Summary: Ditto to all the other bad reviews. Good looking but carafe drips, has plastic handle so dishwasher is not recommended. No automatic turn-off after 2 hours, water tank has cracked at bottom so it leaks - Kalorik wants $40 to replace tank! I've had it 2 years so out of warranty. VERY disappointed!
Summary: I loved the look--so much i bought a second after the first one died after only 6 months. It just quit---the light was the only part still working. It also had problems with the silver/chrome lid being plastic and crinkling up off the top.
Not worth your effort, buy a different brand/model!

Summary: We bought the Onyx black model (slightly different - )from MyHabit for 49.95, mostly because of the looks and price. I still like the look, however here is why you should avoid buying the coffee maker: 1) We have never succeeded in poring a drip-free cup of coffee.
Summary: Just took it out of the box and will be returning it tomorrow. Strange shape - very very narrow, which explains why it's pictured practically sideways. I put it out on the counter in front of the plug and it wasn't even wide enough to cover the double plug in the wall.
Summary: TERRIBLE PRODUCT. I AM AN ARCHITECT AND I AM WILLING TO SACRIFICE SOME BASIC FUNCTIONS IN THE NAME OF DESIGN, BUT THIS THING IS SIMPLY FLAWED THROUGH OUT. I HAVE ALREADY EXCHANGED IT ONCE AND NOW THE SECOND ONE HAS DETERIORATED BEYOND USE AS WELL!
Summary: I bought this coffee maker a year ago.. its beautiful.. in fact i bought the whole set (toaster, blender) within the first month the top of the coffee maker (where the steam comes out) started to ripple up.
Summary: We bought this coffee maker and it worked great for about a month. Then it just quit working. No reason behind it- just quit brewing anything. I was glad we purchased through Amazon as they took it back no questions asked.
