Pros:Thermal carafe, good brew rate, attractive stylling.
Cons:Top of carafe, burnt plastic taste, low temperature coffee.
The thermal carafe is a good idea, but the top can be tricky to screw in just right. The coffee maker made about ten good cups before it started producing a strange burnt plastic taste. I also noticed low temperature coffee, which I had to reheat after adding cold milk. I wish I could return it to Walmart.
