KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
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.
Mike Wisniewski (quality: 5.3)
Bottom Line: Expensive Grinder for Drip and Press, not worth it for Espresso.
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.
Pascal Diamond (quality: 4.1)
Bottom Line: Great looks, pity it couldn't deliver on the grind.
Patti Ratts (quality: 5.9)
Bottom Line: Lovely machine, good value.
Paul Hanley (quality: 6.0)

Prince Humperdink (quality: 1.7)
Bottom Line: Great quality of construction and production from a machine that provides an exellent value.
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.
Randall Nortman (quality: 8.6)
Bottom Line: A heavy, solidly built piece of counter jewelry that does everything you'd want other than grind coffee well.
Randall T (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: versatile quality grinder suitable for daily use along with a good-looking design without the need for constant maintenance
Richard Abrams (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Acceptable value well made machine which contributes to making Italian coffee bar standard home espresso.
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.
Robert Deason (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Fantastic. Buy one
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!
Roman Beyga (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Great Grinder for the mainstream coffee geek!
Ron Nelson (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Works great for drip coffee! Love it so far!
Ron Taylor (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Outstanding machine for french press and drip coffee grinding!
Bottom Line: Excellent - considering the basket filter drip advantage.
Scott Riedesel (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: A very nice heavy duty grinder with a few hits, but more pluses....
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.
