First, let me say do not hesitate buying this maker. It makes a great cup of coffee. It has the cone style gold filter - no need to buy filters. The only issue for me is the small water reservoir area makes it difficult to pour in the last bit of water. Now pay attention - their specifications are wrong. It is not 6.5" high. It is 13.5" high. It does not have 12 - 14 cups. It is 4-12 cups. It does have stop and serve, you can get coffee during brewing.
This coffee maker is very difficult to pour the water into reservoir as it is narrow opening at back of machine . Directions say use carafe as no other measuring device provided. The lid to reservoir does not open backward far enough, coupled w/narrow opening, to let one easily pour water and totally empty carafe. Also results in spillage of water. Poor design
It works great. I drink a lot of coffee and have for a long time. I have no complaints with this model. It looks great and does not take up excessive countertop area. Well made.
