Kitchenaid Java Studio 10 Cup Coffeemaker
KitchenAid Java Studio
Coffee Maker 10-Cup
About a year and a half ago, my husband and I decided to go with a red and black theme for our kitchen while registering for our wedding. We looked at several coffeemakers, but were completely blown away by the sleek look of the Kitchenaid Java Studio coffee maker in Empire Red.
We found that Kitchenaid's product looked like no other electric coffee maker on the market. It was in a bold red that fit our theme perfectly. The body of the coffee maker was hard red plastic that was styled to reflect a retro 1950's style. We never really expected to receive it as a wedding gift because it was very pricey (about $90). We were very suprised and pleased when we received our beautiful coffeepot!
As we started to use our new coffee maker, we found that it was incredibly easy to use. The buttons to program the machine were very straightforward and it was very easy to clean. Since most of the surface was smooth plastic, a damp rag was all that was needed. The top of the coffeepot was simple to open and water rarely went anywhere other than were it was supposed to go.
My only concern with the Kitchenaid coffee maker was that it made extremely hot coffee! I love a hot cup of coffee, but if the coffee sat for any longer than 30 minutes it started to taste burnt. To Kitchenaid's defense, there was an extremely helpful display on the front that would let users know exactly how long their coffee was sitting on the burner. Still, this coffee maker is excellent for those who only make enough coffee to use immediately. If someone is looking to find a coffee maker that they can drink from all day, this is not the machine for them!
Overall, this is the most beautiful coffee maker I have ever used. It works well, but has a few flaws. For my husband and me, these flaws were not enough to discourage us from buying another Kitchenaid.
