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 KLM46 Big hit with the Hubby!
Ordered this as a surprise for my husband, who lost his coffee maker last month to an electrical issue with his Krups coffee maker. Our entire kitchen is KitchenAid, and we have a full size KitchenAid coffeemaker at our home down south that is fabulous, so I decided to try this 2 cup model in our condo up north. We've had it for a few weeks, it gets used 3 - 4 times per day, and it works wonderfully. Hubby has hot coffee whenever he wants it. We do not need a lot of options on our coffee machine. This coffee maker has an auto shut-off, but not a lot of bells and whistles. If you need a clock and the ability to program your brew, etc... you will need to look at a different model. One item to note: measure your "counter to overhead cabinet" space, as this model is a bit on the tall side.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AtlantaGuy Lasted only 3 mos.
Makes a great cup of coffee, unlike the Keurig you can control strength of coffee since you're not using K-cup and less costly too.. Lasted only 3 mos. and went dead, Should have read reviews at similar stoires which talk about the coffee maker going dead and lasting only a few months . If they made thes right in the first , first place I would give 5 stars. until it broke down it was an excellent coffee maker.. not Kitchen -Aides usuall quuality.
