KRUPS KT611 Precision Programmable Thermal Carafe Coffee Maker Machine : Good one!

Works perfectly for those of us who love strong, rich coffee .

Laughably bad product design — makes great coffee, but it’s impossible to pour the water from the decanter into the reservoir due to the lid construction. Krups makes good products, but it feels like they rushed this out the door.

At this price point, i don’t think you can do better. Just got it today, and to ‘bottom line’ it, it makes excellent, hot coffee, which is kind of the point ofa coffee maker, i think. A lot of people seem to get hung up on various bells and whistles, and while this machine isn’t perfect (what is), it’scertainly a keeper. Yes, the area to pour the water into is a little cramped, but it’s not a big deal. You will need to use something else to pourthe water with, the carafe is too big. Again, this is kind of common sense, a 10 cup thermal carafe is by it’s nature going to be a bit unwieldy. This is a very well constructed, sturdy machine. You have to pay at least another $20-40 with competing brands to get this kind of quality. Cone filter, water filtration system,, large shower head, thermal carafe add up to make a great cup of coffee. People have mentioned that pouring the coffee is a little difficult, in that you have to kind of tip the carafe almost upside downto get the last bit out.

Several years ago while on vacation, the cabin had a krups coffee maker. I came home and purchased one like it. I liked it so well i purchased this maker on the krups reputation of quality. This is again a quality product from krups. I did have to remove the water filter screen at the top back of the brew basket so the water would fill more quickly. I also do not like the fact i have to pull the coffee maker, which is on top of my kitchen counter, out from under the above cabinets to open the top to add filter, coffee, and water. Other than these i like the coffee maker very well.

I had an older model but like the style of this one much better. A little awkward filling with water, but i’ve gotten used to it.

KRUPS KT611 Precision Programmable Thermal Carafe Coffee Maker Machine with Stainless Steel Housing, 10-Cup, Silver : Fits under cupboards and does a great jobi bought 2. I liked it so much i have another when this one is gives up.

I have had krups before and decided to buy another. I like this one only one thing i have a small issue. It is hardto see the #’s on the side to tell you how many cups you are making. Maybe different color light??.

Makes great coffee, carafe design a bit unwieldy but ok otherwise. I would buy it again, had krupps before andliked it.

Good quality machine, i like the fact it is not glass so will not break. I don’t like the filter for filling the water, the mesh is too small & it over flows during filling.

Like the krups brand very well. Have had three other krups coffee makers and liked all of them. Makes very good coffee and keeps it hot. Would have given it 5 stars except i don’t like the water level gauge. You cannot see it very well and can not measure like 3,5,7 or 9 cups.

I like this coffee maker but it doesn’t make the coffee hot enough and with the thermal carafe it doesn’t seem to have a warmer plate so after a couple of hours it’s just a little better than warm. I like my first few cups of coffee hot.

Makes 50 ounces of good coffee and keeps it warm without burning it or power. The fill indicator is a little hard to read in low light but works.

I wanted a thermal carafe and had good results from a krups i had used for more than 25 years. Love the ability to change program – very easy.

I chose the krups coffee maker because my previous coffee maker was a krups. I am pleased with the up dates that they made. I like the nonporous surface in side it resist coffee stains and makes it easy to clean. I fine the carafe very bulky and difficult to dispense from, especially empting the last cup. In fact the entire appliance is bulky. I read the reviews and found most were the same as mine. It is a quality product, and that’s why i purchased the krups.

Granted you do have to fill it with a pitcher because it would be awkward to pour water in the back corner of the coffee maker with the carafe. And you do have to take off the lid and turn it upside down to get the last of the coffee out. But the coffee is nice and hot even if i don’t warm the carafe and it makes very good coffee. However, my only complaint might be that the first several times that i ran just water through it seemed like it smelled an awful lot like hot plastic. (which is why i was ran it through at least 10 times with just water) and it still smells faintly of plastic but i don’t know how it could smell any other way when you run boiling water over all the inner workings that are made of plastic. It seems to do a very good job of getting the full flavor of the coffee out of the grounds. I’m definitely glad i bought it.

Purchased this to replace another krups that finally died after 10 years. On the first one we received the display did not work – and was replaced immediately (yay amazon). I also like having the filter for the water – our water is very hard and typically lots of sediment, so the filter helps with great taste. This makes great coffee, and i especially like the small-batch feature as i like my coffee very rich. The negatives:- water reservoir is not removable – would be a nice change. Also not especially easy to fill, but not a deal breaker. – the # of cups indicator is in a very inconvenient place (especially if you are vertically challenged like me), and hard to read. If it changed to a different color that would be more helpful. – quality is not quite as good as our first krups. I foresee the latch that is used for the top as the first thing to give out.

Makes the best coffee i have found (i expect this from krups). No burned flavor as we found in the cuisnart thermal model. Not as ‘user friendly’ as others – the fill indicator is inside the top and requires a well lit room to read; cannot use the carafe to fill the reservoir (design of the carafe and of the fill opening). But does make the best, just wonderful coffee. Worth putting up with the other issues.

Makes great coffee and keeps it hot for a couple hours after brewed. I am not a fan of the location to pour water in. This area needs to be a bit bigger and the lid gets in the way. This is my second krups thermal carafe coffee maker. I had it for several years and no issues until i dropped it on the floor and broke the plastic piece where it poured. I was forced to buy a new one. I hope that this model goes for as many years as my first purchase.

Fast shipping and good price. Really have to read directions to use properly or you will end up with a wet mess. Only thing i would suggest changing with this pot is that the water level indicator is so so difficult to see.

We are on our 2nd krups coffee maker. The first one lasted for a good long time. This one (kt611d50) lacks a few days of lasting nine months. Am hoping either amazon (we purchased it from amazon) or krups will kick in and replace the unit quickly. While it worked, it made great coffee. Programmed it so coffee was ready when we get up. Worked great, just not for very long.

Attractive appearance with adequate performance but i was very disappointed with the ridiculous indicator of water level. I was forced to measure the water separately to ensure accuracy and this is a permanent added chore.
