Found 3rd Feb
Got one of these at the office and it works well, have used it for 3 years and it hasn't died yet. It's an electric burr grinder which produces a nice consistent grind.

My delonghi is packing up after a couple of years, thought it would last longer to be brutally frank. £50 is a bit out of my price bracket though
It is a good bit of kit and worth it IMO. I was a bit hesitant at first. Think I paid a tad more than this but used one for the past two years and it's easy to adjust the grind level required and easy to clean out.

Something very satisfying about grinding your own beans!

They also do these amazon.co.uk/gp/…rch I have one and it' really good.
I also have the one quoted above, have had it a good few years now and it's still going strong. Use it to grind almonds too for almond flour
I love the monkey winking at the end of Bodum vids, never fails to amuse me

Might be worth the extra cost though. A burr grinder produces far better grounds than a bladed one can.

Not a burr grinder, its a very much inferior type, although ok for grinding spices.

The KG79 is Burr I think, I guess things are made to last these days

Complain, electricals should last a lot longer, 5-7 years is expected, and you paid a lot for a "quality brand".
Complain it's not up to scratch and get it replaced or a deal on a new one. Sale of Goods Act, or whatever they changed the name to...

Tescos, its the person who supplied you that did not supply a good enough item, iirc electricals are expected to last 5-8 years depending... I've have TVs fixed and other stuff replaced at about the 4-5 year mark... after that it starts to get to be a very thick brick wall...

Have a google around, there are a lot of webpages saying how to do it the easiest way, MoneySavingExpert could be a good start. You will probably need either the receipt or a credit card statement with the payment date on it, or some guarantee slip etc to prove the age and that you got it from them. If this model only came out on a certain date that can be enough to prove its not lasted long enough.

Tescos might try and refuse or knock you back saying go to the manufacturer, this isn't strictly legal since its about the supply of goods of sufficient standard/quality. But you may end up having to go to the manufacturer in the end because you hit a brick wall you cant be bothered with.

great thanks for all of that info, I ordered online so I have the confirmation email etc. I've not got much on this weekend so I might try and get something done about it. Cheers

I've had a few of these cheap (sub £100) burr grinders and they just do not last long term if used everyday. They would be fine for occasional use but the motor will eventually lose torque and not have the oomph to start grinding. The most important part of any grinder is the motor and a decent motor on its own is expensive, no short cuts here. A good grinder can run its motor at relatively low speeds so as not to heat the grounds up too much and spoil the coffee and for this it needs very high amounts of torque. Do yourself a favour and invest in a decent grinder. I find that a good indication of whether a grinder (and lots of other items) is good or not is if you can buy lots of spare parts (burrs, motor, bits of casing, hopper etc.) for it easily.

A good grinder will make better coffee and is probably more important than the coffee machine itself. Get a good one and you won't regret it, even consider second hand as good ones are built to last. Don't expect to get anything decent for less than £100 though.
