The grinder is quite loud, but more importantly doesn't uniformly grind the beans. The ones at the top are coarse chunks where the ones close to blade are finely ground, which I prefer. The finely ground coffee gets stuck to the bottom under the blades and I believe this is preventing the top beans from getting pulled down to the blades. Even tried shaking it but the coarse pieces remain. I have to take a spoon and clear the bottom, not that it helps with grinding, but just to remove the coffee from the grinder. I am not overfilling it, I have tried with various levels of beans.

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my son who is an executive chef. He was thrilled with the gift and appreciated the kitchen aid brand. He will not be grinding coffee with it, but using it for grinding spices. He said this is one of the best brands for grinding spices. I like the appearance of it - very nice looking. I haven't heard any complaints from him so far, so can't say for sure exactly how well it is working. If he should have issues with the product I will write another review stating the issues.

I was pleased to receive my new Kitchen Aid Coffee Grinder. I ordered the red color and it is stunning!
rich and dark. The instructions are dead easy and the machine itself is well designed so it's a cinch to operate. I especially like that the measuring marks are engraved INSIDE the bean container which, by the way, is made of sturdy steel. Both the container and the cover are dishwasher safe or wash up readily by hand. I use it everyday and recommend it to anyone who loves fresh ground coffee.
