Easehold Brand Information
The Easehold brand is one that is not that familiar in the UK. They are a relatively young company having been formed in 2013. They offer manual and electric coffee grinders, juicer, food processors and various kinds of kitchen aid gadgets. They like their goods to be practical and trendy.

The Easehold Compared to Similar Blade Style Grinders
There are around 120 different models of blade grinders available on the UK market, from a whole range of brands. Most grinders of this blade type are priced anything between £15-25. This Easehold one is at the lower end of that price point range.
The most popular blade grinder is the Andrew James electric coffee grinder which also has a slightly higher satisfaction rating of 86%, and costs in and around the same price. We have reviewed that one here.
These two grinders are pretty similar and have both their good and bad points. We think this one has a better appearance, but there is very little difference between these two blade grinders.

Consider an Upgrade - Blade to Burr
This grinder is a blade grinder. All blade grinders will grind coffee beans to a certain degree. Burr grinders are always a better but more expensive option.
These blade grinders also work well for herbs, nuts and spices so they are useful and they are usually relatively cheap. (£15-30)
There are two problems with ALL blade grinders:
- They heat up if used for too long, and that can burn the coffee grains and beans and leave them bitter
- The grounds are usually inconsistent with larger parts of the bean left unchopped and that makes for bad coffee
Burr grinders squeeze the bean and get all the flavour out and give a much better and consistent grind. The downside is that they are more expensive with an average cost of around £45 for a good one.
If you are a coffee lover, then you should always own a burr grinder. We have done a top 10 list here, which you can check out.
Our Verdict on the EASEHOLD 200W Electric Whole Coffee Grinder
- With a buyer satisfaction rating of 82%, the majority of buyers are satisfied with their purchase
- We found around 200 online buyer reviews so that shows it is selling really well
- It does function pretty well and is compatible with other blade style coffee grinders
What makes this one different is the actual style and appearance. We know that it does a good basic job of grinding beans, herbs, nuts and spices so it is a practical grinder.
The appearance though is really suitable for a contemporary modern style kitchen. It comes in two colours a black or a silver, which again gives you the potential buyer some options.
As blade grinders go, this Easehold 200 watt grinder gets good buyer reviews, and is certainly at an affordable price.
