Topic: Kenmore brewer (6 msgs / 121 lines)

In Sears today I saw a Kenmore drip Brewer that boasts 1500 Watts.  Been
there and done that: I had a high wattage brewer by Melitta that did not do
the job probably because of the way it was constructed, notwithstanding the
wattage.  Does anyone have any experience with the Kenmore?  Will it get the
water hot enough?

I have no experience, but if the price is right, you could be a beta tester.
$ back if you think it's a POS.
1500 watts is not far from the limit you could draw from a 120v household
electric outlet, and it definitely will heat water to the proper brewing
temperature. The design of the machine controls the actual brewing speed and
temperature.

The ones I looked at when I was in Sear the other day seemed to look =
just like the cuisenart brewers, and could very well be the exact brewer =
with the Kenmore name on it.

I compared the Cuisinarts in the store and the wattage was different.  Maybe
it was made by Cuisinart with Kenorme specifications.  
Wattage does not seem to be the only factor in getting your coffee brewed at
the proper temperature.  I have a Melitta Quick Brew (I think that is the
name) and the wattage is up there at around 1400.  I forget exactly what the
wattage was but it was higher than all of the other popular brands (except
Bunn) and it should have been well high enough to get the water right.
Remember that the Presto Scandinavian has 1350 Watts.  But The Melitta Quick
Brew heated the water to around 180 degrees or less (I forget; it simply was
not hot enough).  According to the reviewers I read the problem with the
Quick Brew was the way it was constructed,; the way the water tube that
brought the water to the coffee was routed along the side of the coffee
maker.  I am not an expert, but I do know that notwithstanding the wattage
the water was not hot enough and that was not my experience alone.  Maybe I
will wait and see if the Kenmore goes on sale I will buy one.  Right now
there is just no a lot of disposable income, besides holiday presents,
travel expenses for the holidays and everything else holiday related.  But
since I am using a Presto Scandinavian I want to keep it in mind since the
one I have is famous for not lasting very long.
