Nice machine with a reliable timer and great value for money

Summary: Having been grinding out beans and brewing our coffee in separate machines for the last year, this machine has been wonderful. Compared to our previous model, which was much more expensive and didn't have a built in grinder, the display and timer are great. It has a variety of settings so you can adjust the strength and quantity of coffee you need to brew. It's nice and easy to fill and the side button to "pop-out" the filter compartment is a nice touch.
Summary: great machine for price all positve so far only been using for a month,only down side so far that it will use all water put in so if you put in 12 cups (full) it uses it even though you may have programmed 4 cups this is how it is its worth living with for decent coffee.
Summary: This was bought for us as a gift a year ago to the month. It has been in use every day, perhaps twice a day. We are coffee-holics and like a decent cup of strong coffee. However we found that even on the strong setting we had to supplement the beans with additional ground coffee as it does not grind the beans finely enough.. However - biggest gripe is that after one year it has totally given up - it has just stopped working.
Summary: So glad I found the second review down from "durwin" , this has now become an awesome coffee machine! I suggest you read the instructions there to brew a strong one. I've tried all the cheap drip machines and they're a waste of money, for the price I paid this machine is serous value for money.
Summary: Very pleased with my purchase. The grinder is a little noisy but only runs for a very short time. The timer is an excellent feature, setting the machine to grind and brew ready for the morning is delightful. The machine is compact, stainless steel parts show finger prints easily, care needs to be taken when pouring water into the machine, the spout on the coffee pot is designed for this to be done slowly or you end up with it all down the side.

Summary: The first one ordered was used twice and unfortunately developed a fault ,the grinder stopped working ,however this was quickly and efficiently replaced (thanks to Amazon) and has been in daily use since-about 6 weeks . I must say it beats the old filter coffee maker hands down ,the intensity of the beans (mind you I do like strong and black ) is far superior and the various settings for grinding and coffee strength are both easy to use and affective when ,if like me...
Summary: Further review, As I learn more about "perfect coffee", There is a downside to this machine: A lot of ground coffee collects between grinder and filter. This will get pushed down when you next make coffee..... Thus you are not getting freshly ground coffee each time, unless of course you open the cleaning lid each time. I find opening the cleaning cover is fiddly and fear will damage. Coffee definitely tastes nicer when freshly ground.
Summary: The product concept is ok ( I am a fan of coffee machines that could use ground coffee and coffee beans ). The problem of this coffeemaker is that you could not take the carafe before the brewing is finish , you will have boiled water and coffee all over. At My machine , when I took the carafe , the permanent filter section at the front of the machine open by it self without touching the opening button. It was a mess!
