Mark Shusted (quality: 2.1) 01.17.2006 Rating: 1.0
Bottom Line: Beans don't burn but motor does.
Mark Babbe (quality: 4.7) 04.05.2006 Rating: 3.6
Bottom Line: Not for Espresso.  Could be nice for drip coffee.
Brian Pierce (quality: 3.5) 01.05.2004 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: Avoid this machine
Bill Miano (quality: 9.2) 07.17.2006 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Good grinder for press or drip, but it falters trying to consistently grind for espresso.  Make sure that you buy from a vendor with a good return policy.
Jesse Robinson (quality: 4.3) 10.19.2004 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Could have been a contender, but it's just some more junk.
Benson Tongue (quality: 6.3) 01.03.2004 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Relatively expensive and unable to produce a fine grind.
Mike Wisniewski (quality: 5.3) 04.06.2007 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Expensive Grinder for Drip and Press, not worth it for Espresso.
Pascal Diamond (quality: 4.1) 06.22.2005 Rating: 6.2
Bottom Line: Great looks, pity it couldn't deliver on the grind.
Steve Pro (quality: 6.8) 10.11.2005 Rating: 6.2
Bottom Line: Missed potential for a few dollars in parts
Gino Magnotta (quality: 8.7) 05.14.2008 Rating: 6.2
Bottom Line: Has some very good features to it, and could have been an excellent grinder.  Has fundamental flaws however which lets it down badly.
Tom Knight (quality: 4.9) 12.20.2004 Rating: 6.8
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.
Patti Ratts (quality: 5.9) 03.05.2004 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Lovely machine, good value.
Paul Hanley (quality: 6.0) 02.04.2006 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Potential unrealized. Maybe future revisions will fix the design flaws and poor quality control.
Randall Nortman (quality: 8.6) 04.28.2007 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: A heavy, solidly built piece of counter jewelry that does everything you'd want other than grind coffee well.
Ola Bovin (quality: 4.0) 11.12.2012 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Grinder could last a life time if the burrs, auger, bearing and adjustment had been made from higher quality and precision. Motor and the casing is heavy and strong. I like the way it looks.
RA Schuppe (quality: 6.8) 11.19.2003 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Too bad about some of this grinder's design flaws. KA says they're considering a revision. Hope they're listening.
Joel Finkelstein (quality: 5.8) 11.16.2006 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Great grinder once you realize grinds only look too big. I only wish it didn't trap so many beans or was easy to clean on a daily basis.
Stefan L (quality: 6.0) 11.28.2012 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Heavy duty grinder that gives heavy duty results.
Ted O (quality: 7.5) 02.18.2006 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Nice Appearance, Feel and Quality.. but Not Really Designed and Built for Espresso Enthusiasts
Tom Bodet (quality: 6.8) 09.06.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Nice attempt at a multi purpose grinder but falls a bit short.
