Bottom Line: Easy to use, durable and grinds as expected
Positive Product Points

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)

Detailed Commentary

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.

Buying Experience

Everything Kitchen ! Easy, took a long time with shipping... but good experience overall
