Summary: I loved this coffeemaker until I hated it. I bought this in August, 2012 for $129. A few months ago, it began to leak during brewing. Instead of getting a carafe of coffee, I get coffee on the counter, on the floor, and dangerously, on the exterior of the lid so you tend to get scalded when you pick...
Summary: This is a terrific coffee maker and I love the taste of the coffee but unfortunately it quit working about 2 wks after I bought it and I think this model is discontinued so I am out of luck again! When it works it is the best, but if it shorts out and doesn't work it the pits!
Summary: Lased 3 and half months. Now it won't brew more than 2 cups without shutting off. I did have some problems with coffee running all over the counter top like others, but when it worked, it made great coffe.
Summary: I took note of the reviews posted before buying, and the unit is the same as my old Starbucks Barista 12 cup. I haven't had the 'counter coffee' problems that alot of the reviewers claim. I kept my old unit for parts (just in case). Great coffee, stays hot for over 6 hours.
Summary: This is the newer, and almost exact version of the Starbucks Barrista. I had the Starbucks version for about 9 years, until it quit working. Over the last few years I have been looking for its replacement as other coffeemakers just didn't measure up.
Summary: Sadly, this review may be too late to save this great product. I really don't understand the negative reviews on this unit, though it is not a traditional "Mr Coffee" type unit, it's also not so complicated that my Rocket Science degree is required to use it.
Summary: We actually purchased this from a major department store on sale for much less. We thought WOW what a deal. Even though many of the reviews we read were negative we thought maybe some were operator error and we bought it anyway.
Summary: I thought I was getting a quality coffee maker since it had Wolfgang Puck on it. It leaked around the top on first use. The timer didn't work properly. I was able to seal the top leak and use the pot for 6 weeks before the timer would cause the unit to only brew for about 30 seconds and shut off.
