Won’t grind for expresso
If you are looking for a grinder to grind for an expresso machine this isn’t your grinder. The expresso setting does grind anywhere near fine enough for an expresso machine.
Course grind for a French press is fine but you can get the same result with a cheaper grinder.
Also can’t grind directly into a standard sized portafilter. You need to grind into the container first which is annoying.

Some comments are quite unfair and out of the focus or is not the point
I have a Rancilio coffee machine that is a tank but needed to go away from the old centrifugal 45 dollars bean grinder. We all know that they are high speed and burn the beans even more.
Did I have the money to pay 400 or 600 dollars ? Yes, but why should I.
So, despite some comments, specially the guy that claims noise........for God sake what would you expect a total silence ?
I got the machine today, yes, it is a bit toyish, but seems to grind well and produce the results I did expect for what I was getting, I repeat, I could have got a Ranc...

Grinds coffee beans efficiently
I used to have a small coffee grinder with various settings. It broke recently so I upgraded to this grinder after doing some research. I vary the settings to get different grades of grind for a plunger. The machine grinds beans efficiently and quickly and can do anything from coarse to fine. It's able to grind a large quantity of beans however you'll need to empty the container it grinds the coffee into as it's not very large. As it is a little noisy I usually put my noise-cancelling headphones on while grinding. I have had to buy a litt...le hand held vacuum to clean up after grinding as it is a bit messy and you'll need to bean grinder from time to time. The price was a little off putting at first but as I wanted a grinder with a range of grind functions this was the only one that seems to meet the brief.

Delonghi Dedica KG 521 - Wont grind on fine settings
First one was sent back due to constant jamming on the fine setting. second unit does the same.
It only works when you run the beans through a course grind first then then again on the fine setting which is not how a coffee grind should be. Between the 2 units, they would have a run time of about 5 min. It will be getting sent back for refund as not fit for purpose.

Somewhat of a disappointment
Was looking for a decent coffee grinder (my first) to supplement my new espresso machine. Was hoping to secure something stylish which would function well and suit the appearance of my newly renovated kitchen.
Not so happy to report …I don’t think the Delonghi KG521.M is it.
The Delonghi machine is eye-catching, being finished in gleaming stainless steel with black accenting. Matches perfectly to my existing Delonghi Espresso maker.
Outwardly, it appears to have a strong build quality with no flimsy parts evident. I feel it should ...

Really enjoy my new coffee machien from Delonghi, takes a little while to warm up but other than that a great machine. I also got the matching grinder which is also excellent!

Espresso grind is not fine enough
I have a Breville Grinder Pro that I've been using and am able to get a good espresso with it. I bought this for the office and the grind on the espresso setting is still quite coarse and is unsuitable for making espresso. I instead have been using it with my Aeropress with reasonable results.
Apparently from reading other reviews online, the espresso grind is not suitable for a prosumer unpressurized portafilter. HOWEVER, even with my pressurized basket I am still getting unfavorable results--brown foam (instead of dark liquid) coming out of my machine immediately after pre-infusion and until completion of the pull.
It would be helpful if Delonghi could respond with some trick or way to adjust the fine-ness of the grind.
Don’t buy it if you like a good espresso!
DeLonghi Coffee Grinder KG 521
With this DeLonghi grinder KG 521 I’m not able to grind coffee beans fine enough to get good espresso.
My previous DeLonghi grinder KG 100 was excellent.
I did expect equal quality or better.
I wrote to customer support, however I never received a reply.
