Advantages

The TFTX85 is easy to use and is just the right size for entertaining. Its stylish black finish and stainless steel accents will help it blend it with the rest of your kitchen.

You can set the timer to brew on the desired time so that you can wake up to the energizing aroma of coffee in the morning and with the cheap price, this unit is inexpensive enough to replace.

Coffee comes out tasting great even after several months of use and without changes in the flavor, which often happens with other brands.

Disadvantages

Due its small size, this is not the best option for those looking for a coffee maker for large batches. The thermal carafe is often not enough to keep the coffee warm if you want piping hot coffee.

There are two holes close to the water fill line that is designed to prevent overfilling that causes spills and leaks when the machine is overfilled. The brewing system also causes the coffee filter to tip over, which results to messy coffee grounds all over the inside of the coffee maker and even into the reservoir.

This also leads to leaks all over the kitchen counter. When the pot is overheated, it also overheats the handle which makes handling the carafe impossible.
