From The Manufacturer
A truly perfect brew starts with ground coffee, but it takes the right grinder to help coffee beans unlock their full flavor potential. The OXO On Conical Burr Coffee Grinder’s intelligent, built-in scale precisely measures coffee as you grind. Choose from 3 grinding modes: cup mode using pre-set ratio of 8 grams per cup, grams mode to grind the exact amount of grams you like, or manual mode to grind by time. The Grinder's high torque/low-speed DC motor helps keep beans from overheating while grinding; the conical burrs create a consistent and uniform grind for optimal flavor extraction. Whether you like strong or mild, espresso or drip, French Press or pour-over, the OXO Conical Burr Coffee Grinder helps you get the grounds you need to make your perfect cup. It's easy to tare the scale to get a precise read or if you'd like to use a different container for grinding. Here's how you do it: Press and hold the OXO button, until the ring around the button blinks and the menu mode appears (keep holding!). The button light will turn red and there will be a three-second countdown on the display; keep pressing the button until you reach "0". That's it! You're ready to grind!

Review Melt Fun Fact
It may seem like perfectly grinding coffee beans is a modern convenience. But that’s not the case. In fact, coffee grinders have a long and curious past.
The very first coffee grinders were primitive. Ancient coffee lovers had to use stones to grind their coffee beans. It wasn’t until the 15th century, that people began using the spice grinder instead of stones. They could grind coffee much finer than rocky predecessors. It sufficed for a couple more centuries before people got inventive.
In the late 17th century, Nicholas Book invented the earliest coffee mill.
More coffee mill variations soon followed and by the end of the 19th century, most homes in Europe and the u.s. had a coffee grinder. By that time, the technology was essentially perfected.
