Braun KF550 Coffee Maker
Braun, a German company, has been making a wide variety of household electronics and appliances for nearly a century. These products have ranged from early radios and phonographs to some of the first electric shavers to modern automatic drip coffeemakers. One of their popular lines is the AromaDeluxe series. The Braun KF550 ten cup coffee maker is one of these models. It is a fast brewing coffeemaker using a solid 1100 watts to power its heating element. It also includes a built in Brita water filter so the brewing process starts with the cleanest water possible. It also includes a brew-pause feature that stops the brewing process for a quick cup of coffee (for the impatient!), a permanent filter and a automatic safety shut off.
Braun KF550 Replacement Carafe
The Braun KF550 is a sturdy coffee maker that should last for quite some time. It does have a glass carafe, and as one might expect, that can be easily broken. If this happens, Braun also sells the replacement carafes; the KFK500 BK (black trim) and the KFK500WH (white trim).
