Burr Grinder Features
Motor Housing
Die-cast metal housing is stable,
durable, and easy to clean.
Large 5.72 cm diameter flat cutting
burrs provide long life and superb
grind consistency. Burrs can be
adjusted to compensate for wear, or
calibrated to meet stringent grindsize specifications for espresso and
French Press grinds.
Bean Hopper
198 g capacity bean hopper
unscrews from the motor housing for
simple cleaning. Press-fit hopper lid
makes for quick and easy filling.
Hopper and lid are dishwasher-safe
(top rack only).
Low-RPM Operation
A special DC motor and gear
reduction system slows the rotation
of the cutting burrs, minimizing the
frictional heating of the grinds and
preserving coffee flavor and aroma.
The low rpm operation also reduces
the static charge – and “cling” – of
coffee grinds.
Coffee Bin
Coffee bin is glass to minimize the
static “cling” of coffee grinds. Bin is
dishwasher-safe (top rack only).
Bin Platform
Platform pad seats the coffee bin
under the grinding spout.
Power Cord with Tie
Bin Seal Plate
Round cord has no grind-trapping
seams; the tie can be used to bundle
any excess.
Plate helps position the coffee bin
under the grinding spout and
prevents coffee grinds from escaping.
One-Piece Metal Base with
No-Slip Rubber Feet
Grind Control Dial
Large, easy-to-use dial selects one of
15 grind levels in half-step
increments from 1 to 8.
Metal base provides a stable platform
for the grinder. Rubber feet dampen
noise and vibration, and help protect
the countertop.
Grind Level Ring
Burr Cleaning Brush
Metal ring displays grind levels 1
(coarse) through 8 (fine).
On/Off Switch
Dense bristles sweep grinds from the
cutting burrs quickly and easily.
Switch “I” to grind, “O” to stop.
Coffee Scoop
Faceplate Assembly & Screws
One level scoop holds 7 g of coffee,
just the right amount for a single cup
(30 ml) of espresso.
Assembly includes the grind control
dial and grind level ring. Two
faceplate screws attach the
faceplate assembly to the motor
housing. Loosen the screws and
remove the faceplate assembly to
access the burrs.

holds 198 g of beans.
NOTE: This product is intended to
grind whole coffee beans only.
Before First Use
English
Before using the burr grinder, 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.
WARNING
Operating the Burr Grinder
1. Make certain the burr grinder is
unplugged. Attach the bean
hopper to the top of the motor
housing by turning the hopper
clockwise until snug.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Failure to follow these
instructions can result in
death, fire or electrical shock.
4. Place the hopper lid onto
the hopper.
5. Plug into a grounded outlet. The
tie provided on the power cord
can be used to bundle any
excess cord.
2. Slide the coffee bin onto the bin
platform; the bin seal plate on the
motor housing will compress
slightly to accommodate the bin.
Make certain the bin is centered in
the middle of the bin platform.

8. When the desired amount of
coffee has been ground, flip
the “O/I” Switch to the “O”
position, remove the coffee
container, and scoop out the
ground coffee.
NOTE: Because partially ground
coffee beans may remain between
the burrs after the burr grinder is
turned off, selecting a finer grind
may be easier when the burr grinder
is running.

Adjusting the Cutting Burrs
English
From the factory, the Artisan™ Burr
Grinder will provide grinds suitable
for almost all types of brewing. If
you’re an espresso or French Press
aficionado, however, you may wish to
adjust the cutting burrs to provide
optimum performance for your style
of brewing. With adjustment, the
Artisan™ Burr Grinder will easily meet
stringent grind-size specifications for
espresso (250 micron grind size) or
French Press brewing (1500 micron
grind size).
3. Rotate the grind control gear
counter-clockwise 1 “click” or
detent at a time until the
“clicking” sound diminishes and
the gear offers little resistance to
being turned.
Adjusting to Provide
Coarser Grinds
When the grinder is adjusted to
provide coarser grinds, grind sizes will
increase throughout the grinding
range and the finest level may become
too coarse for espresso. (To re-calibrate
the grinder for maximum fineness, see
page 11.)
1. Turn the grind control dial to
level “1”.
2. Using a 4 mm wrench, remove
the screw located in the front of
the grind control dial by turning
it counter-clockwise. Once the
screw is free, remove the grind
control dial. The white grind
control gear should be visible
once the dial is removed.
4. Re-attach the grind control dial,
making certain the dial indicator
points to level “1”.
10
Adjusting the Cutting Burrs
5. Rotate the grind control gear
clockwise 1 “click” or detent at a
time until you hear the burrs
touching one another – when they
touch, the burrs will make a distinct
“rubbing” or grating sound.
Adjusting for Maximum
Grind Fineness
English
Adjusting the grinder to provide
maximum fineness will slightly decrease
the grind sizes throughout the grinding
range. (To adjust the unit to provide
coarser grinds, see page 10.)
1. Empty the bean hopper, then
run the grinder a few seconds to
clear any remaining beans from
the machine.
2. Turn the grind control dial to
level “8”.
3. Using a 4 mm wrench, 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.
The white grind control gear should
be visible once the grind control dial
is removed.
6. When the burrs are touching,
turn the grind control gear
counter-clockwise 1 “click” or
detent. The grating or “rubbing”
sound will stop. Turn off the
grinder by flipping the “O/I”
Switch to the “O” position. The
grinder is now calibrated to
provide maximum fineness.
7. Re-attach the grind control dial,
making certain the dial indicator
points to grind level “8”.
NOTE: If the burr grinder produces a
grating or “rubbing” sound during
use, the burrs have been improperly
adjusted. Damage to the burrs will
result. Readjust the burrs
immediately.
4. Turn on the unit
by flipping the
“O/I” Switch to the “I” position.

Burr Grinder Tips
English
1. Select the correct
grind for the
brew process you
are using. 15
grind levels are
available in halfstep increments
from 1 to 8. Level 8 produces a
very fine grind perfect for
espresso, 41⁄2 to 6 are medium
grinds appropriate for automatic
drip coffee makers, and 1 is a
coarse grind suited to French Press
brewing. Experiment – your tastes
may be better served by using a
slightly finer or coarser grind.
2. For standard drip-process coffee,
a good starting point is to use
28 g of coffee
for every 500
ml of brew
water as
measured with
the carafe
(a carafe “cup”
is about 127 ml). Finer grinds
usually require less coffee, but
using too fine a grind will result
in bitter flavor – see “How the
Grind Affects Flavor” on page 13.
If you prefer substantially
weaker-than-average coffee, it’s
best to brew using a normal
amount of ground coffee and
then dilute the result with hot
water. Doing this will maximize
flavor and minimize bitterness.
3. Ground coffee loses flavor and
aroma very quickly. For the best
results, grind only as much as you
intend to immediately use.
4. To retain freshness, coffee beans
should be stored in an airtight
container and kept in a cool, dark
place. It is not recommended that
you store beans in the burr
grinder’s bean hopper for a
prolonged period.
5. Clean the coffee bin and cutting
burrs frequently.
6. Grinding flavored coffee beans
will impart an off-taste to any
other coffee that is ground in the
grinder. If you enjoy flavored
coffee, it’s best to add flavored
syrups or creamers to your coffee
after brewing or dedicate another
grinder for grinding flavored
beans only.
NOTE: The burrs will require more
frequent cleaning when grinding
flavored coffee beans. The burr
grinder is intended for grinding
whole coffee beans only. Do not
grind other food items.
12
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.
Coffee that is ground too fine for
a particular brewing process
– using a fine espresso
grind in a drip coffee
maker, for example – will
result in the brew water
of soluble compounds will be
extracted from each. If the grounds
vary in size, some will be overextracted and some will be underextracted, leading to extremely poor
quality. It’s not surprising that a
precision grind is mandatory for
good espresso, which is brewed with
near-boiling water under 9 bars of
pressure.
Coffee grind quality is directly
related to the type of grinder
used. High speed grinders with
small burr sets are usually not
over-extracting the oils and
aromatic compounds in the
coffee, yielding a brew
that is extremely pungent
and bitter. Conversely,
coffee that is too coarsely ground
for a particular process will result in
the under-extraction of the oils and
essences, resulting in a very thin and
weak flavor. If the correct grind is
used, adding more coffee simply
makes a brew stronger without
making it excessively bitter.
The consistency of the grind is also
an important factor in the flavor of
coffee – and absolutely critical when
making great espresso. If the
grounds are uniform, equal amounts
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.
The Artisan™ Burr Grinder uses a
pair of large, commercial-style cutting
burrs to grind coffee with precision.
Frictional heating is minimized with a
gear reduction system that slows burr
rotation, and uniformity is enhanced
with a helical-gear that transports
beans to the burrs at a controlled
rate. The result is a superb grind that
makes your coffee and espresso the
best it can be.

How the Grind Affects Flavor
Care and Cleaning
2. Using a flat-head screwdriver,
turn the two faceplate screws
counter-clockwise until the
faceplate assembly is free.
(The faceplate screws have
retaining clips that prevent them
from being removed from the
faceplate assembly.)
Cleaning the Motor Housing
and Hoppers
English
• Make sure the burr grinder is
switched to the “O” position 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.
•Do not use abrasive cleansers or
scouring pads.
Wipe the motor housing and cord
with a clean damp cloth. Dry with
a soft cloth.
Wash the coffee bin, bean hopper,
and hopper lid 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.
3. 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. If the burr-shaft assembly
does not slide out with the faceplate assembly, grasp the center
shaft of the burr-shaft assembly
and remove it from the housing.
Cleaning the Cutting Burrs
If the grinder 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.
Foreign objects – like pebbles or
twigs – sometimes find their way into
whole bean coffee. These objects may
cause the grinder to jam. If this
happens, follow the burr-cleaning
procedure to remove the foreign
material.
1. Make sure the grinder is switched
to the “O” position and
unplugged. Remove the coffee bin
and bean hopper from the grinder.

Care and Cleaning
5. After cleaning, tilt the burr grinder
backward so the front of the
motor housing faces upward.
English
4. Using the burr-cleaning brush,
clean the burr mounted on the
burr-shaft assembly and the
burr mounted within the
motor housing.
6. With the corkscrew-shaped auger
shaft facing into the motor
housing, insert the burr-shaft
assembly into the burr 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.
NOTE: Never wash the burrs or
burr-shaft assembly in water. Keep
them dry at all times.
15
Care and Cleaning
7. Once the burr-shaft assembly is
in the motor housing, rotate
the assembly until it falls into
place. When correctly positioned,
the burr-shaft assembly cannot
be rotated.
9. After the faceplate screws have
been finger-tightened, use a
flat-head screwdriver to tighten
them until snug.
10. Place the burr grinder upright. It is
now ready for use.
English
Adjusting The Cutting Burrs
For Wear
The cutting burrs are made of
high-quality stainless steel for
exceptional longevity. After
prolonged use, however, the burrs
might require adjustment to
compensate for wear. If your grinds –
especially espresso – are not as fine
as they used to be, an adjustment
probably needs to be made.
Please see “Adjusting the Cutting
Burrs” on page 11 for information on
adjusting the burrs to provide
maximum grind fineness.
8. Place the faceplate assembly onto
the motor housing. Make sure the
numbers on the 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.
16
Care and Cleaning
3. Remove the burr from the motor
housing by turning the two
burr-mounting screws
counter-clockwise until free.
Replacing the Cutting Burrs
English
If the cutting burrs are damaged, or
have reached the end of their life
(usually after grinding 270–360 kg of
coffee), they can be replaced easily.
Refer to “Service Centers” on page 19
to order a set of replacement burrs.
To Replace the Burrs:
1. Remove the faceplate and burrshaft assemblies. For instructions,
see “Cleaning the Cutting Burrs”
steps 1, 2, and 3 on page 14.
2. With a screwdriver, remove the
burr from the burr-shaft assembly
by turning the two burr-mounting
screws counter-clockwise until free.
4. Attach the replacement burrs to
the burr-shaft assembly and motor
housing using the burr-mounting
screws. Make certain the cutting
surfaces of the burrs face
outward, and the burr-mounting
screws are tight.
5. Insert the burr-shaft assembly into
the motor housing and attach the
faceplate assembly. For
instructions, see “Cleaning the
Cutting Burrs” steps 5–10 on
pages 15 and 16.
17
Troubleshooting Problems
English
If the grinder does not run when
switched on:
Check to see if the burr grinder is
plugged into a grounded outlet. If it
is, unplug the grinder, then plug it
back in again. If the burr grinder still
does not work, check the fuse or
circuit breaker on the electrical circuit
the grinder is connected to and make
sure the circuit is closed. If the grinder
does not run after taking these steps,
a foreign object may be jamming the
cutting burrs. See “Cleaning the
Cutting Burrs” on page 14 for more
information.
If the grinder runs when
switched on, but coffee does
not grind:
The cutting burrs require cleaning or
are worn. See “Cleaning the Cutting
Burrs” on page 14 or “Replacing the
Cutting Burrs” on page 17 for more
information.
If the grinder is operating
normally, but stops abruptly:
Immediately turn off the burr
grinder. A foreign object, such as a
pebble or twig, may have jammed
the cutting burrs. See “Cleaning the
Cutting Burrs” on page 14 for more
information.
If the grind is too coarse, or the
grinder isn’t producing an
acceptable range of grinds:
See “Adjusting the Cutting Burrs” on
page 11 or “Replacing the Cutting
Burrs” on page 17 for more
information.
If the problem cannot be fixed
with the steps above, see the
KitchenAid® Burr Grinder Warranty
on page 19.*
