Pros: Great coffee at a bargain with all the bells & whistles.
Cons: Small learning curve with programming as in all electronics.
My model is CM1010b, maybe the b means it's been fixed, cuz this Perfect Pour carafe is fantastic, not one drop when pouring. Makes great coffee, and we are picky coffee drinkers who grind our own beans. Used to have a Bunn, expensive and fast and good coffee but the carafe dripped all over the place. For $29 at Walmart this is a great bargain. Love the features: cleaning option, programmable with a clock, reusable gold filter, 1-4 cup option, and sneak-a-cup (had NONE of these with $120 Bunn). Looks nice on the counter too. There may be a small learning curve with the programmable features, but that's a given with any electronics. I highly recommend this coffeemaker and I am a frugal bargain shopper who doesn't recommend things often!
