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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Suzy Sunshine Great for one person
I bought this recently because now I live alone and did not need my big percolater. It is the perfect amount for me....2 cups. But, since I don't use it as a travel mug, but for use at home, I wish instead of shutting off when finished, that it would keep it warm. Small problem only.

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 5 out of 5 by Rich Good coffee maker
I have had this coffee maker for about 2 weeks and I am very happy with my purchase. The coffee maker looks good on the counter and makes a very good cup of coffee. I like to make a stronger cup of coffee than some people and when you have the ability to add a little more coffee to the filter you can make it to your liking. I would never have a Kuerig because you are limited to the amount they put in those k-cups. If you want a good looking coffee maker that makes a great cup of coffee than this is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Cook A Great Two-Cupper!
We've had this personal coffee maker for a year and use it daily. It quickly makes a great ready-to-go cup or two of coffee. It has mostly replaced our brew pot. It doesn't take up much space and is well constructed. Good job Kitchen Aid

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jelly Everything That Glitters Isn't Gold
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 PJ Best Coffee ever!
I love this coffee maker - I am the only coffee drinker in the house so a larger carafe didn't make sense.... and, this stays HOT - i put hot water into the cup before I make it and it stays even hotter. Its great and the coffee is tasty. My mom liked it so much that she bought one for she and my dad - they just share a cup while the next one is brewing! Thank you Kitchen Aid - you are all over my kitchen!

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...
