For coffee lovers who want a practical appliance, the KRUPS GX4100 is a great coffee grinder option. Not only does this particular coffee grinder produces finely textured coffee from coarse coffee beans in no time but it also minces herbs and spices with no problem. The double role can also result to a different blend of coffee.


Interior Features
  • The KRUPS GX4100 is not only a coffee grinder but it is also a spice and herb grinder. Given the additional feature, this coffee grinder can help the owner save some money by using one appliance to perform the functions of two. The ability to mince spices may also be used by coffee flavor experimenters.
  • The sharp, powerful stainless steel blades are able to chop herbs and spices easily. The coffee grinder can then be used as a means to prepare ingredients for cooking.
  • Because the blades are strong, the storage large enough, and the operation is fast, the coffee grinder can ground up to 3 ounces of coffee beans at a time. This can save a lot of time when preparing coffee for a large group of people.
  • The coffee grinder is also equipped with a pulse action button, which controls the grinding speed and force used on the beans. This controls the fineness or coarseness of the resulting coffee.

    Exterior Features

  • The KRUPS GX4100 has an attractive stainless steel housing with black trimmings. The color combination should help the appliance fit into most kitchens. The coffee grinder is attractive without taking over the kitchen’s look.
