This is a wonderful coffee maker. Not only is it fun to watch, but it does make really great coffee. Unlike the glass model, you do not have to stand by closely while the coffee is brewing. It shuts itself off after the correct amount of brewing time, allowing the coffee to flow back into the carafe.
Negative Product Points
Kind of a pain to clean, but the great coffe makes it well worth the effort!
The coffee maker only has a few parts so it is easy to assemble. It has a clock and a timer which is nice for those early mornings. It only takes about six to eight minutes for enough coffee for two. I have used it for nearly a year now, and it still works like a champ. The only thing that needs replacement soon is the filter, which you can pick up on Ebay for cheap. Heck, I only paid $11.00 on Ebay for the coffee maker!! What a deal!!! Knowing how well it works, I would pay full price for this product, I think it's well worth it.
