Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The hopper holds enough beans for numerous cups and is airtight, so it can keep a few days worth of beans fresh and ready to go. the large bevel that adjusts the grind size moves smoothly and has clearly marked settings.
The OXO is speedy, too, grinding nearly 10 grams more coffee in a 15-second interval than either the Baratza Encore or the Capresso.
The hopper of the machine is very spacious and can hold up to 0.75 pounds of coffee and the grinding area can grind 110 grams of coffee at a time which is enough for at least 12 cups of coffee.
In the smallest price bracket possible, the machine is still sophisticated in terms of technology at least by making available 15 different grinding adjustments to get that perfect flavor.

What reviewers didn't like

This is the only area where the OXO isn't a field leader. In our testing we didn't find the noise it emitted to be particularly grating, but it is certainly loud enough to wake someone that is sleeping in the next room.
While it doesn’t grind quite as evenly of finely as the Baratzas, it does come with a wider and more nuanced range of settings than the Capresso.
It does not have grinding time based on the number of cups, the time is in minutes of seconds
The flow of beans to the grinder is also not as smooth as one would want. While being transferred, many a time the beans get stuck somewhere in the middle and thus has to be shaken to resume the flow.
