Summary: This is a good buy for the price. I purchased two other coffee makers for much more and I sent them back. I will keep this one. The coffee is good, hot and the machine looks nice on the counter.
Summary: There's not much I can say about this product because mine was defective. I set it for the morning to be ready for me when I got up, and there was water all over my counter. There was still coffee ready, but for some reason half of the water was on my counter. I thought maybe I had spilled some, so I tried again another night, same thing happened, so I filled it back up, turned it on and watched underneath with a flashlight.
Summary: I was very disappointed after using the first time. I was excited when I found the 6 cup "brew station" (a 12 cup is way too large for me) and most of the reviews were decent. The size is great but that's about all it is good for. Cheaply made which is probably why I had to push down hard on the front of the lid to get the last two cups of coffee to come out. Tried again the next day and the same thing. Coffee was not hot enough either.
Summary: Happy with this purchase for the most part. Easy to use, keeps coffee good & hot but my only complaint is the lid is very flimsy & doesn't close tightly allowing some steam out. Like the design much better than the glass pots normally used.
Summary: I purchased this coffeemaker primarily because we have a full size (12 cup) model at work that is wonderful. However it doesnt carry over to this model. Pouring water into the unit is awkward. and you have to hit the dispensing button in exactly the right spot and at exactly the right angle to get it to work. On top of all that, I've tried 3 different brands of coffee & all were skunky. Definitely returning.
Summary: It took less than 48 hours to get this item to my front door. The intentions was to have 2 good cups of coffee without having to use a large coffee maker. The 6 cup brew master is really 6 tiny cups of coffee and I knew that buying it. The heating element is inside and the coffee stays hot for 2 hours and that is plenty of time to get to drink it. There is no pot to worry about and the cleaning is very easy.
Summary: I have always experience diffiulty with carafe either cracking or staining. I also did not like the ideal of coffee being exposed and left out. This machine has it covred with no carafe and the coffee is store inside which is better coverage for me and I can dispense it as I need regardless of cup size with minimal spills. I wish it was a not necessarily plastic, it kinda ditracts from the overall look but for me I'm satisfied.
