SHARDOR CG9406-UL2 Conical Burr Coffee Grinder Review


SHARDOR CG9406-UL2 is a conical burr coffee grinder with 200 watt motor. It’s relatively inexpensive model yet it’s not among the very cheapest units which gives some hope it’s somewhat decent, but is it?


Grinding

When it comes to grinding SHARDOR CG9406-UL2 is one of the best burr grinders for money. It’s still a downgrade compared to Breville BCG820BSS Pro or Baratza Encore but it grinds really well for money.

First of all it has pretty wide variety of grinds. Other burr grinders at this price point usually can only grind coarse to medium, medium to fine or just fine. SHARDOR CG9406-UL2 can grind coarse enough for french press and fine enough for espresso to be acceptable.

Second, grinds are consistent. They are not perfectly uniform but surprisingly close it. Not many other grinders at this price point can compete with SHARDOR.


Noise

All burr grinders are somewhat loud, some less, some more. SHARDOR CG9406-UL2 is on the quieter side which your family members will appreciate.


Bean hopper & grounds bin

Bean hopper capacity is 8.46 oz whereas grinds bin 4.58 oz. Untypical for burr grinders of this price it doesn’t produce any static cling making it a lot less messy than most.


Controls

SHARDOR CG9406-UL2 features 35 different grind coarseness settings which can be adjusted by rotating bean hopper. It grinds 2 to 12 cups at a time and the amount is adjusted with a dial located on the front of burr grinder. Controls are simple


Features

Upper burr is removable for cleaning. SHARDOR CG9406-UL2 comes with a brush just for that purpose.


Conclusions

Not only CG9406-UL2 is the best SHARDOR burr grinder we have written about so far it’s also among the best at this price point. Inexpensive burr grinders can often be disappointing in their performance and even though CG9406-UL2 is not a proper replacement for a more expensive unit it still performs surprisingly well. This is a great entry unit for those who are not ready yet to spend a lot on a serious burr grinder.
