Summary: I bought this model because my wife wanted a red one, I wanted a thermal carafe, and I believed reviewer "Ineedcoffee" who said they modified the lip of the carafe so it wouldn't leak. One reviewer wrote that pour if fast, pour it slow, it leaks. My experience confirms that it leaks when pouring fast but if you are patient and pour slowly so as to not exceed the width of the lip, then there is no leaking.
Summary: I've had this coffee pot for a little over a year now. It spills all over my counter every morning. Someday I will buy a new one... Until then, I just keep my paper towels next to it for a quick clean up.
Summary: This is like so many really beautiful things/people -- get by on the looks and don't actually perform. Yes, it does make coffee. The carafe drips -- like most people have said. IF you pour really slowly, you might get by without a drip - but don't count on it. The carafe does not really keep it warm. The heating element stays on after the brew is complete, so you can end up "cooking" your coffee just like in glass makers -- so, you have to remember to turn it off.
Kalorik TKM-17409 900-Watt 8-10-Cup Coffeemaker with Stainless-Steel Carafe, Red (Kitchen)

Summary: Any amount of coffee over 4 cups in the pot and it dribbles down the outside of the pot. This really sucks. It dribbles on the counter, your lap, the floor, your breakfast, anything that is beneath it. I own a tea pot by the same company and it does not have a problem with pouring. Don't buy this coffee pot, it will piss you off every morning first thing. My wife wanted a red one. After two months the heating element burnt out.
Summary: I was disappointed with this product. The assumption was that the Stainless-Steel Carafe would keep the coffee hot. It does not, even when the coffee is freshly made. We have tried numerous positions with the spout on the lid without success in eliminating drips when the coffee is being poured. For these reasons, I would not recommend this model of a Kalorik Coffeemaker.
Summary: I just LOVE my coffee maker. It has such a beautiful red color!! I'm glad I bought it!! It's easy to use. It brightens up my kitchen! No problems yet. I would get the same coffee maker in the future too. I recommend it to all the coffee lovers. The stainless-steel carafe keeps the coffee really warm and drinkable. Thank you for keeping this coffee maker in stock. I love it. Thank you very much. Kathy B.
