I love this coffeemaker - the fact that it has no carafe was just the feature I wanted. However, after about 2 months, it literally just stopped working. No power to the unit at all. The manufacturer has replaced the unit without question a total of (4) times. Every coffeemaker exhibited the same issue, as if some chip inside the unit malfunctions after a certain period of time. The longest one unit worked was 6 months and I thought I finally had a winner. Alas, we had a power failure, and the pot never came on again - although every other appliance in the kitchen was fine. I regret that for this reason, and after so many units, I had to finally go with a Bunn.
