Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brings back memories I remember my parents had a Sunbeam that worked this way in the mid 50's. Very pleased with the taste of the coffee, but comparing it to the 50's model, the cloth filter clipped between two mesh filters, it was easy to remove, clean and use again and didn't have to be tied on and untied to remove to clean. The filter also extended down and hooked to the bottom of the syphon and was very secure. I've had a few times when the pressure of the water flowing up into the upper pot blew the filter out, even with making sure that the filter was securely in place. What a mess! Also, in this day in time, there should be a hold warm feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT cup of coffee Have been brewing coffee via the vacuum process for years. I have several Silex and Cory brewers and a Sunbeam Coffeemaster electric vacuum coffee maker that my parents used in the 1950s. Happy to see that Kitchen Aid has made the process simpler and love the magnetic seal rather than the former rubber seal that was the norm on the old vacuum pots. Wish that the entire bottom unit could be immersed in water for cleaning, but when cleaning the bottom unit, adding some bicarbonate of soda and water and let the unit stand for an hour or two will keep the unit fresh and eliminate stale coffee odor and taste. Great coffee brewer, well worth the money

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent machine but there are reservations Having used nearly all coffee makers in an effort to get the best strong brew, and not wanting to have to store butane for my manual syphon, I bought this machine. It has one glaring deficiency. You cannot control the immersion time on this machine to get a really rich cup. With Syphons this is paramount. I have seen a few workarounds that others have tried, but it would be a simple matter to engineer a timer in to the machine. The only alternative is to use more coffee and it is very wasteful if you buy premium coffees from a roaster. For my morning mug I have to use 32 grams, although it does help if you stir the coffee as it enters the upper chamber. So Kitchen Aid, how bout it? Give us some control of the brew, because you have made a decent start. Also you really have to have a really good helical grinder to make the best brew.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best results of any coffee-making method I've ever used At first I was disappointed, but then found that the coffee's bitterness was reduced and the flavor improved with each use. I feel that it is worth the premium price. Be sure that the filter is properly inserted, that the upper carafe is seated securely on the lower, and that the top is also placed securely.
