  • Dose Control not built to last
    Reviewed by Sam - March 22, 2017

    I bought one of these about one and a half years ago. I loved the grinder until now. It is quiet and grinds quickly, also the grind is more than fine enough for a non-dual walled filter. However it started to jam on me recently. I found out it is a worn impeller which is used to move the coffee out of the lower burr down to your portafilter. The impeller is made of plastic and not metal so it is designed to fail. I haven't gotten a proper estimate yet but they said it will cost at least 50 bucks for labour plus the part which is likely in the 30 dollar range. So, this is a big expense if you grind often. This is a good price now, I paid 200.00 back in 2015.

  • Breville burr grinder's plastic gets into my coffee
    Reviewed by Aurion Toledo - May 4, 2018

    This grinder worked good enough for making expresso The Good: 1. It grinds very fine. 2. The coffee goes directly into my portafilter, saving time. The Bad: 1. After 1 year of use, the plastic fan (impeller) wore out so much that it could not push the coffee grinds out of the burr and into the portafilter. 2. Not only that, I also found out that the plastic fan got filed away slowly over the months into my coffee - I ended up DRINKING PLASTIC. Researching on the internet, I discovered that other owners also have this problem. In Quebec the food protection agency requires Breville to exchange this machine for one with a steel fan instead of the plastic fan. Also grinders purchased in Calif can get it exchanged for a model with a steel fan because of the danger of the plastic being carcinogenic.

  • Espresso lovers beware
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - December 19, 2021

    This unit contains a plastic impeller, the part that moves the coffee ground by the burrs, out of the machine. This plastic impeller wears over time (ground by the ground coffee itself) and eventually, the impeller cannot do its job anymore, and the machine jams. You can clean up the jam, but it’ll just clog up again. This piece is not a replaceable part, and even if it was, it wearing down means you get plastic infused in your coffee. Reached out to Breville, but they only offer to repair this defect, not correct it. Just look it up, "dose control impeller jam". If you want to do espresso, and don’t want to have to replace this machine in just a few years, stay away.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Breville grinder & its replacement
    Verified BuyerReviewed by A.L.S. Hfx - December 21, 2020

    i got one of these grinders as a Christmas present in 2018. When it stopped working as it should in Fall 2020, after the warranty had expired, I contacted Breville for trouble-shooting help. When the things they suggested didn't solve the problem, they offered to replace it, even though it was no longer under warranty. This was very good customer service. Received the new one, sent back the old one. So far so good.Takes a bit of experimenting to get the dose time and grind just right, but once you do, this will reliably produce good espresso. Hope the new machine lasts more than a year and a half.

  • New Dose Control Grinder has Steel Impeller
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - December 22, 2020

    I was very pleased to receive the new dose control grinder as my old one had a plastic impeller which had worn out. The new replacement grinder has a steel (or steel clad) impeller which I hope will function much longer. I was very pleased that Breville supported their product out of warranty and have made design changes which should result in a longer lasting product. Thanks!
