Best coffee maker I've ever owned.

Michele S, Amazon
20 August 2014
  • Summary: This is the BEST coffee maker I have ever owned. I love that it's a stainless steel thermos with no hot plate feature--keeps your coffee warm for hours without that burnt coffee taste. It keeps the coffee fresh enough that I can actually save and reheat the next day if I want. I also love the pause and pour feature that allows you to pull the thermos off the base mid-brew (which pauses brewing) to pour yourself a cup before brewing has finished--no spills! Do recommend.

Leaks, doesn't pour, don't buy this!

G, Amazon

  • Summary: This is hands-down the absolute worst coffee maker I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. The seal between the pourspout of the carafe and the metal bottom is flawed and leaks when you pour it, meaning you HAVE to pour it over the sink or you'll get coffee everywhere. The machine leaks out the bottom when brewing coffee, creating puddles of water on the counter [and quite a bit, too.

Pretty Annoying

cc, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: The only good thing about this coffee maker is that it makes coffee. Otherwise, there's nothing else positive I can say about it. The carafe never completely empties because of the wide lip all the way around. It is impossible to pour coffee without it dripping. I too, pour over the sink. The plastic basket parts are flimsy and the lid must be locked and unlocked with a feature that is also the release for the spout. I don't see much engineering foresight in this design.

Great Coffeemaker

  • Summary: Keeps coffee hot for hours for that fresh taste from every cup. Has the same features as Programmable Thermal 10 Cup Coffeemakers 3 times the price. Worth the money anyday. Recommend to anybody.

POOR QUALITY--DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

Bleubell12, shop your way
10 May 2014
  • Summary: The lid to this pot is very light weight plastic and must be carefully handled. The brewing process is very loud with popping noises thrown in, and takes an extremely long time. When pouring the coffee, it spills all over the counter no matter how many times I tried redoing the way the lid was secured. I am returning it after one day. I see it costs $5 more today than when I purchased it a week ago. It cost me nearly $20 to ship it back.

Not easy to pour

R. Glidden, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: I have used a glass lined thermal carafe coffee maker by Bunn for years 13 and LOVED it. This is the WORST coffee pouring system I have ever used. You have to tip the pot completely over while pressing a lever to get the coffee out. Also, the stop/pour does not work well either. I would not recommend this to anyone unless you like being aggravated first thing in the morning.

Don't buy this coffee maker

RMP, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Folks, I am not "that guy" that typically writes reviews about products. But when I find something that is perhaps the worst coffee maker I ever encountered in my life I need to say something. This product fails in every area that I can conceivably think of. If you pour too fast it drips down the side and spills, it is not intuitive to program to automatically brew in mornings, it is hard to fill before operation, it turns off after brewing and coffee begins to get cold,...
