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.
Summary: I've had this coffee maker for over four months now and absolutely love it. There are very few coffee makers with a built in grinder and after much research decided that this was the best bet - and glad I did. A few comments for those using this/considering it: - Read the manual, and take your time. This machine is not intuitive at first.
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: I am not a coffee drinker but a year ago I decided to get my husband some type of "grind & brew" for Christmas. I had no idea where to start so I came to Amazon and read the reviews on Krups. When the site asked "were these reviews helpful" I thought, absolutely not! It seemed that it was 50/50 on great to horrid. I finally decided to give the Krups a go and I am so thankful that I did.
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.
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: It says "Krups" so you think you are buying German Quality, built like iron. Not. It's made in China. Thin Plastic and no real quality feel. It's a little complicated to set up. It's messy. It drips condensation from some unusual spots and the grinder sprays a small amount of grounds out onto the counter. I'm nit picking. Oh, by the way, IT MAKES THE BEST COFFEE I'VE HAD IN YEARS.
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.
