We have had our machine for more than two years and I have spent a considrable time cleaning it... why, because of the pot design you can never quite fully clean it out and then it gets nasty gunk in. Every few weeks I need a long scredriver to undo things, remove the float devise from its housing and then scrub and rinse thoroughly (you cannot believe the stuff that accumulates around the plastic float). Honestly what would make this machine nicer is if the pot was a simpler carrafe... but it's not and thus a clunky waste of space.
I love hot coffee on demand and ordered this for that reason. After having it for a while now I wanted to give it a review. Everything is pretty perfect, except that when my husband removes the bottom tray to get his tall on the go coffee mug in there, there is always water pooling under the pot. We can't figure out why. It's easy to program and easy to clean. Happy enough!
I've had this now for a few years and decided it needs a review. I have had Keurig coffeemakers and other high end coffeemakers and this one easily is the best of all I have ever owned. Simply load your reservoir with water, put the filter in and your coffee grinds and press brew! Wipe the inside heater with a paper towel every couple days and it will make fantastic coffee. Stop spending hundreds and hundreds on coffee makers that clog up and spew coffee that taste like blended tires. Buy one of these and you wont regret it!
Had this about a year and of course, being a coffee maker, used nearly every day. Uses by far less coffee than other machines I have used. Nice to have a 4 hour window from brewing until it shuts off. During this time, a hot cup of coffee is ready to be dispensed (rather than poured). Cannot understand why anyone would prefer a Keurig where you wait for each cup to brew. This machine is fast. Two small negatives. 1. The gauge showing amount of coffee left is terribly inaccurate. 2. The black lettering on the tinted glass water container is hard to read. Don't let these small negatives keep you from getting this machine. Set the timer and wake to a great cup of Joe.
this product stopped working after about 14 months. previous coffee maker was given away to update to this and is still working for the person gifted to after several years of use by me. I did not take warrantee because I trusted brand name, my mistake!
This coffeemaker is bar far the best coffeemaker I have ever had. The coffee stays hot for quite a while and the gauge lets you know how much coffee is left to drink. The gauge is a little like a car fuel gauge....it stays at full for the first few cups then moves downward. I like the light that comes on when you press the handle to fill the coffee cup.
