Rated 5 out of 5Â by ruthdonna Sharp, stylish appliance
I have looked and tried a few other coffee makers but the coffee was not hot enough. I had to order this one on line but I liked the way it looks and I have had a positive experience with Kitchen aide appliances before. I bought this to replace my white Kitchen aide coffee maker that I had for many years. This makes a large amount of great coffee, keeps it hot and has many features for smaller cups or stronger brew strength. I had to order a couple of times because the first two it was out of stock. Glad I waited for this particular model.

I do not know what all the complaints are but this is an excellent coffee maker. I purchased one for my niece for Christmas and she loved it and my husband wanted one so I purchased him one for an early Valentines and he LOVES it. It is so simple to use and does not leak and it is very quiet. I love how it does not beep really loud when the coffee is ready because he gets up earlier than I do. Coffee is very hot and you can choose how you brew. Nothing was wrong with my old coffee maker from Kitchen aid he just wanted a new one. Kitchen aid is one of the few who stand behind there products and I will continue to buy from them for that reason.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by luvsmykitchenaids Best coffee maker I have ever bought
I bought this coffee maker as a birthday present to myself. It was a bit of a splurge for such a simple appliance, but I am not disappointed. It has all the features I need and then some. I love the removable water reservoir. It makes it so easy to set up. I always spill the water as I pour it, not now. I can set my heating element time so it stays hot longer on the weekends and and shorter when I have to leave for work. I can set the strength of the brew which is great if I want to make a really strong pot for iced coffee later in the day. I just can't say enough about this coffee maker. I love it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Dieve Love my coffee maker!
This is my second Architect 14 cup coffee maker. The first one, not sure what Kitchen Aid was thinking. It was horrible. The hot plate was burnt and peeled off, the carafe leaked when you poured your coffee, it was a mess. Well it made good coffee so i though I would try another one. LOVE IT, What an improvement. They must of heard peoples complaints because its nothing like the first one I owned. If you had one of the older models like me, try a new one. So happy I decided to buy another one!
