I bought this for my husband for Father's Day. He had tried one at a friends house & really liked the taste of the coffee better than our drip pot. I have been looking for one for him but they were all high priced for the size of the pot and amount of coffee. I found this one on Overstock & the price was right! We like the stainless steel looks as it would fit in any kitchen. My husband says it is very easy to use, but noted that it doesn't require coarse ground coffee to work. He tried that due to the instructions & didn't care for the taste. The next time he ground the coffee finer & said it tasted a lot better. Using this has cut down on the creamer he uses also, he said he doesn't want to ruin the taste of the coffee! So this was a money saver purchase! lol Thanks Overstock!
This is a nice coffeemaker. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the portion of the carafe' that is not covered by the stainless steel is not protected and might break if you accidently hit it on something. I am extra careful with it but it could be a concern with a household more active and rambunctious than mine. It's well made and attractive and large enough for a mornings worth of coffee. I'm very happy with this product.
The service is not near as nice as in the pictures. The amount of gold not he handles varies by utensil with many of the forks having a full gold tone on the hilt with no overall definition. Like others I have noted that the smaller items like forks and spoons are very light in weight and don't feel as heavy as true stainless would. The case is clad in fake leather but overall nice looking. Interesting it lid had a sleeve much like a briefcase would. For the money I expected a bit more but it is not bad enough to return.
Looks great, works great, love the ceramic liner on the lid. My only quibble is I wish the screen assembly was just a wee bit larger in circumference. While it doesn't fall down into the coffee while brewing (as others have experienced) it seems like it could at any moment. My experience is largely with Bodum presses and the only reason I moved to this one is my bad habit of breaking them. The stainless surround should help with that. I also leave it out on display as it really is attractive!
