Format for submission Need Statement: The coffee grinder has sufficient capacity. Metric and units: Bean capacity in oz. List of 3 competitors: Best: Capresso Infinity Burr Grinder, 8-1/2 ounces Middle: Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind, 8 ounces Worst: Krups F203, 3 ounces US Patent: Title: Coffee grinder United States Patent Abstract: A coffee grinder has a control circuit for its electric grinder motor which includes a three- position control switch having a resident "Off" position, a resident "On" position, and a non-resident or momentary "On plus Start" position. In the "Off" position power is interrupted to all circuits of the grinder. The "On" position is a resting position which is resumed after the start of each grind cycle in readiness for the start of another grind cycle. The "On plus Start" position is momentary and in which a relay is energized so as to complete a circuit that energizes the grinder motor. In one type of coffee grinder the electrical control circuit includes a timer which can be set to determine the length of the grinding cycle. In another type of coffee grinder the length of the grinding cycle is determined by the presence of a ground coffee receiving bag or other container. In both types of grinders the normal grinding cycle can be terminated by placing control switch in its "Off" position.
