Great price for an electric grinder
May not be a Burr Grinder, but as the comments below, unless you're having espressos, it doesn't need to be.

thank you fearona for your interest in my post!

Trane that is a very good point. I don't drink espressos, but I use a cafetiere, or french press and I make cold brews. This is perfect for my needs, hence my post.

Everyone has their needs and I needs this.

You need a burr grinder for coffee beans, theres no comparison these are more of a spice grinder.

You don't 'need' a burr grinder for coffee. I do admit they are better though.

If you dont want to chop the beans up and have an uneven grind tthen you want a burr grinder.
Theres a big difference in the grind quality between the 2 methods, especially if you are after an esprsso fine grind.

Could you use this for 'medicinal' purposes too?

Conversely, if people generally use a cafetiere, then a coarser grind is fine.

Well I've certainly learned something! I keep hearing that you should only use burr grinders, but I only drink cafetiere coffee... I didn't realise I didn't need a burr grinder!
I'm going to make the switch from pre ground bags on your advice now, as this is cheap and convenient. Super useful!

As they say 'you learn something new every day'. I switched from pre ground bags to beans about a year ago. When I tried a bag of ground coffee, I didn't like the taste at all. I'm the wrong person to ask to describe something, but I guess it's like the Marmite affect, you either love it or hate it. I only drink freshly ground now... I am such a SNOB

Is the Ikea one a Burr Grinder? If so that's a good price for one

No. It's a blade - same as as the one above. Fine for use with a cafetiere or filter but an espresso machine really does need a burr grinder for consistant results.

Whether course or fine, you will burn the beans with a blade. If that doesn't matter to you then go ahead.

I would, however, thoroughly recommend the Delonghi if you want to grind your coffee the proper way - hotukdeals.com/dea…146

Not sure it would meet the exacting standards of some, as it looks to have a plastic drawer to collect the grinds. Apparently that reacts with the coffee ( probably OK if your making the coffee straigh away ). So you are better with a glass container. I've never done a taste test to verify.

There are so many dos and donts sometimes you think they're pulling your leg. I've tried different methods and they do taste different. I won't say which I prefer, because everyone has their own tastes.

I still can't accept any exacting standards though!

Sadly not just a 5p alternative to this one which tends to always be available

However, if you need one now (or this Sunday 5th), and you don't want to join the hoards of people going through the maze that is IKEA, then this 5p is worth your while

On the other hand, if you're going IKEA anyway, if you don't have a Lidl nearby, hate Lidl or you must save that 5p (not sure what your fuel consumption or time costs), then go for it

all swings and roundabouts, that 5p may just give us a merry xmas

If you don't want to buy a burr grinder then it may be better to try a pestle & mortar, or maybe stick the beans in a bag and hit them with a hammer.

LOL you are a funny one. I don't own a pestle and mortar and I know they only cost a few quid, but I'd rather buy this for a few quid extra and have less mess and use less effort for a better grind. I'm not even going to bother mention the hammer and a bag.

I got both. I got the pestle and mortar first. I used it a whole 3 times!
This is great, assuming its still the exact same , grinds are fine and an currently doing a 15 second grind. Maybe that will increase to 20 seconds for a finer grind.
I still currently buy more ground coffee than beans, there being more quality choice at a price point.

Sounds like you would be happy with a jar of instant.

By other peoples descriptions it mite be that ready ground coffee is better than using a cheap grinder!!

This thread was funny.

Anyone bought one and turned into a pumpkin yet?

I found an all in one burr grinder and dripper set for £10 in a local shop. Makes for 1 only though, so you're having to grind a few times and pour over a few times if you're making for a few people
