Lasted longer than the last one, but here we go again...

Summary: This coffee maker makes delicious coffee. That being said, the lifetime of this item is not what I expected to say the least. The first one I purchased lasted a year. This one lasted about 1 1/2 years but now I find myself needing another coffee maker. We do brew coffee almost every day, but only one pot. The coffee maker seems like it is doing fine and then Whala! No more perking or heating. the lights work, but nothing happens. So very disappointing!!
Summary: Arrived in good shape - in good time - but was extremely dirty. Had not been cleaned before shipping. I expected a few wear-and- tear places, and there were, but I expected it to be reasonably clean, not like it had been used yesterday. After a thorough cleaning it works well. The top to the carafe had been burned and would not fit down tightly. It is marginally OK.
Summary: We were glad to find a truly large coffeemaker wiithout having to buy a 55 cup 'meeting' pot which we didn't want. It saves money on coffee as well because it takes the same amount of grounds to make this large pot as it did to make a good cup of coffee with our old pot before it died.
Summary: We purchased this for our 5 person office as it had the 14 cup capacity. We make about one pot a day. Machine worked well enough. We love the timer so we have fresh coffee when we come in. First unit lasted about 6 monts and just stopped brewing (similar problem to others that have reported here). Called and was send a brand new machine without any hasstle and did not have to return the old one. New unit lasted another 8 months and had the exact same problem.
Summary: We needed a coffee pot fast and we saw this one and it sounded like it had everything we wanted only down falls of it is it doesn't have a side view of the water and the clock and timer you have to go threw every hour instead of just pushing it so many times for hour and min. Coffee is hot though so if not expecting a lot this is the one for you.
Summary: My kids bought me one of these for fathers day. On day 2 the carafe cracked and broke. I tried to send it back but was told that if the carafe wasn't broken when it arrived then it wasn't covered under any warranty. who knows, maybe it had a small crack or chip in it when it came in that I did not notice. I have been making and drinking coffee for over 30 years and never once have i cracked or broken a carafe.
Summary: I've had better, and I've had worse. If you drink black coffee you may find this product does not produce the best coffee, but if your adding lots of stuff to it or like weak coffee than this is for you. The brew strength feature seems to do nothing but turn on the indicator light, so don't expect results from that. Just my opinion. Happy hunting.
