Summary: This coffee maker is so easy to use and clean up is a breeze! The Aroma feature is truly unique and adds to the flavor also. Honestly wish I would have found this model sooner as my others which were more expensive were not dependable. I would rate this as an Excellent coffee maker!!!!
Summary: My wife and I did not want to invest heavily in our at-home coffee maker and chose to buy this one. It has been troublesome. Every pour is a potential disaster. I've been drinking (and pouring) coffee for about 10 years, so I thought I'd catch on to the trick of not dribbling coffee everywhere but I never have. The quantity of coffee toasted to oblivion on our unit's warming plate can be measured by the pot at this point.
Summary: Once upon a time I had a hand-me-down, ancient Mr. Coffee coffeemaker. It made the best coffee ever, and I thought it was because *I* made the best coffee ever. That coffeemaker died after a combined 20+ years of service in my mother's house, and my first few apartments. I went through a series of replacements, none of which survived more than a year and all of which made HORRID coffee. I got this one for Christmas two years ago.
Summary: The coffee that comes out of this maker is great. (Do not use the Aroma setting. It is not worth the extra time.) The coffee is hot, the keep-warm plate doesn't burn the coffee but does keep it nice and hot. And the darn thing looks good. Now the quirks: - If you don't get the basket in just right, the coffee will not drip into the carafe and will eventually overflow. (There is an alignment tab, but you can still close the holder if it is misaligned.
Summary: I loved this coffeemaker, it has a sleek design, and works perfectly. Also my coffee tastes better, I think this is because of the metal filter included and the circular water pouring. It is also programmable, so you can set it a night before.
Summary: Bought this model at Target a few years back and was VERY pleasantly surprised at how delicious the coffee was. I like that there is a clear window with measurements to show how much water is in the tank. Like the small basket, for better soaking of the coffee. I always use the slower, aroma setting. It does not take THAT much longer and is definitely worth the wait.
Summary: We've had this for over a week and it's got to be the worst coffee maker ever. The carafe on our old 12 cup Braun broke and we needed an emergency replacement. We ended up purchasing this at Target on an impulse buy after failed attempts to find a decent replacement at other stores. Lesson learned is to NEVER buy without researching! The coffee maker is slow, especially when you use the Aroma setting.
Summary: I've been through several coffee makers in my life...this is the worst. I am also big into cone filters, as IMHO they make a better cup of cofffee. It does not leak when pouring as savagely as the Krups I have owned, but makes around 10 cups of coffee and then shuts down from dripping while there is still coffee in the basket where you put the coffee.
Summary: Great programmable coffeemaker. Easy to use. Wonderful to wake up in the AM and have your coffee waiting. After 6 months of use I have had to buy 3 carafes. The bottoms crack without a cause Now I'm unable to find replacements...I wonder why.
