Pros: Looks pretty. Coffee tastes great.
Cons: Every complaint you can have about a coffee maker. This is them!
The first Mr. Coffee Maker I purchased was wet inside & smelled like coffee, an indication that someone had used this unit and returned it(now I know why). After exchanging it for an unused unit it became clear why it was returned. Hard to pour water into coffee maker without spilling onto counter. Water (condensation from inside the coffee maker)leaks down the outside back of the unit into the cord housing whenever you lift the lid to remove the filter basket. With every use I have to wipe off my counter. When you wash or rinse the pot it is hard to drain the water out of it. The same goes for pouring the last ounce of coffee out. The plastic collar that's around the top of the pot doesn't fit tight enough to drain or pour. It's a nuisance. It is also very hard to see water at water-line due to moisture that accumulates inside the viewing line. After one month of use the pot cracked for no reason. That was it for me. When I returned it they said: "Not another Mr. Coffee!" I learned more about coffee pots with this one unit than I thought I could.
