Positive Product Points

Keeps the coffee hot all day!

Negative Product Points

Controls are the same color as the body, all black, making them tough to see in dim light.  LCD display is also very difficult to see in dim light.  Only 8 cup capacity.

Detailed Commentary

Over all, it's not a bad machine.  Nothing special about it, it makes the same coffee that all the rest do.  It's best feature is that the insulated  pot will keep the coffee hot all day long.   Since the body of the unit is black, and the controls are also black, they are difficult to see in dim light as is the LCD display . (thus the low grade)
The over all design of the pot is outstanding.  It opens easily, pours great, and doesn't splash and dribble. They put all the engineering into the pot.  The rest of the machine in unfortunatly standard.  The hight is low enough to fit under the counters and the pot sits within the unit without regard to position, so it's not picky about just slapping it back in place.  It's faster then most about making the coffee and it's quiet except for the small chime that rings at the end of the brewing cycle. (no way of turning it off).  I don't know the price, but like most coffee makers of this grade and style, I would NOT pay over $50 US for it. One last point, it beats the heck out of any of the Krups machines that I've ever owned.

Buying Experience

it was a gift.
