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
Was half asleep making coffee and broke my coffee pot, needed one in a hurry and remembered I had a Sears gift card, went online and found this one on sale plus instant cash rebate got it at a great discount price and shipped to my front door in just two days. I can get coffee ready the night before and set timer for the next morning to automatically make my coffee!!! I will never have to worry about making coffee first thing in the morning or may break coffee pot again!!!thanks a lot Sears!!!
We gave this as a gift so I can't attest to how it works !
Replaced more that I had purchased a few years back. This is excellent coffee maker. We enjoy using it every morning.
is the best
I got this one because it had decent ratings, looked good and was reasonably priced.
The coffee it makes is what I expect from a drip coffee maker, no complaints. I don't care for the gold filter, so I used paper filters.
I did have a few issues with the maker, but I put up with them while it worked. There's not much room for pouring the water into the tank, so it's easy to spill. You can't pour the last 1/2 a cup of water out of the carafe, so I would have to empty it in the sink. The labels on the buttons are hard to read.
It would likely be a 4 star rating, except the make stopped working after about 18 months. It just beeps 5 times, and doesn't heat. I tried getting it replaced under the 2 year warranty, but it's impossible. I tried in a sears store first, and most of them told me to talk to someone else. The last person said if I got it from sears.com, I had to do the warranty via sears.com. Everyone I talk to says I need to call someone else.
