Summary: I have another coffeemaker in this model. It makes great coffee. Although it depends on the kind of coffee and amount of grounds you use. Anyway, its one of the few makers that is not black. Its very cool looking with its sleek chrome design.
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.
Summary: My wife bought this coffee maker in August 2010, now 5 months later (February 2011) it's dead. It turns on- but does not heat up or make coffee. We had the same problems as others...the little tab that lifts the lid & drip spout together broke off, not a huge problem really, I just opened/closed the parts seperately. I could live with it. Not making coffee is something I cannot live with.
Summary: When I opened the box up and looked carefully I could see this was a very cheap machine. The glass was so very thin. The plastic was thin, too. The coffee it made was okay, no problem there. It worked for about a month and it went dead. This item should cost about ten dollars, certainly not the 40 plus I paid for it. One should be able to get a fairly well made coffee maker for forty to fifty dollars. Buy something else.
Summary: I purchased this coffee maker at the beginning of 2010 after my sister got me an Oster metallic red toaster for Xmas (they go great together in my red & white kitchen)! I've had all kinds of coffee makers over the years but I really do like this one the best. No bells and whistles, no features I don't want or use. It makes coffee - period. Whether you want a few cups or an entire pot, it's all good. I love the filter basket design, as it's very easy to empty (and fill).
Really poor quality; pretty if you don't need it to make coffee

Summary: This lil beauty is no cherry on top of any cake. I bought it at BJ's wholesale club because they had a cute little red sunbeam microwave and toaster that matched it (both in terms of quality and color). With the first wash of the carafe, the white numbers that provide the user with the volume of water inside washed off.
The design of this coffee maker is fantastic, but...

Summary: I have the similar specific 10 cup version(Model CM 33030 CAR). The reason for me wanting to write this review is that I wish that all the manufactures will design their products, keeping their users in mind. The most important design point is to do the essential basic things well, and easy for the users to use. I have bought expensive coffee makers in the past with many fancy features, but brew terrible coffees and cumbersome to use.
Summary: I've been using this coffee maker for less than a week. It's cute, shiny, and looks very nice on the counter. It makes good coffee. It's simple to use. BUT....This morning, I made coffee as usual, flipped the switch and after a few seconds, the carafe went *pop*, cracked and coffee went all over the counter. I can't find a replacement carafe that fits, because of the awkward shape.
Summary: I read earlier reviews about how good looking the coffee pot is, and it's true, but it does feel a bit cheap. I do like the handle of the pot itself, it's comfortable, but it does drip when I pour. It didn't at first, then started to. I do like that it doesn't have all the fancy digital features, just simple on/off.
