surprisingly very good
it grinds coffee beans nice and fine for my espresso machine.
Pulverized very hard cassia bark and whole spices for a dry masala mix with no problem.
It is very consistent and quick.
Just choose the quantity and grind (fine ~course), push the start button and voila! Less than 30 seconds it's done perfectly!
I really love that the grinding cup can be detached for washing.
I hope it lasts 20+ years like my previpus Ronson grinder but I doubt it. Fingers crossed!

Designed by someone who makes their own Coffee
After trying a Breville (pretty good) and Sunbeam (terrible) attempt at a coffee grinder, we were looking at a $200+ burr grinder to get something half decent to make coffee with.
But reading the reviews here on Product Review about the Kmart Anko, we thought it might be worth one more try.
It's only early days yet, but this grinder works like it was made by someone who enjoys making coffee.
2x settings to control grind and cup size, (which give perfect results) , coffee comes out of the grind bowl easily without all the bogging and sticking ...

Faultless Coffee Grinder
Works perfectly - grinds to a fine, medium or coarse texture AUTOMATICALLY.
I've highlighted that because I didn't realise it had a timer/sensor that automatically stops grinding when the right texture has been reached.
Markings inside grinder easily show the amount of beans you need for 4 cups, 6 cups etc - only a guideline but has seemed pretty spot on so far.
BTW its electric not battery powered (prefer that anyway) but no cord is shown on picture so wasn't 100% sure.
AND it's a really modern design, looks great on the bench.
Well done Kmart, its a winner!

Can't go wrong
Usually I have a firm dislike for grinders of this style but this one works a treat. It has a wide opening to scoop the grounds out without knocking the spoon on the side. It has a few settings and is definitely worth the $30 it costs.

Great budget machine
Blade grinders are the cheap alternative to the more purist conical burr style machines, but at this price, and the fact that it works so well, I can't fault it.
It's early days, but I like the fact it is such a simple machine. Less to go wrong, easy to clean, and if it lasts only a year or 2 , I'll buy another. I could buy one every year and still be ahead!
The simple courseness adjustment sets the timer, and seems to give a fairly consistent even grind each time.
I'll update if anything goes wrong, but so far no issues.

Kmart Does it again, amazing pricing and product.
What can I say Kmart does it once again, amazing pricing and an amazing product in one; their own brand Anko Coffee Grinder, for the measly sum of $30.00.
Three speed, coarse, medium and fine; just a press of a button and it turns off automatically when done, It also has a cable tidy in the bottom, pull out and wind the cable out of sight, just the plug on show; perfect every time. It also has a cleaning brush built into the body of the Coffee Grinder
It’s far better than a well known brand name coffee grinder twice the price, which I now use for grinding spices.
Purchased in November 2019 for $30.00.
Great machine for all the great things in life ;)
The anko coffee grinder we purchased from Kmart is great!
Works well, has different settings for fineness, etc.
A little bit noisy but that's about as much as I can complain :)

Perfect coffee grinder for home use
Bought some coffee beans and was for the lookout for a cheap, but yet functional coffee grinder. This one is super quiet, has multiple grind settings and the chamber with the coffee can be removed for mess-free pouring and cleaning. Great product and exactly what I was looking for.
Questions & Answers
Hi, how's the ground consistency (especially with medium or coarse)? I don't expect it to be amazing, but just wondering what you guys have experienced with the settings, bcs I found it quite interesting to have multiple grind size on a blade grinder. Thanks heaps! :)
Just wondering is the blade supposed to be loose. Brand new out of box and the blade housing is loose as, very wobbly. Tightens a little once seated in the machine but still wobbly!
Hi Bob I bought this and then found out these kind of grinders produce sub par coffee because they produce uneven sized granules meaning some get over brewed and some get under brewed and ended up buying a small ceramic burr manual grinder off eBay which produces even sized bean granules which in turn produces much better tasting coffee. I’d return it, get a refund and buy the ceramic.
Does this coffee grinder grind fine enough to make espresso coffee, namely for cappuccinos.
yes it does. And if you want finer than what it does on the fine setting, you could always push the button again to grind down even further.
