KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
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.
Tom Bodet (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Nice attempt at a multi purpose grinder but falls a bit short.
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.
Ted O (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Nice Appearance, Feel and Quality.. but Not Really Designed and Built for Espresso Enthusiasts
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.
Bottom Line: For the price, look elsewhere.
