After reviewing all the comments on the other Quisinart coffee makers, I chose this product! So far it has been terrific! Does not clog at the top like others! Very good product and I really like the 12 c. capacity. The style fits any decor. I would recommend this product to anyone that is looking for this type of coffee maker. Love the idea you can take the caraff w/you if traveling as the coffee stays very hot! The best coffee brewer I have owned....well worth the price. I checked other places and could not find this exact one, yet the others prices on Quisinarts were way out there.
