KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
Robert Deason (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Fantastic. Buy one
Tom Bodet (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Nice attempt at a multi purpose grinder but falls a bit short.
Don Scott (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Awesome grinder for french press or drip, But does not work for Espresso
Steve Pro (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Missed potential for a few dollars in parts
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.
Alan Bryant (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: Attractive, well-built machine that will satisfy some, but probably not espresso "power users."
Troy Bash (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Don't listen to the negative reviews, this is a great grinder!!!
Doug Dollahan (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Aesthetic, heavy duty, easy to use, great support...worth every penny!
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.
Stefan Berggren (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Easy to use, durable and grinds as expected
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!
Mark Shusted (quality: 2.1)
Bottom Line: Beans don't burn but motor does.
Paul Hanley (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Potential unrealized. Maybe future revisions will fix the design flaws and poor quality control.
Ted O (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Nice Appearance, Feel and Quality.. but Not Really Designed and Built for Espresso Enthusiasts
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.
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 ;)
Stuart Niemtzow (quality: 6.7)
Bottom Line: Hard to imagine a better quality, easier to use grinder under $200-- or even for way more--- for home use.
Mark Babbe (quality: 4.7)
Bottom Line: Not for Espresso. Could be nice for drip coffee.
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.
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.
