One star for faulty design.
Book Shop Girl
It is impossible to pour coffee into a cup without having coffee flow down the back of the Carafe, all over the counter.
Amazon Customer
It's the best coffee maker I have ever owned and will never stray from that brand again.

This replaced a Krups coffee maker (KM4065).

This coffee maker has been wonderful. As another reviewer mentioned, it has one of the best pouring spouts around. The carafe keeps the coffee hot for at least 2.5 hours, and reasonably warm enough after 3 hours. A side note: make sure you see the small arrow indicator on the lid of the carafe, and that this arrow points toward the spout of the carafe when installed. We had placed the lid on the carafe with the arrow facing the toward the handle because it appeared to be a "selector arrow" matching the selctable positions with words on the carafe for "lock" "pour" and "open", but the arrow is actually supposed to point toward the spout "outlet" while pouring coffee. It'd be helpful if Kitchenaid could modify the lid with a white (or molded) dot to indicate in which of the position it is set. That's a negligible issue.

Coffee is brewed at a pleasingly hot temperature. Other coffee makers I've used have not heated the water enough.

The removable water tank is a superb feature that the Krups had which we were not wanting to give up. This coffee maker has a much better implementation of the tank that allows it to fit snugly into the coffee maker with practically no fussing or adjusting; it just settles into its slot perfectly. The Krups unit required lots of adjusting to have the tank drop into place.

The blue lighted display is very nice and matches a lot of the current appliance displays. It's not a glaringly bright display, which is nice because the Krups unit was unfortunately like a night light. The numbers not huge, and are somewhat fine, not bold or blocky.

As a coffee addict/connoisseur, I have spent hundreds of dollars on a wide variety of different coffee makers. Out of all the fancy and expensive makers, the best one was still my 10 year old single cup Black and Decker brewer. It was completely basic, but brewed into a thermal travel mug and brewed a great cup of coffee. However, one cup isn't enough for me. Most larger machines use glass carafes with warmers, which ruins the coffee after about an hour. I drink coffee all morning and I don't enjoy burnt coffee. I have been searching for a good thermal carafe coffee maker for awhile now. Up until recently, there just weren't enough on the market, and the ones that were on the market received mostly terrible reviews.

First off, this one is very aesthetically pleasing. It looks great in the kitchen. The removable water tank with fill level marks makes adding water easy. The door on the front that secures the filter basket swings open and snaps shut snugly. The included gold tone filter is a nice touch, some feel you get a better cup of coffee than with paper filters. I agree, however paper filters provide easier cleanup since you have to clean out and rinse the permanent filter every time. You don't have to use the permanent filter, but it's nice that it is included if you want to. The included water tank filter is one of those things where I'll use it until it needs replaced and then throw it away and fill the tank with filtered water and not bother buying overpriced replacements. Most people have a Brita or water filtration system built into their fridge so in-tank filters are kind of overkill and unnecessary in my opinion. Using the filter is optional, the coffee maker will work the same without it.

The blue digital readout on the front is nice and easy to use.

There is a limited selection of coffee makers available with a thermal carafe and a removable water tank. I purchased this unit after trying a similarly equipped Mr. Coffee which leaked. This KitchenAid is simple to use, makes good, hot coffee, and has the best pouring carafe of any I have owned. Spendy for a coffee pot, but worth it for the features and performance.

WELL, A MUCH NEEDED UPDATE: THIS COFFEE MAKER OVERFLOWED A FEW TOO MANY TIMES AND FRUSTRATED, I THREW IT OUT AND I BOUGHT A TOP END MR COFFEE WITH A REMOVEABLE WATER TANK. IT ALSO OVERFLOWED, BUT WE MODIFIED IT, REMOVING THE WATER FILTER AND SUBSTITUTING THE BREW BASKET FROM THE OLD COFFEE MAKER! SO FAR, SO GOOD... IN OTHER WORDS, DON'T BUY THIS.

After my 10 year old coffee maker started leaking, I began a search for a replacement. Requirements were: removable water tank, thermal carafe, adjustable brew strength (bold was very important), automatic brew timer.

I almost gave up after searching through the popular brands, talking with friends about their failures with coffee makers, and trying out several duds. But then I found this Kitchenaid and all our problems were solved!

It works exactly as promised. I can fill the water tank at the kitchen sink and slip it into the back without spilling the water everywhere, I can load the ground coffee into the flat brew basket, and I can pour out of my thermal carafe without the burned taste that comes from a glass heated carafe.

As other reviews noted, there are initial confusions about the carafe lid not quite working intuitively. After analyzing the problem of seating the lid properly, I put 2 little dots on both the lid and carafe to match up for pouring, and now anyone can figure it out! It just takes a little patience to check out the 3 different positions; one to take off the lid, one for locking, one for pouring. As with all things, it just takes getting used to, and now that I have marked the positions, it's second nature. And all the positive points overcome this initial confusion created by Kitchenaid in not clearly marking the lid.
