KitchenAid Coffee Makers
KitchenAid coffee makers come in several types that suit the java consumption habits of those who just have to start their day with a freshly-brewed mug. The brand’s line of available coffee makers from Williams-Sonoma range from simple French press types for those who are always on the move, to more complex espresso machines for the fussier coffee enthusiasts. With diverse designs, functions and aesthetics, KitchenAid coffee makers are an addition on kitchen countertops.
An American brand that has been around since 1919, KitchenAid is popular for its diverse selection of low cost but high-quality kitchen appliances including its iconic stand mixer. Its coffee makers are no exception with quality performance and components at reasonable prices. Among the standout features of KitchenAid coffee makers is their ease of use and intuitive design. One model, which has a siphon brewing system, has an eye-catching globe design that allows users to watch with fascination as the water vapors circulate between the globe and the carafe.
More than just a modified version of a drip coffee maker, the KitchenAid siphon brewer also has convenient and useful functions such as temperature-controlled power system, LED indicator lights and premium glass construction with stainless-steel accents. Another filter type KitchenAid coffee machine adds a different twist to the drip type brewing systems. This particular model has precision timing for water temperature, precision control over the flow of water coffee grounds and even roast settings for a more flavorful brew.
KitchenAid also has an espresso maker that churns out high-quality espresso that does not break the bank. However, this particular coffee maker from KitchenAid requires Nespresso coffee capsules to work, which is rather restrictive. Regardless of this limitation, this espresso maker still has some desirable programs and produces high-quality brews.
Because of their simple design, KitchenAid coffee makers have simple cleaning and maintenance requirements. Some of them only need hand washing for both the carafe and the cloth filters within the coffee maker. In the case of the espresso maker, however, the appliance soon requires special cleaning using descaling and cleaning tablets.
When purchasing coffee makers, there are important considerations to keep in mind. These include the volume of coffee that the user requires per day, their ease of use and its size as the appliance often stays on the countertop. KitchenAid coffee makers also require a few accessories such as coffee ground filters and water filters. It is important to note that these coffee makers usually do not have a coffee bean grinding capabilities, which means those who wish to purchase a KitchenAid coffee maker do so together with a coffee grinder.
