This drip coffee maker is very attractive and easy to use. The overall look is stainless and black and blends well with my kitchen appliances. It was easy to operate, both in terms of setting the automatic brew feature and clock. The only negative comment is that it does not have a see-through feature showing the level of the water being poured into the container. I purchased the refurbished model and have been using it for about a week during which time it has performed well. It also matches the Cuisinart toaster which I purchased from Overstock last year.
