Summary: I like that it is a karafe and that it does not sit on a burner. I like that you fill the water reservoir by lifting it off of the machine and returning it to the machine - no need to fill it using another container. It cleans easily. However, it does not heat the water hot enough to enjoy a premium grade of coffee. Otherwise, very simple to use and program.
Summary: Carfe keeps coffee warm for about 4hr, which is what I needed. Controls are good. The only thing that is a bit akward, is getting the pot under the part that holds the coffee just right. Overall a very good coffee maker.
Summary: This coffeemaker is easy to use and to program. It works well and is a good buy for the price. The thermal carafe keeps the coffee warm without producing a bitter taste. At 15 1/2 inches, it's taller than our previous coffeemaker, but still fits under our cabinet. Would recommend this item.
Carafe is KING ~ Digital Timer Makes for a NICE MORNING
2 February 2008
Summary: What do I love? First, the carafe - coffee is so fresh first class at 6:00am to last at around 10am!! No burning on the heating element or being a stale 're-zap' in the microwave. Plus the carafe is really elegant. Second, the digital timer. This little added bonus makes all the difference in the world. I set up the coffeemaker at night and awake to a fresh, delicious cup of java...doesn't get any better than that!
