Summary: This is the best 5 cup coffee maker I have ever owned. I have a penchant for buying small coffee makers so I have collected many in the last 20 years...This one is outstanding. Easy to use, easy to wash and hot coffee ready in 5 minutes!
The innovative basket design is efficient and contains the grinds in the cone filter in an easy to dispose manner

Summary: A unique and innovative brewing system. Grind basket in carafe; seems to hold flavor and aroma within. Another reviewer complained regarding pouring. My experience is that any glass, lipped carafe, may pour well or not. Just adjust your pouring actions. The five cup size fits my needs.
Easy to make really good coffee. Think Xterra - Everything you need and nothing you don't.

Summary: I ended up buying this coffee maker as a replacement for a 3 year old Cuisinart that quit (you know - just after the warranty was over). A word about that: I called Cuisinart and they were no help. I liked the coffee maker so I was willing to return it for repair. They don't repair them.
Summary: The instruction manual took me a while, but now that the coffee pot is off and running, I find that it makes very good coffee indeed with the flip of one switch. No esoteric programming schedules or dog and pony shows. Just a well constructed old-style coffee maker that works.
Still makes consistently good drip coffee after 5 years

Summary: This morning, as is usual, I made a carafe of freshly ground coffee with my Zorijushi Zutto: 5 demi-cups total which equals about 2 large mugs. I've always liked the fact that, unlike other monsters, this good-looking thing is compact and maximally productive, discourages wasteful use and occupies...
Summary: I received my "new" coffeepot yesterday. and am enjoying my 3rd brew as I type this. As a retired engineer, I was surprised at it's simple, nearly idiot-proof design. It takes up about 1/3 of the space as my previous 12 cup coffeemaker.

Summary: Checked my Amazon account and surprised we've had it so long. Read some reviews and decided it was time to write my own. Lots of other reviewers have gone over the features so thought I'd give results relating to long term usage and counter some of the speculative reviews, e.g.
Summary: If your looking for a coffee pot that will brew a small amount of great tasting coffee, your search is over. I love the simple, functional design of this pot. Like the fact that the coffee grinds are contained inside the carafe. It's easy to clean and fits my needs perfectly.
Summary: I've had this coffee maker for 4 years now, It's the perfect size for one or 2 people. It's easy to use, doesn't take up a lot of space, and it makes great coffee. I just don't understand why it's so expensive. Also..it's really hard to find replacement carafe's.
Cons: price, replacement parts hard to find, sturdy
