    I got the wife a new Chevy Equinox for our anniversary and the sweet heart that she is, she got me a new adjustable Capresso Stainless Steel Burr Grinder.


    This is a top loading grinder that has a removable burr grinder that can be removed and cleaned with the included cleaning brush.



    There are 9 grind adjustments and 12 different grind time settings.



    The container that catches the ground spice is removable and easy to use.


    I tested it out tonight with pepper. I made 5 different grinds all on the time setting of 2. There are actually 9 setting on the grinder but I only made grinds on the odd settings between 1-9.

    The grinder did what I wanted it too. I got from almost a cracked pepper grind on 9 and a fine pepper on 1.

    In the picture below from back right to left ( settings 9-7-5) then front left to right are (settings 3-1)


    There is a visual difference between the grinds. I just need to make some sausage and try out the grinder on a real recipe.

    She bought it at Sur La Table and they told my wife if it did not do what I needed it to do then just to bring it back for a refund.

    This grinder is well worth the money spent on it and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to get a better controlled grind then a one speed $19 coffee grinder.

    Thanks for reading my review.

    Thanks for the review Robert, I smoked my $19 one last weekend and been looking for something better. I'll look into this one.

    I have a burr grinder too. Mine is a Cuisinart.

    They are hard to beat. You can't get real coarse ground pepper without one.

    Craig thanks

    Al, that is exactly why I got one. I want more control over my grind and a more consistant grind to repeat then same results from a recipe over and over.

    Dan, I believe this unit is well worth the money my wife spent on it. I have been using a$19 one myself and this unit is far superior.

    glad some of youk are able to use this information.

    Enjoy your day.

    Robert, I sincerely hope the brush cleans it good; I had only one Coffee Grinder for everything,[​IMG]  and needed some Spices for a cook. Needless to say,being in a hurry,I didn't clean it right away... next weekend I was gonna relax and have a pot of Coffee. Well,I cleaned all the Spices out and ground the coffee, worst I have ever had[​IMG]said a few choice words and dumped the Coffee and got Trish , went Garage saling and found another (this one I ask if they had ground Spices with it and they said no , so )and got  one. I am now and forever will ,be a 2 grinder Man.

    JUst sayin'
