It is fine, but I have to resign myself to cleaning ...

Summary: This carafe is the spilliest thing I have ever owned. It is literally impossible to pour from it without getting coffee everywhere. I am a lifelong coffee drinker, and have purchased and used many machines. I bought this one for work as a cheaper second machine.
Excerpt: If you are looking for an economical coffee pot you can't go wrong with this West Bend 12-Cup Coffee Maker. The first thing I noticed about this coffee maker was the space saving feature it had due to the design. It took up less counter space than other 12 cup coffee makers I had in the past.
Summary: I was looking for a coffee maker that would be able to stay turned on while I was drinking the pot. Sometimes I drink very slowly so the 2 hour shut off kind of hurt on my other coffee maker. I actually got around that by turning it off and back on after about an hour and a half.
Excerpt: A really good coffee maker for price paid. It heats up quickly and does not get any coffee grounds in pitcher when brewing. It is also ideal for home brewed tea. Just place several tea bags into container and it will brew them just like coffee grounds.Brew PerformanceBrews quickly and quietly and...
Summary: I bought this coffee maker and had it about a week, after brewing a full pot of coffee i picked up the pot to pour myself a cup and the glass pot broke from the handle shattering and sending scalding hot coffee everywhere.
Summary: This would be a great coffee maker except that the carafe has a relatively wide, shallow pour area. That means that if you try to pour more than 10 cups of water from it into the heating chamber the water will spread out and splash beyond the chamber.
Summary: I'm usually not so picky as coffee makers go. They don't really have to do much, right? This one works as expected, but is lacking substance. It seems to be all-plastic while makes it feel a bit flimsy and cheap. The included permanent filter is great, though!
Summary: Great coffee maker for the money. It brews coffee and has a great reusable filter. No paper filters needed. Minimal coffee grounds into the pot when brewing. White color males cleanup easy as opposed to a black one.
