Summary: I was skeptical of the grinder contraption at first, but it has worked flawlessly since we purchased ours in March 2008 (6 months ago). Makes excellent coffee. I highly recommend a burr-grinder, which the Krups KM7000 has, which allows the bean to be ground once only, with the grinds falling...
Summary: I was initially excited by this product as it seemed to work pretty well even with the flaws that others have noted in their reviews. We had been through two Capresso Coffee Team grind and brew models that lasted 4 years and 1.5 years respectively, so I thought that an equally reputable manufacturer...
Summary: Best coffee I've ever made at home! It looks great, it's quiet and makes wonderful coffee. It stopped cycling water after 6 months use. Of all the things that could go wrong with a machine like this, the water stopped cycling?!?! I will miss it, but I will not buy another Krups!!
Summary: The grinder failed after a few weeks. The instructions say not to grind "oily beans". My Capresso (also a burr grind-and-brew) worked for 6 years with the same kind of beans, and the grinder still worked fine when the heating element failed.
Summary: As one might guess we are sitting here with a malfunctioning KM7000 two months after an Amazon purchase... outside Amazon's return policy but within Krups warranty. Krups providing lip service thus far instead of repair or replacement.
Summary: When our old Cuisinart Grind and Brew bit the dust (the unit would go dead many times during a brewing cycle and need a restart), I researched the options. Conical burr grinder, many options for brew strengths and quality, etc., convinced me to buy one despite some of the negative reviews.
Summary: There is nothing to dislike about this machine. It solves the problems associated with the Melitta (flimsy construction) and the Cusine Art (insanely intense cleaning requirements). It solves these problems with aplomb and with only a modest increase in price.
Summary: We bought this machine back in November before it was available at retailers. I love this machine as it is so convenient to wake up to coffee that is ground with a burr grinder. It is a bit messy but I don't mind that and we use the noise as our alarm clock.
Summary: We had a Krups Coffee Maker for 15 years and it finally called it "quits." Since we had such a wonderful experience with it, we decided to check Krups for a coffee maker that also ground the beans. I was having to grind each pot before making coffee.
Summary: I've had the same Krups drip coffee maker for 20 years (yes, it still works) and decided it was time to upgrade. After a good deal of research, I settled on the Krups grind and brew and I am glad I did. This is the real deal here folks.
