Does the job.


A good product that does what it is suppose to. Have read previously that the water indicator is hard to read but have had no such problem myself. Coffee at the bottom of the pot is much warmer than the top, if you do a full 12 cups; due to the heat...

This is a high quality Coffee Machine, which looks a lot better than some of the other rivals at this price range. It looks great in our kitchen, and has lots of options to create a good cup of coffee.

Great Filter coffee maker
