Rated 1 out of 5Â by H82complain 6 months later and needs replaced.
I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend to replace the machine he had for 8+ years. The only issue we noticed right off was that it was difficult to pour coffee without spilling it. That was something we could deal with, pour it slower. Then the machine started taking longer and longer to make the coffee so I decided to clean it. I use the clean cycle and it just shuts off in the middle of cleaning it. To empty it, I try to run it through the regular cycle. The machine starts leaking everywhere. All the water emptied out of the bottom of the machine. Back to the drawing board and finding another machine.

This coffee maker is the "go to "coffee maker for those who drink a lot of coffee or for entertaining. The glass coffee carafe does keep the coffee warm as long as the machine is "on". When the pot is full, please take care and perhaps pour the coffee while over the sink to avoid a spill. We drink a lot of coffee and use the machine at least twice a day. We have had many,many other coffee makers and this one really stands out. I highly recommend it! Tip: Do not use a very fine grind and do not fill the paper liner to the top. This will help avoid getting the grinds into the coffee.

Received as a gift - so I am kind of stuck with this. Brews OK, but the coffee is not hot enough, and with a non-heated carafe, it then cools too quickly.
The design is pretty bulky, with the pull out top it claims that you can leave under the cabinet and not move it - but the water gauge is on the side, so you can not see how full it is, the carafe doe not pour out completely until you tip completely upside down - so you can not use that as a gauge.
Basically - this seems like a product that the manufacturer never really used - they designed it and went into production.

This is a basic brewer and it makes a fine cuppa, but I've owned if for a year-ish, and the control buttons' labels have come off. The buttons still work but it's a guessing game to get it programmed properly, or decipher which button is which.
I think ALL coffee makers should have the control buttons ABOVE the carafe so they are never affected by coffee spills, hot water ,grounds or wiping it down, etc.
