Does the trick

Makes a huge difference to the quality of the coffee. Does the trick for me and happy with the purchase. Takes 10 seconds to make two shots, ground to perfection. Show details

Not made to last

Worked great for 3yrs. Motor burned out this morning. Also have a breville coffee machine that was purchased at the same time and is starting to fall apart. Won’t be purchasing Breville products anymore as they dont last.

Impeller worn out and not replaceable

We bought a BCG600SIL in June 2016 and have used it each morning to make 2 double-shot espressos, so it has ground only about 3500 shots. The plastic impeller has worn out and the machine now jams. Breville does not provide replacement impellers, and the machine is out of warranty. We now have to send an otherwise good appliance to landfill because of one cheap not-fit-for-purpose part. Not good enough Breville!

It works perfectly

I have only had this grinder for little over a month and basically just use it to grind coffee beans to make Espresso in a Moka. The grind settings go from very fine to coarse. I only grind a small amount each time on setting 12 and so far have had no problems at all.

Impeller problem

About 8 months after purchase we srarted having grind problems. The machine kept stopping and getting clogged. I thought the problem was the beans. Kept trying new ones. Now I've discovered that the fault is the impeller and Breville doesnt sell this spare part. Can't believe that such a big company has such small regard for its customers.

Grinds OK But Problems Start After Only 20 Months and Out Of Warranty

Found to grind coffee very well but has few design flaws and control switch is giving problems after only 20 months from purchase date. Design flaws include grind setting very easily moved inadvertently if someone moves the grinder on the bench and control switch timer is often moved from the set position simply by pressing the start button where the finger must turn slightly on the button. Now after 20 months the grinder may start unexpectedly just by adjusting the timer setting, the timer setting has become so worn where the notched 1 second settings can no longer be found and sometimes the grinder fails to switch off and by the time you switch off at power point, a few shots of ground coffee are wasted.

Will not last

Experienced the same problem as many other users with the impeller that wore out after 18 months, making the grinder unusable. So the unit got the way of the landfill since Breville considered it out of warranty. Bought a Rancillo, more than twice the price, but expect it to be working for much longer.

So hard to clean

I bought this grinder from myer along with the duo temp machine. The coffee machine is great but the grinder is just okay. My biggest grief was that I couldn't get the grinder apart to clean it! What a pain! I rang customer service for assistance and the person on the phone was rather useless and couldn't help me at all. So I took the grinder to a local service centre and it took two of them to pull it apart! Now it's been cleaned out and greased up so it works better but it could have been ultimately been better.

Breville BCG600SIL - DON'T BUY !!!

Purchased the grinder more than 8 months ago and i was happy in the beginning until the impeller start wear off which created lots of problem and frustration. The symptoms it grind the beans but it won't dispenses the ground coffee. You can't even find anything on the internet how to service the unit. To have the unit sent back to Breville for servicing would cost lots of money and it would be pointless as they are using the same impeller which eventually you will have similar problem in few months time. Until now, i am still trying to find ways to replace the impeller. I won't not recommend anyone to purchase this grinder.

Does a great job

I really like this machine - simple, but reliable and grinding the coffee to the right size and quantity. Owned it for about a year now.

I noted people mentioning it is a bit messy. That is true, but I think that might happen with every grinder of this type. Totally worth the cost.

Hi my timer seems to be not working on one second it overflows our single basket so we have to use it manually all the time is this solvable or replacement!

It is working for me but not precise, I’ve to tune and test it a few time to get to the right timing

I'm presently thinking about purchasing this machine however is the impeller issue solved? I purchased a De Longhi KG364J which is much cheaper but has the same issue, the burrs are not replaceable.
I am surprised that in this day and age of the internet information sources, manufacturers are taking customers for granted and expecting them to shell out their hard-earned dollars for shoddily designed goods that wind up in the tip in just a few years. Don't be surprised that these goods will remain on the shelves.

Thanks for that, I’m looking at the entry level Baratza version 2 at the moment.
Kind regards AJ

I bought this about mid last year from Myer, confirm the impeller is replaced with a stainless steel version

Happily using it as a general consumer who use it twice a day

My understanding of current Australian consumer Law is that you are required to have replacement parts available for a number of years. On top of this the warranty period the manufacturer gives is irrelevant in 2019, it is deemed that a product should work for a length of time that a reasonable person would expect for an item of it's type and in line with the advertising. This period would be a number of years beyond the time it takes for the impeller to fail.
With this in mind will Breville be helping out their valued customers?
