KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
Paul Hanley (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Potential unrealized. Maybe future revisions will fix the design flaws and poor quality control.
Mark Shusted (quality: 2.1)
Bottom Line: Beans don't burn but motor does.
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!
Stefan Berggren (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Easy to use, durable and grinds as expected
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.
Doug Dollahan (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Aesthetic, heavy duty, easy to use, great support...worth every penny!
Troy Bash (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Don't listen to the negative reviews, this is a great grinder!!!
Alan Bryant (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: Attractive, well-built machine that will satisfy some, but probably not espresso "power users."
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.

Bottom Line: Missed potential for a few dollars in parts
