Capacity: 50 grams
The German company Cloer is not one of the best known in other countries, but it is a company of great prestige in the entire European coffee sector. Their Italian coffee machine Cloer 5928, is an absolute leader in the market, and this Cloer 7579 grinder is the perfect complement to enjoy your freshly ground coffee at home. Let’s get to know it!
The Cloer 7579 grinder retains almost all the qualities that have made the Cloer 5928 coffee maker famous. It is an electric blade grinder made of stainless steel, with a capacity of 50 grams in the hopper. It has 150 watts of power and a series of very practical small details, which play in its favour when it comes to establishing a final assessment of the product. We will talk about them later.
Its operation is quite simple, as with all the electric grinders in this range, and it is articulated through a large central switch, which is black. When we press it, the blades of the Cloer 7579 grinder start to turn. When we release it, the grinding stops, just like that. There are no more buttons, pushers or indicators to distract the user from the main function of the appliance.
Cloer 7579: electric blade grinder
It is in the details that this Cloer 7579 coffee grinder stands out from its competitors. We begin with its design: a clean piece, without edges, made of polished stainless steel, and with a practical transparent cover (although the edges are made of metal) that prevents the beans from jumping from the top when the blades start to turn.
Another important aspect is safety, especially in a knife mill that can crush everything that falls into it without any consideration. For this reason, the Cloer 7579 incorporates a safety system that locks the appliance if the lid is off. In other words: the Cloer 7579 coffee grinder only works if the lid is correctly fitted – goodbye to careless accidents!
If you look down, you will find that you can pick up and wind up the surplus cable at the base of the grinder (see photo later in this article). This means that there are no cables hanging around or bothering you in the kitchen, and this is a really well-solved detail by the designers of the German house.

Disadvantages of the Cloer 7579 grinder
- As it is a knife mill, and not a grinder, it lacks the versatility of other mills that allow different grinding thicknesses to be established.
- The capacity of this Cloer 7579 is not excessive: only 50 grams of coffee.
- We cannot recommend it for very fine grinding or for grinding espresso coffee.
Why buy a Cloer 7579 grinder?
We already know that blade grinders, due to the difficulty they have in establishing a precise and fine grinding, are not suitable for making espressos. But there are many consumers whose coffee requirements are more than satisfied by a grinder of these characteristics. In that segment, this Cloer 7579 is one of the most attractive and reliable options.
The Cloer 7579 is particularly impressive for its steel casing, its durability and its striking appearance, which is not at all usual for a grinder of this price.
On the other hand, as we have already said, we do not recommend it for espressos or large mills.
In the segment of blade mills, perhaps its main competitor is the Moulinex AR1105 model and also the Arendo Caffetiamo. There are other options, such as the Kyocera CM-50 or the MiniMoka GR-0203, but they are usually somewhat more expensive than this one. And the added bonus of being made of stainless steel is an extra advantage that very few mills in this range can offer.
