Bottom Line: Zojirushi Fresh Brew is the best for the money in its class!  A great performer!!
Positive Product Points

Kept coffee hot for over four hours! Best in category for value and function and ease of use!!

Negative Product Points

A bit loud when making coffee but as long as you do not make coffee during church it is fine. :)  A bit on the tall side but it fits nicely in my coffee corner with similar style DeLonghi espresso machine and Cuisinart Supreme Grind DBM-8 Electric Burr Grinder

Detailed Commentary

I spent hours researching various products for I wanted a Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated
Carafe Coffee Maker.  I was tempted by several higher priced models.  I went with the Zojirushi Fresh Brew after reading the reviews at Coffee Geek, Amazon, and a couple other sites.  I have had a prior positive experience with this brand when I bought an air-pot from Cook's Wares, a high end kitchen store.  I have seen stainless steel carafes priced for the same amount as the Zojirushi Fresh Brew.  

The prior negative reviews are a bit off in my opinion.  Maybe they got an older model and Zojirushi has ironed out the kinks.  In particular, one review said they found water all over the counter most every day they used it.  Not a drop spilled with me.  As long as you can put the carafe where it clearly belongs, no spills.  I found Zojirushi Fresh Brew very easy to use and clean.  The design is great especially with the insulated filter basket.  

The coffee was right at 160 degrees after brewing.  Two hours later coffee was 150 degrees.  Four hours later 140 degrees and still steamy.  Best $60 I ever spent for coffee.  Taste is excellent, too.  I buy whole beans from a local roaster (roasted usually within a few days to two weeks) and grind then brew.  It does better than my Krups Aroma model.

Buying Experience

Costco.com is the way to save on good quality products.
