It’s no secret that the grind of your coffee has a lot to do with how good your brewed cup turns out to be. Unfortunately, many people tend to skip on buying a grinder due to the fact that they’re usually quite expensive. However, that’s not the case when it comes to the two budget grinders we’ll be comparing today. The Cuisinart DBM-8 and KRUPS GX5000 are both under $50, which makes them a perfect buy for anyone on a budget. But which one of them should you choose? That’s what we will be answering in this post.

Review of the Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme:
Are The Cuisinart DBM-8 and KRUPS GX5000 Conical Burr Grinders?
No, they are not. And that’s why they’re available at such an affordable price. These grinders use flat burrs.
What’s The Difference Between a Flat Burr and Conical Burr?
A flat burr is different shape than a conical burr. Flat burrs sit on top of each other in a flat manner (hence, the name), while conical burrs are cone shaped and are nested in each other with a grind mechanism that is kind of vertical. While these burrs work differently, both can provide consistent results.
