Kitchenaid Coffee Grinder Review

Before jumping into purchasing the Kitchenaid Proline burr grinder, there are a couple of things that you need to know. While it is attractive to the eye, has a sturdy design with various grind adjustments it has some potential flaws that may turn you away.

In this review we will cover as many potential issues as possible and answer some of the top questions about this coffee grinder model.


The build of the unit and sturdy design may allow it to last longer than most models.

There are 15 grind adjustments available from very coarse to fine.

The KitchenAid Pro Line Series Burr Coffee Mill provides a consistent grind with large simple controls and a large coffee carafe.

Manufacturered by a reputable brand.


The body of the grinder is made of sturdy metal, but the coffee carafe is made of thin glass that is easily breakable.

The coffee bean container does not have a handle.

Some beans may not be emptied from the hopper because of its shape.

Kitchenaid Pro Line Series Burr Coffee Mill may be out of your budget.


Since the glass carafe and the hopper are not air tight, flavor loss will occur if the coffee beans or ground coffee sit in them for several hours.\u200b

The grinder does not have a handle for the coffee carafe, which can make it quite difficult to pick up once the beans are done grinding. Unless you have larger hands, you will not be able to grab the carafe with one hand.

A Few Concerns\u200b

It’s Very loud!

The unit produces a loud noise while grinding coffee beans measuring 90 decibels during normal use and 95 decibels when the grinder spins faster as it clears out the final beans.

By comparison, a circular saw measures between 90 and 100 decibels. A back hoe measures 85 to 95 decibels, making this coffee grinder one of the loudest on the market.

Cleaning Is Difficult

Cleaning is required to keep the grinder in good shape. Otherwise you may get either a poor grind or no grind at all. Taking the grinding burrs out of the machine to properly clean them is a time-consuming process.

Another concern is the heavy build of the Kitchenaid Pro Line Series Burr Coffee Mill, which makes it difficult to handle while cleaning.\u200b

The Coffee Carafe Is Delicate

Probably one of the most common issues is the breaking of the coffee carafe. It is made of thin glass and needs to be handled with extreme care.

Luckily, Kitchenaid allows users to buy replacements in the event that this happens. Here is a link to the Carafe.
