Summary: I have disliked this coffee maker since I purchased it almost a year ago. It is complicated to figure out, especially if you're using whole bean coffee and not pre-ground. The gasket came off the bottom of the filter holder the first time I used it and attempting to communicate with Krups was like...

Summary: Makes delicious coffee. Only hickup is that you have to slide the filter tray top open before you hit start, and if you leave it closed the machine will still go through a full cycle, but not with any coffee grinds.
Summary: Have been using this for well over a year and have no complaints. Sometimes I spill the water as I'm filling it, but that's on me. Sometimes the grounds fall on the counter after it grinds (when the top closes) but its usually because I didn't clean off the top first. The machine is great..
Best grind and brew coffee maker on the market with defective parts!

Summary: The Krups design is probably the best grind and brew on the market, far better than the Cuisinart I owned. When it is working it makes a great cup of coffee. BUT!!! For some reason, Krups uses cheap thermal switches that fail randomly.
Summary: This is the second time I have purchased this coffee maker. The first lasted 4 years. Makes the most delicious coffee. My girlfriends rave at how good my coffee is. Make sure you set the filter reminder on the coffee maker and change the filter every 70 brews. Also descale with the seasons.
Summary: I really wanted to love this (mostly because it looks really cool) but it just didn't function (and I really can't begin to understand what they were thinking with the weird coffee grinder swing door function?
Summary: This thing makes some fantastic coffee. The stuff it makes is nearly as good as the drip and pour overs from some of the actually good coffee shops near me. It uses a cone shaped filter and brew basket, which seems to help.
Won't last forever but you'll forgive it because it makes fantastic coffee

Summary: We just bought our 3rd Krups KM7005 Grind and Brew. The first 2 died when the heating element gave out. I do wish Krups could solve this issue. However, there is a 2-year warranty so save the box in case you need to send it in - they will repair or replace it at no charge.
Compromised grinding housing unit: it's plastic! That destroys the integrity of the beans.
19 February 2015
Summary: I haven't had it long enough for it to pass my personal product endurance test (i.e., is it going to break down or not before too long?) but so far it works like it's supposed to. MAJOR COMPLAINT I have is that the grinding housing unit is plastic and not steel.

Summary: Coffee grounds get on top of the drip unit every time you use it and then slip off onto the counter. The top of the brew basket is spring loaded and must be slid to the side for the bean shoot. Grounds get on both sides of the unit. The Capresso was similar but the brew basket moved instead...
