Breville Bcg820Bssxl The Smart Grinder Pro Coffee Bean Grinder, Brushed Stainless Steel

Buy On Amazon

Well known for their reliability in the small kitchen appliance area, the Breville Smart Grinder (BCG800XL) already looks promising. 

Stylish and neat and designed to draw the eye in, this is a steel grinder with a conical burr set, giving it the edge on some of its competitors in this field.

Boasting “dosing IQ”, this grinder will choose the ideal dose to fit the type of grind selected. And there are plenty of options, 25 to be precise.

You can make drip coffee, espresso or French Press and anything in between to your heart’s content with this little contraption.

But before we go any further, he’s a quick video introducing this grinder by Breville themselves.

MAIN FEATURES

breville smart grinder review

With stainless steel conical burrs of 58mm diameter and ‘dosing IQ’ technology, this grinder will adjust the amount of time per the type of grind selected, everything can and will be done for you automatically unless you expressly wish to be in the driving seat. 

So sit back and let it do all the heavy lifting for you!

THE HOPPER

Having a party?  Wanna be barista trying to impress your friends?  Not a problem, the bean hopper can take up to a pound in weight and make enough coffee for all.

But if it’s just a single cup or mug you’re after, then that’s not an issue either.

The sealed silicone gasket ensures the freshness of the grinds and has a lock, letting you remove them from the unit without first having to empty out the beans.

With one of the two cradles included (larger and smaller) you can get the machine to do all the dosing for your espressos and also the same applies for a filter coffee maker.
