Detailed Commentary

I've owned this coffeemaker for some time and have been using it since I got married - almost two months ago now. This is a daily use item for the wife and I. We both appreciate the simple pushbutton operation and as a serious coffee geek myself I appreciate getting the proper extraction out of my coffee - you learn quickly whose coffee is roasted properly and whose isn't. My gripes mentioned - it's really tall...we have taller than normal cabinets in our house so this thing fits, but still. And it only brews a little over 40 ounces. On a good morning this is a cup each for us with a little left over. The only other thing - and this is a nit-pick item - I can't use a permanent filter in it. The filter holder design won't accept it. Otherwise this is probably the best automatic drip coffee maker I've used. It brews hot, fast, and quiet.

Buying Experience

I bought this from Costco - membership has it's privileges and this encounter was equal to the service I've recieved in their stores.
