    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A handsome unit which appears to be well designed.
    Cons: None of any significance.

    Summary: Several weeks ago, I purchased an Empire Red KCM534 from Lowes as a replacement for a KitchenAid KCM515, which delivered a small volume of tepid coffee in its stainless steel carafe and had overflowed on to my counter top one too many times. Given that, ... read more

    Kitchenaid' Ridiculous Extended Warranttee Offer

  • EASY to avoid any overflow problem -it's a good coffee maker!

    Dec 26, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes good-tasking coffee, and quickly!
    Cons: If making larger amounts, must use paper filter AND gold basket.

    Summary: If you are having an "overflow" problem when making larger amounts (8-14 cups), simply --> PUT A PAPER FILTER INSIDE THE GOLD BASKET.  <--That's all you need to do!Like some other reviewers, I also had the "overflow" problem ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Keeps coffee hot for hours after you brew it
    Cons: Coffee will spill all over counter unless carafe centered exactly in center

    Summary: I decided to spend the extra money for a KitchenAid. I like this coffee maker for the most part. I did have a problem the first few times I used it though. The coffee spilled out all over the counter while it was brewing and made a huge mess, even ... read more

  • Not the Kitchen Aid we know!!

    Pros: Looks great and is compact in design
    Cons: It says Kitchen Aid but I think its a wolf in sheep's clothing! JUNK!

    Summary: Update: 3/31/2008 - Okay, now I am more than a little upset. This weekend while cleaning the kitchen I noticed that my all white coffeemaker is now turning a tan at the hot plate area and the decanter is stained and I can not get it clean even with ... read more

    Pros: tasty while it lasted
    Cons: didn't last long enough for price and filters are expensive too

    Summary: I must say this coffee pot has turned me against anything Kitchenaid and I need a new fridge! I have had the pot less than 2 years and more than the 1 year warranty. A $100+ coffee pot should last more than 18 months!!! ERR2 and ERR4 and none of the ... read more

    Pros: Brews a good cup of coffee when working.
    Cons: Electronics are lousy.  Not reliable.  If it wasn't for the warranty, I'd be pi__ed.

    Summary: Bought this unit at Target.  Took it home -- displayed ERR2 message and wouldn't work.  Took it back and got another one.  Within less than 6 months, displayed the ERR2 message again and wouldn't work.  Called up KitchenAid and they ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice on your counter.
    Cons: Not a quality product. Mechanical errors.

    Summary: I was very happy with this coffee maker for the first year I had it. Then, on Christmas Day it stopped working with an 'error 2' message. When I contacted the company through their customer service line and also by written letter I received no help and ... read more

    Pros: Large pot capacity, 14 cups
    Easy to fill
    Carafe pours very smoothly
    Cons: Design is a little squat and dumpy.
    No exterior view of water level.

    Summary: I replaced a Krups KM1000 Stainless Steel 10-Cup Coffee Maker that I had for less than 6 months with this KitchenAid and I am extremely satisfied with the switch. While the design of the Krups was what attracted me first, the poor user design that led to ... read more

  • Poor Quality -- ERR2 Message

    Nov 1, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Looks nice. Perceived to be high-end. Will add social cache to house parties.
    Cons: Best to have a designated driver ready to go to Starbucks

    Summary: We have had this coffee maker for a little over a year and given that we paid ~$90 for it, I'd frankly have expected it to last a little longer. Just goes to show you that KitchenAid may have built up a good brand reputation, but the brand certainly ... read more

    Pros: Great product when it works. Overall design is well thought out.
    Cons: Serious quality control issues with the electronics. Death, taxes and Err 2.

    Summary: This could be a really nice coffee maker... if only it would last. I just went through my third one. First one lasted 6 mo. before exhibiting intermittent Err 2 failures and then it finally bit it. The second one lasted 30 days and the most recent ... read more

    Pros: Looks good.
    Cons: Leaks, and electronics are off.

    Summary: I paid a little extra to get a better coffee maker (the KitchenAid cost $100) but the first time I used it, it leaked all over my counter and the "clean" light went on. This piece of junk is going back and I won't give this company a second ... read more

    Pros: Nice to look at
    Cons: Coffee isn't hot

    Summary: Our coffee maker died just before Christmas so we purchased this coffee maker because of the nice looks and the name. We have yet to have a hot cup of coffee from the thermal container. The program works wonderfully but if you don't get up before the ... read more

    Pros: nice appearance, sturdy, programmable
    Cons: Faulty electronics, carafe must be centered when operating or coffee will spill out on counter

    Summary: We loved this unit...until it failed. We are returning the KCM534 after 22 days because it repeatedly displays err2 or err3 on the digital display. We are impressed with the Kitchenaid replacement warranty but wish the coffee maker would have just ... read more
