Cuisinart Burr Grinder

Cuisinart Burr Grinder – DBM-8 “Supreme Grind”


How do you make your coffee?  A cup at a time with pour-over?  A Chemex pot?  Automatic drip?  French press?  This affordable burr grinder from Cuisinart has you covered.

Product Description

What makes a burr grinder better than the much less expensive blade grinders?  A consistent grind.  With a blade grinder, coffee beans are chopped into pieces that vary greatly in size.  After 20 seconds or so in a blade grinder, some of the coffee will still be in large chunks, while some will have turned into a fine powder.  This makes it difficult to get a good cup of coffee, because each style of brewing requires a different kind of grind (finer for automatic drip, coarser for french press, for example).

Burr grinders, on the other hand, excel at consistent grinds: you set the coarseness you need.

This Cuisinart DBM-8 “Supreme Grind” grinder is a great entry-level burr grinder: it’s affordable, and will give you exactly the grind you need.  It’s great for any style of coffee except espresso.  (For that, you might consider the Baratza Vario.)  The Cuisinart grinder features:

  • a dial to adjust the grind: from very fine to very coarse
  • an adjustable timer that automatically shuts off the grinder
  • a cleaning brush
  • an 18-month warranty from Cuisinart
