Our 5 year old Krups crapped out a couple of days ago. As this was the second Krups that lasted 5 whole years, I'm beginning to think that Krups has built in obsolescence in their coffee makers. I took the opportunity to run to Williams Sonoma to pick up a Technivorm Moccamaster, but as luck would have it, they were out of stock. That forced me to retreat to the reviews, and decided instead to pick up the Bonavita, which is apparently as good as Technivorm in performance, but is $130 cheaper. I went with the model that has the glass-lined thermal carafe. Tracking says it's out for delivery, so wish me luck.
