Best Deal Around
Making World Class Coffee is a dream with this machine. There is nothing that compares to fresh brewed coffee from fresh ground beans! We are on our 5th one of these in about 7 years. In 3 of them, the water heater failed and the grinder failed in the other one. They all lasted anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. The 5 year warranty is what makes it a good deal. Only once did I have trouble finding a replacement, but they are now readily available. Hang on to your receipt and warranty book and when it fails take it back to any Sears and swap it for a new one with a new 5 year warranty.

Works great at first, then stops unexpectedly
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.

Amazing Machine!

I owned the Cuisinart burr coffee grinder and brewer (only sold online only now at $169). While I liked it, it was not easy to clean and I did have to replace it twice. I decided that I would switch to the Kenmore Elite for several reasons: Better design, all-stainless, easier to clean, 5-year warranty and 1/2 the price. This coffee maker beats out Cuisinart's by a mile. Not only is it much easier to clean (no mess like the Cuisinart model), it is completely stainless steel, has more settings and has a much better coffee pot...pours without losing a drop. It also fits under my cabinet, unlike the Cuisinart model. The coffee is DELICIOUS. And I got in on sale for 1/2 the price of the Cuisinart. And the grinder is quieter. I can't say enough about this machine!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So far good!

We were in need of a new coffee maker. For the last 10 years we have owned 4 cusinart's burr grind & brew. After this last one we decided to not spend $200 and gave this one a try! So far it's good for the price!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great product for the price

I bought this one as a clearance from sears' local advertisement. Stainless steel, quite a big one, grinder included. Great machine for home use. Hopefully the issue described by others won't come to mine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Keep your receipt!

First let me say I LOVE this coffee maker. That being said, you should know they only last about a year. This is my second one, and I made a point of keeping my receipt on this one after the first one died. It has a 5 year warranty! I'm off to my local Sears to get it replaced tonight.

awesome machine!

Was about to purchase a cuisinart brew and grind but stumbled upon this model instead. Glad I did, this Kenmore model is quite a bit less money and has all the same features. Since it takes a cuisinart charcoal filter replacement my feelings is that it actually is manufactured by cuisinart for sears. We have had BUNN coffemakers for years now and had a cuisinart burr grinder we ground our own beans with. Well after 7yrs our grinder quit and in searching for a new one I found out about these new coffeemakers with a built in grinder. I did a lot of research, and admittedly this unit does not get the best of reviews but I weighed out the good with the bad plus the 5yr warranty. So, I am in hopes that the problems I read in older reviews have been addressed by the manufacturer. Also, in the event we have trouble the 5yr warranty will cover us. So this unit being less expensive, same features but the added benefit of a 5yr warranty had us sold. I must say we are enjoying it so far and it makes a very good cup of joe. You can adjust to your taste by adjusting the grind, the strength feature or amount of water. Really cool machine and the timer is very nice to have fresh coffee waiting when you wake up! Also, it is a really nice looking appliance. For those that say the grinder is loud, well its a grinder! But I must say that our old grinder was much much louder than this one so to us its quiet considering other grinders on the market. If your looking for a coffee grinder a burr grinder is the best type of grinder for coffee. Other versions have grinders but not burr grinders. This unit has a burr grinder. I just hope sears is still around in 5yrs from now in case we need a warranty replacement!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Grinder stopped working properly

Great

Chose this model because of the raves about the warranty. I'ts loud when grinding but I don't find that to be a problem. The coffee is the best I've ever had! We only use the grind and brew feature. Wish you could get a stainless steel thermal carafe for the unit, but the coffee is plenty warm enough even at the shutoff point.Use the brush, keep it clean!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Thank goodness it has a 5-year warranty

About to purchase my third brewer. The first was returned about 18 months after purchase because grinder stopped working. The second is being returned today, after one year, because the water won't brew. Like the other reviewer said, good thing it has a 5-year warranty.

Scorched coffee

I actually really like this coffee maker, however about 35 to 45 minutes after brewing the coffee becomes scorched and I have to throw it out. I brew Starbucks coffee which is pretty expensive so I'm tired of wasting so much money. I work from home and enjoy drinking coffee for the first couple of hours of my workday, I could do this with my previous coffemaker with no diminish of taste but with this one, my first two cups are great but it becomes undrinkable after that. I think a thermal carafe would solve the problem, however Sears doesn't offer one for this coffee maker. I even went as far as buying a different brand thermal carafe but unfortunately it did not fit. I'm returning the coffeemaker.
