Bought this unit yesterday. Set it up last night to make 8 cups of coffee. Did not use the program feature as we weren’t sure exactly when we would be getting up. This morning I went into the kitchen to turn it on manually. I found 3 of the 8 cups of water had leaked out onto the counter. Never used it and it’s already broken. I’ll be taking it back to where I bought it for a refund today. Another thing I noticed while setting it up – you can’t separate the lid from the carafe. Not too good for cleaning.

Love it! It is the best coffee maker we have ever had. The Crafe is non spill. A++++

We have had coffee makers by Krups for years, but this in the “poorest” model they have ever produced. Luckily this morning (Saturday) I got up earlier than usual and found the pot running dry. We don’t set up to run automatically on the weekends. This is a real fire hazard. The problem stems from controls that are very hard to see and understand, especially for older people. The run function and the timer are on independant controls, and you must set both off instead of just one like the older models. The contributing factor is it not having an always lit LED display. It only comes on for a couple of minutes and then dims. Thus you can never see what functions are running. We also have a small puddle on the counter in the mornings where we have filled the reservoir the night before. I’m sorry I ever bought this thing and I’m done with Krups. Now I’m off to look for a replacement with a different brand. Hope this helps some of you make your decision.

Sincerely,

A very unhappy Krups coffee maker owner!

I’ve been a big supporter of Krups Coffee makers for more than 20-years, but this latest offering was pure garbage. The ergonomics of opening and closing the filter chamber felt cumbersome and the indicator level was always challenging to read (multiple bubbles formed inside). I literally had to use a flashlight to read it! Even worse, the coffee (Starbucks, I might add) tasted terrible. I had to dispose of my new Krups in the rubbish and buy a Cuisinart. Talk about a brand image self destructing!

Bought this to replace a Braun that died. Nothing works right–it overflowed until I took the filter out, coffee not hot, turns itself off and if it does you can’t get it to warm the pot again. Hard to program, not intuitive, fussy about the grind of the coffee. I have this in the garage and have ordered another Braun.
