Bottom Line: Extremely dependable, beautiful, great for paperless filter brewers -- I have had mind for 10 years with no parts replaced. <3
R Long (quality: 5.5) 11.24.2003 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Grinder is easy to use.  I don't mind the excess ground coffee on the counter given that the coffee taste is wonderful.  What does rpm really have to do with it if there is no static and the taste is great?
RA Schuppe (quality: 5.8) 01.09.2004 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Good solid, powerful, grinder that works for me (vac-pot & Moka Brew).
Wayne Peterson (quality: 4.5) 12.08.2004 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Bulletproof, well-built, simple and fun machine (if you'll make Eric's modification for espresso).
Attila Horvath (quality: 4.3) 02.13.2006 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: For the price and intended purpose, KitchenAid's KCG200 Retro Burr grinder is definitely adequate, suitable and easy to use.
Aaron Coulter 12.24.2005 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Great ginder!! Solid counstruction and great looks make this the grinder for the long haul!
Rick Strong 10.05.2005 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Solid, reliable, looks cool, stores a pound of coffee, grind is right for drip after performing the mod. At five+ years still works well.
Lance Goffinet (quality: 8.1) 11.11.2003 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: A fantastic grinder for drip, vacuum pot, and french press; does not grind fine enough for espresso.
Wooly Grrl (quality: 3.9) 01.26.2005 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Great machine for someone coming from a whirlyblade, make the mod, make the mod!
Jon Rosenthal (quality: 4.2) 09.10.2004 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Maybe the best grinder anywhere (for Drip and French Press) for the money.
C W (quality: 6.9) 12.25.2003 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Great at grinding for drip brew, but get used to cleaning the chute with toothpicks.
Bob Todrick (quality: 4.3) 04.21.2006 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: A reasonable machine with good quality (KitcheAid usually doesn't make crap) and a fair price.
Kirstin V (quality: 6.6) 11.17.2004 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Looks really cool on the counter & built like a tank but grinds rather unevenly...  good for drip but not so hot for French Press...
Erik Francey (quality: 5.6) 07.06.2004 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Good machine, must be modded to do espresso, no replacement parts???
Ron Eric Edrosa (quality: 6.0) 04.08.2004 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Get your toothpick out to remove leftover grinds...but otherwise a nice sturdy machine.
T. Marsee (quality: 7.0) 08.05.2005 Rating: 7.0

Michael Sparks (quality: 7.0) 08.15.2005 Rating: 6.2

Erik N (quality: 5.8) 08.03.2005 Rating: 6.0
