Summary: My Krups KM1000 arrived yesterday and this morning, I brewed my first pot of coffee. Oh the joy of an exceptional, hot mug of coffee first thing in the morning! I replaced a Keurig that has been nothing by misery. It's larger than I had expected, but the system came out of the box, was programmed and set up in a matter of minutes. We love the ambient blue glow of the analog-like clock. The only detraction is the auto-shutoff after 2 hours.
Summary: We had a Cuisinart coffeemaker for over a decade and it worked beautifully until it started leaking water while it brewed. We did a fairly extensive search and settled on this Krups because the size seemed right, it has our requisite programmable brewing, and we liked how it looked. Unfortunately, it looks much cheaper in person. We end up with coffee grounds in our coffee every morning. The carafe tends to drip when you pour. It does brew quickly and keep coffee hot.
Summary: After my BUNN HG Phase Brew 8-Cup Home Coffee Brewer stopped working after 18 months (which replaced my workhorse Cuisinart DCC-1200 Brew Central 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker, Black/Brushed Metal that I'd had for years), I was on the lookout for a new coffee maker that would look good, brew a pot of coffee quickly, and be reliable.
Great coffee maker - check dates on negative reviews
28 September 2013
Summary: This is a great little coffee maker in the $50 range. If you have read some negative reviews of this model, check the dates on those reviews, as I think Krups redesigned things a little. Our Cuisinart DCC-1200 died after 9 years (a pretty good run.) In spite of some problems it developed with the clock, I was ready to by another Cuisinart. But I started shopping around and I was intrigued by the look of the Krups KM1000.
Summary: Our son has one and has been singing its praises for a while. When we are at his house in Boston, we always admire its simplicity, its ease in use, its features, and the fresh, clean taste of the coffee!! We appreciate that the grounds have ample space and do not overflow! So, we stowed away our Mr. Coffee and bought a Krups! We love it!! Thanks, Krups, for the consistently great ease and taste of our beloved coffee!!
Summary: Great coffee and hot! Glad we purchased this. Krups never fails with quality. I have purchased numerous coffee makers by Krups, wore them out, and will continue to purchase Krups because of their great product.
Summary: I have used Cuisnart, Kitchen Aid, and Krups Coffee Makers over the years. The former two just didn't make the grade or the mile, no matter what the price. Once I switched to Krups, I was pleasantly surprised how well their coffee makers work, and consistently so. The price is about the same as Cuisnart, but I didn't have to replace my previous Krups for over six years. This model is very close to the last one I had , and I'm equally as happy with this one.
