Rated 2 out of 5 by EmeraldsOnlyOnce Love Kitchen Aid but this item not so much...
I purchased this single cup coffee maker since I am a die hard Kitchen Aid customer. Every appliance I have is a Kitchen Aid, in Empire Red, so I have quite a collection of their appliances. I love their products which are well made and handle all you can throw at them.
This is the first time I have been sorely disappointed with one of their products. This makes the most bitter tasting coffee I have had the displeasure of trying to drink. No amount of water or spoon reduction or addition of coffee alleviates that bitter taste. I have followed instructions from their book and desperate to use this coffee maker I went and purchased their coffee grinder and coffee beans and set it to medium grind and results still produced bitter coffee. Nothing seems to work, not tap water, distilled or bottled water. This will remain on my counter as a decorative item and thats it. I make coffee the old fashioned way, on a gas stove in my trusty and never failing Farberware coffee pot.

On my way to return this product. It looks exquisite, in design, shape and form but it is not compatible with the K-cups, and makes the WORST tasting coffee. Not to mention, the mug it comes with, it is "NOT" stainless steel (For that price, it should have been). I own quite a few pieces of Kitchen Aide but this one disappointed me. Good try, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KP in Vt Far better than Keurig
This was a gift and at first I was dubious about a single serve but it truly fits my needs! Space is an issue for me but it is sleek and takes up minimal space. It makes excellent coffee, far better than the Keurig does! I love the gold filter and no plastic cups being thrown into the environment...

I so love my personal coffee maker!! I love the fact that I don't have to buy those expensive personal coffee cups. I don't drink my coffee very strong and this is the best product for me I can determine how much coffee I want to use for me and completely make it different for someone else that might like it stronger than I do. I think Kitchenaid did the best thing ever when they brought this fanastic item to the public.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grampa Jay Replaced my kurig
I have had it about a month and I am satisfied with it. The comments about difficulty reading water level are valid. I use a plastic bottle marked with a Sharpie to measure the amount of water I want. I have had no troubles with the metal filter basket included. I bought paper filters based on reviews I read prior to purchase but have stopped using them. The chime that signals the end of brewing cycle is next to inaudible, but I like that the machine automatically shuts itself off.
