brews at 195 degrees low cost compared to others that brew this hot
Negative Product Points
cost 30 bucks at dmart and amazon kevin sinnott in his coffee book mentioned the fact that this coffee maker brewed at 195 for most of the brew cycle and that the brew cycle was within guidelines set by the specialty coffee association. it also evenly wets the grinds. so in need of a coffee maker as it was too much of a hassel to use my manual drip melitta set up i purchased this coffee maker i am pleased with the performance and can detect no discernable difference between the auto drip coffee maker and the manual drip process i was using. it‘s hard to find a coffee maker that brews hot enough so i am glad to share one that is relativly cheap compared to the bunn or technivorm. it makes 22 ounces at a time and the instructions say you have to wait 5 minutes between pots. it comes in 4 or 5 different colors if you are concerned with matching the decor of your kitchen the warranty states that if the coffee maker fails kitchenaid will send a new one and arrange to pick up the faulty one postage-free. by the way the cord is three prong so you might need an adapter if you don‘t have a 3 prong outlet
