Programmable Coffee Maker
Our old coffee maker had just broke and my husband gave me the KitchenAid 14-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker for my birthday to replace the on that broke. I did not really like how large it was but it was a gift so I had to keep it.
The design of the coffee maker is modern and I really like the stainless steel finish, it looks great in our kitchen an fits nicely under our kitchen cabinet. After one month the ability for the coffee maker to make coffee was diminished. Something about the way the basket that holds the coffee caused a back up and the coffee never entered the coffee pot.
Instead made it big mess with the coffee and coffee grinds spilling all over the counter top. Not what I was looking for first thing in the morning. I was able to return the coffee maker and exchange it only for the exact same coffee maker.
The new one has been working for 11 months now and the coffee maker has not had any major problems. However, if you fill the coffee basket all the way up to the top with coffee it will start to spill over.
So just because the pot holds 14 cups of coffee I would not recommend trying to make that much because the basket will not hold that much coffee without making a mess.
Overall the coffee that is brewed taste excellent, and the coffee pot keeps the brewed coffee nice and hot. All the controls are functioning properly on the new coffee maker and I just hope that it keeps on working because my warranty is expired.
