Need Coffee? Hope you have a few minutes...

 

Krups has always been a name that I thought signified the best in coffee-making products. When you look at their offerings, they have some very attractive coffeemakers with great features. These products are usually priced a little higher than the...

looks nice, good sized pot

spills when pouring, makes coffee very slowly

ProAroma, Bad Coffee

 

I am a coffee addict. It is not caffeine that I crave. All I ask is for a good cup of coffee in the morning, decaf or regular. I was encouraged to register for the ProAroma when my friend was helping me with my wedding registry. I was assured that...

Auto brew and shut off. Looks good.

Drips, doesn't pour well, makes really bad coffee.

COFFEE, COFFEE EVERYWHERE - BUT NOT A DROP TO DRINK

 

When the time came for a new coffee maker, I chose to go the expensive route. I had always purchased the less expensive ones an they lasted, maybe two or three years, so I figured: "Well, maybe if I buy a better one, it will last much, much...

love/hate relationship

 

Having had a white Krups ProAroma 12-cup coffee maker (model #453) for about 2 years, I have mixed feelings about it.

stop and serve" feature to sneak an early cup

drippy spout on carafe ; confusing programmability

Consumer review by:

A good choice

 

I chose this coffee maker because of its features and because of the Krups name. The machine has been in heavy use for about 6 months and I am totally satisfied. The pot's best features are:

Good coffee, water filter, programmable timer

too many settings

Feeding the need of a coffee addict

 

For me, coffee is somewhere between a habit and a vice. My daily consumption is somewhere in the 20-30 mega-mug range. I have coffee before breakfast, before going to the gym, before work, after lunch, with dinner, and before bed. Fortunately, there...

Perfect brew temperature, a breeze to use and clean

Warming plate is too hot, the automatic timer requires too much work, "pourly" designed spout

Why Did I Wait 10 Years to Replace my Coffeemaker??

 

Awhile back, I wrote about the Braun coffee maker I have had for over ten years. It just wouldn't die, and so I was having a hard time replacing it. Well, my parents came for a visit and decided it needed to be retired, so they bought me a new one...

Many adjustable settings, can get a cup of coffee while brewing, water filter

None so far

A $100 coffee pot that can't even make a hot cup of java

 

Pro Aroma Time, by Krups, maker is loaded with features which I will discuss . One HUGE problem... it can't make a hot cup of coffee :( For this reason alone, I cannot recommend this coffee maker despite its impressive others features. I would...

I Thought Krups Was A Respected Name In Coffee Makers...

 

I was initially attracted to the Krups Coffee Maker because of the brand name reputation. I even managed to find a decent sale, significantly reducing its high regular price. I must say that, after only 1 year of use, I am thoroughly disappointed and...

It came in black

Poor design, highly defective
