I loved the look of this machine. The controls weren't as intuitive as you'd hope, but it made excellent coffee while it worked. Alas, like others have reported, the machine just died on me after about 8 months of daily use. Luckily, it has a 5-year warranty. I'm recommending this still since it has the 5-yr warranty. But if it only had a 90-day warranty, I would not.
This coffee maker quit working within 6 months, there are never any in stock to get a replacement! The absolute worse Kenmore product I have ever seen. Would not even get another except that it has a 5 year warranty and it cost a lot of money!
I've had this machine for about 3.5 years, use it 5 days per week and it is a great machine. I have noticed that at first it ground a LOT more coffee and over the years I've had to up the setting and I'm now at the maximum (12 cups--strong) and it is barely strong enough at that level. I rarely write reviews but was so surprised at the bad reviews here I thought I let you know of my experience.
I was given a Kenmore Elite Grinder and Coffee Brewer (100.94006) for Christmas 2011 and the unit has stopped working. Grinder works fine, but the heater does not turn on therefore the water is not brewed. I have only used filtered water in this unit from day one as well. I do not have a receipt as this was a gift, but it does have a five year warranty. I just left the Sears Store and they could not help me with this issue. I was told that I must have a receipt. What am I supposed to do now? I have purchased 2 additional carafes for this as I tend to break coffee pots while cleaning them. So now I have 2 coffee carafes ($50.00) and a coffee maker that will not work and Sears will not honor the warranty. Checking the online reviews on the Sears website, I found that this is an issue with these units. It would seem to me that Sears would honor a warranty ESPECIALLY when the issue is a KNOWN problem. I know what I am going to do......I will NEVER set foot into a Sears store again.

I've had two Elite 12's. The first was a gift; the second, I bought when the first began to mal-function. After eleven months, the second Elite also malfuntioned--no heat; no brew--NO COFFEE! Sears service proved to be the biggest dissappointment. I was advised to just buy another coffee maker--rather than try to repair the broken one. I am done with Sears' products.
We have now tried 5 (yes 5) of these in less than 2 years. Loved it at home so we got another for our vacation house. Worked great for 6 months, then suddenly stopped working. Would grind but not brew. Had a 5 year full warranty so Sears replaced it at no charge, only to have it happen again within only 2 months. Then the vacation house one did the same. Again replaced them both via the warranty, though the home one died again last month. Sears refused to honor the warranty despite having receipt and the packaging. Finally got them to issue a gift card. Our most recent vacation home one just died this week (took 8 months, probably because it was used daily) -- will try to return but not expecting much after the last fiasco.
