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!

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.
This coffee maker can accomodate paper or GoldTone Filters. If you choose to go with a GoldTone filter, maintenance is hassle-free since it can be washed in the top rack of your dishwasher. The KitchenAid 12-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker features a flat-bottom brew basket to allow you to uniformly distribute coffee grounds for even extraction.
The water reservoir is removable for easy refilling and maintenance; it uses a replaceable charcoal filter to eliminate water impurities.
