Have run it every day without fail for over a month. The metal filter works well; however, you will get some coffee grounds at the bottom of the pot/cup. Not too many!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sookiesmom THIS IS 'BETTER' THAN MY TOP-RATED CUISINART
This is the best coffee maker, although I've only being using it for a few days. I like top-quality in my counter top appliances. For many years I've used my Braun... and thought Its time to upgrade to a new one that is the #1-rated coffee maker on all the review sites, which is the Cuisinart DCC-1200.... well.. I bought it a year ago and my husband & I "still" hate it! I cant believe that its #1, and we cant believe that anyone would want a coffee-maker thats soooo annoying to use. I have a LONG list of cons for the DCC-1200! ***BUT THIS NEW KITCHENAID KCM222 IS WONDERFUL*** so far!!! It easy, works well, nice clock with 'other' nice read-out information on the clock, like: the brew strength, coffee temp, the time 'elapsed' since brew was finished, etc... and a very EASY removeable water-res. or you can fill-it without removing the resevoir. I could "line-up" all three of my coffee-makers and this would rank #1 !, and my 13 year old Braun(no longer made) would rank #2, `and the Cuisinart dcc-1200 ...last place for all its antiquated inconveniences.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kk60 Nice looking lots of features
I haven't had a new coffee maker in a long time and never one with so many features. I like that you can program it to brew at a certain time.I also like the filter basket and that you can change the strength of the brew. The removable water container is easy to fill on or off. The only things I don't like is the stainless steel part in the front where the brew basket goes. It gets smudgy and full of fingerprints. I think it should be that matte finish that's on the rest of the coffee maker. I also don't like the condensation in the pot after it brews. All and all it has been good so far. Makes good hot coffee.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Barb100 Disappointed
I have had issues with this coffee maker since I got it....It worked great the first couple times but then had a little hiccup and that has continued. It makes great coffee once it starts but I always have to adjust the carafe to make it go. I'll push the on button and wait a minute and 90 percent of the time I have to raise up the carage and let it fall again or just jiggle it a little bit....very frustrating as I love the look and design...just wish it would work better.....I didn't keep the box....assumed it would work well....and so can't take it back. Anyway, the price was great and I would give it 5 stars if it would just brew the coffee when I pushed the on button as it's a perfect size and it does make great coffee!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cpinion Problems after one year
Bought carafe style at first. Very sleek design to go with new stainless appliances but got tired of warm coffee and sent it back. Glass carafe was much better for hot coffee. Hinged brew basket door pops open during brewing. You can close it ten times and it pops open 10 times. After about 13 months it has begun taking 55 minutes to brew 12 cups. After multiple cleanings, even with a tooth brush, we have gotten it down to 45 minutes. Guess I'll go back to Mr. Coffee.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by timmy42483 My coffee maker looks good and makes great coffee everytime!
This coffee was designed very well for "looks". the major concern I have with it is the fact that I have to pull it away from the wall every time to fill the water into the machine (a real design flaw). I enjoy that the timer was easy to set, and it has worked flawlessly every time. Kitchen made products all have great colors, and I enjoy that my new coffee maker matches my kitchaid mixer. Awesome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vgmoss Replacement coffeemaker is greatly improved!
The first coffeemaker had a defect that let the filter basket come open after the coffee brewed. The replacement unit has a latch that must be pushed to open the basket -- a vast improvement. This is our 3rd KitchenAid over a period of years and each one has had newer and better features over the previous unit!
