This is the worst coffeemaker if you like HOT coffee, which I do. it only delivers warm coffee at best. That being said everything else about this appliance is excellent! This is the best design in carafe I have ever seen with a coffeemaker. There is no dripping when pouring, no having to tip the pot to figure out which angle to pour from so it doesn't drip all over the counter. We chose this particular coffeemaker because there are NO electronics on it to go bad. Just flip the switch. No clock, no timer....we had enough of those. Just realllllly wish it made HOT coffee.
This coffee maker does brew a delicious cup of coffee - it is a simple unit and looks nice. The reason for my less than great review is that the warming area under the pot does NOT keep the coffee warm at all...Even if you leave the pot switch ON, it just doesn't seem like the warming area keeps the coffee hot at all! I'm almost convinced that it doesn't come on and off periodically at all and that the coffee simply cools down to 'tepid' at best within an hour of brewing. Consequently, we find ourselves having to microwave our second cup if we don't drink our first cup in the morning quickly enough. That's a little bit of a disappointment, not to mention a pain in the neck to have to warm it. We both drink our coffee BLACK, so it's NOT that we're adding cold milk or cream! It's barely tepid even though we drink it black!
It does feel kind of cheap and plastic-like when you set it up, but it makes a REALLY good cup of coffee. For $15, I would buy it again in a second.
* The reusable permanent filter is nice to have, and you can just as easily throw a filter in for easy cleanup (I have tried this, and it works fine). * Regarding the warming plate not being very hot, I agree. The coffee is best when you just brew it, and it actually comes out perfect. I actually prefer the less hot plate since my coffee does not burn if I leave it for a bit. I just throw it in the microwave for 20 seconds and its fresh and hot without burn taste. So personal preference.
I would give it 5 stars if the construction was a little bit more solid. After a few weeks of daily use, however, it is still doing just fine.
