I tried the KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire Red (BCG111ER) and why you need one too.

By our senior writer: Elizabeth Wade

I've been waiting to write this article for a long time. But today I actually get to review the KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire! I, Elizabeth Wade, write about coffee machines for a living as a writer, blogger and reviewer and you have probably read my pieces about the 4 Piece Stainless Steel Kitchen Package With B26FT80SNS 36 French Door Refrigerator NGM5055UC 30 Gas Cooktop HBN5451UC 27 Single Wall Oven and SHXN8U55UC 24 Built In Dishwasher by Bosch and the DeLonghi America ECAM28465M Prima Donna Fully Automatic Espresso Machine with Lattecrema System by DeLonghi. I also did an editorial piece on the ELK ELK-TRG2440 Low-Voltage Heavy-Duty 24V AC Power Supply / Transformer. Needless to say, I have quite some experience testing coffee machines and I only want the best to my readers of course. So I was really thrilled when I got this coffee machine to write about today!

Introduction

I am really happy to finally be reviewing the KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire and writing1 this review for you guys for I've been using KitchenAid coffee machines for over 8 years now and I was really excited when I found out they came out with the KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire. Of course I looked where I can get it the cheapest, and I always find it on this website. This time it was the deal from Amazon (The deal can be bought here.) and I saw it was the best deal on the internet. So I didn't think twice and and ordered it there. Luckily for me at Amazon they had same day delivery and free shipping so I didn't have to wait long for my package to arive. When it did, I couldn't wait to open it and finally see my brand spanking new KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire. I immediately saw it had totally been worth the wait. On the chance of sounding quite a bit biassed being a longtime KitchenAid fan, this coffee machine really crushes its competitors, which you can feel immediately when opening the package. I feel like I know enough about the KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire to write this review after testing it for a couple of days now. So keep reading and I will show you why I am so happy with my new KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire.

Summary

I always start my reviews about coffee machines with a summary, then a clear list of the pros and cons after which I'll give my rating and conclusion. So as you may have understood from the intro, I am blown away by the KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire. KitchenAid has really outdone itself on this one. The quality is great, and frankly; it just looks awesome. I know aesthetics aren't everything with coffee machines, but it just needs to be said. Of course the price I got at Amazon was and is unbeatable so make sure to check them out when you decide to buy one yourself. As I have tried many alternatives before, I really got to say they are no match for the KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire. Just the functionalities alone beats all competitors and the durability also seems to be top notch. The customer service of KitchenAid2 is famous for being really generous so if you ever run in to any kind of problem with their coffee machines they're always really lenient with finding a solution. Long story short; not much negative to say about the KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire Red (BCG111ER) really. Make sure to read to the end tho because you might be in for a small surprise!

The list of pros of this KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder, Empire is going to be much longer than the conslist and the description3 this site gives already lists them quite well. To quote just an excerpt: "
