KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
Don Scott (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Awesome grinder for french press or drip, But does not work for Espresso
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 ;)
Bob Abbott (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Could be one of the best, if not for beans that lodge.
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.
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
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
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!
Bottom Line: Excellent - considering the basket filter drip advantage.
Matt Lehman (quality: 5.2)
Bottom Line: Great product. Worth the price.
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.
John Poros (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Solidly built, but not geared toward espresso.
Andy Andrews (quality: 4.0)

Ellem Weaman (quality: 4.0)

Stefan Berggren (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Easy to use, durable and grinds as expected

Bottom Line: better for espresso than the reviews here indicate, especially when modified, although not without flaws
Richard Abrams (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Acceptable value well made machine which contributes to making Italian coffee bar standard home espresso.
Ron Nelson (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Works great for drip coffee! Love it so far!
Scott Riedesel (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: A very nice heavy duty grinder with a few hits, but more pluses....
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.
Leonard Wells (quality: 6.8)
