Summary: Sadly I have to purchase another one of these because my ex got my first one in the divorce (seriously!) Love... The selectable grind levels, easy clean (in comparison to other auto grind machines), the bean hopper, ability to make a small pot or large pot, the water filter, timer... etc. Only complaint is that you do have to wipe up a few grounds of coffee when it's finished, but I wipe off my counter every morning anyways... So this is not a big deal.
Summary: We recently purchased the Krups KM7000 coffee grinder/maker and could not be happier. We have had 3 Cuisinart units over the past 6 years. It has been about two years since we last purchased one so I started looking for a new replacement. "It appears that the Cuisinart's are only good for a couple years" We really wanted to find something better and easier to use since we make coffee every morning. We were tired of the daily cleaning and taking the Cuisinart apart.
Summary: I was a long time Cuisinart user so I was scared to switch but,now,I am delighted. It makes the best coffee in the whole wide world. The only down side it that it is complicated. I always miss steps like opening the lid for the grinding process. Cuisinart is much easier. Also, Cuisinart parts are easier to clean but this coffee is amazing. I am happy. Thanks!
Summary: So far this has been a very good coffee pot. It brews a very good flavor coffee. This almost as good as Starbucks when using Starbucks coffee beans. I wish that it had an automatic shutoff and a better designed coffee pot. It drips when you get to the last part of the pot.
Summary: I've been using this product for a few weeks now and in general, I am happy with it. It does make good coffee. Also, the conical burr grinder is quiet compared to other coffee grinders I have used and it produces a consistent grind. Futhermore, this coffee maker uses the V-type filters instead of the flat-bottom filters that Cuisinart and Capresso use which gives it an inherent advantage over those 2 products. There are 2 main shortcomings as far as I am concerned.
Summary: This is our 2nd Krups Grind and Brew. Our first one ended up breaking twice - first time was under warranty so we got it fixed but the second time it wasn't under warranty so we just decided to get another one. There's not many choices to choose from with a grind and brew - I think Cusinart is the other brand. I'm not sure why we ended up buying this one again even though it broke two times before.
Summary: It's the best and hottest coffee I have ever had from a home coffee maker. It is not as heavy duty as I would like but that doesn't change the quality of the brew. I had read that it was a little complicated and that is true. Pretty much typical German over-engineering. However, I could still wrap my brain around it, and look forward to that fresh brewed pot when I get up in the morning. The biggest drawback is that I'm now brewing and drinking more coffee.
Summary: I have had this coffeemaker for a couple of months now, and just love it! It makes wonderful coffee, easy to clean, easy to set up. Every cup is the best, there is no guessing, the coffeemaker does it all for you! The only thing that could be improved is the carafe drips horribly, I have to pour my coffee over the sink and when I fill the water, I have to put a towel down to catch the water drips. Otherwise, it is the best maker I have ever had and I have had a few!
