Not a good coffee maker

 

The thermal carafe is a good idea, but the top can be tricky to screw in just right. The coffee maker made about ten good cups before it started producing a strange burnt plastic taste. I also noticed low temperature coffee, which I had to reheat after...

Thermal carafe, good brew rate, attractive stylling

Top of carafe, burnt plastic taste, low temperature coffee

Thermal carafe is a good idea. Much better than a heat plate

Does not get water hot enough. Sour, horrible tasting coffee every time

Just a so-so coffee maker

 

Carafe means no warming plate required to bake the coffee.

Water never gets hot enough, coffee is only warm.

Just a so-so coffee maker

 

Bought this a week ago, and have been disappointed. The thermal carafe seemed like a good idea, vs. the warming plate. Unfortunately, on this machine, the coffee doesn't even come out hot -- just very warm -- so it's cold from the first cup to the...
