KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
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.
Robert Uy. (quality: 8.9)
Bottom Line: I review other criticisms of this unit honestly. In short this is the best grinder I have found for Turkish, which surely makes it good for pump espresso. Slow rpm makes a large taste difference!
Gino Magnotta (quality: 8.7)
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.
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.
Randall Nortman (quality: 8.6)
Bottom Line: A heavy, solidly built piece of counter jewelry that does everything you'd want other than grind coffee well.
Troy Bash (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Don't listen to the negative reviews, this is a great grinder!!!
Jeff Sheltren (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Very sturdy, glass catcher prevents static in the grounds and is easy to clean; gives a nice, even grind.
Greg Hancock (quality: 7.6)
Bottom Line: Excellent aesthetics, almost industrial design, and does its job well. Minor problems pale in light of its overall excellence.
Ted O (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Nice Appearance, Feel and Quality.. but Not Really Designed and Built for Espresso Enthusiasts
John Poros (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Solidly built, but not geared toward espresso.
Alan Bryant (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: Attractive, well-built machine that will satisfy some, but probably not espresso "power users."
Steve Engelbrecht (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: This is the most beautiful grinder I 've ever seen, but it does have drawbacks.
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.
Kent Simmons (quality: 7.3)
Bottom Line: A great machine IF you like your coffee French or if you like espresso - but its not capable of both grinds without recallibration.
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.
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.
Roman Beyga (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Great Grinder for the mainstream coffee geek!
Chris Stewart (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Great for medium and coarse grind brewing.
Jack Otter (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Versitile, consistant, and built to last- this little beauty is a beast of a grinder.
Richard Abrams (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Acceptable value well made machine which contributes to making Italian coffee bar standard home espresso.
