Pros: Hopped on NewEgg to buy a replacement carafe (I dropped mine >.< ) and figured I'd update my old review. Sorry some people had problems with this unit but 3 years later, mine still works! I even had a mishap with the dishwasher and melted a few pieces, but it's holding up like a tank, haha. Still...

Summary: good price; will have to clean the grinder every time you use it. Collects too much steam or moisture around and in the grinder areas which could block grinder coffee from being delivered to the strainer, so clean the grinder and dry it before making the next batch of coffee.

Summary: I had an older model of this and it lasted about 3 years. When it went, thought I would try the new model since it looks more modern and perhaps improved? Well........ The GOOD There is SO MUCH to like about this coffee maker. I find it easy to use and easy to clean.
Summary: I've never written a review before but I had such a bad experience with this coffee maker that I thought I would write a review. First of all, if you like to grind your own coffee like me and thought this grind and brew coffee would be a great feature, STEER CLEAR. It's a joke of a feature.

Summary: This is a blade grinder. There is another more expensive model which is a burr grinder which is probably a much better brewer. The blade grinder does not extract as much flavor and burns the beans while grinding.. 20141119 Update: downgraded. it just doesn't make good coffee.
This is the worst, most inconsistent coffee maker I've ever had
4 October 2014
Summary: This is the worst, most inconsistent coffee maker I've ever had. Sometimes it's like the water never even passes through the coffee grounds - after brewing the water was barely brown, and the center of the grounds was actually dry.
Summary: Great buy. This is the best coffee maker I have ever had. Nothing bad to say , but it could use a grinder timer. After three BUNN makers in five year they all broke. Superior coffee flavor compared to a bunn. Worth the money and then some.
