Krups Automatic Milk Frother – Good at its job, but can be temperamental

Electric Burr Grinders

It’s so much better than hand grinding. My first one went the way of all flesh after about 5 years, so i was more than happy to buy the latest model. It’s so much better than hand grinding.

Good at its job, but can be temperamental. Bought this machine a couple of years ago and it has been in very regular use since. It does the grinding job well, and i find the fact that you can choose the degree of grind helpful in ensuring that you get just the right grind every time without having to judge how long to let it run. I use the beans in a gaggia machine to make espresso and cappucino. But it can be temperamental as both the lid and the plasic box that collects the ground coffee have to be absolutely fully engaged before it will work. I couldn’t make it work last night, tried changing the fuse etc etc and gave up and started to look online for a new machine. This morning, i had an inspiration and turned it upside down and found that over the months of use, some ground coffee had spilled over the edge of the bean hopper and down the side which was preventing a perfect contact when the lid was put on. Cleaned it out, and hey presto, we’re back in business.

  • Great grinder, except for very coarse grinds
  • Not perfect for espresso
  • Great coffee grinder

Great grinder, except for very coarse grinds. This is a great grinder for fine and medium grind coffee. If you need a very coarse grind, for example for a cona, then it may not be quite coarse enough at its maximum setting. As a burr grinder, it gives an even, dust-free grind which is highly consistent. It’s relatively quick in operation, and doesn’t shake around too much. Which was a problem with our previous burr grinder. The controls are really easy. Within two minutes of getting it out of the box we had ground our first coffee. Grind is on the side, number of cups is on the front, you press the button and off it goes, provided that you have the top on. For safety reasons, if the top isn’t properly on, it does nothing.

A good all round inexpensive burr grinder. Bought to replace existing one which seemed to give up the ghost after about 6 years of fairly active use. Strangely started working again the day i received the new purchase. However the new one is noticeably sharper than the old so was probably due for replacement. You can buy the top grinder if you wish. The on/off switch is of bad design and failed on my old one and disappeared into the machine after about 12 months. This problem appears a lot on other reviews but i found that i could get by using the brush handle to turn on/off. I will treat the new one with a little more tlc.

  • Three setting for cafe-quality coffee
  • Effortless to clean and to use
  • Twin stainless steel blades for even grinding

Must stress the excellent service by krups who collected and delivered the said. Hadid not grind properly to suit espresso,was replaced by krups with same model ,which works perfectly. Obviously the first model was faulty which can happen. Must stress the excellent service by krups who collected and delivered the said items.

Good product, shame about the box. This was bought as a gift, and the recipient uses it regularly and loves the coffee it produces. The only downside was that it was not delivered in any extra packaging therefore the krups box came to me very tatty and also covered in delivery stickers with my name and address. This did mean that it was very difficult to give as a gift as i had to keep it in this box. Besten Krups Automatic Milk Frother + Krups Expert GVX231 Burr Coffee Grinder Bewertungen

I would like to give this 5 stars as it works well and does the job it is meant to up to a point. It is easy to use as you just need put the beans in the top, select the number of cups (the amount of ground coffee you need) using the dial on the front and then the ground size with the dial on the left side, press the button and wait for it to finish. For filter and aeropress the grinder does a good job. Comparing the results with a blade ‘grinder’ the krups definitely tastes noticeably better. For espresso though it doesn’t quite go fine enough. For medium sized grinds it seems to be consistent in the coffee it produces but for espresso there were still larger pieces remaining from the beans.

I use an aeropress, and this grinds nice and fine for that (i don’t even have it in the finest setting). Have had it for over a year, in use every day, and it’s still doing great.

Excellent grinder, very wide range of settings for coarseness, perfect for espresso. I originally bought a de’longhi kg79 for espresso, but found that the grind was not fine enough. With this i have it set to about number 3 on the grind settings and it comes out great. I’ve been using it frequently and have had no problems. It’s not even that loud for a burr grinder, although you probably still want to close your kitchen door if you’re using it while others are sleeping. Others have complained about grounds getting into the button and causing problems, and it does appear that the button is oriented in a way that might cause this. I pre-empted the problem by sticking a single piece of clear sellotape over the top side of the button. It’s probably something krups should fix in a future redesign (e. Put a clear silicone bubble over the button) but it’s not a dealbreaker.

This is a brilliant product so i am updating all my accounts with this review. I am not a coffee drinker, i was in search of a flour maker that would turn any grain or seeds into four for baking and the like. I am glad to say that i found it in this grinder. It is like magic, you pour your gains in and out comes the flour. I use it at the finest setting and have made flour from oats, spelt and rice. I tried buying this at john lewis in brent cross but the ladies there were clueless about this machine and put me off. So i went next door to lakeland and the gentleman i saw was very reassuring. Thanks to him i have this marvel.

Excellent and still going strong after 4 1/2 years. Just to counter the reliability comments on this little beauty: i bought one in 2012 and it has been grinding my morning coffee every day flawlessly since. If anyone wants a tip – coffee plant organic espresso beans are sublime (and very well priced) thus this is a damn good product with excellent reliability.

So great for espresso machine –> bodum press or aeropress as. Grinds to very controllable size, so great for espresso machine –>bodum press or aeropress as you can adjust to suit. Worth spending the extra above the basic blade grinder for sure. Not 5-stars as i’ve had one previously that lasted 2. 5 year before breaking, which is beyond guarantee but i’d love to see manufactures aim for something a bit more ambitious.
