It is a very good quality coffee maker that looks nice, doesn't use much counter space, keeps coffee hot, but makes an ordinary tasting cup of coffee.
Positive Product Points
Stylish attractive stainless steel finish. High quality vacuum carafe that maintains the temperature. Easy to use clock and timer. East to clean.
Negative Product Points
Brewing temperature could be hotter. #4 filter is 1/4" too tall and wrinkles.
I am not a connoisseur of fine coffee. When brewing I use 1 tablespoon of Folders for two cups of coffee. I make 8 cups each morning, drink two at home and take six to the office in my Nissan Thermos bottle. I bought this coffee maker because it has a vacuum carafe and recieved good reviews. The one I received doesn't live up to the high reviews. It doesn't extract as much flavor, from the common coffee I use, as my Cusinart does. It is a stylish coffee maker that looks good, doesn't use much counter space, keeps coffee hot, and makes an ordinary tasting cup of coffee.
Good price and free shipping at Amazon.com. I paid 49.95 during the Friday sale. I think their regular price is higher.
