The 12 cup grind & brew has it all. Good capacity, excellent features, very stylish. It has a 2-4 hr. adjustable auto shut-off which I use to keep the coffee warm all morning. There is a grinder on/off switch which defaults to ON. This feature should...

This is a nice set it and forget it coffee maker.


Makes great coffee. Grinds coffee beans to a perfect size to get the best flavor from your beans. The only problem is it takes about 12 minutes to brew a pot. For the price, it is a great buy.

Excellent! I'm going to buy one for my parents for Christmas!


I LOVE LOVE LOVE this coffee pot! It makes an amazingly fresh cup of coffee each time you use it. The built in grinder is by far the best feature. It takes up less room and is quieter than my stand alone grinder. Also, it grinds the beans to the...
