It is worth every penny!

 

This is the first grinder that I've purchased and I spent way too much time shopping for one before I stumbled across the KitchenAid. All the reviews for different grinders seemed to say that any grinder that didn't operate with "conical burrs"...

Great well made product! Heavy duty like machines of the past

 

I spent hours doing research before purchasing this grinder. The more I read, the harder it became to find an affordable, well made grinder that was good for espresso. I roast my own beans & wanted a quality affordable grinder to help finish the...

Excellent Coffie Mill

 

All I have to say is 'Wow'!!! We've been through many coffee mills: blade type and burr grinders. They were just OK, but never very consistent in the grind quality. I did a lot of research before purchasing this one due to the reviews. It's absolutely...

Heavy Duty, Stylish, and Consistent.

Buyer Be Aware

 

Watch out for big variations in grind size at a single setting. For instance, at an 8 setting 50% is espresso(300-400 microns), 30% is medium, and 20% is coarse(1000 microns). This makes it hard to select a setting that will be perfect for a particular...

Dissapointing Grind Consistency

 

Very dissapointed in the consistency of the ggrounds. There is a large variabilty in the size of the grounds for a particular setting. Even on the fine setting, 20% of the grounds are large(.5 millimeter), 50% good for drip, and 30% for expresso.

a keeper

 

The slow grind and glass containers deliver a wonderfully consistent grind every time. Machine is quiet compared to most others. Very sturdy from solid construction. Counter top messes are a thing of the past. One poor design flaw, the glass hopper is...
