I ordered this coffee maker after having owned several other brands that all performed poorly, for varied reasons. The Krups 12 cup model seemed expensive. However, I reasoned that I would grit my teeth and allot funds to purchase a "top of the line" coffee maker, and that doing so would assure me of problem-free operation. That is, I will get what I pay for, I thought. Well, no. This coffee maker has the odd habit of occasionally simply failing to brew. Specifically, the water does not pass through the grounds located in the basket insert, with the result that I am left with 12 cups of steaming hot water...but no coffee. In summary, I am sorry to report that the Krups 12 cup coffee maker is a dud, and not to be recommended. So much for getting what you pay for.

I am heartfullly disappointed in Krups for putting out a product that falls so far short of their reputation. I will think twice before purchasing that brand in the future.

The ice never fully gets churned up. The Krups blender I have is much better. Even though it seems like it would be better it isn't.

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.

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.

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'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.

I was disappointed with this blender compared to my old Krups. When I pulled it out of the box, I had a bad feeling because the base was noticeably lighter than my old one. Despite using more Watts, the motor on the Cuisinart blender doesn't have very good torque. This means more stopping and stirring by hand when making smoothies. It makes a really loud noise as well -- so loud I feel I need to cover my ears while using it. Overall it is a big step down from my old Krups blender.

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.

Stopped working after 6 months of use... just plain died... I didn't register it within 30 days of purchase, so I can't even use this 1 year warranty. I've wasted money, and now this beauty goes to the recycling trash can. My old Krups electric kettle was serving my family several times a day for almost 16 years, - now THAT was the Quality Product!

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.

This is my third espresso maker. The first was a very expensive Gaggia, the second was a Krups. This is my best so far. I use it daily. It comes with an instructional dvd, which is a great help. Please note that I use espresso pods with this machine. It makes a perfect cup of espresso. I only use pods, so I can't give a review of using grounds. Good froth, easily cleaned and the instructional dvd shows how to make cappuccino easily. The machine looks good, which is a bonus, as it sits out on a countertop.

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.

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.

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.

My wife bought this for me last May (2013). When I got it, I was ecstatic about it. I went out and bought my first keg, which was Newcastle. Put the keg in and waited for it to get cool. I waited 24 hours like it said. Then I went for the fist pour and nothing but foam came out. That was because the beer wasn't cold. So I waited another 24 hours and the same thing. So I contacted Edgestar about the problem and they gave me some tips, like make sure there is enough room behind the kegerator for air flow and make sure you chill the keg beforehand. I did all that and still had 60 degree beer. So they sent me a cooling node to replace the one that is in the unit. There were no instructions, just "take a look at this YouTube video for a different model and see if that will help." So I did end up replacing the cooling node by myself. I started over with a new chilled keg and same thing; 60 degree beer after 24 hours. The keg had been refrigerated for two days in the fridge beforehand. So then I just shelved the thing and basically forgot about it until yesterday when I contacted support again to see if they could help with the problem (Feb. 2014, still within the 1 year warranty). They told me that there is only a 90 day warranty on the labor and that I would have to pay*** in labor to have them fix it. Otherwise I would have to take it to a small appliance repair shop and let them fix it (which I would have to pay them labor for). The parts are covered for a year, but nothing else. So in short, their support sucks. They are unresponsive and not helpful at all. I would recommend the Krups model if you just want to get pressurized kegs. If you want to have your own kegs, then you will have to find a model that will work, but I wouldn't suggest anything made by Edgestar. I'm an IT guy and I am very good with electronics, so I'm going to try to fix this myself.

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.

Bought this a year ago as a birthday gift for my husband. Makes good, hot coffee. We love it!
