When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including the following:

  2. To protect against risk of electrical shock do not immerse cord, plug or grinder in water or other liquid.
  3. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
  4. Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts, before removing coffee and before cleaning.
  5. Avoid contacting moving parts.
  6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return appliance to the nearest authorized Cuisinart service facility for examination, repair or mechanical or electrical adjustment.
  7. The use of attachments not recommended or sold by Cuisinart may cause fire, electrical shock, or risk of injury.
  8. Do not use outdoors.
  9. Do not let cord hand over edge of table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
  10. Check hopper for presence of foreign objects before using.
  11. Use this appliance to grind roasted coffee beans only. Grinding other substances, such as nuts, spices or unroasted beans may dull the blade and cause poor grinding or injury.
  12. CAUTION: Do not immerse in water



This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify the plug in any way.


  1. Plug cord into outlet.
  2. Remove lid from base of grinder. If desired, measure beans in lid using measurement markings, before filling stainless steel bowl.
  3. Fill stainless steel bowl with bean quantity desired. Do not fill beans above the top of the stainless steel bowl.
  4. Place the lid onto grinder base.
  5. Press and hold on/off button to begin grinding.
    Please note: A safety feature of this grinder requires that the grinder will not operate unless the lid is in place.
  6. Grind until beans are ground to desired consistency.
    To stop grinding, release pressure from on/off button.
  7. Remove plug from outlet.
  8. Pour ground coffee into grinder lid.
  9. Measure coffee with scoop (not included), tablespoon or lid measurement markings into coffeemaker filter basket. See measurement suggestions on reverse.

Some general guidelines for grinding are listed below. However, times will vary depending upon the amount of coffee used and your personal preference. The best way to determine how coarse or fine to grind your coffee is to experiment with different grinds and coffee types to suit your taste.

GrindSuggested UseGrind Time
CoarsePercolator/French Press10 Seconds
MediumAutomatic Drip20 Seconds
FineEspresso30 Seconds


For the richest coffee flavor, we suggest using one and one-half (1-1/2) rounded tablespoons of ground coffee for every 5 ounces of water. If you have a Cuisinart® Coffee BarTM Coffeemaker, the cups are measured in 5-ounce increments.
The measurement markings on the lid indicate reference measurements.

For example, for automatic drip coffee, if you fill the lid to the •••• marking with whole beans, you will have enough ground coffee to reach the •• marking. This equals enough ground coffee for two 5-oz. cups, using the Cuisinart recipe.
Note: These markings are approximate. Experiment with different quantities to determine what works best.
