I don't know where all this negativity is coming from, but the one we have has been running well over a year now. It is Nov 30th, 2016, and I just brerwed my third pot today. It brews strong the way I like it when I choose that setting. Cleaning it is a bit of a pain, but what coffee pot isn't? The beep is nice when it's done when I'm in the other room. Would buy again.
I got one of these for Christmas, and ot stopped working in 4 months, I purchased another one, and has already stopped working. 2 in a year is ridiculous.
I bought this a month ago in all black and exchanged the first one after 3 days at the store due to it leaking. After a couple weeks with the new one we felt it was working fine and threw out the receipt and the box. I have it set on delay so that when we get up it is ready. Everyday this week it has leaked coffee during the brewing and half of the coffee doesn't even make it into the carafe but runs down the sides of it onto the warming plate and burning and then over flows onto my counter. I have had to spend my mornings cleaning counters and scrubbing burnt coffee off the warming plate. I no longer have my receipt and the we are well past the 14 day exchanged period for the store where we purchased it. I'm very disappointed as we have never had problems with Mr. Coffee before.
