Mr. Coffee Coffee Mill IDS55
This coffee grinder is small, so it doesn't take up alot of counter space. It also fits in my appliance cabinet very easily when not in use. This grinder is diot proof. You simply use the coffee measurement chart found in the operating manual.
Pour whatever amount of beans you want to grind for whatever amount of coffee you wish to brew directly in the grinding cup. You then place on the lid and press down. You can pour your ground beans directly from the lid.
I also like that the lid is clear and you can see that all the beans are being ground. This grinder is also easy to clean. I wash the lid with soap and water as it is not dishwasher safe.
That's ok with me. Then I just wipe out the blade area of the grinder with a paper towel. It did take me a few times to get the beans ground the way I like. I really don't like that the grinding unit get's kinda hot after each use. But by the time I clean the lid, wipe out the blade area, and the make coffee, I can then put the grinder away. We go to the lake alot.
So not being able to grind enough beans for 4 pots of coffee at a time is a negative. I genuinely like and use Mr. Coffee products. They seem to have all the features I look for in a coffee related appliance, and they are easy to use. Pros
- The grinder takes only seconds to grind the beans.
- Grinds enough beans for a pot of coffee - 12 cups. Cons
- Cannot grind beans for more than 4 pots of coffee at one time.
- The grinder has to cool after each use.
