KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
Zack Gill (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: better for espresso than the reviews here indicate, especially when modified, although not without flaws
Troy Bash (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Don't listen to the negative reviews, this is a great grinder!!!
Tom Lewis (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Industrial strength grinder ! Killer grinder for drip and/or press pot - can do fine espresso grinds too, but not easily
Tom Knight (quality: 4.9)
Bottom Line: I'm surprised that Kitchen Aid put out such a poorly designed and manufactured piece to represent their top of the line grinder.
Tom Bodet (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Nice attempt at a multi purpose grinder but falls a bit short.
Ted O (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Nice Appearance, Feel and Quality.. but Not Really Designed and Built for Espresso Enthusiasts
Stuart Niemtzow (quality: 6.7)
Bottom Line: Hard to imagine a better quality, easier to use grinder under $200-- or even for way more--- for home use.
Steve Pro (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Missed potential for a few dollars in parts
Steve Lathan (quality: 4.3)
Bottom Line: If the terminator drank coffee and needed a grinder this would be it.
Steve Engelbrecht (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: This is the most beautiful grinder I 've ever seen, but it does have drawbacks.
Stefan L (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Heavy duty grinder that gives heavy duty results.
Stefan Berggren (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Easy to use, durable and grinds as expected
Shannon Ayres (quality: 4.3)
Bottom Line: For the money, this is a good grinder with many thoughtful features to outweigh the several design flaws.
Scott Riedesel (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: A very nice heavy duty grinder with a few hits, but more pluses....
Bottom Line: Excellent - considering the basket filter drip advantage.
Ron Taylor (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Outstanding machine for french press and drip coffee grinding!
Ron Nelson (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Works great for drip coffee! Love it so far!
Roman Beyga (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Great Grinder for the mainstream coffee geek!
Robert Uy. (quality: 8.9)
Bottom Line: I review other criticisms of this unit honestly. In short this is the best grinder I have found for Turkish, which surely makes it good for pump espresso. Slow rpm makes a large taste difference!
Robert Deason (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Fantastic. Buy one
