Rated 3 out of 5Â by angryllama great looking, showerhead doesn't work
Though this unit looks great, it doesn't perform as expected. I get compliments on the coffee it makes, so I'm torn rating this as an average coffee maker but it really is. The coffee temp is lower than it should be- when I pour a cup and add cream, forget about it. Coffee temp is down and must be consumed immediately to enjoy. Who drinks coffee like that?? Pouring the water into back corner reservoir is difficult. I've seen other units w/ an easier-to-fill design. Last but not least, the showerhead does not work properly- all of the water comes out of center hole only w/ occasional dribbles from other holes. Though this is a 12-cup coffee maker, making more than 8 cups will leave dry grounds behind since the ground mound will be basically flat. That is unacceptable.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by seaglass39 Quit working after about 2 years
I would not recommend this product. I can't believe how many other reviews also said it died between 1 and 3 years - I stopped counting after about 8! i agree much too soon for how expensive it is. It was great up until then and I am going to see if I can get it replaced under the warranty or through Kohls, so I don't lose my money, but otherwise I wouldn't buy it again.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by JulesATL Very functional and attractive.
We have gone through many different types of coffee pots. From the ones that grind the beans to the ones that make individual cups to espresso makers. Back to the basics, an attractive coffee maker that makes a good cup of coffee and keeps it warm. Done..
Rated 1 out of 5Â by coffeepot Disappointing
This coffee maker has never worked for me. It just basically makes brown water. I've tried everything, changing coffee brands, grinding my own coffee beans, putting more coffee in, changing different filters, etc. and it never comes out right. I'm disappointed because I love the look of it and I own many other cusinart products which I love. I even emailed the company to ask if they had any way of fixing it or any recommendations and of course I heard nothing back from them. Maybe I just got a dud because I see no one else had this problem. I threw out the packaging and reciept so I'll just take it as a loss.. :(
