I purchase one in December 2012. In Sept. 2013 it stopped brewing. I sent it in for a replacement. The replacement's carafe leaks as you pour water into the reservoir and while you pour a cup of coffee, leaving drips of coffee. Luckily, I saved my original carafe. It doesn't leak. Major complaint I have is with the design of the reservoir lid. When you open it to take out the grinds or to pour water in to make coffee, the condensation drips down the back outside of the coffee maker and onto your countertop. Why can't they design this differently to stop this. You are constantly wiping up water. Also the carafe should not leak at the lip.
