This grinder is built like a tank. Also the glass grind catcher is a burly enough to last, despite comments. It low RPM really produce a good consistent grind. Easy to clean... Looks good on my stainless countertop if thats important. Powerful motor Adjustment dial easy to turn.
Negative Product Points
Heavy (if that is a problem for some folks) Leaves a lot of grinds in the burr chamber. The coffee grind drop orifice could be better centered. Needs to be calibrated for finer grind (espresso)
Of all the burr grinders I have used, this is the best so far. I would recommend to people worried about spending 159.00 to do it now instead of later. I bought two burr grinders and was not satified until I bought this Kitchen Aid Pro-line. The beans sometime fail to drop in (due to angular slope of the conical drop. But this not too big of a deal. Just push em in with a spoon/chopstick... As mentioned above, when grinds enter the catch cup it tends to pile up on one side. It would have been better if the grind drop would have been back a bit, to center the grinds. Over all I am quite pleased. The low RPMS really cut down on dust and static.
Everything Kitchen ! Easy, took a long time with shipping... but good experience overall
