      Absolutely LOVE this machine! The programmable features are life changing! I could live without the hot water side but it is a very handy feature when I use it. Great for the single serving oatmeal cups, hot chocolate and tea and I don’t have to fire up the stove to use my tea kettle.

      Makes a great pot of coffee. Easily programmed. Only disappointment is the hot water system for making tea. It tends to leak. Mainly use it for the coffee maker and that's great!

      Well worth the money. The coffee brews fast as does the hot water system. The variable heat plate lets me make coffee for myself and my husband (who wakes up 1 hr after me) without it tasting burnt. The hot water system is an added bonus as our son and I both enjoy hot chocolate while my husband makes tea. We've already taken advantage of making Cup of Soup with it being cold season now. This is a fabulous addition to any kitchen as it takes the place of multiple gadgets and manages to be stylish. The carafe is easy to clean (dishwasher safe) and DOES NOT DRIP! The water reservoir is easy to view on the side of the machine unlike the regular version of the coffee maker without the hot water system (you have to peer inside the water tank). Exactly what we needed. A+

      So far so good, we love this coffee maker! My husband drinks about 4 cups of tea a day so this is perfect for him! My coffee definitly tastes less bitter than it did with my old cheaper maker. I like the carbon water insert filters, I think that does help with the taste of the water. The area you pour the water into for the "hot water" section is large and convient however the area you pour the water into for the cofee maker is much smaller and takes a little more focus... But it's worth it for us. The water heats up very quickly as well. I find myself refilling the water side more frequently than I anticipated though, it seems to hold enough water for about 3 cups of tea. We use it alot! The fill water light, lights up when it's low on water, which is nice. If you don't use hot water or drink beverages other than coffee, I would NOT recommend this. This is designed for people who drink other hot beverages on a "regular basis". If you are primarily a cofee drinker, get a regular pot. This unit is a bit larger than a regular coffee maker, so it does take up a little more space. I have not used the hot water for oatmeal or grits yet, but I'm looking forward to trying that out. Overall GREAT buy... we love it, looks stylish, great performance, would buy again!

      You better be there with your cup because as soon as it's done brewing, the burner shuts off and there is NO reheat function.

    • Nice system, but could be better.
      Verified Purchase

      My complaints about this product are that the amount of space given for you to pour in water on the top to brew coffee is very small which makes it easy to spill your water. Also, the reservoir for the hot water system sometimes drips water, making a mess on the counter.

      Worked well but was too tall for my cabinet area. Also does not have a way to see how much water you have in pot on outside of pot. If you are short and can't see down into pot that is inconvenient. Loved the hot water feature!

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "does this BOIL the water or just heat it up?? that makes a huge difference as how healthy/and how it tastes"

      • A:

        I wouldn't say it boils the water but it does heat the water, where it gets very hot.

      • A:

        Hmmm, it sounds like it boils it but not in the sense you might think of in a tea kettle. It gets very hot

    • Q:

      "How is the water added?"

      • A:

        The top has a lift area and you put it in easily! :)

      • A:

        The coffee side and hot water side each have a lid on the top that opens to put in your water. Both sides have filters for better tasting coffee and hot water.

      • A:

        Lift top to tea side and add there. This side you can fill storage to max line. Then lift top to coffee side and add water in back. This side requires the amount of water you wish to brew. There is a measurer if you look at the white stripe on the left side, on the outside. Fill to desired number of cups of water based on that.
