What customers say about "Key Specs"
Capresso 560.01 Infinity Burr Grinder
  • Great machine that grinds coffee consistently and easy to care for.
  • I grind my coffee for a French press, but the Capresso can be set for any type of grind you'd like.
  • Lots of grind settings to find the one that works best for your equipment
  • So this little grinder is exactly what I wanted. It's compact, has a nice capacity hopper, and can do espresso grinds.
  • I tried grinding at various grind settings and there wasn't really much, if any, variation in the size of the grind.
  • Disappointed. Settings for coarse grind are too fine for my liking. Takes quite awhile (compared to my old grinder) to grind a pots worth of beans.
  • Even on the coarsest setting the coffee grinds pretty darn fine.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Capresso 560.01 Infinity Burr Grinder
  • It has good weight without being too heavy to pick up and move easily.
  • The grinds are consistent and the machine is well made in spite of its light weight.
  • It is durable, and I have never had any mechanical problems with it.
  • Very quiet, great consistant grind, solid build, smart design!
  • The removable ground coffee container allows some of the grounds to collect behind where the container has to be inserted which prevents the container from seating properly.
  • Excellent grinder but not very durable.
  • Did not even last 3 months. Not durable at all.

What customers say about "Features"
Capresso 560.01 Infinity Burr Grinder
  • As per the manufacturer, there are no parts made of critical plastics in contact with food
  • The grinding timer and adjustable texture allows a precise control over quantity and fineness, reducing waste and easily accommodating brewing methods from espresso-fine to coarse french press.
  • So convenient, grinds very fine, love the timer so you can simply twist and let it grind while do get your coffee set up ready.
  • One good thing I learned can be done is that the basket and the bean hopper can both be put in the top rack of the dishwasher
  • Love the grind, dislike the timer.
  • The only thing I might wish for is better storage for excess power cord.

What customers say about "Power"
Capresso 560.01 Infinity Burr Grinder
  • It is great. Powerful and quiet.
  • Use this grinder everyday. Nice and powerful. Not loud
  • t's quiet, powerful and grinds the beans just right.
  • Works great, powerful, relatively quite, great choice of grinds, and value for the money.
  • Not as powerful as another product (Virtuoso?) I've had in the past, but it's half the cost, too.
  • After 6 months it has stopped working at the fine setting. It seems like the motor is not powerful enough to grind the beans for expresso setting.
