I've had this grinder for about 9 months now. I use it almost every day, and it's still going strong! It works great. I like strong coffee, so it's great that it has a higher capacity than most other grinders I've used in the past. I can grind enough beans for a nice, strong pot of coffee in one shot!The only thing that I'm not crazy about is that some of the ground coffee gets stuck in the bottom, below the level of the blade. It's not hard to remove it or anything, just use a spoon or something to loosen it. But it would be just about perfect if all of the ground coffee came out without any getting stuck.Even so, I would still recommend this coffee grinder. I've been through a few of them, and this one is the best I've tried so far!

This coffee grinder has a plastic piece on the bottom of the stainless steel bowl. After only a month or two of using it there were pieces breaking off this black plastic piece at the bottom of the bowl.I can barely use it anymore, and would never buy this coffee grinder again. I thought buying Kitchen Aid I was getting a good product, much to my dismay.Like I said, I would never buy it again.

It is fabulous !
from Columbus, Nebraska
I bought this before the holidays because the kids will be home and we would be doing a lot of coffee drinking. It did a fantastic job grinding up all those beans !
Stopped Working after Just Under Two Dozen Uses
from Orlando, Fl
Bought this grinder just after Thanksgiving in 2015. This unit has been used less than two dozen times to grind spices and coffee only. Today I went to grind coffee and the grinder does not work. The motor runs but the blade does not turn. Upon further inspection as to why the grinder is not working, I found that the cheap rubber material teeth that contact the METAL bar that fits between them to turn the blade to grind have worn off and will not maintain contact with the bar. If I could've rated this unit with zero stars I would have mImam quite disappointed that the unit, at this price point, only lasted a year and is just outside the manufacturers' warranty. Sadly Kitchenaid used to sell quality large and small appliances it appears from this experience that is no longer the case.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great appliance, but...
By TO Dad
from El Dorado County, CA
Best grinder I've ever used. As a guy who really needs to measure any items relating to food, the cup tick marks on the bowl are much appreciated and have delivered accurate measurements to assure good coffee reliably. But... the plastic at the base of the steel bowl has broken twice now, for 2 different users (wife and I) with no rough handling. The first time I was able to superglue the piece back on and that worked fine. Today the plastic broke at an entirely different spot and into many pieces. I'll replace the part and keep using the grinder, but it's a disappointing weak spot apparently. Hence only 4 stars.
Great buy for the money!
By Morning java
Just used my new blade grinder this morning for the first time, and I'm happy that I purchased it! While this isn't a $400 burr grinder at all, I'm impressed for the price point! If you carefully watch what you're doing with it, you can actually get a good grind with it. Seems to have plenty of power with a full grinding cup, but I've found that I get better consistency with about half of a load. I just had to experiment a little with it.
Easy of use
from Roseville, CA
Never used a Coffee Grinder before; the Blade was so easy to use and does a great job. I really like the ability to count off the seconds as it grinds and immediately pour the grounds into the coffee maker.
from Lepanto, FL
Prefer grinding my coffee beans instead of using already ground coffee. My last grinder finally died after 10 years. This replacement is great; works smoothly, and quietly. The removable stainless steel insert is easy to clean. Very nice looking as well.
We like it.

This grinder does a good job; plenty of power; little or no mess.

Was a good, solid grinder, until ...
from Edmonton, AB
This grinder seems much more solid than a similar model by Cuisinart. However, after using for about four months the base of the grinder cup suddenly failed where the base clips into the motor housing. All of the clip inserts broke off the cup base meaning that only the lid was left holding the cup down onto the motor gear. Not sure if we will replace the unit or just go with a different brand.
Love it but.....
By Jan from the desert
from St George, UT
I have had several different coffee grinders but I have to say I love this one the best, or at least I did until the base of the stainless coffee bowl lost a piece when I was attaching it. I have had this grinder for about 4 years. I love how fast it is, noise level is acceptable, and cleanup a breeze. However, when I went to attach the bowl to the base a piece of plastic that helps secure the bowl for grinding broke out. I would like to replace the bowl but can't find where to get one. Help!
