I gave this as a Christmas gift to my mom for when she has my siblings and I at home and we all want french pressed coffee in the morning (selfish gift, I know). We've also used it when we have company over for dinner and brunches and it has worked great. I love that's it's stainless steel and easy to clean.
I just got a smart energy meter and realized my Mr Coffee was using tons of electricity. This makes wonderful coffee (I heat the water in a few minutes in the microwave first, so still using a little energy!) and it stays warm a long time. I love it.
Very nice product. My husband wanted one that was stainless and glass only and no plastic. This one is very well made and and the only plastic on this product is on the inside of the lid, but no where that the boiling water touches. It makes a great cup of coffee and he and my son both are enjoying their cups of Joe very much!
