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
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?
RA Schuppe (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Good solid, powerful, grinder that works for me (vac-pot & Moka Brew).
Wayne Peterson (quality: 4.5)
Bottom Line: Bulletproof, well-built, simple and fun machine (if you'll make Eric's modification for espresso).
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.
Bottom Line: Great ginder!! Solid counstruction and great looks make this the grinder for the long haul!
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)
Bottom Line: A fantastic grinder for drip, vacuum pot, and french press; 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.
C W (quality: 6.9)
Bottom Line: Great at grinding for drip brew, but get used to cleaning the chute with toothpicks.
Bob Todrick (quality: 4.3)
Bottom Line: A reasonable machine with good quality (KitcheAid usually doesn't make crap) and a fair price.
Kirstin V (quality: 6.6)
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)
Bottom Line: Good machine, must be modded to do espresso, no replacement parts???
Ron Eric Edrosa (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Get your toothpick out to remove leftover grinds...but otherwise a nice sturdy machine.
T. Marsee (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Nice design, solid, but won't grind fine enough for my use
Lin Carol (quality: 4.7)
Bottom Line: "Don't waste your money on this piece of junk."
Jeanie Parsons (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: If you love bean flingling, this grinder is for you!
Michael Sparks (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Looks cool, but doesn't work worth a darn
Erik N (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Bottom line, stay away from this machine.
