Positive Product Points

It looks nice.

Negative Product Points

Coffee maker leaks, the stopper at the bottom of the basket tends to get clogged and water fills the basket and spills hot coffee/grinds all over the unit. The grinder hopper gets stuck and needs to be pried off. The basket door has a release button that all-to-often releases and again, coffee grinds and hot coffee all over the kitchen counter. We resorted to duct tape to keep the door shut. Takes time to clean the unit between each use.

Detailed Commentary

This is the most horrific coffee maker I have ever owned.  Yesterday was the last straw when it started to burn itself up and our kitchen reeks of an electrical fire. We put the coffeemaker in a shallow baking pan because it would occasionally overflow the basket with water because the stopper at the bottom of the basket would get stuck and coffee would overflow, down the kitchen cabinet and onto the floor. The grinder would get stuck and I would need to pry it out. The lid broke because of the cheap plastic hinge.  The metal carafe developed a leak and coffeee/water seeped into the two walls. Don't know how that could have happened.  This was a great coffeemaker and even had a couple neighbors buy into this stupid design. They all donated their units after about a year. Now some sucker that thought they were getting a good deal at Goodwill are having to put up with this piece of crap.

This is a great coffeemaker if you like waking up to hot coffee grinds all over your kitchen floor and you really enjoy spending five minutes a day cleaning it to get ready for the next pot. After it shorted out yesterday, I can't imagine we are the only ones that experienced this nightmare product.  I'm only writing this so that any potential buyers are steered away and not have to put up with what we have gone through.  Hopefully, I can find a replacement through the reviews here.

If anyone is interested in buying mine, let me know before tomorrow when the garbage collector comes stops.

Buying Experience

Yahoo Shopping was great and received the product in a timely fashion.
