Just below we will explore both the bad and good ratings to help you decide if this is the right blade grinder for your own specific needs.

What Buyers Say About This Coffee Grinder

We know that generally speaking, online buyers rate their purchase very highly with a very high 85% buyer satisfaction rating. In this section we have checked out what buyers actually have to say about their purchase, after they have bought and used the grinder.

The first thing that we noticed with this particular coffee grinder was that most buyers bought this one to grind nuts and spices rather than actual coffee beans. Many people used it for a range of grinding options though, so we focus here on that general grinding ability.


  • 2/3 of all buyers gave this a 5 star review
  • Doesn't take up much room on the kitchen work top
  • Extremely easy to use
  • Very easy to clean
  • Does a very good job of grinding coffee beans, nuts and spices
  • Buyers said this was a light and compact grinder
  • Most buyers loved this as a handy kitchen gadget


  • 8% of all buyers gave this a bad review
  • A few buyers said it was too slow
  • Can't immerse the base of this in water
  • A few buyers said it does not grind all of the beans all of the time

With any product you will always get mixed reviews. The majority of buyers really liked this grinder. Those that did complain said it was either just too slow, or did not always grind everything inside it.

For coffee grinding we would always recommend a burr grinder, but those are twice the price of this one. In terms of value for money, this one does a good enough job.

Our Verdict on the Chef's Inspiration Coffee Grinder

  • This grinder is from a pretty well known brand, and with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee you can always just try it and see without any financial loss
  • We would always recommend a burr grinder, but as blade grinders go, this one does get very good reviews
  • It is compact and light and doesn't take up a great deal of room

If this is not the blade coffee grinder for you, then why not check out our top 10 list of blade coffee grinders by clicking here.

Overall though buyers do like this product, and for the majority of users this model seems to do the job really well. The grinder looks really well and the non slip base ensures that it will not move around when being used.

Cleaning this grinder will take a little bit of patience. The base of the unit has an electric motor and you can never put that into water, or indeed into a dishwasher. All electric coffee grinders are exactly the same.

Most people used a pastry brush to clean this out and then wiped the interior and exterior with a cloth.

If you are a real coffee lover, then this will not be a good choice for you. In fact no blade grinder is a good choice for the best tasting coffee. You will always be better off with a burr grinder.

The reason for that is that blade grinders like this one chop the coffee beans to make a grind. Burr grinders squeeze the beans and make a better and fuller flavour.
