Summary: I received this at the end of August/beginning of September 2009. It stopped brewing all of a sudden in the middle of October 2009. I wish I had seen that so many others have experienced the same problem. As it is too difficult to return this to the service center, and because I am not convinced I will not be sent another defective machine, it will end up in the trash after I buy another coffee maker. Too bad. I was a loyal Krups customer until now.
Summary: The krups coffee maker with burr grinder performed perfectly for one month. The coffee maker made a perfect pot of coffee. It was easy to use and I loved it. One morning the coffee ground and the water did not go throught the pot. I hope this was not normal for this machine. I loved it.
Summary: I've had this macine since the middle of August 2009. It is now October 2009 and I have found no issues with it. We love the taste of strong coffee..The middle setting is just right. To remove the top of the cafare, you just take it off..and it snaps back in when you want.
Summary: Starting the work day off is a 7 days a week task, I insist on a quality cup of coffee an this although a bit complacated ,at first, is certainly worth the effort,to learn to set up.Worthevery penny, an in these times we must count those also!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: Although we love strong coffee, the settings on this brewer are too strong. I currently have the settings on the weakest setting and I must add more water than the cup setting calls for.The carafe is fine, but I am unable to remove the top to wash it in the dishwasher. The manual is of no help.
Summary: I've owned 3 other Grind n Brew varieties from Cuisinart including the DGB-600 thermal one. This one from Krups beats them hands down. Easier to clean, uses less coffee, coffee is hotter, and more user friendly and customizable and NO MORE MEASURING BEANS!! I've noticed a huge difference in taste with the burr grinder in this machine rather than the blade grinder in my previous coffee makers.
Summary: Works flawlessly - makes a great cup of coffee. Coffee is the hottest I have ever encountered in any machine. I only wish it would grind a little finer - seems really coarse even on fine setting. Timer and electronics are very easy to master and use. A really fine product.
Summary: I received my Krups KM7000 Grind-and-Brew 10-Cup Coffeemaker last week and it is truly a wonderful coffee maker. Great coffee and easy clean up.If you want a really good coffee grinder/maker this is the one to buy!
Summary: I bought the Krups KM7000 Grind-and-Brew a couple of days ago so this is reviewed on only a few uses. I had the same Cuisinart Grind & Brew for 8 years and though it was a pretty decent coffee maker, I started noticing the years of wear & tear effecting the coffee flavor and it was not as hot as it once use to be. As others have stated, the maintenance/clean up on this particular coffee maker is tedious.
