I needed are placement for my much loved Braun coffee maker as it was on its last legs.
My basic 'must haves' were..
-stainless steel thermal carafe (absolutely no glass)
-through the lid brewing
-easy pouring WITHOUT turning the lid
I just stumbled onto this newly released machine from KRUPS. It has everything I wanted. The design is elegant, the finish is flawless, and looks more like a professional machine than a domestic. Size is surprisingly compact and slightly smaller over all than the Braun.
The control (on/off) is a clear illuminated one touch tab on the side. Touch on, touch off. No confusion if it is activated. On completion of brew, the switch turns its self off.
The filter and water tanks are bother covered by weighted and dampened doors, wrapped in more stainless steel on the top. The weight and feel of the doors add a nice 'quality' feel to the machine. The filter basket is easy to remove under the front lid and the water tank, at the rear. I was pleasantly surprised to find the water level gauge on the side of the tank, was easy to see and exactly accurate when compared to the overflow level of the tank, not often the case with many other brands.
The feature that really stands out for me is the carafe. The balance is just right so that you don't feel like you have to strain to squeeze the handle to hold on. The angle of the handle is perfect ergonomically so you don't strain your wrist. The wood trim on the handle is VERY easy to grip.Read more ›
Looks great, quiet, makes good coffee, as expected from Krups.
The only two draw backs are the little bubble that shows the water level sometimes sticks so you need to give the pot a knock so it shows the correct water level--important if trying to line up the water with the amount of coffee you're putting in. Secondly, the fingerprints (but nothing you can do about that).
Other than that, beautiful machine that works very well.
The hot water dispenser in the brewing chamber is a wide 'fountain' design, like a soaker shower head. Instead of a central drip design that just puts hot water in the middle of the coffee, this design 'soaks' the coffee basket for more flavour. I usually make 6 cups in the morning (about 2-3 mugs) and it takes around 6-8 minutes, so likely around 10 minutes for a full carafe.
- top shelf build quality and thoughtful design
- chrome finish is beautiful, unique and resilient
- very hot brewing temperature, thermal carafe keeps coffee hot
- thermal carafe means no heat plate to 'burn' your coffee
- easy to clean
- 10-cup capacity is slightly smaller than some other machines
- Carafe requires some dexterity to pour (press hard with your thumb on a 'trigger' and tip)
- Some owners will bemoan the fact that it doesn't have a timer
-Great looking machine. It looks great sitting on the counter and I always get compliments on the machine.
-Extremely easy to use. Push down the button on the side of the machine and it's brewing within seconds.
-Keeps coffee hot for hours! I've had it in there for a couple of hours and it's still very hot. Also, I brew this, 30-45 min. later I add it to my David's Tea Thermos, and when I open it up at work about a hour later, it's steaming, still!
-Bottom line, it brews a delicious and true cup of coffee!
-Haven't had any type of issue with the machine (warranty wise) and it still looks brand new.
*Though this list is longer than I had hoped, the pros MUCH outweigh the cons of this machine.*
-The issues about the carafe being poorly designed are unfortunately true. Sometimes I just remove the top and pour the coffee out of the side if I know only a bit is left inside. I've literally had the carafe upside down trying to pour out coffee with the lid on...
-When I fill the machine with water, I need to tap the side to get rid of air bubbles that accumulate in order to see how much water I've put in there. It doesn't read the water levels accurately unless you do that. You can also use a measuring cup, though!Read more ›

Really happy with this coffee maker. Simple to use, makes great coffee, looks great. As others noted, it does pour slowly, which is a bit annoying, but not the end of the world.Published 19 months ago by Alexandra Shaw
