I was thinking about buying another Krups, since I've had such a coffee maker for several years. But the sale price and the features of this Cuisinart were too good to resist. So far, the machine has performed as advertised, although this morning I noticed that it didn't quite empty the water reservoir, leaving water showing in the glass at the two cup level. The little brew finished alarm is inaudible if you're not standing nearby or have the TV on, say. I cannot tell the difference between the regular and bold brew settings. I grind my own beans, so I don't brew coffee which might be past its prime. The carafe doesn't keep the coffee hot beyond a few minutes; then, it cools to a warm temp. But I like a hot cup of coffee, so the microwave can heat my cup when the carafe cools. There are cheaper pots out there, but this one seems to be built well enough to last for a few years.

I was always a Krups fan, but the last coffeemaker I had by that maker proved problematic & needed 2 repairs in the space of 2 years...too often in such a short time. I wanted a thermal carafe & Cuisinart had a really good reputation (#1 coffeemaker in Consumer's Report). I'm highly pleased w/this machine; makes a pot quickly & lets me know when its ready, looks good, & the coffee stays hot forever (it seems!) in the carafe. The one drawback is the water reservoir; a bit too small to pour water easily w/out spilling, but of little consequence if you're careful.

If you need coffee first thing in the am and then drink for an hour, this is your coffee maker. Timer along with the thermal pot were requirements for me. I had to replace my Krups (so sad) and this had good reviews. I'm happy.

I am very happy with this coffeemaker. I had to replace my old Krups and chose this one. I can't believe how much better the coffee is! Really flavorful and perfect tempurature, even if I hit the alarm and get up 30 minutes after the coffee has been made. I had no idea how bad my old machine was! I am left handed and it's true the water goes in on the opposite side and is not very convenient me, however if you are left handed you are accustom to living in a right-handed world. I wish the lid detached easier but these are minor items. Getting a great cup of coffee time after time is enough for me. I recommend it.

This is a basic toaster with no frills. It is extremely lightweight - almost like a toy. I'm keeping it because it works, but I would never buy another. My previous toaster was made by Krups, and it was a superior product.

This is a super coffee maker. I have purchased several Krups coffee makers throughout the years and have been disappointed in the last two and decided to give the Melitta a try. I like strong tasting coffee so I buy a dark roast and choose the "robust" setting and I am a content gal in the morning! This coffee maker was a very good purchase, buy one.

This BonaVita coffee maker is stellar. I owed a Krups for several years prior and thought that was great compared to the Mr. Coffee variety, but this little coffee maker is a big step up. It is simple to use, makes wonderful coffee, and is so compact that I can keep it on the counter, even though I have little counter space. I couldn't be more pleased.

I've had this coffee maker for six months. It makes excellent coffee--probably the best I've ever had at home. In the past, I have owned Krups, Bunn, and Mr. Coffee machines. This Kalorik makes coffee that is superior to all three.

How did I live without a 12cup coffeemaker all these years! Love this coffeemaker. Have been a krups fan for years; this cuisinart replicates my last last Krups - only better!! 12 cup capacity and thermal stainless carafe are the best. Just one wish for change - the fluid measure should be on the front of the machine - a little awkward to read on the side.

The maker is an excellent quality - it keeps the coffee hot for a very long time which is outstanding when you want your coffee fresh and hot six hours after it was brewed! The coffee brewed in it is good - not as good as the coffee I brewed in my previous KRUPS coffee maker. The timer on the coffee maker is super easy to use and very convenient - I have enjoyed having this feature available to me.

This grinder works OK for my task which is grinding spices. It has a very strange blade assembly that is free to float around when the bowl is not mounted. The blade is also sits rather high, about 3/8" from the bottom. It does take a little longer to grind spices in this grinder than the old Krups I was using but the SS removable bowl makes it worth it. Be aware that you will have a big mess if grinding to a power if you don't make a simple fix. Just place a rubber band inside the plastic lid, around the perimeter. Place it close enough to the edge so that when you install the lid, the bowl will slide the rubber band into place. This will act like a gasket and seal the gap.

I don't know why some people have complained that the interior is plastic - a lot of my kettles have been plastic all over and there's nothing wrong with that. It means the kettle is doubly insulated and the exterior doesn't get so hot you can't touch it. I'm a Brit. I know all about kettles! I like the blue light to tell you it's on, and the water level indicator. It also looks very elegant. Replaces a Krups kettle which was a disaster, and very dangerous. This seems absolutely fine and I'd recommend it.

Prior reviews have stated that this is one of the cheapest conical burr grinders -- it is not. Far from it, actually, it is one of the more expensive grinders (that is suitable for grinding beans for drip/french press/all non-espresso needs). We've got Krups, DeLonghi, Capresso, Breville, Saeco...all these lower-priced ones. So why did I choose this one? In my opinion, Baratza grinders & the Capresso Infinity grinder are the only cheaper conical burr grinders worth messing with. The price of the heavier weight, metal body Capresso jumped up from $80 to $100. So I decided to buck up a little more cash for this unit. I'm glad I did! I've only spent a day with the Encore, and I am already very pleased with its grind quality! Its output is very consistent, and there is little to no static build-up in the grounds chamber (even less than the Capresso Infinity!). I am VERY impressed. A quick look at video reviews shows that it can even grind to espresso-fine with surprisingly good results. Although it can grind espresso, I feel that espresso-inclined people should look into getting at least a Baratza Virtuoso or a Rancilio Rocky instead of this Encore. But hey, if you're strapped for cash...apparently this machine will do the trick. The only reason I rated this product 4 stars is a rather petty one - they neglected to put a ground on this unit. Seriously? That is unacceptable. The Capresso Infinity has a ground on their units. It gives the plug-in a more secure connection, the unit some (basic) surge protection, and costs very little to put on the units. But for whatever reason, they decided to not put one on. This isn't the 1960s....ground wiring has been around for literally half a century. When purchasing an AC powered unit of any substantial value, a ground wire is to be expected, if not required. Thanks to Baratza, I am forced to plug this thing into a surge protector strip to ensure its safety.
