Written on: 25/04/2010 by Keith Britton (1 review written)

I have had this grinder for about five years, using it at least twice a week to grind coffee. Never had a problem with it; it does what it's supposed to. Would love to buy another one to take to our place in Spain but cant find one anywhere… Read Full Review

“I've had this Russell Hobbs 9702 coffee grinder for...”

Written on: 27/09/2009

I've had this Russell Hobbs 9702 coffee grinder for I-don't-know-how-many years and it's been brilliant - mind you, I haven't used it for grinding coffee beans, I use it for grinding spices (it's the perfect size for that).

Unfortunately the lid has now broken (the problem previously identified by other reviewers)so I need to get hold of a replacement lid or two. Any suggestions for cheap and fast suppliers of spare lids?

I can't really rate it for service and support because I no longer… Read Full Review

“The grinder on the Russell Hobbs 9702 worked fine for...”

Written on: 03/08/2009 by mmuuss (1 review written)

The grinder on the Russell Hobbs 9702 worked fine for a few years-but like other reviews have said, the weak link is the plastic 'tongue' on the lid which needs to engage before the machine will grind. This has just broken on mine, making the machine useless-unless I can find a replacement lid! Does anyone know where to get them?… Read Full Review

“It is only a matter of when, and not if, the safety...”

Written on: 23/07/2009

It is only a matter of when, and not if, the safety plug will snap off the lid of the grinder, making the unit inoperable. The lug is so incredibly fragile and badly designed. Mine lasted just over a year before breaking, even though I was aware of the problem and handled the lid with kid-gloves.

The rest of the russell hobbs 9702 design is neat and well finished with a nice stainless steel shell. It is also quite small (in a good way) and easily stored away. I found the light system (combined… Read Full Review

“The Russell Hobbs 9702 coffer grinder is a bad design...”

Written on: 22/02/2009

The Russell Hobbs 9702 coffer grinder is a bad design all round. I have had 3 replacement lids (2 under guarentee). Drop the lid and the plastic lug which operates the safety switch snaps off rendering the grinder effectively useless. A replacement (if you can find one costs over 8GBP). A good point is it's cheap… Read Full Review

I would not have bought this Russell Hobbs 9702 if I had known how poor it is. Poor grind, lights do not work properly, cannot cope with small amounts of beans very well, overheats very quickly… Read Full Review

The little traffic lights on the front of the Russell Hobbs 9702 are supposed to tell you how long to grind for. They never worked for me… Read Full Review
