Advantages

This coffee maker allows you to get your favorite cup of coffee even if the machine is still brewing with its Pause 'n Serve function. Another advantage of this model is that it has an indicator light for its on and off switch. This makes it easier for you to determine if the machine is on or off. And since this coffee maker is water filtration adaptable, you can remove up to 97% of chlorine from the water for a great-tasing brew.

It's also easier to make this machine fit into any modern kitchen because of its stylish black color and silver accents. If you have the habit of forgetting to turn off your coffee maker after use, you'll definitely appreciate the machine's two-hour automatic shut off function.

Disadvantages

One disadvantage of this model is that it isn't available in any other color. Those who would like a more colorful kitchen appliance would have to choose another type or model. This model also doesn't have a warming plate for your cup.

I agree with 'Garbage' commentor...
by: Anonymous

We have had this maker for approximately 6 months now and it has never worked properly in one respect - the water goes straight through the coffee basket and produces very weak coffee. The water is not evenly disbursed through the grind basket, just comes out like a faucette. What we do is to put the coffee and water in place, open the lid, and turn it on. We watch till the basket is half filled with water, stir the grinds a little and put the pot under the spiggot to allow the basket to drain. Once the basket drains away, we remove the pot and allow the basket to partially fill again. Aside from this, it is an attractive unit, timer works well, and we like the double window for filling with water. Just wish we could set the timer and wake up to a decent pot!

for some strange reason the water is going straight through the coffee grounds causing the coffee to be very weak as not all the grounds have contact with the water, I am returning this piece of crap

An excellent coffee maker
by: Anonymous

Pros
- easily removable parts for cleaning
- delay timer start
- easy to make varying cup sizes
- quick and quiet operation
- auto shut off

Cons
- spring on filter basket easily clogged and therefore non functional without frequent cleaning
- buttons too easily hit (
- water can easily sluice down the outside of the filter basket when filling the water tank

This is a 12 cup automatic drip coffee maker. This is an excellent coffee maker for home or small office use. It can easily be filled to any cup amount you like via the nice see through window on the water tank with clear cup markings. The pot itself is of a good size and shape and is relatively easy to pour without spilling or dripping. The lid for the pot is readily enough removed for easy cleaning. The filter basket is removable and is of average ease to clean. The hot water arm moves so as to be out of the way when removing the filter basket, and the top has a flap to place the arm in proper position should you forget before closing. The buttons, although easy to set up, are also occasionally easily hit on accident, changing the time or turning the machine on or off. The spring valve on the bottom of the filter basket also requires very regular cleaning so as not to become plugged and therefore non-functional. The cord is a good length, which is rare in today's home electric appliances.
