KitchenAid's new Proline grinder, with a straight path for the beans, glass hoppers and catchers, and grind settings from espresso to press pot.
Scott Riedesel (quality: 5.8)

Leonard Wells (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: It's "Beauty is onlySkin Deep". as in Handsome machine, ugly grinds.
Randall T (quality: 5.8)

Doug Dollahan (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Aesthetic, heavy duty, easy to use, great support...worth every penny!
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.
Steve Engelbrecht (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: This is the most beautiful grinder I 've ever seen, but it does have drawbacks.
Adam Reisner (quality: 5.3)
Bottom Line: i expect to be grinding my drip with this for quite some time
Bottom Line: For the price, look elsewhere.
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.
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.
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.
Christopher Boffoli (quality: 7.1)
Bottom Line: Dualit-like industrial design, heavy and durable, most details done right, other major things overlooked. Not bad overall.
Ted O (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Nice Appearance, Feel and Quality.. but Not Really Designed and Built for Espresso Enthusiasts
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.
Tom Bodet (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Nice attempt at a multi purpose grinder but falls a bit short.
Alan Bryant (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: Attractive, well-built machine that will satisfy some, but probably not espresso "power users."
Stefan L (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Heavy duty grinder that gives heavy duty results.
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.
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.
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.
