Excerpt: I received this grinder and coffee maker combo as a wedding gift in 2009. I was really excited to use it and knew it cost around $100 so had high expectations. It does make a great pot of coffee since the beans are fresh ground and I was very happy with it for the first few years.
Pros: Brews Quickly, Easy To Use, Multiple Settings
Good tasting coffee but a mess to clean up with every pot.

Summary: This makes great tasting coffee but it is a pain to clean and dry the grinder, filter basket, carafe and the parts of the machine that hold these parts every time you make a pot of coffee. The white plastic parts also discolor and stain from the coffee.
Summary: I have had this coffee maker a couple years, had a Braun prior that lasted a number of years. No matter how many cups of coffee we wanted, this model would only give us 2 cups. I contacted C.S.
Summary: I love the convenience of a grind & brew coffeemaker. It's less clutter and devices in the kitchen. I was very happy to find this in white, which is difficult these days. It also comes in stainless steel for those of you who love stainless.
Excerpt: It doesn't leak from the sides when I pour my coffee. It has a great sealed cap. The lid is great with any amount of liquid you have in the container. The sealed lid justs pops off easily when I need to clean it.
Pros: It doesn't leak from the sides when I pour my coffee. It has a great sealed cap. The lid is great with any amount of liquid you have in the container. The sealed lid justs pops off easily when I need to clean it.
Cons: It's not much of a con, but I guess I was use to more traditional flip open coffee pots. That feeling goes way in no time though.
Summary: It may sound silly to some but this coffee maker makes a great pot of coffee. It's no french press but best next to that for home brew. A little disappointed in the size of the water filling space and is not the easiest to clean with all the crevices.
