Summary: I bought this because the ad led me to believe it was battery operated but instead it was the milk frothier that came with it that was battery operated. If that wasn't bad enough, they charged me shipping to return it!
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: The look of this coffee maker is 5 stars. -Gorgeous! I love that you can pull out the water tank, easy to handle as it has a carrying handle. The coffee tastes great; I grind my own. My choice is the Ruta Maya Organic Brand (and always use filtered water) smooth and delicious. I would only add two things to this coffee maker; an auto off function and a preset function. I also bought the matching toaster.
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.
Summary: I ignored some of the other reviews about this product because I liked the way it looked. But, the chrome finish is just plastic and eventually starts to peel off. When you pour a cup of coffee, it spills all over the place - no matter how slowly you pour it. And, there is an opening on top of the coffee maker that allows steam to come out.
Summary: After reading several other reviews I purchased hoping it wouldn't leak when pouring the coffee. I was very pleased to have one that worked perfectly, not sure what the problem was there? Looks great, just needs auto shutoff function to make it better in case you forget to turn it off like I problably will. overall exactly what I was looking for rather than a standard black coffee maker.
