KitchenAid Pro Line Espresso Maker Overview

The KitchenAid Pro Line is designed with 3 things in mind

  • Heavy-duty, durable design that KitchenAid is known for
  • Amazing aesthetics (that candy apple red is just incredible)
  • Proven Nespresso performance

It also has a few other awesome features:

  • Dual boiler for instant switching from brewing to frothing
  • Temp gauges for both your espresso boiler and frothing boiler
  • Warming rack on top with 4-6 cup capacity
  • Hot water dispenser for tea, Americanos, hot cocoa, and more
  • Auto-Standby mode for rapid re-heating for future shots

While the KitchenAid Pro Line technically is a UL Commercial listed model for use in commercial settings, many people choose to use it in their own home.

While easy to use, that ease of use has a few downsides, most notably no temperature control selector.

Pros
  • Dual Independent Boilers to switch from brewing to frothing instantly
  • Adjustable frothing arm swivels horizontally and vertically for convenient use
  • Cup warmer and rail accommodates 4 to 6 espresso cups
  • Large 60 oz water reservoir in compact footprint
  • 5 year warranty
Cons
  • Espresso boiler takes 6 minutes to get up to temp
  • No temperature control

KitchenAid Burr Grinder

KitchenAid Burr Grinder
Overall Rating: 90
A durable, die-cast model, this burr grinder has 15 variable grind sizes and a low-RPM grinder for reduced heat and static for a higher-quality grind. If you want the best KitchenAid coffee grinder, you want this one.

KitchenAid Blade Grinder BCG111
Overall Rating: 80
Blade grinders aren't known for quality of consistency. If that's important to you, check out the KitchenAid Burr Grinder. But if you want something small, inexpensive, reliable, and convenient, check this model out.
About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
