Excerpt: Wow! The KitchenAid 14 cup architect coffee maker is simply stunning and amazing. First of all it looks amazing with my stainless steel appliances. It is really prefect. I also love that it makes so many cups of coffee. 14 cups is a lot of cups!
Pros: Brews Quickly, Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Large Pot, Multiple Settings, Stylish
Summary: This is model number KCM222CU. The model number of the unit I thought I was getting is KCM1402CU. The Kitchenaid web site will bring up a manual and a parts list for the 222, but not the product itself. I have had the 1402 for several years and am very happy with it.
Summary: Love it. You fill the water at the sink and able to rinse it out before filling, which is a blessing for me as we have a lot of iron in our water. Just be sure water container is inserted correctly or it won't make coffee. Makes excellent coffee and so far have had no problems.
Summary: This replaced the same unit we bought five years ago which still worked but the carafe was broken. It was almost the same price to buy a whole new maker than just a part. It runs fast and smooth, better than the old one so I guess that one was on its last leg. I like the size and ease of use.
