Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 59 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty & Reliable Clean machine, not gimmicky. Simple & easy to use. Carafe is comfortable to hold. Beeping and clock display are very subdued, so there is no heavy insistence in the kitchen from more technology. Fits under my small countertop, and brews hot. Light, but looks and feels substantial. Only downside is the measure markings for water reservoir on printed on a smoky poly tank…just dark enough that you are not staring at another set of numbers in the kitchen (background design styling is appreciated!), but just dark enough that it is tough to see the level of the water. I have learned to get over it, but I could see where that would be a nitpick. March 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by If you like coffee this makes the best coffee we have found. This coffee maker makes excellent coffee quickly and the coffee stays hot and fresh tasting for several hours due to the excellent performance of the carafe and the fact that the coffee is not continually being heated by a burner under the carafe. We used the previous model to this design for many years and liked it so much we went on-line to find this upgraded replacement when we needed another coffee pot. April 20, 2015

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nice appearance, horrendous design Add me to the list. It looks nice, but I'm surprised at the desperately flawed design and lack of usability. Have to pull it ALL THE WAY out to the edge of the counter to access the reservoir. The filter assembly won't open or close with the carafe in place. It takes multiple steps to turn the timer on. Finally, the carafe is constructed such that the user cannot pour the water or coffee out unless he/she turns the whole thing upside down. Kitchen Aid is usually a terrific company and they've been making countertop coffeemakers for years -- it's astonishing to me that they could get this one so very, very wrong. What a disappointment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Dream Come True Coffee Maker! Extremely efficient and highly functional for our busy kitchen. This coffeemaker is well made and attractive. The stainless steel carafe keeps our coffee warm for hours. We are so glad that we decided to try a Kitchenaid coffee maker. March 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best Coffee Maker I've ever owned! We've had our new Coffee Maker for about 2 months. It does have a few design glitches, but those were easily worked around by reading the previous comments of others (and of course, the manual). For some reason they designed a carafe for this machine (which makes 12 cups) that only holds 10 cups? As long as you know that and the fact that when you brew, you should turn the pot all the way to the right, so that the handle is against the right side, you should have no problems. Keeps coffee hot a long time. Filling the carafe with hot tap water just prior also helps. Makes excellent coffee! February 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great coffee This is my second Kitchenaid thermal carafe coffee maker and I love it. It makes the best coffee. I didn't realize how good the coffee was until I had to use a different coffee maker, when the first kitchenaid quit working (after about 8 years). I went on line immediately to find another one like the one I had for so long. March 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Has all the features Removable water tank you can fill at the sink. Thermal carafe that keeps coffee hot for hours without using electricity for a hot plate and won't break like glass. Easy to clean with easy to remove basket. We have been using it for a month every day, fill to 12 cup line and never had a spill. March 3, 2015
