Summary: I had high hopes for this pot however it disappointed in the following ways: 1. Delivery was way too long 2. After reading instructions, brewed first pot and could not get the lid off until husband came home from work 3.

Pros: hot good coffee!
Cons: lid hard to open, can't put the carafe back in place with extra lid, water gauge on one side, noisy
