Negative Product Points

No one makes a product like this any more.

Detailed Commentary

I've been using my Krups AromaControl 188 brewer for over 20 years, so longevity is a positive point.  This product is unique with a thermocoil in the brew basket that holds water in the basket until the grounds are fully saturated, resulting in a very robust extraction.

My model has a glass carafe.  There are also versions with a thermal carafe, which I think would be preferable as the burner plate doesn't treat my coffee well over time.

The last model in the line was the 229.  For those that know, it's still worth having.  Just check out the prices for a 10 year old brewer on "the large auction site"!

Buying Experience

Didn't realize what I got when I bought it, but have come to appreciate it more and more.
