The MT5 looks great. Easy fit in allocated space on kitchen counter top. The carafe was convenient and the unit was well designed.
Negative Product Points
If you want hot coffee, then you might want to consider another unit. This one failed completely in that department.
After researching, I decided upon the MT500 when my Bodum eSantos self destructed all too soon. I read reviews from several sources, including how this coffee maker got it right with the brewing temperature. I measured this several times and the hottest water I ever got during brewing was 184 degrees. I preheated the carafe with 200 degree water for 3-5 minutes before use. Once the brewing process finished, I checked the temp in the carafe and found it to be 174 degrees, despite the preheat. The first sip was good, but became cool in the cup all too quickly. Even my wife, who does not like her coffee hot, thought the coffee was cool and did not remain a good temperature for drinking for very long in her cup. I returned the unit and must say I was most disappointed in the performance. The store offered to let me try another one, in case that one was an anomaly, but I decided to try a different brand.
WIlliams Sonoma provided excellent customer service with no questions during the return. They sent me home with a different coffee maker with instructions to return it if is was not satisfactory.
