As you can tell from the sound of the name, BIALETTI is an Italian brand, today among the leaders coffee makers and coffee grinders. Known all over the world for the quality and design of their products, BIALETTI presents its new model of modern and practical coffee grinder.
This brand is often the unanimous choice of customers, their models immediately attract attention thanks to their simple and refined design which immediately gives the object a contemporary look that will fit perfectly into your kitchen decor. This model is in keeping with the BIALETTI spirit of technology, quality and design. We investigated to see if their manual coffee grinder lives up to all these promises.
The manual coffee grinder from BIALETTI
It is a coffee grinder manual in ABS, very resistant and of good quality. Made for domestic useIt is available in red or black. The coffee grinder is 115 centimetres wide, 85 centimetres deep and 215 centimetres long. It is therefore small and compact enough to be easily stored. It has a conical grinding wheel, but what makes it different from other grinders is that it is made of ceramic.
In general, conical grinding wheels offer a much higher than average quality of coffee bean grinding. Its grinding wheels are not only conical, but also made of ceramic, which allows the beans to be ground cleanly and evenly. This technology is very useful for all types of coffee, because it does not stick to the bottom of the containerWe know that a coffee that is compacted is a coffee that will not release all its aromas. This is particularly interesting when working with oily or very fragrant coffees that tend to settle at the bottom of the container. You can therefore use any type of bean on this machine, your powder will always be aerated. This technology is also very durable over time as the ceramic is indestructible.
The BIALETTI mill has a notch system which offers different ways to grind coffee. It has a graduated container for the coffee powder, the graduation is made according to the number of cups. The container is made of plastic, so it is advisable to take a small brush to collect the coffee beans stuck to the sides.
Our opinion on the BIALETTI coffee grinder
The BIALETTI brand never disappoints and here again, it is a success. It has kept its promises by combining design, quality and technology. The materials used are all very resistant:
- ABS for the bodywork ;
- conical ceramic wheel ;
- steel mechanism and handle.
The result is a product that lasts almost forever. The ABS of the outer body is the same as that of the coffee machines, it is highly impact resistant and supports the mechanism inside very well. This steel mechanism The finely crafted material is also very durable, and the handle is also made of steel, which makes the product unbreakable. Finally, what makes this product stand out from the rest in terms of quality is the ceramic grinding wheel that makes all the difference. This is a surprising but effective choice, as the ceramic is very sharp and the grinder grinds the coffee beans without any effort.
We can also note the different notches that allow to create different grinds for all types of coffee. A coarse grind if you want to make a coffee in a piston coffee maker, or finer grinds for espressos or Turkish coffees. However, the grinder is not designed to grind coffee for a RoK type machine, as it requires a micromachine grinder. In addition to being a quality product, the BIALETTI coffee grinder has a fairly attractive price of between 20 and 30 €.
If he could be blamed for anything, it would be the material of the plastic container. With such well-chosen materials for the rest of the mill, we would have liked the brand to opt for glass that is not electrostatic, but with plastic the coffee powder sticks to the walls of the receptacle and you will have to use a brush to recover it.
