Not user-friendly


The basket is very awkwardly designed. Not good when trying to make coffee in the early a.m. The top to the carafe is also poorly designed, is difficult to operate, and the gasket falls off.

Finally a 12 cup thermal pot

I have mixed views on this coffee maker. The carafe keeps fluids hot (or cold) for a very long time and is sleek enough to be used on the table. However, the opening in the neck is very narrow, so you have to tip the pot to horizontal for it to pour...

Filter Easily Clogs


The 3rd time I used this coffee maker the filter clogged, filled with the hot water. When I went to see what was going on, I opened the filter door and burning hot water ran down my arm.
