Pros:Thermal carafe does keep the coffee warm better than a typical glass pot.
Cons:Leaks Does not grind worth a darn Nothing "Programable" except the timer to start
Worst coffee maker ever! This unit will overflow and leak all over your counter top making a very large mess.
Grinder has no control adjustment, meaning the grind is the same every time, which is VERY COURSE, resulting in tastless coffee when it does work. More often than not, the grinder chute will become clogged and not deliver ANY ground coffee to the filter basket. So you end up with a pot full of hot water and nothing else!
The only adjustment on this machine is either "1-4 Cups" or "full pot". It doesn't make much of a difference which setting you choose since there will probably be no grounds in the filter.
Very poor design!!! I cannot stress this enough. The grinder will be full of condenced water drops, caking up with grounds and preventing the coffee from falling into the filter. This device takes about 4 times longer to clean than to brew. You will need to clean and thoroughly dry every interior surface which is difficult. There are about 10 plastic items that need to be removed to be cleaned!
