This coffee maker makes very good coffee that does stay hot for a good length of time in its thermal carafe. But the programming requires you keep the booklet handy at all times. Also, the auto-on feature does not work any longer. I now have to push both the On button and then the Program button to make it start at all. I wrote to Krups for help and all they say is to send it in. The coffee maker is expensive to start with (we paid $100) and with that I expected all functions to work for a very long time.
