Krups 203-42 Fast Touch Coffee Grinder


I bought Krups Coffee Grinder recently and I can say that I love it. The ground coffee I make with this coffee grinder stay fresh and with a rich aroma. An intense and incredible aroma that runs the home.


This coffee grinder has many options available to grind the coffee beans. You can select to grind the beans very fine. Also then beans can be grind more coarse. It has 17 selections. Another features I like about this coffee grinder is that the ground coffee container is easy to remove and that the coffee grinder comes with a brush to clean it. It is very useful and easy to use. I like to much the design of the Krups Coffee Grinder.

I bought it in black and it looks contemporary and modern in my kitchen. It is a good looking coffee grinder and the people who enter to my my kitchen and see it, always ask me about it. The on-off button has a blue light, so when the kitchen is not illuminated I can know is the coffee grinder is turn on. The price is fine for the quality of it. Also I like that this grinder avoid overheating.

It is safe to use. It is a very nice to use coffee grinder and it would be better if it will comes with more features and do more functions. I recommend this coffee grinder for people who is searching for a quality coffee grinder.

Pros
- preserves the rich aroma of the coffee beans
- has many options to grind the coffee beans.

Cons
- little noisy
- it would be better is the coffee grinder will do another functions.

I give Krups Coffee Grinder/Black a rating of 4/5

A Very Noisy Coffee Grinder
by: Anonymous

Pros
- Quick
- Fairly even grind

Cons
- Loud
- Small capacity

I have been using this coffee grinder for about 3 years now. And while it serves it's function as a coffee grinder very well it is VERY NOISY! I tend to plan on grinding my coffee at night, not in the morning. Why? So I don't wake the whole house up!

It's not a pleasant sound, thankfully you aren't required to endure it for very long. 20-30 seconds gives a very fine grind (Almost too fine for good filtered drip coffee.) Another downfall of this coffee grinder is the small compartment for grinding, and the size/shape of the blades in relation to the size of the compartment. To get the best grind possible I have to shake the grinder gently in many directions.

Other wise, you'll have some half-chopped beans and not-so good coffee. Despite my pessimism, this is overall a great coffee grinder, and considering I don't have to suffer through it's incessant grinding noise for more than 20 seconds a day or so, I can live with it.

Great Coffee Grinder
by: Anonymous

Pros
- The grinder grinds coffee exceptionally fine depending upon the length of time you press the grind button.
- The lifespan of the machine is superior to other brands.

Cons
- The machine is exceptionally loud.
- Coffee grinds get caught under the blades.

Although the Krups 203 does grind very well, it would be nice if it had a lever to select the degree of courses. Additionally, I have found it necessary to wrap a dish towel around it in order to silence the motor when using it early in the morning, so as not to wake my entire family.

A Powerful Grinder
by: Anonymous

Pros
- A good feature is its size; the unit fits almost anywhere on the counter or in the cupboard
- The grinder works fast and does not take long to grind the coffee beans
- I have had it for 10 years and it works like a charm every time I use it
- I have also ground up cinnamon stick, other spices and other various items, like medicine pills and works well on these other uses

Cons
- Size ; due to its small size, you cannot grind many coffee beans at a time
- Hard to clean ; you cannot immerse the unit in water or dishwasher and need to clean by hand, however you can clean the top in water
- There is no on/off switch and you must plug and unplug the grinder in order to turn it on and off
- It is very loud, the sound can be annoying when grinding the coffee beans.

Krups Model Number 203 B This electric coffee grinder works fairly well and it is easy to use. The grinder is small enough to fit on the counter without taking up much space or can be placed in a cupboard without taking up much space. The color is off white, has a clear top and goes with most décors.

I would give it a rating of 3.5, due to the plus and minus of its size, loudness while grinding the beans and since it is not that easy to clean.

My Favorite Coffee Grinder
by: Anonymous

Pros
- Huge capacity
- good coarse/fine grind settings
- doesn’t turn-off automatically

Cons
- Its trigger action isn't very effective
- it produces bits of dust

There are a large number of coffee grinders available today. These manual coffee grinders are available in traditional designs with a variety of special features. These models vary from color to capacity.

Everyone who loves coffee will definitely have a coffee grinder in their home. I myself am a coffee lover. I am going to review about my favorite coffee grinder manufactured by Krups. Almost all models released by Krups are excellent, but F203 model is somewhat different.

This coffee grinder is small in size and can be used as spice grinder too. Even if it is small, it’s fast and grinds to our desired fineness. It is an electric grinder which uses sharp stainless steel blades to grind within seconds to uniform and fine beans.

It has a capacity of 3 oz. It uses power around 160 watts with variable settings available. Its height is around 17cms, width around 8cms and depth around 9cms. It’s so small that it weighs just 0.5kg. It’s available both black and white in color.

It has an average capacity of about 15 coffee cups beans. Altogether it is a fantastic coffee grinder. Powerful motor grinds beans from coarse to fine in seconds.

It can also be used to grind all kinds of dry spices like cinnamon, pepper etc. It has a lid activated safety switch. That means the coffee grinder will not work until lid is locked in its place. It’s an excellent safety measure. The black finish model is having an excellent look.
