Cuisinart Coffee Grinder Review


I was so excited to get my very first ever coffee grinder from Cuisinart by way of Cooking.com! I had some GC's to spend on Cooking.com and decided to use one of them to finally get a nice coffee grinder so that Mike and I could finally buy the whole beans and make our own grinds as we go along. The coffee is much fresher that way and it really does make a difference in the taste of the coffee.

Thank you Cooking.com for being so generous to me! I decided to get black to keep it from looking so old really quick. I used to like white until it got dirty and nobody wanted to clean it so then it gets that icky in between color so I played it smart this time and got black!

 I did not know this but they have the Food Network Store, Rachael Ray Store, Paula Deen Store, Calphalon Store, Betty Crocker Store, Pillsbury Store, Marley Coffee, and Good Bite Store! Did you know that?
This is what my coffee grinder looks like from the inside. Don't you just hate to mess up something that is brand new and so pretty? But I knew Mike was waiting to grind up some coffee beans so I finally handed it over. I told him he had best be careful and don't break it on the first attempt!

I was reading some of the hints and things on my coffee grinder and I never thought of this but they say to get a 2nd grinder to use for chopping and grinding your spics. If you don't your coffee will taste like whatever spices or herbs you put in there!

So read the directions so that you know what is acceptable and what is not. There is an 18 month limited warranty and you want to keep your grinder working and doing the best job, follow their recommendations so that you can say my coffee grinder last xx amount of time! I found a page that gives you the shipping deadlines if you want to send someone something from their huge supply of products!

Wow, there were so many choices on Cooking.com with all those stores to choose from it took me days to look thru everything. I wanted to make sure I got something I would really enjoy but also need at the same time. was going to list some of the awards that Cooking.com has gotten but when I went and seen how many there were, I figured I would leave the link here and you can go look when you want to. It is a pretty impressive list of awards!

Since it is getting that time of year you might want to check out this page and see what they consider the essentials of Thanksgiving! I can tell you one thing the turkey sitting in one of those pans sure did make me hungry!! So with that thought in mind I wandered over to the recipe section of their site and boy are there some great recipes that I will have to check out for either Thanksgiving or Christmas. I was gonna try to copy over a wonderful sounding Ginger Crinkle Cookie recipe but it looks a little long so just go look it up and see what you think.

Lastly, don't forget that this would make the perfect place to find a wedding present for one of your friends or family! They have a wedding registry so you can pick up something that was already tagged so there is no way you can mess up and get them something they don't like or want.

Here is a little bit of what I was able to find out about Cooking.com:

The Company is committed to providing its customers with an exceptional experience and it is the recipient of numerous awards for customer satisfaction.

This coffee grinder from Cuisinart looks great to use. My husband accidentally bought coffee beans and we did not have a grinder, so we had to use our Cuisinart Chopper and it worked! But we really should get a coffee grinder because the coffee is better from the whole beans.
