Ina Garten loves the best-selling Krups coffee bean grinder — and it's on sale for less than $20

When it comes to cooking and life in general, the legendary Ina Garten is everything and more — especially when it comes to relatability. Her kitchen go-tos include super-affordable gadgets and she really loves her husband Jeffrey, calling him her "secret ingredient" to life. One of the things that Ina credits for her swoon-worthy marriage is a really, really good cup of coffee — and she says that Jeffrey's coffee can't be beat. And a good cup of coffee needs a reliable at-home coffee grinder. And hers is so much cheaper than you'd think. Listed on the official Barefoot Contessa equipment list is the No. 1 Amazon best-seller Krups One-Touch Coffee and Spice Grinder — and you can grab it right now for $19 (that's 21% off!).

The oval shape of Ina's go-to coffee grinder makes it super easy to pour the grounds into a filter.

Why is it a good deal?

Good coffee grinders can retail upwards of $100. Not only is this Barefoot Contessa-approved beauty affordable at its original price of $24, right now it's marked down to less than $20. Not only is the price right, you're going to save so, so much money on coffee since whole coffee beans are significantly cheaper than pre-ground coffee.

Why do I need this?

Honestly, anything with an Ina stamp of approval is golden in the eyes of, well, everything delicious. Even if you're not an Ina fan (um, why not?), a good cup of coffee can make or break your day. If you're new to the whole grinding your own beans thing, the Krups coffee grinder is the most user-friendly one out there.

It works by pushing down a single button on the lid. So simple! The longer you hold the button, the finer the coffee grind. Keep an eye on it to make sure that the coffee grounds are to your liking. Grind the beans so they're extra coarse for cold brew, classically coarse for French press, medium for drip coffee and pour over, or fine for espresso. As far as volume goes, the Krups coffee grinder can process up to 12 tablespoons of coffee beans

Another selling point? You can use the Krups coffee grinder for more than just coffee. Ina uses it for spices, nuts and herbs. Because you have a ton of control over the size of your grounds, you can easily use it for different recipes — like larger pine nut pieces for a salad or finely ground pine nuts for a delicious bowl of pesto.

What reviewers say

"This is really low maintenance, fast and totally grinded to a powder-like grind with a low pleasant hummm from the grinder in seconds. It does make that cool morning buzz sound when grinding," shares one five-star reviewer. They continued by noting: "It does not however come with a measuring spoon or a’s fine I'm using a really old measure that was included inside Chock Full O' Nuts coffee cans from years ago."

"I bought this particular Krups coffee grinder mainly because my mom has one that is coming up on 20 years old," explains another Amazon shopper. "Side by side comparison of the 20 year old white Krups, and my brand new black Krups revealed almost no difference. They are identical. You know what that means to me? It means the company knows they make a great product that lasts for years, so why change it? All I can say is I wish Krups made cars."

However, one five-star Amazon customer who has owned the Krups grinder for 10 years (and adores it!) flags the cleaning process. "Not always the easiest thing to clean out, but it still only takes like a minute. Wish it came apart to make the cleaning easier, but no biggie considering this thing will basically last you forever if you take care of it."

The lid-activated safety ensures the blades only spin when the lid is secure.
