Made of sleek black plastic with stainless steel accents, the KitchenAid KCM1203 is a 12-cup thermal carafe coffee maker will find a place in your kitchen in no time. The KCM1203 brews using a 1100 watt heating element and pump and a reusable gold-tone filter. In order to fully saturate the grounds for a more uniform extraction, the showerhead brew process has been refined to ensure better tasting coffee. If you're in a hurry or just can't wait for that first cup, you can pause the machine mid-brew to allow you to pour a cup of coffee. The aforementioned thermal carafe is easy to grip and features a no-drip pouring spout. The carafe can hold up to 12 cups and keep your coffee hot for several hours. The machine also features a handy "Time-Since-Brew" display that will alert you how long the current coffee has been stitting in the carafe for.
Additional brewing features include two separate brew strengths (regular and bold), a 1-4 cup brewing option for ideal extraction of smaller amounts of coffee, and a 24 hour programmable brew timer to ensure that your coffee is ready when you are. The front facing digital display is extra large and easy to read, featuring a clock and other display alerts. When not in use for 2 hours, the machine automatically shut off to preserve power.
