What Online Buyers Say about this Coffee Grinder?

Overall, as we can see, the satisfaction rating is excellent. Just below we have now summarised what those same buyers had to actually say about the grinder, after they had bought and used it.

We have done that by setting it out in a table of Pros and Cons.


  • The vast majority of buyers were pleased with the quality of the grind they got 
  • Almost every buyer said this model was very good value for money
  • Again, almost every buyer said that this was quieter than many other blade grinders they had used before
  • Buyers said it was very easy to clean and also very easy to use


  • A few buyers said that the lid can get loose during pulsing
  • A few buyers received a product that has a European 2 pin plug (Most came with a UK plug)

It does become really clear when reading through the reviews, that as a general purpose blade grinder, this one is works really well. At 4% the complaints are very low, and the type of complaint is mainly about those customers getting a European plug instead of a UK one.

The Bosch brand is well known and buyers do seem to like this German brand.

Key Features

Grinding Capability

This grinder uses sloped sides to help funnel the beans down and into the stainless steel blades. This grinder can grind at a rate of 150 grams per minute, which is slightly faster than other brands.


These blade grinders are not designed to grind too many beans at any one time. They will heat up if over used and that can damage the motor. Over heating can also taste the coffee beans and not in a good way.

This TSM6A013B model can hold up to 75 grams of ground coffee which is ideal for making a few cups or mugs of coffee.

Safety Feature

Most blade grinders can not be switched on until the lid is attached and closed. This helps avoid accidents from the spinning blade. This is a standard feature on any good blade grinder and this model does have that.

Easy to Use

There is really no difficulty in using one of these. You put your beans in, attach the lid and then pulse the beans until you achieve the desired type of grain from coarse to fine.

There are no complicated settings on this type of grinder. The lid is transparent so you need to look in to see when the grain is ready for use.

Other Features

This grinder measures 9 x 9 x 17 cm and weighs 623 grams. The blade is made from stainless steel.

You can hide the wire away when storing as it wraps around inside the base.

Alternatives to the Bosch Blade Grinder

Just below we have compared this model to the other main competitors for this type of blade grinder.

You can see from this, that the Bosch model has a similar buyer rating to other models from different brands. At just under £30, it is also slightly more expensive than some of its competitors.

Our Verdict on the Bosch Coffee Grinder

We normally advise to go with a recognised brand because you can rely on the warranty, guarantee and after services. Bosch certainly ticks that box.

Blade grinders chop the beans into small pieces and this model does that pretty well. You do have to get used to pulsing the grinder, and very quickly you will figure out the best grind for the type of coffee that you like to drink.

Overall the reviews are very good and there are plenty of them which shows that this grinder does sell consistently online. There are little to no complaints about this grinder, other than a few buyers being sent a European style plug by mistake. This model rates very well when compared to others and buyers are clearly well impressed.
