KitchenAid KCM055 4-Cup Ultra Coffeemaker, Cobalt Blue

KitchenAid KCM055 4-Cup Ultra Cobalt Blue

Product Description

Despite its diminutive size, this KitchenAid coffeemaker brews full-flavored coffee. If your kitchen is tight on space, or you only need to make a few cups of java at a time, this is the ideal coffeemaker for you. Its advanced brewing system's extra-long heating element ensures water reaches the optimum brewing temperature before passing through the ground beans: the result is richer coffee. Its warming plate has an expanded-contact element that distributes heat evenly across the plate's surface, so coffee does not overheat and keeps its flavor longer. And, for those of you who are in a rush in the morning, the automatic pause-and-pour valve allows you to pour your first flavorful cup without waiting for the entire pot to brew. --Marcela Broussard

Beware the Dribbler!, August 18, 2001
RacerX (JAX, FL)
I have to admit that I didn't have exceedingly high expecations for this coffeemaker because of the reported dribbling. I decided to give it a try because it's really (at the time) was the best 4-cup unit out there, plus it's "kitchen-aid"--for whatever that's worth.
The maker part is very good. Lighted switch, heavy-gauge elec. outlet w/3-prong plug is a definite plus. Especially since the water tends to dribble when pouring into the brew reservoir.
Pluses: - Quick brew time (7-10 minutes full pot) - makes "good tasting" coffee - attractive appearance in a variety of colours (if that matters to you) - solid electrical ( other) construction. Definitely not Black Decker
Minuses: - the dribbling. And no, I'm not *that* uncoordinated. - no auto-shutoff - gold (permanent) filter should be standard - basic design of the plastic carafe lid.. especially when it "catches" the pour-stop valve.. ends up making more of a mess because the.

Bought one for my Mom who makes a pot for one every morning. No timer but it is simple, she says it makes good coffee and the size is perfect. Compact so it takes very little counter space.

This is a smaller caraf so you have to pour slowly so that you don't dribble.
Brews a great cup o joe! Very easy to clean and cordinates well with other kitchen items!
All around an awesome coffeemaker for the smaller kitchen.
