarser grind, expect unevenness and big chunks.

    The tolerance on the cap is a bit sloppy, it’s got a bit of wiggle to it that my Krups doesn’t have.

    Again. It works; it’ll do, but you can do a lot better.

    Spend the extra 10 bucks on a Krups, or better yet, shell out for a burr grinder. You get what you pay for, I suppose.
