Black & Decker CBG 100S Smartgrind Coffee Grinder

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

Being a stay at home mom, who also has a full-time job that I do from home, I drink a lot of coffee! And, I'm pretty particular about the coffee I drink. Because of that, I like to grind my own coffee beans to make sure that every cup is a fresh one. The Black & Decker CBG100S Smartgrind Coffee Grinder is a good coffee grinder that does the job and in the two years that I've owned it, I've never run into a problem. However after seeing other models, I do wish that I had held out for a coffee grinder that gave me a few more options.

The grinder is small enough to sit out on my countertop without taking up a lot of space. And because it's black and stainless steel, it looks great and blends in well with my other modern appliances. The bowl of the grinder is just large enough to grind enough coffee beans for one pot of coffee, so it eliminates the step of measuring for me. However, sometimes I do like to pre-grind a lot of beans to take away some of the work in the morning. At those times, I do often wish that I had a bigger bowl on my grinder.

The lid snaps on as a safety precaution and will stop the mechanism from powering on until it has locked in place. The lid also acts as the button that will stop and start the coffee grinder, which is very handy. Once you press that button the coffee beans will grind in just a few seconds. I do also find the actual grinding to be pretty loud. While this doesn't bother me, it can be aggravating to the other people in my house who are trying to study or watch TV.

There are a few things that I do wish this coffee grinder came with. A compartment for cord storage would be nice for when I want to put it up in the cupboard and a hands-free function, which I've seen on many other models since purchasing this one, would also be nice. I did also find that the price of $24.99 was a little high. While it was still worthwhile enough to me at the time to pay it, now that I've seen other models with more features, I wish that I had done some further looking.
