Should I buy a blade coffee grinder?

Blade coffee grinders

Pros: Usually the least expensive. Easy to maintain and suitable for most coffee makers…French presses, drip type coffee makers. For the budget conscious.

Cons: Grounds lack consistency in size. By chopping the beans the blade is not able to cut the beans into uniform grounds, resulting in larger pieces mixed in with smaller pieces. Blade grinders tend to burn the coffee due to the high heat created during the grinding process. Although more expensive you will notice a big difference in the flavor of your coffee with a burr grinder over a blade grinder.
