KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
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.
Bottom Line: For the price, look elsewhere.
Bottom Line: Excellent - considering the basket filter drip advantage.
Bottom Line: Kitchenaid - metal, glass, power, durability, decent function, very reasonable price.

Bottom Line: If you live in moderation this is a great grinder.
Ola Bovin (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: Grinder could last a life time if the burrs, auger, bearing and adjustment had been made from higher quality and precision. Motor and the casing is heavy and strong. I like the way it looks.

Shannon Ayres (quality: 4.3)
Bottom Line: For the money, this is a good grinder with many thoughtful features to outweigh the several design flaws.
Marie Waters (quality: 4.5)
Bottom Line: If you want a perfect cup of coffee, this grinder will give you excellent results, no matter which method of brewing you prefer at any given time.
Mark Babbe (quality: 4.7)
Bottom Line: Not for Espresso. Could be nice for drip coffee.
Tom Knight (quality: 4.9)
Bottom Line: I'm surprised that Kitchen Aid put out such a poorly designed and manufactured piece to represent their top of the line grinder.
Mike Ross (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Not cheap but worth the cost for an extremely well-made grinder that will last years. Perfect for the home roaster.
Ron Nelson (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Works great for drip coffee! Love it so far!
