Finally A Grinder That Works And Could Afford
After reading up on many grinders, this one really stood out to be a good balance of grinding quality and affordability. It's not exactly cheap, but is half the cost of a Rocky Rancilio and far exceeds the quality of your average $50 burr grinder. It's quiet, efficient, produces a consistent grind with no powder clumping, has virtually no static, and is attractive enough to leave out on the counter. It takes up less space than a 10 cup coffee maker and actually encourages me to grind fresh every day. For13 of 21 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »

Good value, decent performance
This product performs well and is easy to use. I would have preferred an Italian made grinder with more features. But frankly this was hundreds of dollars less and gets the job done. I make Espresso and you can get the grind just right to pull shots with a nice head of crema. Not too hard to clean. A little clunky of a design, but all in all it is worth the money and gets the job done. Made in China unfortunately.13 of 22 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you?

We just purchased our second one.
We bought one in 2007 based on reviews and the description. We love it. All the positive points made by other reviewers are true. So, in April 2008, we bought one for our 2nd home. The three best features:
1) In the dry winter months, every other grinder we've used spewed static charged ground coffee when spooning/pouring it out. Not the KitchenAid! The sturdy metal body is obviously grounded so no fly-away grounds. And the glass container doesn't conduct static electricity.
2) It has adjustable burr spacing to give a wide range of grinds. And not some little plastic dial, but a large sturdy dial with ridges that act as indicators. Perfect.
3) Finally, if you are tired of the high pitched whining of a typical grinder (first thing in the morning), then you will like the low RPM KitchenAid. Just a low, slow grinding noise. I think the low RPM also reduces static.
Negatives? Only a minor one. It seems that the variable grind creeps a little coarser over 3 or 4 uses. Not much, but it is noticeable. But just a tweak of the dial and it is back to where we want it.
If you grind your own every day, it's not expensive. Do the math. Awesome machine.
KitchenAid Proline Burr Grinder
We really like the KitchenAid Proline Burr Grinder. We have one plus I bought one for my parents. It is nice because you get a consistent grind every time based on a selection that ranges from coarse to very fine. My only complaint is I wish the11 of 26 users found this helpful.

A nice Step Up
I have had an inexpensive coffe grinder for years and decided to upgrade when the sale price was available. I should have done it years ago. It is worth the every penny and gives me many more options. If you like coffee this is the way to go.10 of 17 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Doesn't get better than this!
After years of grinding coffee beans at home this coffee grinder is the most expensive one and the best one I've ever purchased. I highly recommend this product if you appreciate less mess, less noise, easier grind selecting and a coffee grinder that is easy to clean.
We love this grinder. It allows a lot of choice on the fineness of the grind. Beyond the normal settings, you can open the machine and fine tune it. It's a great compliment to our espresso machine. The grinder is sturdy and easy to clean, too.10 of 13 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
We are total coffee nuts...even roast our own beans. (ok, we're from the Pacific Northwest!) Over the past twenty years we have had numerous coffee grinders from inexpensive to really pricey European models and this one, by far, is superior. Incredible precision of grind. Super clean grind....not all the10 of 18 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
This grinder is by far the best I have seen our used for home use. I drink expresso, drip and french press. Every grind on each setting is perfect. Very easy to use and the very little noise. I wish I had bought one of these when they first came out. This is my third pro line product from Kitchen Aid and I have not been disapointed in any of them. They are all top of the line preformers in my book.9 of 13 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Nice espresso grinder
Very sturdy and no cheap parts, this thing should last for a very long time. Have not tried anything else than expresso. I am still fine tuning my grinding settings and coffee packing pressure, but so far the results are as good as expected. Love the fact that you can fine-tune the fineness dial settings, this will be nice once the burrs start to wear out a bit, you can compensate the wear by making the burrs a bit closer. No coffee static problems thanks to glass bowls. The only thing to improve is that coffee beans can get stuck in the gap between the top bowl and the grinder. Not a deal breaker at all. Highly recommended.9 of 16 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Worth the cost
Expensive, but looks great on the counter and the grind is first rate.8 of 17 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
We had an old KitchenAid burr mill grinder (the one that looks like a gumball machine) and it was awful - clogged all the time and sprayed coffee grinds 180 degrees horizontally all over my kitchen and it was LOUD, and I was reluctant to spend the $$ on a new one.
Now, I don't regret it at all. This is MUCH quiter and has not clogged once. Also, it is much easier to control the consistency of the grinds. Honestly, I can't believe I lived with the old one for so long.

Nice but expensive
It is a very nice, yet pricy grinder. The machine is well built, and the grinds are consistent.7 of 14 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Coffee Grinder A ++
This is a great coffee grinder. The motor is quiet and you can set the grind easily and it DOES make your coffee taste (and smell) better. I'm glad I bought it and it looks great on my counter. The only thing I can say negative is that the last few beans have to be pushed down the shoot because they catch on the lip of the bean hopper and I want to have every bean ground. Otherwise this is a great grinder.7 of 17 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
So far, so good. It does what it has to do, consistent fine grind with no mess (I use finest grind for both, pump espresso machine and drip coffee maker, didn't try other settings). I was somewhat concerned that it doesn't have a timer, but I found that I can simply grind in the filter without using carafe. It does not spread mess around, very clean.7 of 10 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Solid grinder for the money
I use this for our office where we have a coffee pot and espresso machine, so this thing gets a work out every day and it's held up great.6 of 11 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Just a little change
Only one fault with grinder.Coffee beans do not drop through hopper.There is always some left in top of machine.You have to open lid and push the few remaning beans in or turn machine upside down to get beans to fall out. Machine is very quiet and efficient.I like the fact you can take the burrs apart for cleaning.I own another Kitchen Aid grinder and you cannot do this with this one.Also it is much noiser than this one.On a whole I would recommend this to other people to buy.It is made very good.6 of 11 users found this helpful.

For a long time, I weighed the price of this grinder and its potential service life against cheaper models, most of which would only seem to my understanding to last for a year or two. I've had this kitchenAid grinder for about a month and am move than pleased with it. I definitely recommend it.6 of 12 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
