Summary: I like the stainless steel carafe, the permanent gold filter, and the easy fill. I dislike having to use about twice as much coffee as with the Krups 10-cup. I dislike that the carafe handle has a flimsy connection. I dislike the very long brewing time. I dislike the broken clock. I bought it for the steel carafe.
Summary: THIS THING IS NICE, BUT I MISSTEP AND YOU HAVE COFFEE EVERYWHERE. THE LID TO THE CARAFE COULD BE A LITTLE EASIER TO USE, NOT REQUIRING THE OPENING AND CLOSING EACH TIME TO USE IT, AND DONT LEAVE IT UNSEALED, COFFEE GOES ICE COLD IN MINUTES. WILL MAKE DO, BUT TO THE PEOPLE WHO SPEND 200.00 ON THIS THING WOW...WHAT A WASTE. BARELY WORTH THE TROUBLE I WENT THRU TO GET IT HERE FOR 40.00.
Summary: THis makes better coffee than most coffee makers but is somewhat messy, especially if the grounds flow over which has happened many times to me. The coffee also spills when poured from the carafe if you are not very careful.
Summary: Always, Amazon sends out their products swiftly which we appreciate. The coffee maker is attractive and easy to use. If one wants coffee that is not bitter, use a filter along with the one that comes with the machine. Our only complaint is it does not make the coffee hot enough. We still have to put our cup in the microwave to bring the temperature up. We would love to find a machine that makes HOT coffee.
Summary: Alright. I've had this coffee machine straight from the Starbucks retail store nearly 2 years ago for $150 when we had friends stay the weekend (couldn't NOT have a coffee machine!). Things have been fine until the last month or so. Well, that's not entirely the truth. Pros: 1. thermal carafe keeps coffee warm up to 8 hours! True! This is something i actually need nowadays as i work from home. 2. metal filter never needs replacing. Well worth the non-hassle. Srsly. 3.
Summary: I like the style and look about this model; however there are a few problems with the basic construction of the machine, at least in my opinon. The base for the filter needs a better dispenser! it it's not set on here andpressed firmly down, te water in the filter does not drip into the pot! instead it pour out the top leaving a huge mess of coffee and grinds.
Summary: I loved this coffee maker when I first bought it. The coffee always stayed hot with the thermal caraffe, it's a good looking, stainless steel unit, and it seemed to make a good cup of coffee. I've recently read from other reviewers how they didn't think it brewed it strong enough, but I think that can be based upon the beans used, the strength dial on top of the unit, and the drinkers own taste. Same as any other coffee maker. Well, I started to run into problems.
Summary: I bought this for my husband for Christmas and yes we are having the dripping problems. I called Delonghi and they sent the rubber seal for the lid, that didn't work. I called them again and I told them I bought it at Amazon. They said that Amazon probably had an older design of this product. Maybe Starbucks has a newer model? They are sending me a new "redesigned" maker.
Summary: I got this coffeemaker at Starbucks. The machine was on sale since they were not going to carry it anymore. It makes great tasting coffee, never had any problems with spills or leaks. Love the fact that you can pull out the water reservoir to fill. The water filter is great since our water is horrible tasting. Coffee is hot for drinking (I take it black) but once I transfer it to my insulated mug to take to work the temperature drops quickly.
