"We bought this KitchenAid coffee maker to replace our beloved Cuisinart one that we'd had for about 4 years. I was hesitant to switch brands but we've always had good luck with KitchenAid and so far, this coffee maker doesn't disappoint. I really like the removable water reservoir for cleaning purposes. It's generally easy to set for morning brewing (though admittedly, it took me a few tries to get it right - I did find the Cuisinart easier to set initially). I like the "bold" brewing feature. And I like the blue lit display.
All in all - this has proven to be a reliable, attractive, and overall solid coffee maker that I would recommend to others.!"
