To a coffee lover, there is nothing better than the smell of freshly ground coffee beans. The Breville BCG450XL Conical Burr Grinder produces a consistent grind for all coarsenesses.
The Breville BCG450XL Conical Burr Grinder is a conical burr grinder capable of producing all grind levels from extra fine to coarse and has several adjustable settings. At a mere 5.4 pounds, this 4.5” x 11.2” x 7” grinder is a heavy weight when it comes to producing results. It also features a variable timer that can be set for 10 to 30 seconds of grinding time, with a removable bean hopping which holds half a pound of beans.
The Breville BCG450XL Conical Burr Grinder has a polymer base and stainless steel casing with an on/off switch and start/stop pulsing control and anti-static technology.
This is the first grinder I have every used that has run whisper quiet, by comparison, plus does a superb job grinding the beans no matter what coarseness we set on the controls. The off/on switch is reliable and quick and the unit itself is rock solid. After grinding, the grounds slide easily out of the machine and into the coffee maker filter leaving little residue behind.
The machine is easy to clean and the grinds wipe away with little or no trouble making this machines a joy to use.
The only thing we took issue with on this wonderful little machine was the small hopper size, which seems to hold less than the capacity promised in the advertising.
The Final Verdict:
The Breville BCG450XL Conical Burr Grinder is a great little machine that produces fine results and is well worth the money invested to buy it. It operates quietly and has various setting levels to accommodate all coffee machines.
