Great coffee maker


I like this coffee maker because it is simple to use. I have the permanent coffee filter so I don't have to purchase paper filters. Timer allows me to prepare coffee for brewing the night before and I get to wake smelling the freshly brewed coffee....

Quality Coffeemaker


It simply does a great job of making coffee. It has all the usual items (clock, timer, auto shutoff, etc.) and it works well making good coffee. The only drawback is the reservoir for the water could be a little easier to fill, but it's not a major issue.

Makes good coffee

Access to fill water tank

Very reliable


We had this model coffee maker previously, and it made great coffee daily for well over seven years. When it finally died, we replaced it with the same model. Fast-brewing, easy to set up and program, and best of all, stays on for up to 4 hours. I have...
