Blade Coffee Grinder is rated 4.5946 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grinder! 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Starting breaking after a few uses 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I LOVE my Kitchenaid coffee grinder! It is the same great qulity, as all my other KitchenAid products, it does a great job! I like to grind my coffee to a very fine grind, but you can stop grinding, at any grind you like. Fresh ground coffee, brewed in my KitchenAid coffee pot, is wonderful! I love the quality of KitchenAid !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyable to use. I now have fresh, full bodied brewed coffee with great aroma and flavor thanks to my new KitchenAid Blade Coffee Grinder. The ease of use and performance grinds coffee beans quickly. An extra bonus is the style and color! It matches my KitchenAid Mixer, and both together brighten my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in this Style I've had great success with Kitchenaid products over a lifetime, so when I needed to replace my old coffee grinder, I decided to spend a little extra and avoid the cheaper traditional units. Wow! Every part of this machine lives up to the Kitchenaid design — it's as though the team that designed this actually used other grinders to see what needed to be improved. Great job! Just one thing; you have to read and follow the instructions. Although it's a coffee mill, it works quite differently; no pulsing, for one thing. Read the tips, rinse it out every day, and you'll love this machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken bottom on grinding cup. This would be a great grinder if there wasn't so much cheap plastic stuff on it. When you open the box it feels heavy and you'd think with a name like Kitchen Aid that was once synonymous with quality that it would last lifetimes, just like their mixers do. Alas, I've had this thing for less than a year and the plastic base/cup that screws the grinding cup onto the motor base has chipped off and fallen apart. I'm a pretty gentle user, and I only grind coffee maybe once a week, so it's not like it's undergoing heavy use here. Now the grinding cup can't be secured to the motor and this thing is little more than a loud expensive paperweight just taking up space in my kitchen. I am really disappointed with Kitchen Aid on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Mighty Kitchenaid Blade Coffee Grinder is a breeze to use. Very fast, easy to use and clear top allows you to visually grind coffee to your desired coarseness. Once coffee is ground the holder is removable so it makes dumping coffee grinds into a holder, jar or coffee filter easy, this feature also makes it easy to clean if you are using it to grind different flavored beans. The grinder is small so it doesn't take up a lot of counter space and very powerful so it doesn't take long to get a consistent grind.
