This coffee maker has been in use less than one month. It now leaks when you pour and the electronics have a mind of their own. There is definately a problem with the on/off button. Sometimes the brew cycle does not complete, because it shuts off before it's done. The machine itself is attractive and a good size for our kitchen; on the smaller side. The thermos does a good job of keeping the coffee hot. It is a small 10 cups. The brew itself makes a pleasant tasting coffee. We do not use the automatic program features, so I can't speak to that. It's a shame this machine is malfunctioning, as we do like it's features. Maybe we just got a lemon!
