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...
Good Cup of Coffee........ But Buyer Beware (5 Stars on Making Coffee, 3 Stars on Machine)

Summary: First off this coffee pot makes a wonderful cup of coffee. I have had a Cuisinart gring and brew for years. Finally when mine went out (after about 4 years of use) I decided to look for another grind / brew coffee pot.
Summary: We love the taste of the coffee that this machine brews but you definitely need to keep your warranty. After about one year the machine would no longer brew a cup of coffee. The problem seemed to be electrical although it would still grind.
Summary: This is my second Grind and Brew, the first lasted about 18 months until the heating element stopped working. Both my wife and I really liked it, and even though we though 18 months was a pretty short life span for a $150 coffee maker, we decided to purchase another.
Summary: Just got this last week. Be sure you READ the instructions so you don't have a frustrating first attempt like I did. The basket actually must be open for the grinder to operate & the basket slams itself shut automatically when grinding is done.
Summary: I loved this coffee machine hard for three months, then it up and died. The grider just stopped grinding. Do some research before you buy or at least take good care of your warranty information becuase it seems like this is par for the course with this machine.
Summary: After buying other grind and brew coffee makers that start to fall apart after a year this seems to be much heavier in component parts. The coffee is supreme. We look forward to the morning's first cup. This is like having a professional coffee grinder---maker.
Summary: Paid about $120 for my KM7000 in November 2007 and the grinder quit working in January 2009. Used it every day. Doing the math then, the KM7000 cost me about 30¢ per day to own, or about 5¢ per cup. Was it worth it? Absolutely! I went right out and ordered another one.
