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: Two people in my family had this grinder/coffee maker before me. They loved theirs and now I love mine. This machine only requires that you add water for your cup(s) of coffee. Since I don't share mine, it is set exactly right for me every time. This is the only one of it's type that I know of that lets you set your preferences for coffee exactly right for you. I grind my beans, but you don't have to. You can also use ground coffee.
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. We sent it a away to be fixed under warranty ( the metal came back a little dented). The machine worked for another 6 months and the same thing happened the other day. The machine will no longer brew.
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. The second unit has a major issue with grinding enough beans. The grinding cycle length is set by selecting number of cups and strength.
Summary: I was surprised how "plastic-y" this coffee maker is. The parts make that "plastic" noise when you open and close them...which makes me feel this won't last much more than 1 year. It is a little messy (like other reviewers, I find if you pour too fast, the coffee pot spills), coffee grinds do fly about, but it is sort of all worth it. This coffee maker makes a GREAT cup of coffee.
Summary: My brother wanted a coffee maker for his birthday. I have a Cuisinart which is very hard to clean and very loud when it is grinding the beans. So after doing some research I bought this one and he seems to love it. I've read several things about how the cone shape filter makes a better cup of coffee, so I thought that this model was one of the better ones out there for price.
Summary: I was looking for another coffee maker with a coffee bean grinder combination. I had been using the Cuisinart model for several years. I disliked having to take the machine apart every day and clean each piece in order to make coffee. This Krups model was actually the only other one I could find. Boy, am I glad I did! Everything about this coffee maker is superior. Preparing coffee is much simpler, and the coffee tastes much better. The burr grinder is fantastic.
