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: High on style, not on substance
Jeanie Parsons (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: If you love bean flingling, this grinder is for you!
Jason Ashbaugh (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: Tried to add a metallic flavor to my beans... a definite "don't buy!"
James Lehr (quality: 6.5)
Bottom Line: Stunning countertop art with feet of clay.
Rob Havelt (quality: 6.3)
Bottom Line: Cool looking machine - too bad it doesn't work...
Bob Todrick (quality: 4.3)
Bottom Line: A reasonable machine with good quality (KitcheAid usually doesn't make crap) and a fair price.
C. A. Brooks (quality: 7.6)
Bottom Line: If you like big messy grinders that don't deliver consistency, you gotta try this one ! ! !
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.
Foo Bar (quality: 6.2)
Bottom Line: If you enjoy cleaning coffee grounds spewed in a 3 foot radius, this is the machine for you.
Bottom Line: Great ginder!! Solid counstruction and great looks make this the grinder for the long haul!
Eric Nager (quality: 7.7)
Bottom Line: Not reliable. take a pass on this model.
John Smith (quality: 6.6)
Bottom Line: Loved it for the six weeks I had with it before it broke. They just can't seem to make this model reliable.
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.
Michael Sparks (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Looks cool, but doesn't work worth a darn
T. Marsee (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Nice design, solid, but won't grind fine enough for my use
Erik N (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Bottom line, stay away from this machine.
Marietta VB (quality: 7.2)
Bottom Line: If you like the looks, print off a picture and tape next to you coffee machine - don't actually try to use one of these.
Helen Nickells (quality: 5.6)
Bottom Line: Piece of garbage, don't waste your money
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)
Wooly Grrl (quality: 3.9)
Bottom Line: Great machine for someone coming from a whirlyblade, make the mod, make the mod!
Wayne Peterson (quality: 4.5)
Bottom Line: Bulletproof, well-built, simple and fun machine (if you'll make Eric's modification for espresso).
Gillian Logan (quality: 5.3)
Bottom Line: I had high hopes; sadly still searching for a good grinder under 400 dollars.
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...
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.
Jon Rosenthal (quality: 4.2)
Bottom Line: Maybe the best grinder anywhere (for Drip and French Press) for the money.
Erik Francey (quality: 5.6)
Bottom Line: Good machine, must be modded to do espresso, no replacement parts???
Reed Nelson (quality: 6.2)
Bottom Line: A great looking product with very poor design and performance.
Ron Eric Edrosa (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Get your toothpick out to remove leftover grinds...but otherwise a nice sturdy machine.
Coffee Girl (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Great Looks, very unsatisfactory performance.
Lin Carol (quality: 4.7)
Bottom Line: "Don't waste your money on this piece of junk."
RA Schuppe (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Good solid, powerful, grinder that works for me (vac-pot & Moka Brew).
C W (quality: 6.9)
Bottom Line: Great at grinding for drip brew, but get used to cleaning the chute with toothpicks.
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?
Lance Goffinet (quality: 8.1)
Bottom Line: A fantastic grinder for drip, vacuum pot, and french press; does not grind fine enough for espresso.
