    Great coffee grinder

    Works as intended, easy to use. The plastic lid has some grooves that could hold coffee grindes, but it still wasn't that hard to clean. The Grinding blade has a metal key that locks onto the cogwheel which is great as my previous grinder had a plastic key which wore out. Locking the cup in place was a breeze and the consistence of the grind was good.

    Uneven grind

    While I like the idea of being to take everything apart for cleaning this grinder did not provide even grinding. The design did not lend itself to being able to shake for more even grinding. It would be powder on the bottom and large grind on top. Returned.

    Strong, works good, reliable. Wish it had more features. You grind by timing it. I'd rather flip a switch for coffee or espresso grounds. I have to lift the lid to check the ground size. Only takes 30 seconds for ground beans. Very easy to use.

    Bought this one the day my older less expensive coffee grinder died. I went to the store and found this one. Far better than my old ones that stop short--usually before the last coffee is ground. The Kitchen Aid grinder is also very effective and fast for grinding spices. Grinder cup is remove able and very easy to use and clean. A very good buy.

    Does not grind uniform

    The grind is not uniform. Would not recommend if you are looking for uniformity in your grind.. It does grind the coffee and it is usable. I'm sure there are better products that will have a uniform grind, all be it, they will cost more than this product

    I love the little Kitchen Aid coffee grinder. We keep it on the counter next to the coffee maker. It takes up only a few inches and is so convenient that we are changing up our flavors of coffee more often because it is easy to grind just enough for one pot. We love it.

    Bought this to replace my failing grinder. Love that it grinds at a quick speed effortlessly. Only complaint I have is that you can't put too many beans in it or you have to keep pulsing to get it finer. Great item, would recommend!

    Cheap grinder, but don't grind for too long

    The price was right on this grinder. First of all, the container is removable. That makes it really easy to clean. Most grinders at this price range don't have that feature. However, with all grinders of this type, you can't grind for too long or the beans will burn. So pay attention to that.

    There were a few options to choose grinders from and I went ahead and chose this one. Can't complain really. Grinds my coffee. Gets the job done. What else do you really say about a coffee grinder? Go buy one :) If it breaks, I'll update the review.

    Does not produce an even grind

    I like to grind my coffee fresh each morning. In order to get an even grind, you have to shake the grinder to shift the coffee around. I ended up buying a burr grinder and am much happier. I use this one for grinding flaxseed now so at least it has some use!

    Great For Small Volume

    I got this because it says it can handle a larger amount of coffee beans. However, that is not the case as you have to use smaller amounts. The grinder bowl does not sit snugly against the lid, so grinding beans can be a mess at times.

    I used another very good brand of coffee grinder for years, and was satisfied with it. With time for a change, I thought to try this one, and I am glad I did. It is fast, smooth, and the removable grinding cup is genius. Totally pleased.

    We accidentally bought coffee beans and needed s grinder. I was in Best Buy and just happened to see this one as the red stood out(in a good way). Kitchenaid is an excellent brand so I bought. I was not disappointed either. It works great, grinds to the degree I like and is do easy to operate and clean. Buy it!

    Overall, it does what a grinder is suppose to do. I was hoping to get another Cuisinart but they did not have any. I like that one better. The one thing I do like better on the Kitchen Aid grinder is that you can take out the grounded cup holder. Good for pouring.

    Though I haven't used this item yet because of the fact that I rarely drink coffee, I trust the brand wholeheartedly. I've got a Kitchen Aid brand vegetable peeler and without a doubt it is the second best potato peeler that I've ever had even though I haven't used that item yet either.

    This grinder does not work well for a 6 cup quantity of beans. The unit received did not grind well. It creates powder at bottom with rough grind on top. Had to grind longer than my old unit with dull blade. If ground for recommended time all was way too rough to even brew.

    Great blade grinder for the price

    The build quality and grind quality of this grinder is pretty good for a blade grinder. I use a pour over coffee maker and this grinder does a great job, and produces good grounds that aren't too fine or too coarse. Bonus, it looks great as well, so it gets the wife stamp of approval.

    I love the way this looks and I ordered it. But being impatient I went in and bought a grinder they had in store. The grinder I have has a button and grinds by itself. This one needs you to hold it down to grind. I'm sure its nice and works really well but I'm lazy.

    I use these grinders for grinding herbs, flax seed and sugar. Made my powder sugar. Worked well. Didn’t seem as powerful as my other brand, but it did the job. Red is a nice color.

    The grinder did not grind the beans completely. Also difficult to remove the ground coffee. It’s an OK grinder for its price. Also have to fumble to get the lid back on to grind.
