DeLonghi KG521M Melitta Calibra
3 Reasons For
Built-in Dispenser
The DeLonghi KG521M has a built-in dispenser, however the Melitta Calibra does not.

A built-in dispenser is a system to automatically portion and deposit out ground coffee. The doses are normally measured in 1/2/etc 'cups' of grinds - i.e enough grounds to make a single cup of coffee.

This helps reduce mess from grinding coffee, and makes transferring the grounds to the coffee maker much easier.

Timer
The Melitta Calibra has a timer, whereas the DeLonghi KG521M does not have this feature.

A timer function on a grinder allows you to set the coffee beans to grind for a set amount of time (10 seconds, 30 seconds, etc). The grinder will turn on for the time selected, then automatically disengage.

When using a blade grinder, a timer is helpful because increased time is the main way to achieve a finer grind - however you have to be careful not to give it too much time, otherwise the coffee will end up overground and burnt by the friction. Therefore a timer can help give a uniform grind level.
