  • Page 14: Before First Use

    USING PRO LINE Before First Use Before using the coffee mill, wipe the motor housing and cord with a clean damp cloth. Wash the bean hopper, hopper lid, and coffee bin in hot soapy water, then rinse and dry. The bean hopper, hopper lid, and coffee bin can also be washed in the top rack of a dishwasher.

  • Page 18 Using a ⁄ -inch allen wrench or hex-head screwdriver, remove the screw located in the front of the grind control dial by turning it counter-clockwise. Hold the grind control dial so that it does not rotate as the screw is removed. Once the screw is free, remove the grind control dial.
  • Page 19 ADJUSTING CUTTING BURRS Re-attach the grind control dial, making certain the dial indicator points to grind level “8”. NOTE: If the coffee mill produces a grating or “rubbing” sound during use, the burrs have been improperly adjusted. Damage to the burrs will result.
  • Page 20: Coffee Mill Tips

    PRO LINE ™ SERIES BURR COFFEE MILL Select the correct grind for the brew process you are using. 15 grind levels are available in half-step increments from 1 to 8. Level 8 produces a very fine grind perfect for espresso, 4 appropriate for automatic drip coffee makers, and 1 is a coarse grind suited to French Press brewing.
  • Page 21 PRO LINE ™ SERIES BURR COFFEE MILL Ground coffee loses flavor and aroma very quickly. For the best results, grind only as much as you intend to immediately use. To retain freshness, coffee beans should be stored in an airtight container and kept in a cool, dark place.
  • Page 22: How The Grind Affects Flavor

    GRIND HOW THE AFFECTS The flavor of coffee depends on a variety of factors, including the quality, freshness, and roast of the beans, the purity of the brew water, the cleanliness of the brewing equipment, and the brewing temperature. The fineness and consistency of the grind is also critical.
  • Page 23 Coffee grind quality is directly related to the type of grinder used. High speed grinders with small burr sets are usually not able to produce the fineness or consistency required for the best espresso. They also excessively heat the beans while grinding, resulting in lost flavor and aroma.

  • Page 25 CARE CLEANING Cleaning the Motor Housing and Hoppers • Make sure the coffee mill is switched off and unplugged before cleaning. • Do not immerse the motor housing in water. • Never immerse the cutting burrs, burr-shaft assembly, or face-plate assembly in water. Keep them dry at all times.
  • Page 26: Cleaning The Cutting Burrs

    Cleaning the Cutting Burrs If the mill is used frequently, the cutting burrs need to be cleaned every few weeks for best performance. Cleaning enables the burrs to achieve the finest, most consistent grinds possible – which is especially important when grinding coffee for espresso.
  • Page 27 CARE Carefully slide the faceplate assembly away from the motor housing. A separate burr-shaft assembly on the inside of the motor housing will usually slide out with the face plate assembly. Place a hand under the burr-shaft assembly to prevent it from falling as the faceplate assembly is removed.
  • Page 28 After cleaning, tilt the grinder backward so the front of the motor housing faces upward. With the corkscrew-shaped auger shaft facing into the motor housing, insert the burr-shaft assembly into the grinder. Keep the burr-shaft assembly level, so the tip of the auger shaft will line up with the small socket in the motor housing.
  • Page 29: Care And Cleaning

    CARE Place the faceplate assembly onto the motor housing. Make sure the numbers on grind level ring are positioned across the top of the assembly. Using your fingers, tighten the faceplate screws by turning them clockwise. Alternate tightening the screws, keeping them even – do not completely tighten one screw before tightening the other.
  • Page 30: Replacing

    If the cutting burrs are damaged, or have reached the end of their life (usually after grinding 600–800 lbs. of coffee), they can be replaced easily. Contact KitchenAid at 1-800-541-6390 to order a set of replacement burrs. To replace the burrs: Remove the faceplate and burr-shaft assemblies.
