I picked this up at my local store in order to evaluate it against other models, such as Capresso Cool Blade, Mr. Coffee, KitchenAid and, finally, the Krups F203. I already had a Bodum Electric French Press, which I LOVE, so I expected to be suitably impressed with their blade grinder. Was I ever WRONG! This appears to be the same machine as the KitchenAid BCG111ER coffee grinder, albeit with a great & grippy rubber jacket. Both this Bodum and the KitchenAid, which I briefly owned before returning, are fairly ineffective at coarsely grinding 3-4 scoops of coffee beans. After grinding for 45 seconds to 1 minute or more it delivers a very uneven grind with plenty of half-ground beans left. I am returning the Bodum blade grinder today and will be keeping my new Krups F203, which easily handles an even grind every time.
