Kalorik Kristmas Giveaway – Coffee Maker

Hello my lovelies! I know I just ended a giveaway and I usually don’t do them so closely together like this, but with it being the holiday season and all I just couldn’t resist sharing something fabulous with you!

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to review  a beautiful metallic 12-cup coffee maker in “Kalorik Red”. I’m a sucker for red appliances, though I have to admit – this is the first one I’ve ever owned.

Oooo.. Ahhh!

I love coffee. If I had my way in life, coffee would pretty much be flowing into my mouth 24 hours a day. However, I would probably die from caffeine poisoning. My point is that I love coffee. I had a standard Mr. Coffee pot in my house, so when I got my shiny new Kalorik I was beyond excited. One of the things I was the most excited about is that it’s PROGRAMMABLE. I’ve never owned a coffee pot that was programmable before, or had a digital LCD clock on it! I felt like I was moving up in the world. I love to program my coffee maker at night before I go to bed and wake up to the smell of freshly brewed java wafting from my kitchen.The Kalorik Coffee Maker also has an automatic 2-hour shutoff system, which is great if you’re like me and can’t ever remember whether or not you turned your coffee pot off. Then you get halfway to wherever you’re going and make your husband turn the car around just to make sure you turned the darn thing off. Yeah, not a problem with this bad boy. The pot also features a “pause and serve” function, and a nonstick “keep-hot plate” so your coffee isn’t going to get cold. Other features of the Kalorik coffee maker include:

  • Drip-free carafe
  • Transparent water tank
  • Blue backlit display
  • Cone filters (type 4)

Pretty much as soon as my coffee maker arrived, I got to work. The manual recommends that you run three cycles of hot water through before your first use. I anxiously awaited the cycles to go through and when it was time to taste my very first cup of coffee?

Heaven. Pure heaven. It made the coffee made in my old pot seem like dirt water. Mud. Worse than mud. I’m not even joking, this coffee pot made the coffee taste better. I love how pretty it looks on my counter and that it does not take up a lot of space. I live in an apartment, and counter space is scarce so every inch is precious. This coffee pot actually takes up less space and fits in my little “coffee maker nook” better than my old one!

Okay, okay. Enough with the gushing. What you’re all REALLY here for..
