Top customer reviews
--If you are looking for a coffee maker with a timer, don't buy this coffee maker and then give it three stars because it doesn't have a timer.
--If you are looking for a coffee maker with a hot plate that continuously heats your coffee after brewing is done, don't buy this coffee maker and then give it three stars because it doesn't have a hot plate.
--If you are looking for a coffee maker with a glass caraffe that can pour a gallon of coffee into a jug in ten seconds, don't buy this coffee maker and then give it three stars because it doesn't have a glass caraffe that can pour a gallon of coffee into a jug in ten seconds.
--If you are looking for a coffee maker with a thermal caraffe that will keep your coffee hot without heating after brewing, don't buy this coffee maker and then give it three stars because it doesn't pour fast enough. You will search in vain for your entire life for a thermal caraffe with a massive opening that pours really fast but also keeps your coffee hot for two hours; complaining about the speed with which the caraffe on this coffee maker pours is like complaining that you are really disappointed in your Toyota Camry because it doesn't fly and then convert easily into a submarine.
--If you are looking for a coffee maker with a really long cord and will take a star away from a coffee maker that complies with kitchen appliance guidelines for cord length, you are barking mad.
--If you will get annoyed and take away a star from a coffee maker because its properly designed thermal caraffe needs to be tilted past horizontal to get the last of the coffee out, you may not be be barking mad, but you are searching for a level of perfection in your life that is unattainable, and I feel sorry for you.
If you are still reading, it must be because you don't care about a timer, don't need a coffee maker with a hot plate, don't need a glass caraffe that pours like Niagara Falls, understand basic thermodynamics, are not barking mad and have reasonable expectations about what life can deliver to you. So why did I give this coffee maker five stars? I'll bulletize this list, too:
--It makes great coffee that comes out at the right temperature and then stays hot enough to enjoy for a solid two hours.
--It is beautiful.
--It is simple: there is just one button to push which then lights up until your coffee is done at which point the light goes out. That's it. There are no other controls of any kind.
--It solves many small problems that can compromise other coffee maker designs: you can see how full the tank is from either side of the machine, the space in which you pour cold water has a very broad opening and the design of the caraffe lid is slick.
That's it. If you like a beautiful machine with a thermal caraffe that makes great coffee and does absolutely nothing else, this is the coffee maker for you.
That said, there are a couple of small gripes that would not keep me from purchasing this product again. One is the price. It's a bit expensive compared to other coffee makers in its "class." For less money you can get a machine with all the afore-mentioned perks and frills. Can I guarantee you they will, quite simply, make coffee as good as this one? No, I cannot. You're obviously paying for the Krups name and for what is almost a piece of coffee making art or furniture - but it does what it should with no complications. There is something to be said for never having to reset the clock or functions - just push the button and get great coffee every time.
The other minor-issue I have is the weird design of the pot. What other reviewers have said is true. You do have to completely invert the pot to empty out the last bit of coffee because of the odd design. This isn't necessary except to get out the last 5-6 ounces of coffee, but it doesn't really present a problem to me - it's not messy or anything, just odd.
Also, the pot did come with a strong chemical odor in it, as some of the other reviewers have mentioned. I did not make or drink any coffee from the machine until it was gone. I got rid of the odor by filling the pot with vinegar and letting it sit over night. That got rid of the smell completely and I never experienced any weird white powder or film or odd-tasting coffee, though if your water is hard it will show up both on the machine and pot as well as in the pot worse than it will on other things in your kitchen.
1. Makes great, hot coffee.
2. Thermal pot keeps coffee hot, no burner necessary.
4. Easy to maintain.
5. Looks great.
1. Pot design a little weird.
2. A bit pricey.
UPDATE 01/25/2012: Just want to say that 2 1/2 months later, still loving this coffee maker. I don't think the pot pours too slow like other reviewers have said and it works just fine, if a bit strange. I made coffee this morning. I used some hot water to pre-heat the thermal pot, which I do not ALWAYS do as I don't see it as necessary; I like to not scald my mouth. I'm more concerned about the coffee getting hot enough to properly brew than getting it to my cup super hot. Anyway, I left work without having my morning coffee. Doh! I came home 8 hours later and the coffee in the pot was still warm. Granted, it was not HOT, but it was warm enough to heat the cup and for my wife to drink it. I heated mine in the microwave for a bit.
UPDATE 03/07/2013: After more than a year with the coffee maker, it still makes great coffee. About a month ago I decided to test the brewing temperature with an instant read thermometer. Over a few days of testing it consistently read 198 degrees in the filter during brewing. This is right in the target zone for hot-brewing (195-205 degrees). My parents have a Bunn restaurant style coffee maker (brews instantly). I bought a gold basket filter for it, but my wife and I agree - it just doesn't taste as good as the coffee we make in this machine at home. The only issue I've seen develop over the last year is that on the initial pour, a little bit of coffee runs out of the spring loaded valve on top where the coffee enters the pot. Still very, very happy with this product.
