Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Leaks water

Dave 9/26/2017

I bought this coffee maker on the 2nd of June, 2017. Last week water began leaking from the back through the bottom where it is stored. We are disappointed because generally your products are reliable, but this one gave out before even 3 months had passed.

GREAT Coffee Maker

Bill 33122 9/19/2017

I purchased this machine when my 2 yr old Cuisinart stopped working. This was a great investment as it has all the necessary features and somehow brews the coffee at the exact time, even if the electric had gone off and back on in the night. I wish there was a stainless carafe to keep it hot all day.

Great coffee maker, but...

Mark 8/20/2017

I recently bought this coffee maker based upon a tremendous number of positive reviews and the Kitchen Aid reputation. The coffee maker is very easy to use and as others have commented the coffee does taste much better than my previous coffee maker. But....I wish I had known that the lid for carafe is not able to be removed for washing. This makes it awkward to wash and when it breaks then the coffee pot will be rendered useless.

excellent coffee maker

Caffeine-Fiend 8/16/2017

This coffee maker makes great bold tasting coffee in 20 minutes, which is no problem because you can easily set the timer the night before for that morning cup of java. The design is definitely KitchenAid and looks so modern. There is absolutely nothing about this coffee maker that I do not like, and believe me I have gone through all of the better brand coffee makers. Thanks for a wonderful product!

Going for 10 more years!

Bond...James Bond 8/11/2017

We owned a Kitchen Aid coffee maker for over 10 years (3 pots a day ) prior to our new Kitchen Aid model. Like this one even more! Fast, quiet and better flavor yet. Hotter burner and larger capacity. Brews 12 cups nearly as fast as our old 10 cup. Love all of our K.A. products! Highly recommend the full product line to anyone! Can't beat the quality.

Was great until leaking started

Matt 8/7/2017

I bought this coffee maker 6 months ago and one morning I woke up and found it leaked half the water I had in there for auto brew through the bottom of the coffee maker. Not sure why this happened but I believe I deserve a replacement because things shouldnt break in 6 months especially when you pay over 100 dollars for them. What a waste of money.

NO replacement available for Carafe

Ronnie 7/8/2017

I bought this a month ago because of the design. The only problem is that the glass part of the carafe seems very cheap, thin glass and not sturdy. While washing the carafe I bumped it with the sink wall and glass broke easily. I tried ordering a replacement part ...but they don't have it.... they tell you they do have it but not in stock right now. And don't have an ETA as when will they get some in stock.

Easy Peasy Coffee Maker

CaliCoffee Lover 5/25/2017

My Cuisinart coffee maker actually caught on fire and that company only offered me a 20% coupon to purchase another one of their products. Not the response I was looking for so I decided on a different brand. Glad I did. This Kitchenaid works great. Easy to fill the water tank and the coffee is yummy and stays that way for 2 hours after it brews. I like the different look of it. Less boxy than the usual makers...I am happy with my purchase.

MWC 5/9/2017

Been using daily, great looking coffee maker. Disappointing that warming plate burns coffee within minutes of brewing cycle completion. If I turn warming plate off after brewing, coffee is cold within 10-15 min. Was hoping there was a thermal carafe available to buy that could work with this brewer, but I don't see one.

Picky shopper 2/18/2017

LOVE LOVE this coffee maker.... it's been the best one yet. It's so easy to use and love the auto timer to have your coffee brewing for you when you get up in the morning. And because of the filter it makes the best tasking coffee ever. It's also has a strong brew button which is great for when you need that extra KICK in the morning.

Love this coffemaker

Katydid47 2/14/2017

Have had this coffemaker since November...makes a great cup of coffee. Use the programming feature everyday because I love waking up to the smell of fresh coffee brewing. Also like the feature of being able to pouring a cup while the coffeemaker is still brewing. My coffeemaker does keep my coffee hot, I only make what I need, so the fact it turns itself off after two hours is not an issue for me. My only complaint is finding a water filter for this coffee maker. I was told by Kitchen Aid that filter size KCM22WF (I was tofd this by Kitchen Aid customer service that this would be the correct size) and it is not..I have spent a total $16 plus dollars on the wrong size water filter, so I am a little bent out of shape over that. So Kitchen Aid, do you even make a water filter that fits this machine? Other then that this machine fits under my cabinets and looks great on my kitchen counter.
