The machine worked great for first month, though it was definitely slower to brew than my previous machine. Out of the box it took more than 10 minutes for an 8-cup batch. Still, I liked the front access. At some point, less than 3 months out of the box, it started taking much longer, 40 minutes to brew an 8-cup batch. And no, it's not blocked by hard water deposits. The brew-line tubing is clear. It's just a cheap piece of technology.
