Built like a tank-inspires confidence right out of the box. Very Pleasing to the eye. Does what is says it will do, and does it very well.
Negative Product Points
Cheap plastic feel of the filter holder.
Started with a French Press, but wanted a larger volume for my thermos for work, so switched to a Melitta Pour Over and was very happy. But I guess I'm getting lazy and purchased the Technivorm. I always suspected this was the top of the line in electric drip coffee makers and I am not disappointed. Right water temp, right brew cycle time, you cannot go wrong. I have the new model (KGBT-741) without the drip modification settings on the filter basket holder. I give the grinds a stir about a minute into the process to assure even saturation (an optional step) and with a gold filter you easily have a french press like product in a volume for a thermos, in a hassle free manner. Is it worth the money...without question it is. This thing is a tank that according to the blogs will last for years to come. Only time will tell if the Bonavita and BraZen brewers turn out to be winners. Does the right water temp make that much of a difference in your morning cup...YES!! You get what you pay for in this life, and if you buy your morning cup from some store, the Technivorm will quickly pay for itself while at the same time giving you a better product. Take the plunge and go with a proven winner!
No problem. Expedited shipping available. Very well packaged. Delivered on time.

Excellent!! Would buy again without hesitation. I did not want to play the "let's wait and see game" with the bonavita and brazen, and I am so glad I purchased the Technivorm.
