It's "Beauty is onlySkin Deep". as in Handsome machine, ugly grinds.
Positive Product Points
Awesome, rugged look. Minimal plastic used in construction. Price can't be beat ($99.95 for new grinder, shipping from Amazon.com was free!)
Negative Product Points
Inconsistent grind. Grinds get all over the place around grinder. Beans get hung up inside grinder.
I aways liked this grinder in the looks department. It is definitely a "looker". When I found out that I could get it for only $99.95 NEW on Amazon.com, with FREE shipping, I jumped at the chance. I enjoy using the grinder except for one very important detail: inconsistent grinds. For a grinder from such a noteworthy company as Kitchenaid to produce such a grinder that makes inconsistent grinds is outrageous. I know that I only paid $99.95 for it (saving grace for this purchase), but still I am very disappointed in that the grinders are powder/chunk variety.
Excellent. Amazon.com cannot be beat as far as I am concerned.
