KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
Adam Reisner (quality: 5.3)
Bottom Line: i expect to be grinding my drip with this for quite some time
Alan Bryant (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: Attractive, well-built machine that will satisfy some, but probably not espresso "power users."
Amon Thornburg (quality: 3.2)
Bottom Line: 158.00 buy it!, 200.00 go ITalian! to bad whirlpool has once bought anotehr great brand. French press to espresso, it is what is! Its great!
Andy Andrews (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: Great deal
Benson Tongue (quality: 6.3)
Bottom Line: Relatively expensive and unable to produce a fine grind.
Bill Miano (quality: 9.2)
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.
Bob Abbott (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Could be one of the best, if not for beans that lodge.
Brian Pierce (quality: 3.5)
Bottom Line: Avoid this machine
Byron Ala (quality: 7.3)
Bottom Line: If you like to mod products and can get this for cheap, it may be for you, otherwise, buy something better.
Chris Boaro (quality: 6.4)
Bottom Line: Brutishly well built, attractive, and highly capable within its limits.
Chris Stewart (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Great for medium and coarse grind brewing.
Christopher Boffoli (quality: 7.1)
Bottom Line: Dualit-like industrial design, heavy and durable, most details done right, other major things overlooked. Not bad overall.
Clemens Anhuth (quality: 7.3)
Bottom Line: One of the, or maybe the best choice for home use in my opinion - if it performs adequately.
Curtis Scheelke (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: If you want a grinder that's fast, easy, and priced right, put this on your short list.
Dan Doris (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Simply the best low end grinder i used, i tried most all the other popular low end grinders (4 of them), getting the ProLine was a relief ;)
Bottom Line: Not an espresso- geek-worthy unit, but for most folks with normal espresso and coffee needs this works great and is built like a tank.
Dennis Zarlengo (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: The quality of operation and build make this grinder a good investment
Don Scott (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Awesome grinder for french press or drip, But does not work for Espresso
Donny Raus (quality: 8.6)
Bottom Line: There are better grinders that deliver a more uniform/consistent grind at a lower cost. However, if aesthetics, usability, and hopper capacity are priority and your willing to compromise the grind and beverage quality this machine is for you.
Doug Dollahan (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Aesthetic, heavy duty, easy to use, great support...worth every penny!
