Krups FME 4 12 Cup Coffee Maker
by Trina Mamoon
We have been buying Krups coffee makers for 10 years and the quality has noticeably gone down. Our first coffee maker lasted us for 6+ years. But after that, we have had to replace our coffee maker that costs about $100 every 3 years or so. The coffee pot handle comes loose, and you have to buy a whole new coffee maker because the store doesn't carry replacement carafes that fit our model. This last time we actually bought a second carafe at the same time as we bought the FME 4, and sure enough, the handle came loose on the original pot.
