Summary: Length:: 0:25 Mins Bought this machine in '08, and it hasn't given me a lick of trouble in all that time, and makes, in my opinion, great coffee. I suspect that folks who've had a bad experience are more inclined to post a negative review than folks who are simply happy with their purchase, making it seem like the product has problems. Anyway, the discoloration of the heating plate is not a functional problem, as it works just as well.
Summary: I have been using it every morning for 10 months up to now. I'm very satisfied about the product. What I like most is the design. It's compact and contemporary. It keeps coffee constantly warm. Some reviewers feel it keeps coffee too hot. I don't find this is a problem because you can turn off the power to cool it a bit before drinking.
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.
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.
