I bought this coffee maker in November 2010 for $125 at Home Depot. I am not satisfied with the coffee maker. It has a aluminum carafe and no reater on the bottom. So you never know how much coffee it had. Switched to a glass coffee pot that also worked fine but always have to microwave our coffee as it is cold shortly after we make coffee. I would recommend you buy a grinder and just filter your coffee and at least you will have hot coffee.
