I’m contemplating getting this so we have a backup and won’t be without when the old one finally gives up. This one is a bit fancier. Both may indeed be entry level, but probably good enough for a yokel like me.
The cheaper model has impressive ratings (21372 reviewers averaging 4.4 out of 5 stars). The fancy model only has 15 reviews at 4.1 and the digital fanciness may make it more susceptible to failure. But it does have that three-year, so . . .
@joelmw@rtjhnstn The one you have is a DBM-12 and the current one on Meh I believe is a CBM-18 or something very similar to it. The CBM-18 is much better and if you get it, you should probably relegate your old one to being a backup rather than the other way around.
Yes this is a very good deal and it’s quite a decent cheap grinder even at $100.
@boygenius1991@rtjhnstn I’m not sure if I’m missing something, but I don’t see that any of the negative reviews address grind quality and a couple (there aren’t many) seem to be items that would be covered by warranty and might even have been user error.
@boygenius1991 Cheap grinders in general won’t be that good at french press or espresso. This is a good value for a basic brew grinder. For french press you need a big precise grinder that makes very few fines.
