Sturdy, works well, could use some changes

JackieLovesCoffee 7/30/2019

The design and construction of the coffee maker are outstanding, but it could use some small changes. For example, the coffee maker will shut-down after two hours, so your coffee will get cold if left unattended for longer than two hours. The mesh filter that comes with the machine has numbers inside that tell you how much coffee grinds you should fill the filter with, but the numbers are hard to see since they are the same color as the dark filter. The water tank is large enough where it could have been made for a fourteen cup coffee maker. I would have given the product a star rating of 4.5, but only allowed for four. Overall, KitchenAid has not let me down in any of the appliances and would recommend this coffee maker and other products to others.

Neiva 7/29/2019

I've been wanting a coffee maker for the longest time but could not find one that was good for me. After a month I'm so happy I chose this one! I love Kitchen Aid so I knew I would not be disaapointed.

GREAT HOT COFFEE THAT STAYS HOT

JoEllen9851 7/25/2019

GREAT Hot coffee. However the water/coffee suggested ratio measurement on the Water Tank is stronger than we need. For 12 cups water, we use 8 1/4 Tablespoons of coffee. For 8 cups water, we use 5 Tablespoons Coffee. . That is a minor issue and subject to user's individual taste. Also, another Review gave a negative comment that the 2 hour warmer cannot be turned off once coffee is made. That is not true. It is all in the coffee pot Instruction Manual. Love this coffeemaker!

Best coffee ever

Postman1 6/24/2019

Ive had this coffee maker about a week. I can't race enough as to how good my morning coffee is now. Very straight forward on use. Easy to clean. 9 minutes till a full pot. Well built as is all kitchen aid components. Would buy another IF this ever broke down.

Good Buy

Nadd 6/20/2019

I have used for 2 weeks and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Operates easily and gives me a great pot of coffee. I used a Mr. Coffee in the past and felt like my coffee wasn't strong enough. When I added more coffee grounds to the basket, it just made the brew too bitter. So far the taste and strength of this coffeemaker are perfect. thanks

All the features I've wanted.

Jonny75 5/30/2019

What can I say from a cone filter to a removable water tank. The coffee I've had from this machine brings out a bolder and richer flavor. I'm not one that likes scaling hot coffee but this machine will keep the coffee piping hot. You cannot control the the heat setting or the auto off. The auto off is 2 hours and has a countdown timer which is nice.

Iwakeupforcoffee 5/9/2019

I absolutely loved the color of this coffee maker, and love the removable water tank as my husband is notorious for not cleaning the pot before filling the tank. Brews fast, tastes great, looks great on my coffee station.

In love with this coffee maker

Landofozmama 4/16/2019

This is my new favorite coffee maker. With the spiral showerhead, you get a full pot of delicious coffee, because this spiral showerhead makes sure all the coffee in the filter is used to brew your pot. Love the placement of the water tank, it takes up so much less room on my countertop

Nice but big

sharden 4/15/2019

This is a large coffee maker, and takes up a lot of space. That being said, I love the filter, the taste is better (even better than my Keurig), it's easy to use...I love that the water tank comes off, I don't have to shift the whole thing around to pour the water in.

Best Coffee Maker Ever!

Cnj6226 4/2/2019

I've owned a lot of coffee pots in my life: plain ones, fancy ones, expensive ones, cheap ones - out of all the ones i have tried this one is by far the best! First I love the sleek beauty of the overall look & design, it is so much more attractive in person than in the picture. It has a dark gray matte finish that allows it to blend with any decor. I love that the entire water tank is clear and easily lifts off with a handle for filling or cleaning, this makes the process super easy. It has a mesh basket in the top for coffee grounds so no need to buy filters, which is a huge plus. All the parts are easily removable for cleaning. It also has a separate setting just for cleaning the entire unit. All the settings are easy to operate. It brews great coffee quickly. I love that I can set it at night so I have a pot of coffee waiting on me each morning. Overall I love everything about this coffee maker and highly recommend it.

Heavy Duty Machine

Gram Evie 3/30/2019

This maker is very big and heavy compared to a regular coffee maker. It's rather large, but I'd consider it well-made. The water tank was hard for me to get my hand around. I wasn't able to lift the tank once I added water. It does make a very good cup of coffee though.

Love this Coffee Maker!!!!

ann's law 3/29/2019

I needed a new coffee maker. Looked at various makes and models. Found this one and purchased it. I liked the idea of a spiral showerhead releasing water in a circular pattern over all the coffee grounds. The coffee maker comes with a gold tone filter basket if you prefer not to use filter papers. The water reservoir is removable and easy to fill. Great for an office situation. I'm using mine at home. Looks nice on the counter. This unit is programmable. It has a bold setting. The best feature is it beeps when it starts brewing and beeps again to let you know when the coffee is ready. It has a keep warm function that automatically turns off after two hours.The clock on the coffee maker lets you know how much time is left. I usually turn mine off. It makes great tasting, hot coffee. I'm very happy with mine.

Interesting Design & Great Coffee!

Rbf2m 3/28/2019

I was very interested in using this coffee maker because of the unique design and the reusable filter basket. I have never owned a coffee maker like this one before, so even though I was initially intimidated, it was a breeze setting up and reading the instructions. It has very simple and easy controls to clearly prep for coffee now or at another time. I love the notch system in the filter basket to help me make just a few cups in the morning instead of wasting a whole pot, or if I have guests over to have enough for them all without overfilling or making weak coffee. There is also a bold button that my mother enjoyed on her visit here as she loves stronger coffee. It was extra nice setting the auto brew for the next morning for her as a super early riser and she didn't have to worry about how to use it. I love setting it for when I wake up to take my kid to school so I can grab a cup out the door without all the extra measuring and time management wasting. I filtered water through 4 times because I tend to taste the plasticky taste that coffee makers put off, and after 4 filter cycles I can say I don't taste the plastic at all and it is a very smooth brew. The warmer can get a bit hot for just a few cups so be careful in watching your pot if you just have a little bit left in the bottom so it doesn't burn. Overall I love the sleek design, the see through water reservoir, and how simple the machine is. Great coffee maker!

Simplify and a Great Coffee Maker

AlbertP 3/27/2019

Under the factory warranty KitchenAid sent this model to replace my defective one. Much more easier to use, slowly pouring with the 29 holes shower head, I can finally control my coffee maker! On and off at my will!

Very Easy To Use Coffee Machine

shaun11 3/26/2019

This coffee maker is great, and the coffee produced is rich and robust. The best feature of this is how easy it is to fill and how easy to see where the "fill lines" are. My old (competing brand) was horrible to see how much water you were putting in. Water container also removes so you can take it to the sink to fill then put back in, which is very awesome and convenient, It does take considerable more time than my last machine to brew, but I do believe you can taste the difference. You will want to use the auto program for mornings so you are not waiting around as it takes about 10 minutes to brew a 10 cup pot (will brew more). I gave it 4 stars on performance because of this but 5 stars overall!

Definitely the best coffee system I've ever used

Melissa212 3/24/2019

I've had the pleasure of using this coffee system for a week now. Let me tell you how impressed I am with the ease of adding the water as well as the coffee. You don't need to measure it out scoop by scoop! Just fill up to the predetermined fill line! Time saver-just pour it in! This coffee maker makes up to 12 cups. The spiral shower head drenches the coffee grounds completely, getting them ready to brew. The flavor is amazing! I chose the bold setting. The machine itself is pretty. It's a little larger than others I've owned but not too large that it didn't fit on my kitchen counter. You can set the timer to brew anytime. Auto shut off is also a feature. I'm in love with this coffee maker.

Pretty cool

Jems 3/23/2019

I think that this coffee maker is pretty cool. It's definitley an upgrade from my last one. The best features are the clear and removable water tank makesnit easier to clean and use.i like the shower drip as well I did think extracts more flavor from the coffee. The thing that I would change would be the measurement a on the inside basket I wish it had smaller than four cups but it is overall pretty good so far.

Leslieann3188 3/23/2019

I was very excited to start using my coffeemaker. It was incredibly easy to figure out how to use it. I love that you only put in the amount of water and coffee you want to use. The spiral showerhead helped make the coffee taste better. It is very easy to use and only takes a few minutes to get a great hot cup of coffee. It also has a warming plate to keep your coffee warm if you don't drink it all at once.

Excellent Coffee Maker

KatherineCoffe 3/20/2019

This coffee maker is everything that I thought it would be. The coffee is very good and is restaurant quality. It's very sleek and it is not noisy at all. I love the functions on it as well and you can make up to 12 cups of coffee. It is very hot and not warm when it comes out and you can adjust all of the settings with a simple click of a button. This is an absolute favorite of mine in the kitchen and I love it a lot. I definitely would recommend this.

Better Tasting Coffee!

nab165 3/20/2019

The Spiral Showerhead feature on the KitchenAid - 12 cup drip coffee maker thoroughly soaks the coffee grounds as it brews to provide you with the ultimate flavor of your coffee. This coffee maker features easy to use push buttons with a digital clock and timer display, a dosage ladder and chart for easy measuring of your grounds and water. The water canister is easy to remove and fill. I enjoyed the sleek silver design, the controls on the side offer easy functionality, but I did find myself pulling it forward on my counter to better see them while programming my desired settings. You have the option of bold or regular with this coffee maker. This coffee maker is great for brewing a couple cups up to the 12 maximum, and it has auto-shut off for added safety.

Love the Spiral Showerhead!

Simoriah 3/18/2019

I didn't expect that the spiral showerhead would make much of an improvement in my pot of coffee, but I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised at the improvement! My coffee saturated the grounds, and my coffee tastes better! Who knew?! The wide opening on the water tank makes it easy to fill & clean. I'm loving the design of this overall. It fits in with my kitchen decor beautifully. The dosage ladder & dosage chart make it almost impossible to brew the wrong amount. So pleased with this one!

Great Traditional Coffeemaker with a spin!

Nycole007 3/17/2019

I've had the chance to brew coffee in the KitchenAid coffee maker for the past 3 days. So far, from what I've observed and tasted I'm super impressed. One of the positives of this coffee maker is that when it's brewing it sprays water in such a way that the coffee beans are saturated with water which is probably why my coffee seems to taste richer than when I use my other coffee maker. I also love the fact that the coffee seems to be hotter longer as well. The reserve in the back where the water is held is big enough to brew a big, fresh pot of coffee that everyone can get a cup of. The actual coffee pot itself holds 12 cups. The reserve holds a max of 72 grams. The only downside to the coffee maker is that it's a bit bigger than my current coffee maker but that's not a bad thing. Overall I have enjoyed my new coffee maker. I think you'll enjoy the richer brew this coffee maker has managed to add to the world of coffee makers.

HellsAngel30 3/17/2019

I have owned many coffee makers, but this is by far the best one yet! The spiral showerhead really does give the coffee so much flavor! I love how I don't have to measure the amount of coffee I want to make using a tablespoon, the fill line really does take the guess work out of it. I never knew that coffee maker could really change how much more I enjoy my coffee. I l9ve my coffee and I love how I can get an amazing tasting cup right at home now with my new kitchenaid drop coffee maker with spiral showerhead. It's like a cup of flavorful coffee from a coffee shop, but I get it at home now. It so easy to use, no guessing or headaches when all you want is your coffee.

I received the 12 Cup Drip Coffee Maker with Spiral Showerhead to review. I am please to say that it brews my coffee piping hot. . I live how if it is still brewing you can pour a cup and it still stop. Once you return to the coffee maker it continues. No mess or burnt coffee. I will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Nice coffee maker!

MadChef 3/16/2019

I really like his coffee maker. The timer and clock are very easy to set. Using the coffee maker is also quite simple and the coffee tastes great! Everything I expect from a Kitchenaid product! Not to mention it looks great sitting on the counter next to my Kitchenaid stand mixer!

Great drip coffee maker, must have counter space

AAGolfer89 3/15/2019

This coffee maker is great for those who just want to make quality drip coffee. It was easy to set up and use, and the interface isn't complicated. Easy to clean and maintain as well. My only complaint is that the unit is fairly large and you must have a decent swath of counter space set aside for a coffee maker. Ultimately though, I'd recommend it if you like large quantities of good drip coffee

Such a great coffee maker!

Megan K 3/15/2019

We absolutely love this coffee maker. It is sleek, fits perfectly in our kitchen and doesn't take up too much space like previous coffee makers we have had. It's efficient and makes delicious coffee. I would definitely recommend!

Great coffee, easy to operate.

1 Oldman 3/14/2019

Several years ago I assumed the task of making the coffee in our house because I get up earlier than my wife. This coffee maker is by far the best one I've owned when I consider the quality of the coffee that it makes, the ease of use and the simple set up straight from the box. The carafe is well designed and does not drip like many other ones I've seen and used. I use paper cone filters in place of the brass filter screen provided with the coffee maker but that is my preference for ease of cleaning the brew basket. I make my coffee using the "Bold" setting so it takes a little longer to brew but the results are terrific. I only need to program the auto start time a little sooner to compensate.

Very attractive! Nice features.

Sister Mary Sunshine 3/1/2019

Makes good coffee. Difficult to put together with poor directions. Filter was especially difficult to figure out. Once we figured out how the parts went together, the rest was very easy. Engineers should design directions for "high school kids" rather than other engineers.
