We drink a lot of coffee in the UK and many people are now brewing their own coffee at home from coffee beans that they have ground themselves. To brew coffee from ground beans there are many methods available including: the Pour Over/Drip Method, the Plunger/Press Method, Percolating, or the Vacuum Method. Whatever way to choose to make your coffee it’s important to have nicely ground coffee beans before you begin brewing.
It is well known that using a Burr Coffee Grinder is much better than using a Blade Coffee Grinder, however for those of us that like coffee but are not fanatical about it, a blade coffee grinder is usually good enough for our needs.
When choosing an electric blade coffee grinder some things to consider are the amount of coffee it can grind (i.e. the size of the bowl), the power of the motor and the ease of cleaning. It’s good to note too that most blade coffee grinders can also be used to grind spices and nuts, but it’s important to clean thoroughly after doing so before returning to grinding coffee beans.
We try to update this page as often as we can with a selection of the best selling and highly rated Electric Blade Coffee Grinders, but you can also click here to see a list of the best selling blade grinders on the Amazon UK website.

Popular Blade Coffee Grinders in Detail
UUOUU 200W Coffee Grinder with Brush
Despite having an unpronounceable brand name, the UUOUU 200W Coffee Grinder is the best selling blade coffee grinder on Amazon as of September 2020. This is hardly surprising as it has an excellent 4.7 stars out of 5 rating and a minimal amount of complaints. This coffee grinder can grind 2 ounces (approx. 57 grams) of coffee beans in just 20 seconds with its quiet but powerful 200 watt motor.
The switch is activated by the lid so it is safe to use and the food-grade 304 stainless steel blades and bowl are washable (but not detachable so be careful). The power cable is stored in the base so it is neat and compact to store. Buyers are very quick to praise the power of this coffee grinder, and they also comment on its superb value for money. This grinder comes with a cleaning brush too, which is a nice touch. It also looks great, and with an RRP of under £25, it’s no wonder that this is a massive best seller!
Duronic Electric Coffee Grinder CG250
Another best selling blade coffee grinder is the Duronic Electric Coffee Grinder CG250 with an RRP of £29.99, which is more than most of the other coffee grinders on this page, however it does include extra features that make it well worth the higher purchase price. Featuring lid operation for safety, this grinder will blast through your beans with its 250 watt motor. What makes this grinder extra special is that it has a large 75 gram capacity removable bowl meaning that wet and dry goods can be used in the machine. Duronic suggest that it can be used to make wet foods such as purees, dips, and sauces, as well as being used to crush biscuits for dessert bases, and grind up your usually spices and nuts too – plus coffee beans of course! Cleaning is simple and quick and this grinder has stable non-slip feet and cable management in the base of the unit.
As of February 2021, this excellent coffee grinder is on offer at just £18.69 – that’s 38% off the RRP!
Muzili Coffee Grinder
The Muzili Coffee Grinder is a neat little machine that is very similar in specifications to the UUOUU model shown above. You get a 200 watt motor with an electric blade that spins at 22,000 RPM, a safety on-off system in the transparent lid, and a compact unit with cable management in the base. You will also receive a brush to make cleaning simpler however the manufacturer doesn’t mention if the bowl is washable so I would assume not. This coffee grinder can be used for nuts and spices, and the 304 stainless steel blades do a good job of grinding. The RRP of this blade coffee grinder is £27.99.
As I write this article (Feb 2021), the Muzili Coffee Grinder has 15% off the RRP, with the price now being only £23.79.
Wahl James Martin Grinder
The Wahl James Martin Blade Grinder has been on the best selling list for a very long time with consistently good reviews. It has a lower powered motor than others here being 150 watts, but conversely, it has a larger capacity than most at 70 grams. So what do you get for your RRP of £18.99? The body is brushed stainless steel which adds an air of durability to the grinder, and the design is different from others with the pulse button being halfway up the unit. As with other grinders, the machine can only be used when the safety lid is locked in place. The clear lid helps you see what coarseness of grind you are getting, but it is quite small. The other benefits you get with this machine is the longevity of the brand, and you get to see James Martin smiling at you from the box!
SHARDOR Coffee Grinder with Removable Stainless Steel Bowl
I’ve not heard of the brand SHARDOR before but they have three blade coffee grinders on Amazon’s best selling list, so they must be doing something right. We are going to look at the mid-range model here: the SHARDOR Coffee Grinder with Removable Stainless Steel Bowl. Straight away we can see that this coffee grinder has a 70 gram capacity removable bowl which makes both cleaning and transferring grinds easy and simple. The bowl has a measurement line which some people find very useful and its motor spins at up to 24,000 rpm, but it is not stated how powerful the motor is. Purchasers don’t seem to care though – they rate this coffee grinder highly. The long 105cm lead is stored in the base of the unit and you get a brush and a spoon with this blade grinder for your convenience. It has an RRP of £28.99 which we feel is good value for a coffee grinder with a removable bowl.
De’Longhi Blade KG49 Coffee Grinder
De’Longhi is a name synonymous with coffee so lets see what their best selling KG49 Blade Coffee Grinder is like. With an RRP of £32.99 this is by no means a cheap blade coffee grinder but it does have a huge 90 gram capacity which can make 12 cups with ease. Apart from the unusual and different design, this coffee grinder from De’Longhi has a couple of unique features. You have a bottom dial that you use to choose how many cups you plan on making, and three LED lights which light up as you use the machine to let you know the current consistency of the grinds. It has an integrated brush and a removable container for easy cleaning. This coffee grinder is very much liked by its users but unfortunately there appears to quite a few machine failures that is upsetting purchasers, and quite rightly so as it’s not a cheap product to buy.
Bodum 11160 Bistro Electric Blade Grinder
Another brand often associated with coffee is Bodum and here we look at their 11160 Bistro Electric Blade Grinder. The Bodum coffee grinder is manufactured in a few different colours but unfortunately at the time of writing only the matt black version seen here is available. With an RRP of £35.99, this grinder bears the usual stylistic design seen in other Bodum products, but is it a good blade grinder? This grinder has a 60 gram / 8 cup capacity and stainless steel cutting blades that spin at a precise RPM. As with many other grinders, the power cord is stored in the base and the transparent lid with safety pulse switch lets you see how coarse or fine the grounds are as you use the machine. Although this grinder bears the Bodum style and name, it’s not as well rated as others on this page despite being a best seller. If you like Bodum and have other Bodum products then this might look great in your kitchen, but don’t expect it to be the best grinder for your money!
Ikich Electric Coffee Grinder
Finally in our look at blade coffee grinders we have the Ikich Electric Coffee Grinder which has an RRP of £29.99. Personally we feel that this is a little high in price considering its specs, but this blade coffee grinder is often on offer for under £20 which makes it more reasonably valued. This grinder has a 150 watt motor and 60 gram capacity bowl which is not detachable. It comes with a brush for easy cleaning, a transparent lid so you can see the grinds during operation, and the power cable is stored at the base of the unit to keep things neat and tidy. The stainless steel blades whiz around rapidly and safely as you press the button that will only turn on as the lid is fitted securely. Purchasers are happy with this machine and they say it is relatively quiet but some have written that cleaning is not easy and it is common to find some coffee grinds escape when removing the lid.
As of February 2021 you can buy this blade coffee grinder for just £19.99, saving you a handy £10.00 on the RRP.
