Viking Coffee Maker Expensive, lousy AND made in China

jcmods | Nov 23, 2012 07:30 AM

So much for Viking being supposedly American made. I guess everything except their lousy coffee maker which tends to stop brewing halfway through. (because of the cheaply made valve on the top of the carafe which has to fit precisely to allow the liquid to flow into the carafe).

The result being that you sometimes wake up to find coffee all over the floor and on the counter (and inside the machine where you cannot get to it).

It also flashes a warning that you need to decalcify the machine. This is just so much BS as I use filtered water. This is the second disaster and all negative product reviews on Amazon indicate that it will not be the last.

I may have to stop drinking coffee altogether because there are no other coffee makers not made in China.

The product seems to have been "retired" according to their web site. I guess I am just one of those suckers who has to eat $300 bucks.
