The pot brews a decent pot of coffee. The pot lacks one feature that disappoints me. There is no on/off switch. That fact was not obvious in the description of the pot on your site. This means that the only way to turn the pot off is to pull the plug from the outlet while it is drawing electricity.
This worked great for 4 months. I used it to have hot water for tea etc, not to brew coffee. Then I started seeing dark specks in the water. Tried to clean out the inside - helped a little. A couple weeks later I was wiping out the inside where the spigot attaches to the main container -THE SPIGOT FELL OFF AS THE AREA AROUND IT WAS TOTALLY CORRODED. It just crumbled. My previous urn lasted for years. Don't buy this or you'll be sorry.
Our Office needed to replace our coffee urn of 7 years and was looking for a decent replacement. This fits the bill well. It is a no frills coffee maker but delivers decent flavor and retains heat throughout the morning. So that you know, This is a percolator type coffee maker not a drip machine. We still use our coffee filters but I don't think that they're necessary. My only suggestion would be to add an On/Off switch. You have to unplug the unit when you are finished. Overall a good bang for the buck.
The coffee urn fits all our needs except one...it doesn't make hot coffee...it's more like luke warm, we have to heat it in the mircowave before drinking...which was a big disappointment...however it does save me from having to make coffee every couple of hours...
This coffee maker is a toatal piece of junk. It perks the coffee and then lets it cool and cool and cool. It doesn't seem to be equipped with a thermostat that keeps the temp. at a proper level. It would be fine if I were only looking to make iced coffee. For hot coffee its useless.
This coffee urn starts when plugged in. There is no on/off on the unit. Plugging and unplugging works as the on/off (although the unit does stop brewing when ready). I would prefer a unit that I can plug in and then turn on when needed.
