The KitchenAid 12-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker comes equipped with a host of innovative features, making it a great choice for the home. Catering to ever-changing needs and user preferences, this coffee maker gives you the option of alternating between regular and bold brew strengths. Once you’ve made a pot of coffee to your liking, the KitchenAid 12-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker can even keep track of the time that has eclipsed since the brewing cycle was completed; pay attention to the digital display and you won’t accidentally drink day-old coffee!

Even though this KitchenAid coffee maker has a large 12-cup capacity, it features a designated 1-4 cup setting, so you can brew smaller drink volumes without sacrificing coffee flavor. The thermal carafe has been thoroughly insulated to minimize post-brew heat loss. If you’re looking for a convenient, well-rounded machine, consider the KitchenAid 12-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker; it is available in your choice of Onyx Black or Contour Silver.

The KitchenAid 12-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker has a powerful 1100-watt heat pump and electronic temperature controls to deliver consistent brew temps. The thermal carafe has a 12-cup capacity, but if you only need to prepare a small volume of coffee, prevent waste and preserve the flavor and aroma of your beverage with the 1-4 Cup Feature. Choose the desired strength, using the Variable Brew Strength Selector (regular or bold) and you’ll have a custom cup of coffee. This KitchenAid model is also equipped with a Pause-and-Pour Option, which will let you stop the machine mid-brew and pour a quick cup of coffee. Additionally, you can set the Automatic Brew Timer to activate the brewing process and prepare fresh beverages any time of day.
