Bottom Line: Excellent design, brews Hot coffee quietly, great value!
Positive Product Points

Excellant design, simple yet sophisticated, brews HOT coffee very quietly, handy separate water container, very convienent push button dispense lid.

Negative Product Points

Keeps coffee hot for only about two hours, even with preheating pot.

Detailed Commentary

I looked at many coffee makers as I transitioned from Mr. Coffee and preground Sam's club coffee, and this seems the best for the price. What a taste difference! Never going back to preground store coffee again!

Unlike the Delonghi Elite I tried, the coffee seems to be brewed at a higher temperature. The push button dispenser is very well done, best design that I've seen. Wish the coffee would stay hotter, but  I guess that's the trade-off for stainless steel (more durable) over that of glass (better heat retention).

Also like how quiet this unit is, very nice without the loud sputtering at the end of the brewing cycle you hear on most other coffee makers. Compared to the Capresso MT-500, this unit is smaller and would probably fit under more cabinets.

Buying Experience

Great deal when on sale for $99, including two 1lb bags of Starbucks coffee, so actually it costs abut $85.
