About the Product
The BISTRO Burr Grinder crushes beans between stainless steel conical burrs rather than slicing them which preserves bean’s intrinsic flavor and aroma and provides a consistent grind; no sharpening required.
The Encore is lauded by coffee experts as THE go-to entry level grinder for those brewing coffee at home. The Encore gives a great grind for drip/manual brew and also grinds fine enough for espresso.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
BODUM Bistro Electric Electronic Coffee Grinder with Continuously Adjustable Grind
  • I liked the grind settings.
  • I love the settings on the hopper, very spot on and I love how easy it is to clean.
  • love being able to set the grind to our desired preference, it's really upped the level of coffee/espresso brewing in the house, coming off of a series of standard coffee grinders.
  • Quality grind, low noise, very little mess, and reasonable capacity!
  • Relatively small capacity per grind
  • The fine settings doesn't grind too fine. Might be good for drip and french press, but not the best option for espressos.
  • This grinder did ok, but on the fine setting it wasn't quite fine enough.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
BODUM Bistro Electric Electronic Coffee Grinder with Continuously Adjustable Grind
  • The unit as a whole is very sturdy, and there are some excellent engineering touches like the grippy rubber body and static-free grind collector.
  • he quality and sturdiness of the grinder is better than others that I have had and is worth the extra cost.
  • Main concern is the overall feeling of being very light weight, but it does stand put on the counter.
  • Very light weight, not hard to clean and it has an on and off switch that is nice to have on the unit.
  • Lots of plastic & light weight, all grinds do not empty, a few bangs on the side and they fall.
  • Glass grounds catcher is flimsy and Will break.
  • A lot of the parts are flimsy plastic where you wouldn't expect it for this price

What customers say about "Features"
BODUM Bistro Electric Electronic Coffee Grinder with Continuously Adjustable Grind
  • I love that I can grind only as much as I need by setting the timer, so every morning I have freshly ground beans.
  • The Bodum has a "timer" function rather than being based on how many cups are being ground for, but the concept is pretty much the same.
  • It's easy to throw the jar and cap into the dishwasher
  • In-machine cord storage
  • The cord winds up inside if it's close to an outlet.
  • The product doesn't say "BPA free" anywhere, so it does have BPA.
  • If the flask lid is destroyed, ours accidentally melted in the bottom of the dishwasher!) it can NOT be replaced
  • Timer stopped working correctly after a couple months.

What customers say about "Power"
BODUM Bistro Electric Electronic Coffee Grinder with Continuously Adjustable Grind
  • Quiet operation compared with some other machines
  • Awesome. Small & powerful grinder.
  • This grinder is slightly smaller than most, but it's still a powerful grinder.
  • I've only ground a few shots worth of espresso and already it has stopped working. The motor struggles, speeding up, then slowing down.
  • It doesn't work at all anymore after a few months. Motor and grinder not powerful enough and it just stopped grinding. Disappointing product.
