Please do not buy this product.

When you remove the carafe from under the basket, water leaks out from under the main filter basket and onto the bottom plate.

The replacement stopped working after three months.

All I want is a good cup of coffee. When our Braun coffeemaker stopped working I went on-line to Amazon to look for a new machine with a thermal carafe. I read far too many reviews and every product seemed to have more negative reviews than I like to see. Common complaints were: coffee not hot enough, coffee maker and/or carafe spills too easily, and machine stopped working. So I had to go to a real store - several stores in fact - and see these coffeemakers for myself. I ended up with this Calphalon HE100CMT coffee maker, which at the time I bought it had only one Amazon review.

Inspecting the display models, I found that the construction of this Calphalon was noticeably better than the other coffee makers in its price range. Instead of plastic made to look like metal this has a real metal shell (which I'll admit shows fingerprints readily). The hinged covers for the brewing basket and water reservoir seemed more rugged and of a higher quality than the other units on the shelves. So I brought the Calphalon home.

I think coffee maker engineers have quite a challenge making thermal carafes that keep coffee hot. My wife, who would prefer a glass carafe on a hot plate, finds the coffee temperature from the Calphalon's thermal carafe acceptable only because I pre-warm the carafe and her coffee mug with hot water. Compared to our simple old Braun thermal carafe, this Calphalon carafe has a spring-loaded button in its lid to keep heat in once the carafe is removed from the coffee maker, and gaskets on the screw-on lid. I'm not sure this makes much real difference in the temperature but this design very nearly made me return the Calphalon to the store.

Have you ever read the reviews on ANY coffee maker? Check them out on any brand and you'll find the same complaints. Most of these are user error. Let's start with the biggie, coffee leaks all over the countertop when brewing. Older coffee makers shot the water over the grounds in the filter with a single stream of water. New units transfer the water with something resembling a shower head. If you put a paper filter in the unit and it isn't perfectly placed, the heated water will fold the paper filter over and water will leak everywhere. You don't need to concern yourself with this problem on this unit as it comes with a gold, metal filter. Don't use paper filters. Besides that, the gold filter saves you money.

I bought his unit because it has a metal, thermal carafe. Glass carafes break. Units with glass carafes have plate type heaters to keep the coffee warm. This causes the water in the coffee to evaporate rendering the coffee horrible in a short period of time. With the thermal carafe the coffee is kept warm for hours and you can take the carafe to the dinner table or desk in your office. The next common complaint is about the tops on all the thermal carafes. In order for the coffee to remain warm in the thermal carafe, the lid must fit securely. People are not careful in putting the lid on the carafe and strip the threads on the lid. When the threads become stripped, the lid will leak. When you screw on the lid, make sure that it screws on evenly. You won't have any problems.

This unit brews 10 cups in about 2 minutes. It's smokin' fast. It also has several brewing modes, bold, 1-4 cups and a combination of both bold and 1-4 cups. When you set the timer for auto brewing, the mode you have set does not show in the display.

The pros:

- good looking machine - lit display is especially nice
- fairly well priced
- makes good tasting coffee that is quite hot
- carafe keeps coffee hotter than most similar carafes
- controls easy to use

The cons:
- if you prefer a paper filter (and we do) - it can be hard to place it in basket such that it doesn't fall over and make a mess with grounds all over the place and coffee not right (and basket full of messy leaking liquid)
- the stop drip feature seems to work worse than most (ours doesn't seem to stop anything)
- machine is heavy - hard to slide around the counter
- produces a lot of steam so you really can't have it right under a counter

We loved our old Cuisinart with thermal carafe (a style not made anymore) but this machine seems to make better, hotter coffee that stays hotter longer. When the filter flops over though (which is does sometimes despite what I think is careful positioning) - it makes a terrible mess. We never had this problem with our old machine.

All in all - a decent machine with a few flaws.

We bought this unit at an outlet store, one of those window displays that has you stop and step back to get a good second look. What caught us was the looks of it and secondly after scanning over the box how it seemed like it was so worth the money with all of it's features and the nice display and craftsmenship. However, and this is why reviews I feel are so important, when we got the unit back home to look up and see what we saves (since we only paid $50 for it), we came across the several bad reviews here on Amazon. Needless to say I was a bit let down since I thought it made outstanding coffee. But I figured I'd give it a few months and rate it after using it, so here i am today shopping on amazon like yourself and decided to write this review to bias why i feel these amazon reviews dopped us into a poor confidence in this coffee maker as i feel this is entirely contrary to my experience.
Personally let me start to say that I'm baffled at why so many people rated this unit so poorly. It's been rock solid now for 4 months now, making coffee everday, sometimes twice a day. To go into why I think makes these other review so poor, I'm going to pro and con my thoughts on it here in the following.

Pro's
- Flavor and Rate of Brewing - I like the fact that it brews at a higher heat and extremely fast. The Vantage of doing so is better flavor in your cup of coffee. Having used Chemex Branded Cofee Makers before (you could consider them as primitive coffee brewing because it's all by hand), but coming from a Chemex, I learned that flavor (outside of grind selection and grind size) is mostly in the brewing temperature, rate of brewing and filtration media. I feel Calphalon nailed this down perfectly!
