This coffee maker offers several great features we aren't used to: the carafe keeps our coffee substitute (we use it for Teeccino, a kind of caffeine-free coffee substitute that's pretty tasty) warm for several hours--though not 8 hours, as I've occasionally heard said; the carafe will not smash when our cats knock it over or when we drop it in the sink; and we can easily program it to have everything ready when we first reach the kitchen in the morning. The price is also very good. My main disappointment with the unit is in pouring the last 1/4 cup or so of liquid: we literally have to turn the carafe upside down to get this last part out. I imagine the same features that are keeping the drink warm are the ones that make it a big pain in the neck to pour out the last of that liquid. Still, that's not too bad a thing to deal with, and overall we're very happy with the unit.
