Cuisinart went completely stainless with their Grind Central Coffee Grinder. This little dynamo is constructed of Stainless Steel right down to its blades. The Cuisinart Grind Central has a heavy-duty motor that is activated by a push button control. Simply press it to grind. There is a built-in safety interlock to prevent grinding unless the lid is securely in place. The bean hopper of the Grind Central is a removable stainless steel bowl. Just give it a slight twist and your bean hopper/ ground coffee container lifts right off. Empty the ground coffee into your coffee filter, and take it right to the dishwasher for easy clean up! Available in Brushed Stainless Steel.

Lee asked:

I use a french press only for my coffee. I always select coarse grind. Will this Cuisinart Blade Grinder satisfy my need for a french press?

Answer by bigskinz:

Yes it will. Its a good lil' grinder

Answer by gophishin:

Lee, you will be much better served by purchasing a burr grinder, and with burr grinders you typically get what you pay for, so do your homework. A blade grinder will not grind consistently enough so you will get dust and boulders (large and small particles) which extract at different rates - the small dust extracting faster and/or over extracting creating bitter coffee. I went with a cheap blade grinder for awhile on my FP and once I got a good burr grinder I notice a big difference in body, overall balance, and flavor profile.

calvin asked:

I am looking for a BLADE coffee grinder with a dial for coarse to fine grind and another for the number of cups to be ground. Is this it?

Answer by Whole Latte Love:

Blade grinders do not have grind settings - to grind finer, you will simply grind for a longer amount of time. Burr grinders do have grind settings from coarse to fine, which allow you to get the perfect grind no matter what brewing method you’re using and create a more even and consistent grind than blade grinders can provide. I’m not sure how fine you’ll need your grinds, but there are a couple of models I can recommend: the Krups Burr Grinder and the Bunn BCG. Both models have the ability for you to change the grind setting and select how much you’d like to grind based on the number of cups. You can learn more about these grinders by following the links below.

Charles asked:

How much coffee can I grind at one time?

Answer by Whole Latte Love:

The Grind Central can hold and grind up to 4 oz of coffee, which is more than enough for a 12-cup pot of drip coffee. Information like this can be found for any of the grinders we carry by following the link below to our Compare-O-Matic.

PEGGY asked:

How does this operate? Do you have to hold it down to grind the beans like most blade grinders?

Answer by Whole Latte Love:

The Grind Central has a single on/off button that you press and hold to grind - when you let go, grinding will stop. In addition, this grinder has a safety mechanism that won’t let you grind unless the lid is on and locked into place.

pushpa asked:

Can this machine be used in India which has 220 volt electrical outlets?

Answer by Whole Latte Love:

Unfortunately, we only carry this and all of our grinders in 110/120v. I would recommend contacting Cuisinart directly at 800-726-0190 for further information on 220v availability.
