Rated 5 out of 5Â by MzLiz No carafe!
I bought it because there's no carafe for me to break. We use the sprayer from our sink to fill the reservoir, so no issue there. I didn't want to get stuck with having to buy the coffee pods - plus we like regular, old fashioned coffee the best. One downside is the limitation on the height of a cup that fits under the dispenser. A travel mug doesn't slip under it. However, cups only slightly shorter (1/2") than a travel mug DO fit. I thought all coffeemakers burbled at the end- that's what tells me it's done! So the tiny beep seems duplicative. I love the streamline look on my new counters.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by CMKB This coffeemaker works great.
Our old coffeemaker was starting to fail. I wanted one that provided 12 cups max and one that you could fill from the coffeemaker itself rather than a carafe. This product more than fulfilled my expectations. It is easy to use. Its has 12 cups max and is programmable. It even has a light when you press the coffee release so you don't overfill your cup. That is great when you have a dark colored cup, no overfilling and spilling hot coffee. I would recommend this coffeemaker for any one looking for great features.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by MrsJFG Great Idea/Poor Quality
I am writing this after owning this type for over three years. The first one last two years and began leaking (all over the counter, floor, etc.) and so I threw out and bought another last year (should have returned). Just this week, brewed a pot and, again, the valve stuck and coffee all over the counter. Returned to Kohl's and received refund. This seems to be a defect if you read reviews. Also the container is really hard to clean as coffee oils collect in a bottom rim and takes A LOT of scrubbing. Two stars for idea, zero stars for quality and execution.

over this coffee maker. no carafe, awesome idea, easy to clean, it's programmable, coffee is hot, and it shuts off within your programmed time. some people report that this coffee maker leaks. that's because the coffee grounds over flow if you fill them too much, and cause the spring in the single serve to stick. clean it with baking soda and rinse it goood. you should have NO issues.
