Summary: Received this coffee pot in July as a house warming gift so it is only 4 months old. It worked well at first then it started... The spring hangs up and then the filter backs up and you have coffee all over the counter. We thought at 1st it was us so we stopped using the programmable feature and started making coffee when we woke up. It was not us. My husband wound up taking the center spring out of the pot to allow the coffee to go through the filter into the pot.
Summary: My boyfriend and I bought this after returning the red Mr. Coffee that only lasted 2.5 months. This coffee maker is a gem. It brews coffee quickly and it's hot, keeps the coffee hot for 2 hours and has a nice count down timer to let you know how long it has been since the pot was brewed. Yes the front where the clock is get condensation on it, but that has not affected it at all after three months of use and we brew several pots a day.
Summary: I bought this because it has an option to control the strength of the coffee. After using it once, this function did not work. I tried it without this option and the coffee was weak and tasteless. It is going back today. Do not buy this. Complete waste of money.
Summary: Really have been enjoying this coffee maker. I tend to shatter the carafe's on just about every coffee maker I have had and so far, I have not shattered this one. I like that it beeps when brewing is complete and when it shuts off. I have yet to use a coffee maker carafe that HAS NOT spilled, dripped, poured out and gotten on the counter and this one is no exception...no matter how slow you pour, the angle you pour it at etc.
Summary: After my Mr. Coffee died I sent my son to get me a new coffee maker. He bought me this brand because he thought it was a good deal. Wrong. I've had it 2 weeks and the programing has broke. And if you don't adjust the pot just right you have water and grounds all over the counter. Don't waste your money on this gem. I'm know online trying to find a coffee maker that will last that doesn't cost a fortune.
