  1. David C. Cobb

    A few years ago I was using standard ground coffee. Then I read that using freshly ground improved flavor. I got a Mr.Coffee blade grinder and noticed a real improvement in taste-fresher tasting, less bitter coffee. Then I read about how much better a burr grinder would be. So I got a Mr. Coffee burr grinder. It was fairly cheap and was a big disappointment. While I noticed a slight improvement in flavor, the machine itself was unpredictable and messy. One morning after once again sweeping uneven grounds off my kitchen counter and sipping weak coffee I had enough and decided the Mr. Coffee burr grinder had to go. After a little research I found this little Bodum burr grinder on Amazon. It was well reviewed and seemed a good compromise between quality and price. I ordered one and then followed 4 years of coffee bliss. Once I got the grind size and grind time dialed in, this machine delivered a consistent ground size and quantity that led to a cup of coffee I could rely on. No need to measure the proper tablespoon amount. I just had to empty the grounds chamber directly into the coffee filter. No fuss or mess. I was awarded with a consistent tasting cup of coffee daily with minimal effort is what I need first thing in the morning.

    Alas, after 4 years or so this little machine lost its oomph and could grind no more. It would start the cycle and then stop. Sadly I finally said farewell and went back to the Mr. Coffee. Well, history repeated itself and after again sweeping coffee grounds off the counter, I ordered another Bodum. The second works just as well as the first one did and I am once again a happy morning coffee drinker.

    My only real criticism is that this machine is a little noisy, but the noise only lasts for a little over 5 seconds and for me the resulting improvement in convenience and taste is worth it. I know there are better machines out there but you really pay for those. This little Bodum does what I need it to do at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

    I like this coffee grinder, it is easy to use and the grind size is consistent. The 3 things that could be improved.
    1) the instructions – there are none.
    On the clear plastic lid that covers the hopper where the beans go, there is inscribed a table that makes no sense. The rows are supposed to be amount of coffee cups and the columns are time which I presume is time to grind. But the symbols within the table are unclear. And this seems irrelevant as you keep grinding until the jar collecting the grinds is full.
    – What I WANTED to know:
    A) How to set up the machine. Especially how to adjust the grind size. After looking online I tried to follow their instructions to rotate the hopper with the beans but it stuck and I was afraid of breaking it. I tried again the next day and eventually I was above to rotate the upper piece.
    B) How many beans you could grind at a time. The first time I did not come close to filling the hopper but it was too many beans and I could not get the jar out until I turned the machine sideways and pulled hard, spilling a lot of grinds and the rest of the beans still in the hopper all over my counter. I still do not know how many I can put in so I just waste time putting in several small batches.
    2) the status electricity that causes grinds to cling to the glass jar that collects them. Not a big deal with kind of annoying.
    3) customer purchase support. I had a question before I decided to buy it. I hunted to find a phone number and did find one on their web site but the number was out of service. I had a tech support question and found a email but no one got back to me. I took a chance and ordered it anyway.

    The good news is the machine itself seems to work well and does not take up too much space. And I can wipe out the glass jar with a paper towel to remove the grinds that stick to the inside surface. So overall I’m happy with it.

    But the Bodum brand equity took a hit from the issues noted above. A good product with bad instructions and poor customer support.

    I have researched these things for hours before deciding to buy this unit. Here are my findings:

    There are three units that were in the running (ordered by price):

    a. Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder (the unit on this page and the one I ultimately bought and am very happy with) – $89.99
    b. 

    Breville BCG800XL Smart Grinder

     – $199.99
    c. 

    Rancilio ROCKY Rancilio Burr Grinder with Doser

     – $359.99

    Now, if price is not an issue, by all means go with the Breville BCG800XL (really can’t go wrong with that one). Also, notice that all of these are burr grinders (blade grinders are NOT the way to go) and all are excellent machines; all other machines researched under $400 have serious drawbacks – trust me – I’ve done the research.

    Okay, now let’s take a look at each one.

    — a. 

    Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder, Black

     – this is an excellent unit all around and the one I bought:

    — Grind:
    Very consistent and perfect size for drip on drip setting; I have tried this with a drip coffee maker and it is excellent. Some say that it can’t quite match the best machines out there for a cappuccino grind (i.e. very very very fine for very very picky machines) but I do not have a cappuccino machine and so this does not really concern me all that much.

    — Mess:
    Awesome, no mess at all. The glass catcher reduces the static on the grinds so that they do not jump (no idea how some complain about mess); no mess here.
    After catcher is removed, no excess coffee spills out.

    — Noise:
    Not very loud at all; I thought it would be louder. Two scaredy cats in my house and both did not even wake up (same room as the appliance).

    — Cleanup:
    Super easy; just rinse the catcher and you are done.

    — Features:
    Timer -> 5-20 second; set it once, and it stays from grind to grind. 10 seconds was perfect for my mug (4 cups).

    — Build Quality:
    Excellent all around with a glass catcher and plastic hopper. The burrs are very well machined.

    — Looks/Size:
    The machine is on the small size but very good looking (I have a black one).

    — Cons:
    Motor “should” (at least that is what the manual recommends) rest for 5 minutes before every 20 second grind. Really, for me, this is not an issue as 20 seconds produces about 6-8 cups of medium strength coffee.
    Bean hopper is not tinted so leaving beans in it (especially in the light) may not be a great idea but you should not leave beans in the hopper in any case as suggested by all of the other machine’s manuals.
    Some claim that very very fine cappuccino grinds are not acceptable for very picky cappuccino machines; go figure.
    Adjusting the grind size can only be done with the motor running (or so claims the manual). Not a big deal for me since I do not plan to adjust it … well … ever after the initial setting (doesn’t have to have beans in it but just running motor while adjusting).

    — b. 

    Breville BCG800XL Smart Grinder

     – if money is not an issue, why not – I could find really nothing wrong with it except the price.

    — Grind:
    From doing much research, this thing really gets it right for anything you want; even the pickiest cappuccino machines like this thing. French press is also no problem.

    — Mess:
    No mess; static is eliminated by their special technology that slows the coffee grinds before they get to the catcher.

    — Noise:
    Very quite.

    — Cleanup:
    Cannot comment on cleanup but people have said that it is not a problem.

    — Features:
    Built in doser – very nice; will auto grind correct amount based on your cup and strength setting.
    Nice LCD screen.
    Bean hopper is tinted.

    — Build Quality:
    Customers claim that it is very solid and well built.

    — Looks/Size:
    Looks very nice.

    — Cons:
    Price.

    — c. 

    Rancilio ROCKY Rancilio Burr Grinder with Doser

     – if you want the best, this is it for a reasonable price (reasonable to some, all depends).

    Specs:
    I am not going to go into detail about this one but needless to say that those very serious about their cappuccino grind, etc. and for whom money is no issue should probably get this machine. Frankly, for this much money, I see no reason.

    Conclusion:
    – The Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder is an excellent all around machine with very minor (at least to me) drawbacks and if one is to consider the price/performance ratio, simply cannot be beat. Best of luck and hope this review saves some hours of research.

    Seems to work well and is quieter than my previous grinder. With its glass canister, ground coffee doesn’t fly all over when the canister is removed and the ground coffee poured into the coffee maker.

    I bought this grinder 3 years ago and it still works as good as the first day I used it. Sure, it’s a little noisy but it’s only 20 seconds worth and I just make sure I use it when everyone is awake (early evening the day before I need the coffee).

    Although it is not static proof (not sure that there is such a thing) the glass container with the lid keeps fly away grounds to almost nothing. Vast improvement over our Capresso. It is also quieter. The tight fitting lid and the precise timer works for those who fill the hopper. The attractive compact design looks nice and saves a little counter space. Been using it for about 3 months now and would recommend it.

    I am very happy with this grinder at this price point. The grind is not as consistent as I would have hoped. For a french press grind (course grind) the grind is very uneven, easily solved by moving the grind control indicator a few notches finer. It is not messy at all. There is a good seal between the grind catcher and the machine so no grinds escape. There is a bit of static, but nothing really to complain about. As mentioned in other reviews, it is a bit of a mystery why the power button is upside down. Up should be ON and down should be OFF. Finally, the metal burr that needs to be installed by the user is covered in grease on the gears. No mention in the instruction book whether this grease ever has to be reapplied. I would definitely buy again.

    The media could not be loaded.

     I bought this almost two years ago for the office (purchased in March 2018), where it has working without issue. It’s used 2-3 times per day every workday, and receives virtually no love (or cleaning out).

    At home, I’ve had a Cuisinart DBM-8C and am now using a Braun KG7070 which I’ll compare to in this review.

    WALK-AROUND – Bodum Bistro
    This grinder has an all-plastic exterior (except the glass output jar). The plastic is matte which makes it look surprisingly good. The bean hopper can be rotated to allow you to select grind coarseness. On the top of the unit is the timer dial (allows you to select 5 to 20second grind times) and a “go” button. On the side of the unit is a power button. At the office, we leave the timer set to approximately 8 seconds (press “go” once for a half pot, twice for a full pot) and the power button is always on.

    NORMAL USE
    This grinder works like most other grinders – pour in your beans, replace the hopper lid, select coarseness, select grind time and hit Start. Ground coffee lands in the lower hopper, and you can pull it out, remove the lid, and dump into your coffee maker. The lower hopper is glass which minimizes static cling relative to the grinders I’ve used at home. Also, because the grinds come from above, the unit is not prone to “leaking” grinds or getting jammed.

    CONSISTENCY & GRIND QUALITY
    Coarseness can be adjusted over a large scale to allow fine-tuning; there are images to suggest what coarseness is appropriate for the type of coffee being made. Grind quality is excellent in the “drip filter” range, and very consistent. We don’t grind espresso or have a French press at the office, so I can’t comment on those settings.

    NOISE LEVEL
    This grinder is incredibly loud, much louder than my Cuisinart or Braun units at home. Not a big deal, but if quiet operation is important, check out the Braun 7070.

    THE GOOD
    + Stands up well under high use
    + Consistent grind quality
    + No issues with clogging
    + No mess or “leakage” of grinds that I experience with other grinders

    THE BAD
    – Lid on fresh bean hopper fits loosely; should provide airtight seal
    – High price relative to other grinders
    – Occasionally the timer “kicks” out immediately and you need to re-press

    OTHER NOTES
    There is a similar-looking Bodum grinder that costs less – it doesn’t include a timer. I strongly recommend buying a grinder with a timer (such as this one) for easy and consistent pots of coffee.

    OVERALL
    I’ve been recommending this grinder since we got one for the office, and two friends have picked one up in that time – both are happy with it. The only caveat is that if you require quiet operation, you should consider another option (I suggest Braun 7070, but this unit requires additional cleaning because of the rear-fed grind hopper design).

    Love this grinder! First one worked super nice. Fairly quiet. All of a sudden it sounded like the insides came apart. Did not get the warranty offered. Big mistake! Had to correspond with manufacturer for a few weeks. After finally getting a video to go through they responded with a brand new unit. Thanks Bodum. You certainly have a repeat customer. Will certainly purchase the warranty offered on my next big purchase.

    It grinds quickly to the grind you want.
    Its small.
    It’s non-static glass container is fantastic, as all the coffee grinds stay in the container and all come out with a few gentle knocks on the container into the coffee filter.
    I also have a larger Braun coffee grinder, but a certain amount coffee grinds end up on the counter or floor or sink due to static.
    So, I have to clean the surface around the grinder.
    All this is missing with the Bodum static free grinder.
    It’s a bit more expensive than other brands, but I am very happy that I bought it.
