KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
Jack Otter (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Versitile, consistant, and built to last- this little beauty is a beast of a grinder.
Steve Pro (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Missed potential for a few dollars in parts
Tom Bodet (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Nice attempt at a multi purpose grinder but falls a bit short.
Robert Combs (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: If great price, real customer support, spare parts, and most of all, superior performance is important to you, than I highly recommend this unit. Mark, thanks for getting me off the fence with this unit.
RA Schuppe (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Too bad about some of this grinder's design flaws. KA says they're considering a revision. Hope they're listening.
Leonard Wells (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: It's "Beauty is onlySkin Deep". as in Handsome machine, ugly grinds.
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.
John Boddie (quality: 6.6)
Bottom Line: When I was using my Solis Maestro, I always felt that Iíd have to upgrade at some point. With the Proline, I donít have that feeling any more.
Josh Kempthorne (quality: 6.4)
Bottom Line: This is a great grinder for limited budget or space. Its tops on style. Don't be scared off by (maybe over fussy) reviews
Chris Boaro (quality: 6.4)
Bottom Line: Brutishly well built, attractive, and highly capable within its limits.
Marty Davids (quality: 6.3)
Bottom Line: Great, solid and versatile grinder.
Benson Tongue (quality: 6.3)
Bottom Line: Relatively expensive and unable to produce a fine grind.
Stefan L (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Heavy duty grinder that gives heavy duty results.
Zack Gill (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: better for espresso than the reviews here indicate, especially when modified, although not without flaws
Paul Hanley (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Potential unrealized. Maybe future revisions will fix the design flaws and poor quality control.
Patti Ratts (quality: 5.9)
Bottom Line: Lovely machine, good value.
Stefan Berggren (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Easy to use, durable and grinds as expected
Tom Lewis (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Industrial strength grinder ! Killer grinder for drip and/or press pot - can do fine espresso grinds too, but not easily
Joel Finkelstein (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Great grinder once you realize grinds only look too big. I only wish it didn't trap so many beans or was easy to clean on a daily basis.
Bob Abbott (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Could be one of the best, if not for beans that lodge.
