Flexible timer operations and highly configurable unit makes great coffee
Negative Product Points
Electronic parts unavailable to support repairs. Krups customer service not helpful. Krups contract repair service not helpful.
This unit is pretty flexible, but sadly, unrepairable if it has electronics failures.
If you can find one in decent shape, it's a good unit to have. It has carafe pre-warming, timer, heat select, adequate power levels (1100 W), programmable off timer, aroma control, and while not the highest quality unit that was ever made, it's damned good for basic operation.
Weak points include a thermal fuse that cannot be replaced once blown.
Email me if you have a broken or used one you want to dispose of.
Not much to report here. Vendor was a local kitchen shop in North Carolina.... since closed.
