Advantages

The machine comes with a stylish design and makes a great and smooth cup of coffee when paired with quality beans and filtered water. You can choose between regular and strong brewing strengths, both of which produce equally smooth cups of coffee.

The decanter lid and the permanent filter are dishwasher safe, saving you the time for washing and cleaning. The cleaning alert lets you know when the machine needs to be cleaned. There?s also a removable silicone decanter mat that makes serving easy. The Pause n? Serve feature is reliable.

Disadvantages

One of the main complaints when it comes to this model is that it doesn?t produce a cup of coffee that is as hot as desired. Those who like to add milk or cream to their coffee may want to preheat their milk to avoid lowering the temperature some more.

Another complaint is that the carafe tends to snag against the brew basket when in the process of removing the carafe from the machine. The outer housing also tends to separate from the basket tray and should have been reinforced with a plastic or steel band. Also, there is no opening at the top where the steam can pass through.

Cons
- Coffee does not come out as hot as desired
