Krups Fast Touch 203-42 Review



The Krups Fast Touch 203-42 wins high praise from users for its utility, long life, and compact design. Some users caution that it isn't the best choice if you use a French press coffee maker, but many say it's the right choice for drip coffee makers with a cone-shaped paper filter.

A reviewer at Coffee Maker Review notes that this coffee grinder preserves the rich aroma of the coffee beans. Another asserts that not many coffee grinders are as useful, long lasting, and compact as the Krups Fast Touch 203-42 (starting at $19, Amazon). A reviewer at Epinions recommends this grinder for people who use auto-drip coffee makers and people who make espressos, but not for those who need the larger ground size (used for a French press coffee maker). The Krups 203-42 is a compact coffee grinder with an oval design and stainless steel blades. It can grind up to 3 ounces of coffee at one time. It has one non-adjustable grind setting and comes with a limited one-year warranty.

The Krups 203-42 is a simple well-designed coffee grinder and users report being very satisfied with it for many years. If you are looking for a cheap, solid, reliable coffee grinder, look no further.
