Normally $99 at most stores. Supposed to be have the same internals as the Wilfa Svart grinder but as an international model. James Hoffman says Wilfa is better than The Baratza Encore

At $36, it's a good price for a decent burr grinder. much better than the Cuisinart

If you see that reddit thread about the bad burr. I'm sure that person got a bad batch.
The burrs I have are smoother.

For $36 if what you say is true this has to be worth taking a chance on.

Manual says not to use this as a spice grinder. You're better off using the hand mill grinder

Sounds like a bunch of paid promos to kick off the thread lol

One person commented that there's other places selling same price.

Anyone know if this is a good product?

I mean if the OP is commenting on this burr grinder based on a major YTer who is well respected, on a website where i can return the item no questions asked -- maybe that's what I meant by trusting his suggestion about taking a chance on a $36 grinder? It's easy to find out and return it for this kind of money at stake

I have a breville braista express which i set to coarse all the time for coffee. If this doesn't give me $36 worth of grinding to use on my v60, then i'll return it.

Check my 9 years of posting and tell me where you see the paid promos Smilie


EDIT: used it for pour over today. It's fine. I don't have a Barazza encore to compare, but seems pretty decent and works for my needs of getting a separate, relatively small and inexpensive conical burr grinder to handle pour over/non espresso

It does look extremely similar to the Wilfa Svart, which is apparently a copy of the Breville BCG450XL and original price was $100 at launch 3 years ago

https://dailycoffeenews.com/2018/...ffee-gear/

IMO $36 is an incredible price for something that's probably from the same production line -- though no way to easily know if it's the identical burr set.
