Brewing up to 5 cups of coffee, it makes a good choice for small offices and households with only a few coffee drinkers. This coffee maker model by GE has a good set of features for those who want less hassle in preparing freshly brewed coffee.
* The coffee maker has a programmable brew feature. The programmable brew allows you to set the timer in advance, and the cofee maker will begin brewing at your designated time.
* The digital coffee maker also has a pause and serve feature. The pause and serve feature allows you to grab a cup of coffee, even if the coffee is still in the process of brewing.
* This coffee maker also has the non-stick warming plate. The non-stick warming plate helps minimize mess. With this type of plate, coffee stain is easy to remove from the plate, making it easier to clean and maintain.

* The removable nylon filter ensures that the component is easy to wash and clean, making sure that there will be no residue that will affect the flavor of a fresh batch of brewed coffee.
* This coffee maker also uses a charcoal filter to enhance the flavor of the coffee.
* The auto shut off is another useful feature. The unit has a one-hour auto shut-off feature, which ensures that your coffee maker will
stop consuming energy when not in use.
One of the good things about this coffee maker, according to consumers, is that it is fairly easy to clean. After use, you can just remove some components and wash them thoroughly. The warming plate is non-stick so cleaning it isn't a problem as well.
Because the unit has an automatic shut-off, even if you have forgotten to turn off the coffee maker before you leave home, you can rest easy that the machine will not overheat and cause fire hazards.
The coffee brewed in this unit also tastes good. This is because of the charcoal filter that enhances the flavor of the coffee.
The carafe spout of this unit is specially designed to prevent the coffee from dripping when you pour it into a cup. Another great thing about this product is that it is relatively cheaper than other coffee makers with programmable timers and almost the same set of features.
There are also complaints about this unit. One of these is that it has a very small serving capacity, only best for small groups of coffee drinkers. Another downside to buying this digital coffee maker is that getting a replacement for a broken carafe is nearly impossible.
Some have also reported that it is difficult to find a replacement for filters. Instead of 5 cups, some say that you get less than what is advertised. Pros
