I have owned a Kuerig coffee maker and recently purchased this coffee maker because I wanted to be able to make more than a cup of coffee. This Coffee Maker is great. It has a simple design, it is easy to program, and cleans up with little effort. This...

Great little coffee pot.


Never had any problems out of it except if the part that holds the filter is off it will over flow and go every where but I consider that more user error than product error. Makes a great pot of coffee in a fairly short amount of time. I have had this...

Good deal for a non-coffee snob


I would never be considered a coffee-snob, so this coffee pot works well for me. I recieved this coffee maker as a gift last year for Christmas from a niece. We were not supposed to go over twenty bucks a piece so if she held to the terms of our gift...
