This hefty, bullet-shaped grinder stays cool even when the motor runs, so no flavor or aroma is lost, and its jumbo capacity prepares enough beans for a large coffeemaker in one go-round. There is also a see-through plastic lid that lets you see how fine the grind is without opening the grinder.While these are great features, the machine has its drawbacks, too. Though the Capresso claims to have low-noise, it actually seemed a little loud compared to a slightly smaller grinder that didn’t have the “cool grind” feature, and it is also a big appliance for smaller adults to get their hands around. In the final analysis, this is a great grinder for those who regularly make extra-large pots of coffee and who can handle an appliance with a little extra heft. –Maria Dolan
This cool grind blade coffee grinder is perfect for use with drip coffee makers and percolators. The large capacity grinding chamber can grind up to 15 cups of coffee with its stainless steel blade and prevents heat build-up to keep the maximum aroma intact. The grinder also features a pulse grinding action so you can control the fineness of the coffee and as an added safety measure, only takes one second to stop the blades from moving when you’re finished. The clear see-through lid is easily removed so the unit can be brushed clean.
