I got my grinder (the Kitchenaid), mucked with it today, and wrote a post that most people will go tl;dr.

As I understand it, i.e. heard from others who have performed the mazzer burr transplant, the grind time slows dramatically (but the grinds are much-improved). 3 seconds in its original state sounds so very fast, though.

My bad I was way off.  More like 6 seconds to fill my double basket.  Sorry.

Sorry my seat of the pants stop watch needs to be recalibrated  :)  I did the "one one thousand" count and came up with 6 seconds.  oops.

I am not going to say that they are wrong, but I find that commercial grinders chew through coffee at a much faster rate than home grinders do. My SJ grinders, with SJ burrs, take 6 to 7 seconds to grind 18 g of coffee.

That KA grinder must be running at an amazing speed. YMMV!

I timed my grinder for a 17g dose... it took about 60 seconds.

Ouch!  I wonder if the motor controls can be adjusted or even if that would be a good idea.
