How to Use the Burr Grinder

Using the KitchenAid Burr Grinder

  1. Select Grind Size: Refer to the Brew method icons on the machine. Rotate the Grind size knob to select a grind size within the brew method range you are using. The selected grind size will be shown on the display.
    NOTE: As grind size number increases, the actual grind size decreases (1 is Coarse, and 70 is fine).
    TIP: If Grind size knob is hard to rotate, run the machine while adjusting the size to remove any coffee grounds caught between the burrs.
