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.
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!
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!
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.
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.

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.
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.
