Positive Product Points

Negative Product Points
vague instructions, incomplete details. Does not tell you how much water to use, only to refer to a non-existent marking inside the chamber. It does stay quite hot after using.
I love this little guy, I start everyday with a brew. (okay nearly, on the rougher ones it might be my french press instead) Is it perfect to the $8 store bought, of course not. But for the price and enjoyment it come right close. I've even started to use it in baking, you have to adjust for the fact that it does make a weaker cup than the professional machines but that's $xxxx versus $xx. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase and have given away several as gifts all with positive results.
its target what else do you need to know. They rarely have more then one or two in stock.
