  1. I bought the Ambiano burr coffee grinder at Aldi a couple weeks ago for $13+ – I’ve been using it daily since and am happy enough with it. It’s certainly not a replacement for a $200 grinder, but I’d been using ground coffee, and this is so much better. It’s not that easy to clean, but not that hard, either. Unfortunately, to clean the burrs you’d have to disassemble the unit, something most people won’t tackle. Some reviews mention it being noisy – mine is no louder than my brother’s very expensive unit. All coffee grinders I’ve heard are unpleasantly loud.

    Bottom line – great buy at this price.

  2. I have bought Lumina (Aldi) Meat Grinder, works every time, blades still sharp, easy to clean. terrific value for the price. I would buy again if this one ever failed.
