Positive Product Points
easy to use and clean; brews hot. good function and value. the stainless version is not bad looking. no carafe to break.
Negative Product Points
will only keep coffee hot for a little while.
If you need the coffee to stay hot for more than 15 minutes, you should transfer it to a stainless carafe or mug. It is actually quite pleasant to use and brews hot enough for good extraction. If you use filtered water and good, medium ground coffee in the right proportion, you should get a good cup of joe. We have an espresso maker, but sometimes it is nice to wake up to the smell of a regular batch of java. Very easy to program and not so many buttons that would confuse. I had used one at my cousin's house and really enjoyed the ease of use. I would recommend it to anyone who does not enjoy using a glass carafe.
