I recommend that you only buy a professional quality burr grinder.
Lou. S
The manual clearly states that you must adjust the range of grind sizes to get very, very fine or course.

It's a well made, heavy duty product that is solid and looks to last a long time.

I chucked my old burr grinder in favor of something more substantial, and the KitchenAid steps up to the plate.

A couple of cons:
1) It is big. It comes close to the size of my coffee maker in terms of space. Fortunately, I have a big kitchen.
2) No automatic off. Simple Off/On toggle on the side.

Many Pros:
1) Again, substantial glass and metal presentation. You get what you pay for. Did it ever occur to you all the old metal and glass mixers and appliances in grandma's kitchen that have been beaten within an inch of their life, but still work after all these years? Invest in something that's made to last, period. I wanted an anti-static glass coffee receptacle (I can't stand when the ground coffee flies all over the counter from a plastic container), and a metal appliance. Great presence on the countertop. Beam me up scotty.
2) Well constructed. Really not much to assemble, and the unit fits together well, unlike its plastic cousins. I like the way that the ground coffee falls 180 degrees downward from the grinder. Previous burr grinders that I've owned tend to have the hopper on top, grinder in the middle, and then will spit the ground coffee out at a 90 degree angle from the grinder. This creates pockets where ground coffee tends to gum up the mechanism (especially if you're using an oily bean). This design, although big in size, uses gravity to move the ground coffee through.
3) Quieter than a number of other burr grinders that I've owned. (a bonus for quelling caffeine-withdrawal headache issues in the AM)
4) Pretty uniform ground size. I'm not making espresso with this grinder, so I can't report how finely it grinds, but as a new owner, I'm in the process of titrating the perfect grind size for my metal cone filter.

This is an excellent coffee grinder. It has a powerful, yet quiet motor and the grind selection dial is robust. The straight, vertical path of beans through the grinder makes it very trouble free. The only downsides are it is big, heavy and takes up a fair amount of counter space. This is a serious grinder, but it makes seriously good coffee.

I like this grinder. It is very reliable, quiet and doesn't generate too many fines or dust. Most other grinders on the market are made of plastic, are noisy and have tiny burrs that spin at high speed creating lots of fines in the grind, overheats the beans and easily jam up. This grinder has large burrs that rotate at very low rpm which greatly increases burr life, reduces noise, does not overheat the beans, produces fewer fines and is much less likely to jam. According to Kitchenaid the burrs will grind 600 - 800 lbs of coffee before they are worn out and need to be replaced.

I never had issues with the glass breakage like other people. However, I recommend you jiggle the jar that catches the grinds before pulling it away because sometimes grounds cling to the plastic flange over the jar and will fall down once the jar is removed.

As for the negative points. The grinder is only available in one color now.... Black. You can't buy white colored grinder to match your white mixer. Second. I was expecting this grinder to be American made since the mixers are still made in America. This grinder has also has premium price that suggests non 3rd world labor was used to build it. However, this grinder is made in China. Premium price, but not premium labor.

I've had this grinder now for just a week, but I have to say so far I'm very happy with it. I've had several grinders over the years, starting with various $20 spinning-blade units. For a few years I used the Braun 3045, but it died two or three years ago, don't remember why. I replaced that with the Saeco Titan, but a couple of weeks ago the gears in that one snapped. I decided to get this KitchenAid hoping that it would be a little more durable than the last two. It's not that much more money -- right now Amazon doesn't have the lowest price, you can get it for $165 or so if you shop around.

Generally, I'm not super-fussy about coffee, and I don't do espresso, but I do like being able to make grounds for drip and for french press. This grinder seems to do both quite well, although I will say that, as shipped, a medium grind was pretty coarse, and the finest grind was no where near fine enough for espresso. I did adjust it to the fine side; this really is straightforward to do, you just need an Allen wrench.

One note: Before I received the grinder, I really had some trouble picturing how the glass bin fit into the base. But really it is just a glass cup that is just as tall as the space under the mill; it just slides under with a tiny amount of clearance. The mill spits the coffee out in a steady stream and it piles up on the bottom of the cup. I will say that the shape of the cup makes it kind of hard to scoop the grounds out with a coffee measure, and the diameter of the top makes it kind of hard to pour the coffee into a measure without spilling it a bit. But you could put anything under there -- a measuring cup, say -- and it would work fine. Obviously nothing else would look as good as the provided cup, though.
