    Best coffee maker ever!

    Posted

    This is the best coffee maker I have ever owned! I had a hard time finding reviews on this coffee maker so I thought I would let you all know about this one. The coffee comes out quickly and is very hot! The carafe is very easy to clean and so is the lid. My last Mr. Coffee let me down from the first day. The coffee wasn't hot enough and strangely, the lid was very hard to clean. I was glad when it stopped using all the water in the reservoir so I could buy a knew coffee maker. The only review I could find on this KitchenAid, was that the lid is goofy to use and I find that to be true too. The "lock" and "pour" stations aren't clear at all, and the little arrow is hard to see. It's also a little hard to grip the lid. It just takes a little bit of practice to "get" it. It's such a minor thing compared to all the negatives I read about other coffee makers, it's laughable. I do put hot water to heat the carafe, but I've always done that with any thermos I use. I highly recommend this coffee maker!

    I have the 12-cup thermal carafe version. Water reservoir is removable so can easily be filled at sink. Brew basket easily removed from front of machine and is easy to clean. Machine makes delicious coffee, even when brewing smaller (3 cup) amounts. The thermal carafe keeps coffee hot for a couple of hours. The programming controls were not intuitive, but once I figured out the logic all was fine. This is the best coffee maker I have owned.

    The operating controls are not intuitive; much to procedural Temperature of coffee was warm at best. Was forced to preheat the carafe with boiling water. No time for that. The brass basket overflowed twice during brewing the last time was Christmas morning. Made a huge mess. I shipped it back shortly afterwards. I own other KitchenAid products and have very pleased, especially with my stand mixer. This product was a huge dissapointment.

    I have had problems getting the lid to operate properly and it is difficult to see the arrow to align the "pour" feature. If you take off the lid to pour, coffee runs down the side of the carafe and drips all over the counter. The spout is not designed to allow for pouring. Purchasing another brand.
