Positive Product Points

10-cup Thermal Carafe, clock & timer.

Negative Product Points

Poor design.  Very difficult to properly place the carafe under the filter basket.  Coffee accumulates in filter and overflows instead of dripping into carafe.

Detailed Commentary

I had been looking for a reasonably priced 10-cup thermal drip coffee maker for some time.  I was happy to find this Delonghi 24/7 model at my local Costco.  I set this up before bedtime every night for 10 consecutive days. I found it very difficult to position the carafe properly on its base under the filter holder.  6 out of 10 mornings I came down to a horrible mess.  Coffee and grounds had leaked from the filter holder all over my counter and floor!  Only one or two cups of the coffee/ground mixture made it into the carafe!  After 10 mornings of this I decided that I was not going to get the hang of this and returned it to Costco.

I then purchased the Zojirushi Fresh Brew from Costco.com. for $63 (see my review on this site).  This was also a 10-cup with a thermal carafe.  I have owned it now for 1 week and am very satisfied.

Buying Experience

Shipped in 5 days.  Costco.com charges an extra 5% to non-Costco members.
