With a choice of 20 grind settings, programmable grind volume, and high quality conical burrs, the Krups GX6000 Burr Grinder is more than just an affordable solution to your grinding needs. The GX6000 can be set to grind between 2 and 12 cups with the push of a button using a timer system the automatic stops the burrs when the right volume of coffee has been produced. The ground coffee is dispensed into a removable, anti-static container located on the front of the grinder that can hold up to 12 cups. The bean hopper features a freshness lid and holds up to 8oz of whole beans. As a safeguard, the grinder will automatically stop if the container is not in place or if the bean hopper is removed.
To prevent overheating and aroma loss, the grinder uses high quality conical burrs that ensure consistent even grinding that can be set to 1 of 20 different degrees of fineness for a number of preparation methods. For easy cleaning, the burrs are removable and accessed by removing the bean hopper.
The Krups GX6000 is backed by a 2-Year Manufacturer's Warranty
Programmable Grinding and Multiple Fineness Settings
The GX6000 can be set to grind between 2 and 12 cups worth of coffee with the push of a button. With 20 fineness settings ranging from ultra fine to coarse, you can grind your coffee to match the preparation method of your choice.
Removable Conical Grinding Burrs
For easy cleaning, the conical burrs can be removed entirely for thorough removal of stuck grounds and coffee particles. The conical burrs help to prevent overheating and aroma loss while grinding.
Auto Shut-Off Safety Features
As a safety feature, the GX6000 will not run when the bean hopper is removed or when the anti-static coffee container is removed.
Is the exit chute, through which grounds pass, entirely vertical, or is there a horizontal segment? Also, are the burrs stainless steel, or some other metal/alloy?
There is a horizontal segment in this design. While I can't find a definitive answer as far as what material the burrs are made of, most manufacturers opt for high-carbon steel.
This claims that the GX6000 has concical burrs. Everywhere else I find on the interwebs claims that the burrs for the GX6000 are flat. Can anybody confirm what type of burr mill this grinder employs?
