Can the Burr on the Cuisinart CBM-18 be replaced; and if so what is the cost?
Herbert, thank you for your post. For that information, you will want to contact Cuisinart directly-we do not stock parts for their products. They can be reached at 1-800-726-0190.
I've had this grinder for about 3 years and use it mostly for French press. I've been very happy with its performance for my needs. I was grinding some beans for my morning coffee yesterday and the grinder started making a horrible, high pitched noise. It turns out, there was a small rock in the beans that jammed the burrs. I've never had this happen before. I was able to remove the rock, and get the bottom burr spinning again. But now, when faced grinding beans even on a fairly coarse grind, the bottom burr locks up. Any suggestions? It seems like my grinder may be a goner.
Thanks for your post. I do apologize, we don't have a lot of information regarding the Cuisinart grinders because they do all of their own technical support in house. They can be reached at 1-800-726-0190
I have a Breville double boiler, looking for a new grinder as this Cuisinart cant seem to grind fine enough. I am considering the Breville smart grind. Any recommendations?
The Brevilel is ok not great for espresso. Try the Baratza Vario , my favorite, or the Baratza Preciso or the Rancilio Rocky as good alternatives.
what do you think about the Breville Smart Grinder
Is this grinder truly incapable of grinding fine enough for espresso? My wife purchased one from an online discount retailer who will not accept returns once the item was used. I have had to drastically overfill the portafilter on my Gaggia Color and tamp with nearly my body weight to reach twenty seconds of brew time. Any advice would be appreciated.
This grinder does a good job for things like drip coffee and French Press. It cannot grind fine enough nor consistent enough to really make a quality espresso.
Thanks for the response. I thought I may have got a lemon, but it appears it was only wishful thinking!
