KitchenAid's redesign of a 1930s style coffee grinder, suitable for espresso to press pot.
Bottom Line: Extremely dependable, beautiful, great for paperless filter brewers -- I have had mind for 10 years with no parts replaced. <3
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.
Bottom Line: High on style, not on substance
Bottom Line: Great ginder!! Solid counstruction and great looks make this the grinder for the long haul!
Keith McCandlish (quality: 2.5)
Bottom Line: Great idea, good looks but a lack of customer service makes this a risky purchase and it does not grind fine enough for espresso.
Wooly Grrl (quality: 3.9)
Bottom Line: Great machine for someone coming from a whirlyblade, make the mod, make the mod!
Jon Rosenthal (quality: 4.2)
Bottom Line: Maybe the best grinder anywhere (for Drip and French Press) for the money.
Attila Horvath (quality: 4.3)
Bottom Line: For the price and intended purpose, KitchenAid's KCG200 Retro Burr grinder is definitely adequate, suitable and easy to use.
Bob Todrick (quality: 4.3)
Bottom Line: A reasonable machine with good quality (KitcheAid usually doesn't make crap) and a fair price.
Wayne Peterson (quality: 4.5)
Bottom Line: Bulletproof, well-built, simple and fun machine (if you'll make Eric's modification for espresso).
Lin Carol (quality: 4.7)
Bottom Line: "Don't waste your money on this piece of junk."
Coffee Girl (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Great Looks, very unsatisfactory performance.
Gillian Logan (quality: 5.3)
Bottom Line: I had high hopes; sadly still searching for a good grinder under 400 dollars.
R Long (quality: 5.5)
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?
Erik Francey (quality: 5.6)
Bottom Line: Good machine, must be modded to do espresso, no replacement parts???
Helen Nickells (quality: 5.6)
Bottom Line: Piece of garbage, don't waste your money
RA Schuppe (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Good solid, powerful, grinder that works for me (vac-pot & Moka Brew).
Erik N (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Bottom line, stay away from this machine.
Purple Pig (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: I don't like it ( was - Good burr grinder for under $100. Good looks, no plastic and easy to clean)
Ron Eric Edrosa (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Get your toothpick out to remove leftover grinds...but otherwise a nice sturdy machine.
