Pros:Coffee stays warm longer

Cons:Doesn't stay hot as long as they claim

The Bottom Line: I would buy it again.


We purchased this coffee maker approximately two years ago. The features we were specifically looking for were the Thermal Carafe and the programmable timer. The coffee maker has lived up to Krups good reputation and our expectations.

We use the automatic timer function almost every day. In two years, there has never been a problem. Waking up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee is just wonderful. The coffee does stay warm for quite a while. However, I would not agree with the manufacturers claim that it stays hot for up to five hours. In our experience, it stays hot for about two hours. After that, I usually warm it in the microwave. It tastes much better than coffee that has been sitting on a heating element.

The Thermal Carafe has another advantage – it saves us money. In our normal weekday routine, the coffee pot would be on for about two hours each time we made a pot of coffee. We pulled out the owners’ manual for our old coffee maker and figured out how much it cost us on our electrical bill. Figuring two pots a day and two hours for each pot, that meant that the heating element was on for four hours a day. Based on the electric rates we pay, that is at least $10 a month. This adds up. In less than a year, we covered the retail price of this coffee maker ($99.99).

However, we actually saved even more than that. We found a “re-furbished” Krups-209 at a local department store. We were told that “re-furbished” meant that someone had purchased it and then returned it - unused. Either they just didn’t want it (they just changed their mind) or, maybe the heating element had been defective and the factory replaced it. In any case, it came with all the original warranties. The price on this “re-furbished” coffee maker was $45.00.

After two years, we have had no problems with this purchase.
