I purchased this item because of the good inital reviews however, I have just received my replacement coffeemaker and it has the same problem as the first one I received.

Look at the picture of the Coffeemaker. Do you see the metal plate that covers the buttons? That plate slides down and makes the buttons stick. You are unable to turn the coffeemaker on/off, press the up/down & timer buttons because of it.

Additionally, the original coffeemaker failed to make coffee as programmed about every other time it was set?

I would steer clear of this item. It's great when you can get it to work but because of the obvious engineering defects (see other reviews with the same problem)it is more of a hassle than it's worth; especially at the current price.

I guess all the time and effort into getting a coffeemaker to tell the weather made the designers forget about basic functionality!

WHY WHY WHY didn't I listen to the reviews? I guess I was excited about the "coolness" of this product.

I cleaned the maker 2 times as instructed. Let machine cool over night. Grinded and brewed my Starbuck French Roast, poured a cup, replaced carafe, saw message on screen ...something like "NBT short" (DEFECT?) then went back to weather screen. This had turned the warming plate off (which will only stay on for 1 hour after brewing). I tried to turn warming plate back on... which requires the ON/OFF button which won't work because it thinks you want to brew more, and when there's no water, it tells you that and won't turn on. SO you can not turn the warming plate on after it turns itself off without brewing more coffee!

I did find the coffee was plenty strong enough, though. I like strong French Roast coffee.

Looks: Plastic looked cheap, but stainless steel was ok. Overall ok looks.

I bet I can buy 2 separate pieces for the coffee maker and weather station for less money! Guess I won't buy a Melitta again!

Amazon shipped to me super quick - literally next day (must have been in the warehouse right down the street). However, now I guess I have to pay for the shipping both back and forth. So much for super saver shipping. I should have bought it at Target for slightly more, I could have returned it for no loss of $.

This coffeemaker is really great. I'm always running late in the morning and now I don't have to worry about waiting to catch the weather portion of the daily news. I can run out the door with my coffee and know if I need to grab an umbrella or warmer coat. I just wish I could get one for my cottage in the North Woods (coverage isn't everywhere).

All in all I would definitely recommend this for those who like a great cup of coffee with an added bonus!

The coffee pot came with the down and timer buttons stucked together. Sent it back and received replacement quickly. It was great when it worked, after the 3rd day it didn't come on as programed and the down button got stuck again. The weather display was neat, too bad it didn't work out. I think there is a design fault on the machine. But I have to say Amazon has great customer service, we received our replacement very fast.

I had a Melitta MEMB1B for a few years and loved the coffee and machine. When it finally started leaking too much, I replaced it with the "smart" mill and brew. Smart machine maybe, but I was a stupid idiot for buying it (and paying WAAAAY more than my original wonderful Melitta. After only 3 or 4 weeks, the plastic posts on the carafe lid broke off. After about 1 1/2 months the weather and everything else stopped working, giving me error messages that something was not functioning and no info could be obtained. After 3 months, I turned it on, and....nothing. It won't brew.

AVOID this machine like the plague. I wrote to Melitta and no answer. I threw it in the trash.

Was originally concerned about the looks/quality of the unit from the pic, but it looks much better once you get it out of the box. The grinder works very well, easy to clean (vs some reviews of competitors products).

It's a bit pricey, and I'm concerned about MSN's dedication for the weather info- but I guess we'll see how long it lasts. Even if it doesn't, it won't detract from the great coffee this thing makes- just a bit of the "wow" factor!

Recieved as a gift from my parents. Made 2 pots of coffee before the machine broke. The down button got stuck (seems this has happened to others) making the machine unusable. I will try the melitta grind and brew without the weather because the buttons are different and hopefully won't stick. Also the reviews for that machine are great, and it is about half the price of this one.

This review concurs with many reviews that the electronic functions of this coffee maker has fundamental flaws. The major flaw with this coffee maker is that it does not hold the settings if it loses the FM data signal. If the signal is lost the pot does not know what time it is and will not automatically brew coffee using the timer. We live in an area that has the FM radio signal, but the pot constantly loses the signal resetting the pot. I have been unsuccessful in making a pot of coffee using the timer mode.

Overall the weather functions are interesting, the pot makes a good cup of coffee, but I want a pot that makes the coffee automatically in the morning. I have returned this coffee maker for one with a simple timer.
