Soft plastic parts.

Detailed Commentary

After a bad expreince with the Capresso CoffeeTeam Therm, the MT 500 with the Capresso Infinity grinder is much better.  We've had no spills, no messes, and good coffee every morning since we got it.  Once we got used to the controls, it is simply and straightforward to operate.  We like the insulated carafe that keeps the coffee warm without cooking it on a hot plate like so many other designs.
The downside is the soft plastic parts that comprise most of the construction of the machine.  I get the impression that the build quality is a small step above a $15 unit.  Will it stand the test of time and continue to make good coffee for years ot come?

Buying Experience

Bought at Williams-Sonoma.  I know I'm paying top retail dollar, but didn't find it any cheaper elsewhere and they have a good return policy and customer service.
