I bought this coffee maker mainly because you can pour the water in the front. Its very easy to see how much water you put in because the water gauge is very easy to see and read. Also the coffee and filter are added in the front. I gave it 4 stars only because the coffee filter holder is a little bit of a pain to get in and out. Other than that its convienient to use and its great. It has pour and pause and can brew regular or bold brew and also a half of a pot. Im sure you'd like it.
This is the worst coffee maker I've ever used there's always grounds in the coffee and all its good for is brewing coffee once it's brewed it shuts off after two hours how many drink 12 cups in two hours if you want coffee you have to warm it on the stove OR push power on every one hour fiftyfive minutes
This is my first programmable coffee maker and am so glad I bought it! The first night I had it I programmed it to start 5 minutes before I got up and it was so nice waking up and not having to start and wait for coffee! If you like hot coffee this is the one for you. I never realized that my last coffee maker didn't make HOT coffee! So far I'm totally impressed. I love it!
