About - Kalorik CM25282

The Kalorik CM25282 is part of the coffeemaker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker models like the CM25282 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Brew performance:
The ability to reach 195° to 205° F for five or six minutes, the industry standard for optimal brewing.

Convenience:
Reflects ease of filling the reservoir, placing the filter, gauging the amount of coffee remaining, and cleaning up. It also reflects how clear we judged the controls.

Carafe handling:
Covers handle comfort, tendency to drip while pouring, balance of a full carafe, and how easy it was to empty the last liquid. Models with no score here brew into single-serve cups or are brew-and-dispense models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

Comment:
After reading some reviews, I bought this coffee maker and there were two issues that made me return it. First, the reservoir opening is really very narrow, making it difficult to pour the water. Second, the carafe is hard to to pull out and put back onto the heating element.<br /><br />I'm staying with my Capresso MT-600.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Everyday use is 2-4 cups; more on weekends. A bit tough to fit the carafe into it's space and very hard to clean. The reservoir is really tricky to fill to the top as it's very narrow and wraps around the side of the machine. Programmable timer has worked well when used (which was rarely).
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
