Great for Entertaining
16 October 2006
Summary: This is great for entertaining. We used to own a small cafe and this was great for coffee and decaf. You can also use one side for hot tea. It is sharp--white and glass. It is very breakable so be careful when storing it. It has ten cups on each pot, which is a lot for everyday home use. Krups make great items and they are reliable. If you have problems (like breaking a pot) they are friendly to deal with.
Summary: I was sorry to see that after ordering two of these duo coffee pots, neither was satisfactory. The coffee filter area will not lock into place, therefore, unless one is extremely careful, your coffee will brew onto your counter top, not into your carafe.
Summary: ... I certainly would. I paid $150 for this machine and it worked a few days past warranty and died. When I called Krups, after emailing and getting the response "call us", I was asked to send the receipt to them, which I did via FAX. No response. I called them back on my won and was told, we are sorry you paid this outrageous sum for a coffeemaker you believed would last you as much as a decade but we're not going to do a thing about it other than keep your money and...
Summary: The Krups 464 is a perfectly competent coffeemaker that doesn't offer any surprises, either good or bad -- unless of course you think you are going to get, ahem, ten cups out of each carafe. CUP SIZE Portion size varies by culture, but here the "10 cup" designation clearly comes from the department of wishful thinking. In a world of super-size mugs, they are still thinking demitasse.
Can I please enter negative stars? Bad, unpleasant unit

Summary: I had high hopes for the DuoThek solving several problems: 1. I like to brew tea, but it's a bit of a hassle. 2. I like to drink brewed coffee and need a nice coffee pot. 3. When we have company, it's nice to be able to brew more than a few cups at a time. However, this unit suffered from huge design flaws and doesn't meet the excellent quality I've had from all other Krups appliances I've ever owned.
Summary: I've had a krups duothek for 15 years. The only part i've had to replace is the bar that is under the filter basket. (They crack) You can order those through the krups manufacturer. I'm now looking for another duothek because mine has finally worn out. I highly recommend this product.
Summary: I've had a krups duothek for 15 years now. The only part i've had to replace is the bar under the filter basket. (They crack, but you can order them through the krups manufacturer.) I would definately buy another one of these coffee makers. That is why i'm searching online, because mine finally decided to retire and i cannot find this style in the stores near me.
Summary: Filter holder was broken when I received. Was instructed to take it to repair shop. They had to order part, took about 8 weeks to repair. It still does not work properly. Filter holders do not close properly. It makes a terrible noise and often the water does not all run through the filter. Now am told I can ship it back to Krups or return it to the repair center again. Decided not to spend any more time or money on a Krups product.
Summary: Ich habe die dritte Maschine gekauft. Nach langem Gebrauch kommt immer etwas Wasser raus. Leider kann man die Maschine nicht aufschrauben. Sie ist mit Spezialschrauben verschraubt. Auch bei handwerklicher Begabung nichts zu machen. Man muß neu kaufen. Sonst ist die Maschine für den dualen Gebrauch sehr gut. Wenn man Tee und Kaffee gleichzeitig kochen muß- prima.
