Our Smartest Grinder. It Adjusts the Dose When You Change the Grind The perfect coffee needs a precise amount of freshly ground beans. But adjustments in grind size requires different grind times to achieve a consistent dose. Breville's conical burr Smart Grinder uses Dosing IQ technology to automatically adjust the dose whenever you change the grind. Choose between 'Cups' for French Press or Filter, and 'Shots' for Espresso, to get the right dose for your needs, whatever the grind setting. You can even tweak for taste. The smart grinder has an LCD display, 25 grind settings, 450g removable hopper, and comes with two grinding cradles for dosing directly into 50-54mm or 58mm commercial espresso filters plus an air-tight storage canister, suitable for plunger or filter coffee. You choose the grind, it'll choose the dose

The grind is very consistent across all sizes. Once you work out the grind and amount of coffee you like, you can just leave it on those settings. This helps in the morning, when you need a coffee to remember how to make a coffee.
I've spotted this unit in many cafes. It's better than a burr hand grinder, and miles better than blade grinder. I have a porlex hand grinder that has now move to 'camping' status.
Putting all your coffee in the hopper will make it go stale and because it is clear it will happen even faster. It's a terrible design unless you're working in a coffee shop in which case you would have much better grinders available for you.
I hate that this is time controlled I don't care about the time it takes to grind coffee, I want to know the weight of the coffee I am grinding. We are grinding 7g, 9g, 14g, 18g, 22g not a unit of time.
There is a significant amount of coffee left in the grinder which is stale. Your first shot of the day will always be under-extracted and sour compared to your second shot. I don't have money to burn on wasting coffee like that.
I would highly recommend either getting a hand grinder or getting a flat burr grinder or a high end conical burr grinder like the Niche.
To minimize this problem my husband and I put individual coffee filters under the grinding apparatus. However the result is the dame: too much ground coffee sticks to the sides of the filters we use.
It's too late to return this but after this experience I'd never buy this brand of coffee grinder again.
After purchasing this one and making the coffee with finer ground coffee, the flavour was greatly improved, more bold and less acidic.
I have used this grinder with the storage container that comes with and also where you catch the ground coffee with the sive tray of the espresso machine.
I prefer the storage container because whilst the grinder is very easy to clean (the parts that need cleaning slide out), there is always some spillage when using the sive tray catcher.
Regardless of having to clean (which I know is part of making a good coffee), the unit is of great build quality and offers plenty of settings, so that everyone should be able to make a good coffee with it.
There are two downsides, both relating to storage: the total height prevents it from fitting in a cupboard, and unless the bean hopper is completely empty, it can't be removed without spilling beans into the mechanism.
However, if you plan to leave the grinder on the benchtop, neither of these issues will arise.
lightweight and looks great in my kitchen
Appreciate option of grinding into the sealable cannister or coffee filter using the cradle
Does not appear to make a huge mess when grinding
Worth the extra cost - avoid buying a cheaper option if you can, especially if you have an espresso machine
