Hamilton Beach Custom Grind
This Hamilton Beach coffee grinder is just the perfect size for grinding one fresh cup of coffee at a time. It can grind up to twelve cups of coffee at a time and grinds in settings for Percolator, Drip and Espresso.
The removal of the inside grider allows for convenient transportation of the device and the ground product, also provides a safety feature that the inside grinder must be securely locked in place before the machine will operate. Because this machine works on several different speeds, it makes it perfect for grinding almost anything needed-from spices to coffee.
I use it all the time to grind fresh peppercorns and the blades never seem to dull. Has an automatic timer setting so that coffee grinds for the appropriate amount of time, will stop on it's own for each setting or it can be stopped manually by pressing the "on/off" button.
The device comes with a brush to dust out the interior of the grinding mechanism but the machine still needs to be taken apart periodically and cleaned. Although the versatility and convenience of this machine far outweighs the con's, the inside of the machine routinely collects coffee grinds and dust therefore requiring it to be cleaned on a regular basis which can be somewhat of an inconvenience if you are in a hurry.Pros
