Summary: Absolutely the best coffepot ever! Bought this upon recommendation of another owner and he was right. This replaced my Melitta Smart brew which made good coffee til the weatherstation suddenly died and the lid would not open to put coffee in. That replaced a Cuisinart Grind and Brew which made OK coffee but would occasionally overflow and spill coffee all over the counter in the morning.
Summary: This coffee maker with the coffee bean grinder makes excellent coffee! We were grinding our coffee and using a press before we purchased this machine. It took a lot of our time to get a good cup of coffee. With this unit we set it up at night and it automatically comes on in the morning and we wake to the smell of great fresh coffee. Absolutely delighted with it!
Summary: It is hands-down the best coffee maker I've had. But my first one broke after 12 months. It stopped heating the water. My second one broke after 18 months. It stopped grinding. Both have been replaced for free because I bought the ~$20 extended warranty. Highly recommended for this unit. Do some Google searches and you'll see that people love this machine, but it will break before 2 years is up.
Best cup of coffee I have had, but very unreliable quality
1 September 2011
Summary: To start with, this makes the best cup of coffee of any coffee maker I have ever owned. The downside is that it is very unreliable in the long term. So far I have purchased one unit where the grinder quit working and one where it just would not brew the coffee. I went to buy another unit which was in an opened box, but before I bought it I asked the seller to try it, the grinder did not work!
Summary: First dislike: does not turn itself off after time, can burn pot Second: does not come with "gold filter", requires paPER FILTERS Third: after sale "gold filter does not truly fit the pot, i cannot swing closed after grinding without manual help.
Summary: My wife and I have used the Krups KM7000 series coffee maker for over a year now and we're both very particular about how our coffee is prepared. This particular maker allows us to prepare the perfect cup every time. Maintenance is key; keep the duo filter changed out as recommended and you will experience the best cup of coffee each and every morning.
Summary: It's so nice to get up in the morning and push one button and get 10 cups of freshly ground coffee.A great selection of options to make the perfect cup of coffee for you.My wife and I love this coffee maker.
