I must have been out of my mind. This is cheap, cheap, cheap. I would return but do not want to waste my time. I went out and purchased another coffee pot. I will keep this one as a back up or gift it to someone I do not care for. My mistake. Do not buy this one.
Received the coffee maker yesterday and set it up. Tried to use it this morning and it's worthless. Water all over the counter, no coffee in the carafe, making the devil's noise heating the water. I'm asking for a refund. This is the first time I've had a bad experience with anything from Overstock.com, but since it involves my morning coffee, it's a very bad experience indeed.
