Krups Coffeemaker is attractive and programmable, with all sorts of unique bells and whistles, but is it the one for you?
Krups FMF5 10-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker with Thermal Carafe is a 10-cup fully programmable coffeemaker that comes complete with a thermal carafe to keep your beverage at the perfect drinking temperature for hours.
With 1100 watts of power, it comes with a bright blue LCD clock/timer display, a one to three cup aroma switch that maximizes the flavor of the coffee, and thermal vacuum carafe that is made of stainless steel with a no drip spout to make pouring of the coffee much easier. It also has a sixty-ounce water reservoir, a built in water filter and an electronic descaling indicator.
The ease of use of this coffeemaker is what people love about it. It brews up to ten cups of coffee quickly and efficiently. Push button operation that includes an on and off, which is a feature that many coffee makers do not.
It also offers the ability to stop in the middle of brewing and pour a cup of coffee. The Krups FMF5 10-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker with Thermal Carafe has an audible chime that lets you know when the brewing process is complete.
The sixty ounce water reservoir has a built in water filtration system. It has a soft eject filter holder that swings out so you can easily add ground coffee and a magnified water level indicator so you can see it clearly.
Elegant in appearance, the stainless steel and black coffeemaker is very attractive for any home. The programmable controls are placed right on the front of the unit at the bottom for ease of use.
The stainless steel carafe can leave the base of the coffeemaker and be brought right to the dinner table. Because of its thermal insulation, it does not have to be placed on warmer to keep your coffee hot.
The reviews that have come in from people that have purchased the Krups FMF5 10-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker with Thermal Carafe range from love it, to not so great. The all have said that it makes a great cup of coffee, and that it is very easy to use.
The biggest complaint is that the carafe does not keep the coffee warm at all, and that is the reason that most have purchased this coffeemaker.
The chime is very annoying to some, because it not only beeps to let you know that brewing of the coffee has been completed, but for almost everything else.
The fact that you will have to reprogram the coffeemaker after the third automatic cleaning is not popular amongst consumers either. This coffeemaker has received an overall rating of 2.5 stars out of 5 stars.
The Krups line of coffeemakers offers many other models and accessories to go along with them such as the Krups FME4 12 Cup Glass Programmable Coffeemaker, KM8105 Die Cast 12 CUP Krups coffeemaker, and Krups F4720057 DuoFilters, Two Pack.
It seems to be an average coffeemaker. If you are not looking for anything special and can get over the chime going off a lot, you should be fine with this.
The Krups Coffeemaker: a mixed review, but a coffee maker with some very good attributes.
