Summary: We purchased this machine 4 months ago and have used it every day. We read and re-read the directions and followed them to the T. We lined the arrows up when pouring, we poured gingerly, we did everything we could think of.
Summary: 1) to start it, you have to push the button twice, not once, so you have to educate all your weekend house guests; 2) when your coffee is ready at 7 am in the morning and you're still blearly-eyed, if you don't turn the lid on the carafe so that the two arrows match up absolutely exactly, you will...
Horrible Horrible Coffee Maker ...Please save your money
28 June 2006
Summary: I was stupid and ignored all the negative reviews saying that this coffee maker functions poorly, overflows frequently, and breaks within weeks of purchase. I was lured in by the great looks of this machine and the fact that it had a thermal carafe instead of a burner so the coffee would stay fresh.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS COFFEE MAKER. I originally decided to purchase this item becuase of its nice appearance and the fact that it had a removable water reservoir. I have now owned two of these (after a warranty replacement) and both have suffered from the same defects and shortcomings.
