Nothing beats a freshly-ground cup of coffee, and Cuisinart’s Grind Central Coffee Grinder delivers your grind of choice in a retro, brushed stainless build with push-button operation. It even comes with a fitted plastic lid to store unused grounds straight from the bowl.

The grinder separates at the middle, with a safety interlocking lid system to avoid any issues when in use.

This compact machine will grind up to 90 grams of beans, which comes out to approximately 18 cups of coffee, ideal for a week’s supply of coffee. The inside of the bowl includes handy marker lines for 4, 10 and 12 cups. Just fill the bowl to the top for the 18-cup max amount.

Based on a maximum load of beans, the grinder will take 20 seconds for a coarse grind (percolator/French press), 30 seconds for a medium grind (automatic drip machines), and 40 seconds for a fine grind (espresso makers).

Seeking the perfect hot or cold milk frother for all your coffee drinks? Then look no further than Cuisinart’s milk frother, an easy-to-use system that creates up to 250 ml of both hot and cold milk foam as well as milk for chai, sleepy time beverages, hot chocolate, even instant breakfast oatmeal!

The handle is super sturdy and the machine cleans up just as you would a large mug (due to its non-stick interior). Simply wash under warm water with a sponge and invert it onto a drying rack until the next use.

With a one-second button push, the milk gets to work heating and creating that perfect peaked frothed milk for espressos, lattes, cappuccinos and Irish coffee. I was amazed to lift the clear lid to find a perfect portion of foam and warm milk for my afternoon decaf fix. This is an ideal companion for any machine without a steam wand.
