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.
Summary: This is a great coffee maker! It is the best I have ever had. It was sold to me as "new", however, there were coffee grounds in the coffeemaker when I went to use it for the first time. So whether it was a demo or used I do not know.
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. Oh, KM7000, it was beautiful but brief.
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. Wish it were a twelve cup with a thermal pot. The pot could be heavier grade of glass and is tricky to pour. Even with those minor problems we are happy with our purchase.
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. This is the best coffee maker I've ever owned, and I've owned a lot.
Summary: There's definitely a learning curve after using the same Grind 'n Brew for 9 years, but once you get the hang of this coffee maker, it's very cool. Pros: - It's WAY easier to clean than my old Grind 'N Brew! Throw the used filter away, rinse out the pot, and voila! You're done! - The coffee is definitely better tasting with the burr grinder in the Krups...slower grinding doesn't burn the bean while grinding.
Summary: I bought it for my fiance for a Christmas gift-had tried several places and everyone was sold out. I found this one and I do mean one offered at Christmas. I love the fact that only on E-bay could I find one. Also, it is an awesome coffee maker-does everything. Great item for the coffee drinkers in your life. I would highly recommend this item to anyone who drinks coffee.
