From The Manufacturer

The Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder with adjustable grind is our premier coffee grinder. Our conical burr crushes beans as opposed to slicing them (with your typical blade grinder); ensuring consistency, while preserving the bean’s intrinsic flavor and aroma. This burr grinder is continuously adjustable - twisting the upper bean container determines how finely ground the beans will be. 12 settings from coarse to fine, you can deliver the ideal grind for any brewing method. The Bistro coffee grinder comes with a static-free borosilicate glass container with rubberized grip to catch and safely transfer the grounds while preventing 'jumping' coffee grounds.

What experts liked

Well-constructed
- Roasty
The Bodum Bistro burr grinder looks less like a dull kitchen appliance and more like a fancy restaurant gizmo.
- Home Grounds
This grinder combines being cheap enough to not be a serious investment with actual quality that may be enough for some users to not ever upgrade it.
- The Coffee Chronicler
The BODUM BISTRO Burr Coffee Grinder features simple controls for folks who want to set it and forget it.

What experts didn't like

Instead of borosilicate glass, this machine has a plastic coffee catching container. This shouldn’t seriously impact the longevity of the machine but it may impact the amount of static your beans are exposed to.
- Roasty
The burrs themselves seem to be built to last, but the machine parts are not of the greatest quality and will likely need replacement in a couple of years
- Home Grounds
This model obviously does not grind with the same level of uniformity as something double the price, but it is surprisingly consistent as compared to other entry-level models
- The Coffee Chronicler
Filled bean hopper spills beans if removed
