Summary: This is my first coffee machine so I don't have much to compare it against but I LOVE it! It makes superb, rich coffee that is easily the rival of Starbuck's. The burr grinding works well and only takes a few seconds to grind the necessary amount of beans.
Summary: The Grind-and-Brew works as advertised. It took me a couple tries to get the strength of the coffee to my taste. It's a bit tall for my counter, so I have to pull it out from under the cabinets to fill it with water. Some of the plastic parts don't seem especially durable, but time will tell.
Summary: This coffee maker was a christmas gift so I've had it for about three weeks. I only have a few coffee grounds on the counter (fewer than when I ground them separately). The grinding noise is not too loud for us.
Summary: I received this coffee maker a few months ago and have been on a caffeine buzz ever since. It makes a wonderful "hot" cup of coffee, something that was very important to me, but that other coffee makers didn't do.
Summary: I purchased this looking for the perfect solution of convenience and great coffee, however, didn't end up with either. First- I had the similar problem to several other reviewers. After grinding the coffee, the machine proceeds to SPRAY THE GROUNDS ALL OVER THE COUNTER.
Summary: I bought this item before it was released. the release date got pushed back a couple of time, but I am happy that I wated for it. I have always been happy with Krups products in the past and they delieved again on this product.
Summary: I was so excited when I discovered this coffee maker and read the rave reviews. Unfortunately, the first one I ordered had a problem with its clock which ran fast several minutes to the hour. So, there was no way to use the programming. I returned the item and exchanged it for a second.
Summary: My 4 year old Cusinart stopped working and although it served me well over the years, it was time to find a coffee maker that served "hot" flavorful freshly grounded coffee. My husband bought this coffee maker for me after I researched every grind & brew currently available.
Summary: This machine makes one of the best cups of coffee I have ever had at home. I have owned the machine for six weeks, and have used it daily. This was the fourth coffee maker I purchased since my quest for a great cup of coffee in my own kitchen began several months ago.
Summary: I have had a number of grind and brew coffeemakers, Cusinarts (awful), Melittas (nice), and this one. The KM7000 is, by far, the easiest to clean, which solves the biggest problem with this type of appliance. Just remove the filter basket, throw out the filter, rinse, and you're ready to go again.
