I am abslutely stunned that a "trusted" brand like Kenmore would put its name on this thing. It worked pretty well for the first couple weeks. Now the coffee doesn't even drip into the carafe. When I turned it on, coffee went all over my counter and onto the floor. I threw the whole thing away. It's junk.

If I could give it less than one star, I would. Have gone through three of these now - in varying colors. TERRIBLE. They all have leaked water EVERYwhere. The last two, while they lasted a tad longer, were demanding a new filter within days of operation. Ended up ruining the buffet it was sitting on initially because we didn't notice the water at first. Got wise and placed the next two replacement machines in a large plastic party tray with a two inch lip which we had to empty (the water out of) after every use - no matter if we make four cups of coffee or twelve. Hot plates stop working. Pause and serve works at random. Terrible, terrible product. The third one has now died and I am not even bothering with the offered replacement for it. I will just buy something that actually works. Kenmore needs to stick with what they know. Removing skidmarks from dirty underwear they are fantastic with. Making a functional coffee pot - not so much.

We bought this coffee pot from Sears about a month ago. And absolutely loved it. The beep every 15 minutes is mildly annoying (wish there was a way to turn it off) but it's not a big deal, I just ignore it.

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a puddle of water across my counter - but we thought we had just overfilled the pot a bit. However, this has begun happening every few times we make coffee - it's not consistent and it's only a cup or two but it makes a huge mess. After the last leak, I checked the coffee maker over carefully and when I picked it up, water drizzled out of the vent on the bottom of the maker.

Luckily, I had read mixed reviews before we bought the pot so we had also purchased the warranty plan at Sears. We're going to exchange it and see how the next one works out. I'll try to update in a few weeks!

Update October 24th, 2011 - we got a replacement and it's been working terrifically ever since! We love this coffee pot!

I am on my second one of these coffee pots, going for number three under the warranty. In less than 12 moonths I have had two of them just stop working. If you do decide to buy one, buy an extended warranty or you'll end up tossing it a few months later. I'd spend extra and get something less problematic.

We bought this coffee maker about a month ago, and only later noticed the poor reviews here on a similar model, which several people said had leaked for them. Have my fingers crossed, but so far this has been a very good coffee maker. It was easy to set up and we have no trouble with the controls. It comes with an internal charcoal filter, which I think has really helped not only the flavor of the coffee but has helped prevent mineral build-up from our hard water. We have well water, so someone who has chlorinated city water might notice even more of an inmprovement in the coffee taste, I don't know. I like that it has a notice that flashes to remind you that you should do a vinegar run-through and change the filter, but it only came with one filter and I am having trouble finding a replacement. That is my only complaint so far. My husband is the bigger coffee drinker, and he could not be more pleased at this point. He has carpal tunnel, and he especially likes the fact that carafe has a wider, easier-pouring lip, so it pours more quickly and efficiently, and he is not struggling to hold the pot steady forever over the cup while a tiny stream trickles out. I will try to remember to get back to this review if we do experience a leaking issue or other problem, but --- so far, so good!

I bought this coffee maker from sears to match the toaster that I love. It leaked, so I took it back and that one leaked. From what I've seen, it seems to be a problem with this particular style. I love kenmore products and will continue to buy that brand just not this one.

The Good: This makes a good robust pot of coffee.

The Bad:

The charcoal filter, which sits at the end of a wand and sits way down in the very bottom of the water reservoir somehow ruptured and filled the entire reservoir with granulated charcoal.

Cleaning the reservoir required turning the unit upside down over the sink and hosing it out. Water got in to the electronic LED unit and shorted it out, rendering it useless.

The burner unit in the lid, on top, gets EXTREMELY hot. This thing steams like a Turkish Sauna. I made the mistake of trying to reach around the back of the unit while it was running in order to wipe up some water that had leaked out. In the process, my wrist touched the hinge of the top (near where the steam seeps out) and I received a 2nd degree burn 4" long across my wrist. Ouch!

The pot is 12 cups, but if you fill the reservoir up to the overflow port, putting as much water as the reservoir will hold, you only wind up with coffee up to the 10 cup fill line in the pot.

The unit is HUGE. Unnecessarily so, in my opinion, especially considering that you only get 10 cups from it.

This unit wouldn't even get 2 stars if not for the fact that it does make good, robust coffee.

I'm looking forward to the day when this thing simply dies, so I will be forced to get a replacement. I assure you it will NOT be a Kenmore brand!

We've had nothing but trouble with this coffee maker. It never makes a truly good cup of coffee, no matter what brand you use or how much coffee you put in. Also, it started leaking water shortly after we bought it! At first it was just a little bit, but now it leaks more and more! We kept a folded up towel under it for months, but it has gotten so bad that we finally bought a new coffee maker today. We should have returned it to Sears right away, but waited too long, so in the trash it goes...

Some other complaints:
This thing is huge!! I think they were trying to make it look like an expensive commercial appliance, but there's nothing fancy about it! It also has a heavy duty three prong cord - not sure why, all is has is a regular programmable timer. Maybe they needed to ground the plug since it leaks so much water?!

The only "fill line" is inside the back of the coffee maker where you pour the water in. Most coffee makers have these on the outside so it's easy to see how much water you're pouring in.

Kenmore usually sells good appliances, but don't waste your money on this one!

We have had this pot for some time so it is no longer new to us. In this time, we have discovered that the clock has become very fast to the point of resetting 2x a month at least. It is also extremely hard to effectively clean. The interior gold tone filter I broke almost immediately and had to replace as well. The filter has been a challenge to find--it appears Amazon carries it but at $19/2 is a bit much considering the negatives. It is a good pot, brews quickly and hot enough for us but I feel is cheaply made. However, does not serve its purpose in making a consistent quality cup where I do not have to go out and buy a cup on the way to work.
