Breville BDC650BSS Review
- Adjustable Burr Grinder
- Brews up to 12 servings
- 12-cup dual wall stainless steel thermal carafe
- Gold tone filter.
The Breville BDC650BSS, also known as the Breville BDC650BSS Grind Control is a full automatic coffee grinder and calibrator all-in-one, made for coffee lovers who want to fully experience great tasting and properly made coffee—without the need to purchase multiple machines or learn different techniques of coffee preparation. In addition to the gold tone filter and burr grinder, the BDC650BSS also comes with a 12-cup thermal carafe designed to store and keep coffee warm. While it keeps the coffee hot for hours, the pouring of coffee from it can prove arduous—with the shape and pouring mechanism of the carafe being poorly designed for pouring.
How does it work?
The operation of the Breville BDC650BSS is relatively simple—as per the idea behind its design. Users need first to pour their whole coffee bean of choice into the hopper chamber at the back of the system, as well as filling the front chamber with water as per the desired number coffee servings wanted. You can select on the front panel how many cups you want to make, as well as choose the desired strength of the brew you desire, anywhere from 1 – 8 on the spectrum given. If you need to know further details or receive other instruction—refer to the quick start guide that comes with the machine. The BDC650BSS is simple and straightforward to operate—appealing to the advertised ease from Breville. Being an all-in-one coffee drip machine, with an in-built grinder, it does mean the BDC650BSS lacks certain features that the standalone equivalents do have. For example, the BDC650BSS lacks many of the grinding options seen in most dedicated grinders—there is no option to grind course or fine. The grinds are consistent however, and it does low quality job.
How long does it last ?
While the BDC650BSS is made with a quality stainless steel housing, it comes with a 1-year warranty only. You shouldn’t expect the BDC650BSS to break well after this time frame however, provided it is maintained with frequent cleaning and upkeep.
How to clean it ?
It is advisable that you get into performing daily cleaning on your Breville BDC650BSS to ensure you prolong the life of the machine, and maintain the quality and taste of the coffee it produces. Breville BDC650BSS cleaning involves: - Rinsing the carafe, gold tone filter, and filter basket after every use - Clean the grinds tray at the back before putting new beans in. The LED screen on the coffee maker will eventually prompt the message “clean coffee chute” when one or more problems exist.
Conclusion: Should I buy it ?
The Breville BDC650BSS Grind Control is definitely a worthy choice for people that want good standard coffee with not much hassle—producing much higher quality than the average inexpensive home coffee machine. If you consider yourself a coffee connoisseur of sorts, then this machine will likely not fit the bill for you—it might pay to look elsewhere for separate high grade coffee components so you can take more control of the process.
