Customer Reviews

12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe in Contour Silver is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 107.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coffee maker. At first I didn't like the coffee maker. Now, after using it for about 6 months, I think it's the best coffee maker we ever had. It's a little complex in setting things up but after getting use to the maker it is simple. And the last thing is that it makes a great cup of coffee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I found using this coffee maker very frustrating and cumbersome. The stainless carafe cannot be filled from my refridgerator's filtered water spigot nor can the removeable water tank. This means I have to fill the water tank with a separate pitcher. The lid of the carafe is difficult to remove/attach and when trying to pour coffee, only a trickle streams out. The inner rim of the carafe is about an inch wide and doesn't allow me to pour out the last 1/4 cup of coffee without removing the lid, turning the whole carafe upside down and shaking it. Obviously, this cannot be done over the cup, it has to be done over the sink. I also think the menu is more than it has to be.....keep it simple, KitchenAid! I prefer my $39.99 Black & Decker coffeemaker!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Coffee Pot Ever!!! it went out with the gargage this m I have never had a coffee pot perform so poorly. The coffee was great - when it made it in the pot. I have been struggling with this pot for a few months now, thinking I was doing something wrong. It is a coffee pot - not rocket science. I am so tired of cleaning coffee off the counter top. If you do not put the carafe in exactly the right position - with handle all the way to the right, it leaks. Other times it overfill the basket and ours along the outside of the carafe. If you don't pour the first cup over the sink, that spills too. The coffee sits in the lid of the carafe. it is an epic fail on the part of Kitchenaid. I have never been so disappointed in a product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The product looks good. I purchased this thermal coffee maker October 2013. 1. to have hot coffee for longer periods of time; works thus far. 2. not having to leave on hot plate. 3. Looks; matches kitchen theme. However, I had know idea that I would be cleaning up coffee spills/leaks, etc. every other day. It's like the coffee misses the hole in the lid of carafe; losing about 1/4-1/2 cup coffee each time. cannot fill water reservoir above 9-10 cup mark; that's when it seems to leak more. also lose 1/2 cup or so b/c all the coffee does not pour out unless you remove lid and hold upside down; this thermal carafe is heavy. I'm very disappointed to say the least.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It looks good We really loved the look and the name KitchenAid of this appliance but the thing leaks because the carafe lid sometimes does not let the coffee flow through and instead goes all over the counter. About 8 out of 10 times this will happen. My wife places the coffee maker next to the sink for ease of clean up. If I was making the coffee every morning, I would have thrown it out by now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coffee maker We are happy to have a 12 cup coffee maker that has a thermal carafe. The coffee is still hot 6 hours after it's brewed! The only hang up is the leaking of the coffee as it is brewing occasionally. We discovered if you don't fill the water dispenser all the way to the 12 cup line, it is fine. We are happy with this product.
