My Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker makes me feel like I have a maid every morning. I set the timer on the Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker and wake up to a fresh hot cup of rich smelling coffee everyday. It is the small things in life that can make you happy. The Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker takes coffee to a whole new level. You make coffee just about how you would in any automatic coffee maker, but the features of the Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker are what make it so special. You can program this coffee make to keep you coffee warming for as little as one hour to as long as five hours. If you know you might forget to turn the heating element off this is a great feature you. A beeping noise alerts you when your coffee maker is turning the heat off.
The Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker also has a stainless steel filter holder with resists mold and bacteria. Stainless steel is one of the safest and most bacteria resistant surfaces for cooking in your kitchen. I am notorious for leaving the filter filled with wet coffee grounds in the coffee maker and letting it get moldy while I am out of town. The stainless steel filter eliminates any worry that I haven’t gotten rid of any invisible bacteria.
My favorite feature of the Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker is the dual water filter system. I have moved cities before and the water never taste the same. Odd tasting water loaded with sediment can ruin perfectly good coffee beans. I have even lived in cities where you can smell the city water in your coffee while you are drinking it. The dual water filter eliminated smells and tastes that will remind you that you are not in your hometown anymore.
One of the most useful features of the Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker is its ability to stop dripping coffee if you are in a hurry to grab the pot of coffee before the brewing has completed. Standing around and waiting for the coffee to brew can take forever when you are in a hurry. With the Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker each time you remove the coffee carafe the dripping will stop until your replace it. If you are notorious for brewing coffee and then getting to busy and forgetting it is there the Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker offers an audible signal that beeps and lets you know your coffee is ready. I can hear the beep all the way upstairs while I am working.
All of these features truly make me feel like I have a maid in my kitchen preparing fresh coffee, reminding me it is ready, and turning the coffee maker off when I am finished. The Krups 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker is definitely an upgrade from the four cup cream and brown colored coffee maker I had in college! All the parts are dishwasher safe as well.
