Quick Reference Guide

* Documents require Adobe Reader.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Like some features my old coffeemaker did not have

Gail42 7/11/2019

Like this coffeemaker because of charcoal filter, small batch option and ability to use either permanent filter or paper filters.

Worked great...then a water mess

Chuck R. 7/5/2019

I bought this unit about 2 years ago. The unit worked great until one morning I came out to find there was water all over the counter, the floor, in my cabinets...EVERYWHERE! I found several reviews on the web to find that there are others that have had the same issue. I spoke with customer service as a failure like this doesn't seem like it should happen. They offered a a new unit for $79, which was 5 dollars off what I could get it for.. :| After seeing I was going to get anywhere with them, I decided to open up the unit and figure out what was wrong. As it turns out, there is a hose that brings the water to the head where the water is poured over the coffee. That hose had was not attached anymore. The hose clamp must have not been on tight enough and came loose. Sounds like a manufacturing defect as all other hose clamps in the unit were intact...and others are having the same issue. There you go Kitchenaid...you fix. Model: KCM12040B Serial: WF63028076

Premature Failure

Michael V 7/3/2019

Bought this coffee pot in 2017, kept it until my old reliable one failed after ~8 years. This KitchenAid model stopped brewing this morning...after 3 attempts, produced ~2 oz coffee. We cleaned the pot monthly and changed the filter every 2 months. UNACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE FOR A KITCHENAID APPLIANCE!!! They offered a $10.00 discount towards a new one of the same model or one with less stars. Really? No more KA for me…

Stopped working after 6 months

Pandathemom 6/25/2019

I really love the design of this coffee maker, and thought that it brewed a good cup of coffee in a decent amount of time. The two hour shut off was quite annoying, without a way to turn the warming plate back on if I wanted to. However, I could work around that by brewing smaller pots of coffee and drinking that pot within the two hour window. So overall I liked this coffee maker, but I unfortunately had the same issue that many others have had. After almost exactly six months my expensive (for me at least) coffee maker just stopped brewing. The buttons all work, and it makes lots of clicking noises, but nothing comes out. I attempted to run a cleaning cycle, thinking that maybe it needed a descaling, but I get the same clicking noises, and nothing brews. KitchenAid should discontinue this model and make some serious fixes, because it seems like a prevalent issue. I don't think that I will be replacing this coffee maker with a KitchenAid.

Great look

debbeyes 4/25/2019

Like the look of this coffee pot and the choice of regular or bold. The bold does take a bit of time but worth it. I will say, the inside of the pot seems to be getting stained a bit. I already had to soak with vinegar and baking soda. So far I am pleased.

Suddenly stops working just as warranty expires

Meems 789 1/27/2019

We bought this coffee maker a year ago. We've had no issues with it, it suddenly stopped working. And as luck would have it, our warranty just expired. This coffee maker is definitely not worth the money. Wehad a cheaper Mr. Coffee that worked for years. We need a new coffee maker and we'll definitely not be getting another KitchenAid.

I don't like this coffee maker

Sgg6 1/6/2019

We got this coffee maker over the holidays replacing a cuisinart model. I don't like it's design. The basket where the coffee grounds go swings out which makes it difficult to pull the used grounds out. It also has a handle on the basket which makes a mess when trying to dump the old grounds out. It doesn't give you much room to add extra grounds if you want stronger coffee. Instead it gives you the option to make "Bold" coffee. Which if that's what you select get ready to wait an hour for it to brew your coffee because it's very slow. The caraffe lid is very cheap plastic. The carafe handle is very small. You can hold maybe three fingers on it when pouring or filling with water. The compartment to fill is also in the back of the coffee maker so if you set the machine on your counter underneath any cabinets you have to pick up the entire machine. Move it forward. Fill it with water and then move it back. The Manual states you can pull the caraffe during brewing and pour a cup of coffee. Well you can. But the machine will continue to spit coffee everywhere when you do. The controls are also very basic. They are not as functional as I'd like them to be. You can't control the coffee burner. It stays on for I think 2 hours and that's it. It also has an alarm that goes off when brewing is complete. Except the first time you remove the caraffe it still dumps coffee all over the burner and counter. I just don't think this maker is very well made. I make coffee every day and would like my old coffee maker back but wife gave it away and now I'm stuck with this one.

Makes a great cup of coffee!

Sarah15 4/12/2018

I haven't had my coffee maker for long but I have been very impressed by the flavor of the coffee that it makes! We did discover that the carafe is fragile as it broke after having it just a few weeks. The kitchen aid warranty took care of it though. Overall it's a nice coffee maker.

Makes Great Coffee

Wayneo 2/7/2018

I think this is the best coffee maker we have ever had. It makes great coffee! The only thing I don't like about it is I brew 10 to 12 cups every morning, and after 2 hours it cuts off, which is fine, but there's no way or feature to cut the hot plate back on to keep the coffee hot. We drink coffee all morning but there's only a 2 hour limit on keeping the coffee hot, without brewing another pot. I've had much cheaper makers that had this feature. This cost triple the amount and one would certainly think you could cut warmer back on to keep what's in the pot hot.
