Cheap Product

 

Krups used to mean quality. Is it becoming just another cheap appliance?

Coffee tasted great for the week or two it worked

It broke within a week. There is a delicate flap where the coffee comes out of the machine and into the pot, with a cheap spring. The spring doesn't work. Buy another model

Consumer review by:

Great Maker

 

Super easy to clean. Did I mention that the coffee was excellent.

It just makes great tasting coffee. Buy this and be happy

Lid does not come off of pot, but can be forced off

Great Coffee Maker

 

I am what you call an average coffee drinker. I love this coffee maker. I went from an plain jane coffee maker to this one and I am very happy.

Ready out of the box

This is a werid con - The alarm (which you can disable) reminds me of a smoke detector

Difficult to program! Would not buy again

 

The directions to program are difficult and unclear. Had to call the help line to program first time. We have had a power outage and guess we will have to call again, we have tried for two days to get it programed! Would not buy again.
