Summary: I really wanted to love this (mostly because it looks really cool) but it just didn't function (and I really can't begin to understand what they were thinking with the weird coffee grinder swing door function?
Summary: I used a Cuisinart machines with built-in burr grinder for many years. After the grinder gave out I decided to give this Krups machines a try. Pros: -The grinder is much quieter than the Cuisinart -Sleek and compact Cons: -Doesn't brew strong coffee.
Summary: I read all the reviews before I bought this coffeemaker. I knew that many people had problems with the heating element not working soon after they purchased but it seemed that from the manufacturer's opinion was the problem fell to the consumer not changing the filter as directed.
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!!
Summary: I purchased this looking for the perfect solution of convenience and great coffee, however, didn't end up with either. First- I had the similar problem to several other reviewers. After grinding the coffee, the machine proceeds to SPRAY THE GROUNDS ALL OVER THE COUNTER.
Summary: My 4 year old Cusinart stopped working and although it served me well over the years, it was time to find a coffee maker that served "hot" flavorful freshly grounded coffee. My husband bought this coffee maker for me after I researched every grind & brew currently available.
