Seriously: I turned the machine off and went to another room, then I started hearing something like a steam melt down in my kitchen. The thing was overheating! So I unplugged it. Not too freaked, I had another bad cup of coffee a few days later. After the cup brewed - and quite rapidly thank you - I opened the top - BAM! coffee exploded everywhere. There was too much pressure and I shouldn't have released it. Sometimes the light that tells you it's ready or not blinks wildly and then it won't work. We've had this for 2 weeks now and it has such a termperment and behaves so erratically - such an odd piece - we're starting to personify it and give it a name. The coffee isn't good. I've had the Sesneo or whatever at my GF's and it's SOOOO much better. Don't expect creme on the Melitta - not even working models give it.
