Positive Product Points

The clock works...

Negative Product Points

The labeling rubbed off within 3 months, the cleaning is atrocious, the grinder is noisy and haphazard, the coffee is very weak.

Detailed Commentary

I wanted to like this coffee maker, but as time went by more and more parts failed, broke or just did not work effectively. The grinder worked (poorly) for about a year. The cover on the pot leaked when poured more than a drip at a time and the weighted spout cover broke very quickly. The labeling just sloughed off after 3 months and the lid broke completely off after 1 1/2 years. The process of cleaning is enough to make you settle for preground (shudder) rather than clean and thoroughly dry to avoid losing half of the grind stuck within the labyrinth of grounds delivery. The oilier beans will not  get to the filter at all and the size of the beans holder is such that it will make fairly strong coffee if you put about 7 (out of the possible 10) cups of water in.

Buying Experience

Foley's is not knowledgable about their products.
