Summary: Coffee maker works good but permanent filter has a habit of clogging making it overflow. Not a good thing when setting the timer. You can wake up in the morning expecting a good cup of coffee only to find a mess.
Summary: The one we got was reconditioned or re-boxed or whatever, and it turned out to be defective and was scrapped. We had it for less than a week. It's presence on the counter is BIG. We called it the coffee monster. Other than that, I liked the way it looked....till I grew to hate it.
Summary: The coffee maker looks great. That is the only thing that keeps it from getting a poor. It makes decent coffee. My problem is that the coffee maker will just come on for no reason or shut off for no reason.
Summary: Today I crawled to the kitchen and and hit the on button twice and dragged myself to the kitchen table to await a wonderful cup of coffee. I'm still waiting! Nothing happened. All the lights that normally come on came on, but no brewing.
Summary: Recently my coffeemaker broke down and I bought this one to replace it. I didn't really conduct much consumer research, I just allowed myself to be swayed by the look of the thing. I thought it looked very cool.
Summary: I bought this maker because it is the coolest looking one around. But now I have to leave a towel around it because I find coffee all over the place more often than not. Setting the carafe has to be perfect, or the coffee overflows. And it does dribble if you try to pour coffee too quickly.
Summary: Free to good home - very attractive breed, looks great on counter, sturdy. Problem: impossible to house train. We are constantly cleaning up little puddles and getting very annoyed. Seriously though, if you buy this coffee maker you WILL have coffee on your countertop.
company does not make replacement parts/filters hard to find

Summary: Hi! When shopping for a coffee maker I think it is really important that if it comes with the water filters you should be able to find replacement filters fairly easy but unfortunately you can only order the replacement filters for this unit from the manufacturer which is not cheap when you figure...
