We bought this coffee maker several weeks ago so we have had time to evaluate it. It is very easy to use,and the coffee is as good as ant coffee house we did try their recommendation for the amount of grounds to use and had to cut back about 1/3 to suit our taste.
We love our Kitchenaid coffee maker. This is the only 14 cup maker we have found, plus the carafe allows you to pour without spilling the coffee. For years, we used another brand and the coffee maker made good coffee; however, the carafe was made so that you could not pour from it without spilling the coffee. I have not had that problem with Kitchenaid. Love it!
All of the coffee makers have bad reviews and I could not find one with better reviews than this one.
My Melitta grind-and-brew was falling apart so I needed a coffee maker.
This one makes pretty good coffee after I figure out the grind level on my grinder.
And it is simple to operate.
But there are some stupidity build in.
First of all the tank lid does not stand up. Filling from the carafe takes more water because lid does not allow to pour all of the water by being in the way.
Setting 1-4 cups takes more steps than necessary. They should have just put one button for this feature. Yet it takes to push menu few times and then to push + or - and then "set". Why? Why not just push "set" if I am already on the menu.
I bought this online when my Cuisinart crashed and burned. Our coffee maker gets a lot of use. I was looking for a thermal carafe coffee maker and entered into search but in my rush to order, I didn't realize this was glass carafe. It has a lot of features like heat setting for the hot plate to prevent scalding coffee. But I hate hot plates because it will still burn the coffee. This has an auto set feature but what a pain to set. You have to go through like 4 modes to set it every night. I really liked my previous Cuisinart coffee maker but have never found one to last beyond a year. This one when it breaks, I definitely will not buy another one.
The carafe in the picture is from the insulated carafe in the 12 cup model if you look at the parts breakdown picture it shows a glass carafe. Which is correct?bigjohn5 on Dec 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
