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.

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.

Carafe problem
Best Uses
The carafe would spill easily. Coffee spills. Water spills when putting into the maker. Had to use old carafe from old coffee maker that was not a Kalorik and now we can have no spills. Sad. It seems the spout hangs too low.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
Broke the very first time
Cheap Defective Design
Best Uses
We ran water through this coffee maker to clean it out right after opening the box and upon removing the carafe the handle came apart. We put it back together and then ran only 1/2 of a pot of water through the machine again and again, upon removing the carafe, the handle came off and the carafe fell onto the counter and shattered. We called the customer service number and were told that the carafe wasn't covered by the warranty and that they didn't know what happened and that we could have dropped the carafe for all they know. Terrible product and just as bad customer service.

Fast brew, poor heating plate build
Brews Quickly
Easy To Clean
Easy To Use
Best Uses
Daily user. Owned for over 4 years -- perhaps newer iterations received improvements, but here's the lowdown: 1. Brews quick, 2. Hot out of the pot early, 3. With the pot on the heat plate for awhile, coffee is not kept piping hot (evident when adding cream or flavored cream, coffee temperature drops so low you want to microwave it to get it hot again; 4. Does not add any flavor to the coffee! Cleaning takes multiple runs as the water holder is the back of the unit. My burner plate is completely rusted out so now it really doesn't heat the coffee. Great for first 2 years.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
