First there is not light behind the time. Need a flashlight to see the settings. No off/on button if you want to save some coffee for later and then heat. The top of the pot is not covered with the lid and every time you pour the coffee it comes out the sides and all over the counter. The pot needs a new design.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by JavaBud Suddenly stopped working after 2.5 months. Died.
Worked fine from Christmas to March 10. Made a cup of coffee in the morning today... two hours later, went to make another cup -- dead. Green light comes on but does not perk the water up to drip nor does the hot plate heat up. Tried unplugging and re-plugging it. 'Brew Now' button only lights the green light -- nothing else happens. So why would it suddenly just stop? -- no damage to it, no changing settings, nothing different in use. Might it be "planned obsolescence?" [Nah, no manufacturer would do such a thing]
While it worked, it worked fine. Let's just hope this was a fluke -- will find out -- just returned it for another one. If it dies too, than we'll know.

There are some good points about this coffee maker, and some bad, but I'll start with the good.
First, the coffee is nice and hot, and it's fast. It's easy to clean, and to operate.
Now the bad points. It did not come with a permanent filter like some of the other brands. The display is very hard to see. Room has to be really bright and at the right angle. LCD display should have been back lit. Did not come with a measuring spoon like some of the other brands. Base of coffee maker only has two rubber feet in the back. Should of had four of them for better stability. Cord was really wrapped tight inside of coffee maker when unit was un-packed.

I wish you coffeepot mTakers that nC coffee drinkers drink a teacupn of coffee and base your makers on a larger cup size. My 5 cup pot makes an average of 3 cups of coffee.
