Love my Waring Coffeemaker,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Waring CMS120 Professional 12 Cup Programmable Coffeemaker, Black and Stainless Steel (Kitchen)I am extremely pleased with my Waring Pro Coffeemaker. So pleased, I purchased one for my mother also...and she loves hers. I insist on a cone filter but found that most coffee makers have the flat kind. I wanted a viewable water level indicator. And I wanted a good hot cup of coffee. The waring does all this and more. I love that the basket holding the filter will not open unless you press the release button. That's a wonderful improvement over my last coffeemaker which had a habit of the basket swinging open during brewing. The sleek look fits right in with my kitchen decor. I also like the blue backlight on the timer window.
The alarm that sounds when the coffee is ready is really not that loud, contrary to what some others have stated. I find it welcoming since I start my coffeemaker and then go about my schedule getting ready for work. The three beeps tells me I can come get my hot cup now. (The volume level of the beeps is about the same as a microwave) It's also nice to know it will shut off after 2 hours though I usually pour my coffee into a thermos almost immediately after brewing and shut it off myself.
I looked at DOZENS of coffeemakers in seven stores and shopped online at Amazon, reading tons of descriptions before buying this coffeemaker. I am SO glad I chose this one.
