Positive Product Points

I love the multiple temperature settings, as my wife and friends who come over generally like coffee -less than hot.

Negative Product Points

The only real negative to this machine is that cleaning is a PAIN IN THE RUMP.

Detailed Commentary

While I wouldn't say that the grind and brew is the end-all-be-all of coffee makers, and I also wouldn't say that it should be your one and only if you are a true Coffee Geek.........I still think it's one hell of a machine.

If you only plan on brewing one pot at a time, this will work wonders.  Brewing multiple pots can be a bit tricky, because you have to clean ALL of the parts (and there are a lot of them), and dry them THOROUGHLY.........did I mention that you have to dry them COMPLETELY?!?!?!?  If you don't the grind chamber will just clog.

Also.....some people have said that it brews a weak cup......well......if you haven't figured out yet to leave the cup setting set to ZERO yet......well.....then maybe brewing coffee is too complicated for you anyway. (just kidding)  Setting it to a higher number lets water bypass the brew basket and produces weak coffee.

All in all.....it's a decent pot.  I've actually given away a few so that when I go to a friends house, I can at least have a drinkable cup of coffee.

Buying Experience

They sell them everywhere now, and even at the discounters like Costco and Sams Club
