Summary: Love the way the water tank comes out to fill.Putting water in other coffee makers was a pain-trying to get water in without spilling all over the place.Makes good coffee,and yes I admit I tried to pour coffee out of the carafe the first time. I made a mess. Then decided to really look at it and read instructions.After that we had no problem pouring coffee.Had some problems with the first one I bought-I called him and he couldn't have been nicer.
Summary: Great coffee maker. We've bought three. One was a gift and one we wore out after about 18 months of heavy use. It keeps our coffee nice and fresh and hot for about 4 hours after brewing without that strong, burnt, repercolated taste. Service is simply outstanding.
Summary: Have had this machine (refurbished from ebay) about three months now and have not had one problem with it. Very attractive and IMO, solidly built. I LOVE the water dispenser that has a handle, lifts out of the coffee-maker, and can be brought to the sink to fill, with clearly marked measurements.
Summary: I have found that other coffee pots that I have purchased that have a burner the carafe sits on, either stops keeping the coffee hot or gets discolored and eventually stops working. This coffee pot doesn't have a burner, the thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot for hours and it doesn't get hot to the touch so you won't burn yourself. Best part is that it makes great coffee. I am very pleased with this purchase and I highly recommend this coffee pot.
Summary: This coffee maker is better than we expected. The style is gorgious. We like the fact that the Karafe can't break as we have broken many glass ones in the past. The other interesting feature is the fact that the karafe keeps the coffee hot for hours and there is no need for a warming tray. We can take the karafe out on the patio with us without it having to be on a warming plate which is nice.
Summary: Ok, I am a coffee pot-aholic! I have tried every pot out there and I never seem to like any of them. Either the carafe leaks or they're impossible to clean! I decided to try the DeLonghi because I have several other appliances made by them...wow!...I love this coffee pot!!! I've had it for several months and I just love it. It cleans up easily and the coffee taste wonderful pot after pot. It looks really nice as well. No leaking from the body or carafe.
Summary: I have killed MANY (Krups & Cuisinart were the last two)name brand coffee pots and this one has not yet failed! I make on average 3 pots a day, 365 days a year and I love this pot! Excellent flavored coffee every time.(Note to the person who said this made nasty coffee,use good quality beans to start with.
Summary: What a great coffeemaker. It even includes a water filter and a calcium monitor that tells you when to do the deep cleaning. The flavor control works well as does everything else on the unit. The stainless steel carafe is easy to handle and convenient to use. Overall I'd rate this unit as an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10! Buy it with confidence.
Summary: This is a great coffee maker and I haven't experienced any of the problems with dripping that I've read about in other reviews. It is a very solid and well made coffee maker and carafe. Timer function is pretty straight forward to set and use. Coffee stays at a warm, drinkable temp for several hours and doesnt't get that "burnt" taste to it that you get with the pot sitting on a warming plate.
Summary: I dont see what the problem people seem to be having with this coffee maker. I have owned mine for almost 1 month and have had great results since day 1.It is so easy to use and it brews a great pot of coffee everytime .The main reason for buying this unit was because I was sick of all the crappy coffee makers I have owned previously.This coffe maker is not only idiot proof but makes the best tasting home brew I have ever had.It did however take me about 5 pots worth to...
