Appliance brand brews new coffee maker
A kitchen appliance brand has developed a new drip coffee maker.
KitchenAid, a brand of Benton Harbor-based Whirlpool, will begin selling its 12-Cup Drip Coffee Maker with Spiral Showerhead and Programmable Warming Plate this summer, according to the brand this month.
It will be available for a suggested retail price of $89.99 for the standard version and $119.99 for the model with a warming plate. The product will come in matte black, matte charcoal gray and matte white.
KitchenAid designed the coffee maker for “optimal flavor extraction, purposeful design for ease of use and a modern and sleek aesthetic to create a countertop showpiece.”
“People look to their drip coffee for a delicate blend of comfort and energy,” said Nikki Lockett, U.S. marketing leader for KitchenAid Small Appliances. “With this in mind, we developed new drip coffee makers that brew consistent and flavorful coffee, giving you the perfect cup every time.”
The coffee maker’s 29-hole spiral showerhead “evenly saturates coffee grounds for optimal extraction.”
It also features a “variable brew strength selector” to choose between regular and bold strengths, programmability and a pause-and-pour feature to pour a cup before the pot is done brewing.
The optional warming plate with high and low settings is designed to keep coffee at “the perfect temperature” for up to four hours.
The coffee maker also has a “dosage ladder” on the gold tone filter and a “dosage chart” on the water tank, as well as a removable water tank.
