The BISTRO B. Over Automatic Coffeemaker showcases innovative technology by automating the popular "pour over" method. The sleek, contemporary design looks great on your counter from all angles. You can watch how your coffee brew in less than 6 minutes. Coffee maker overflows if you use too much of grind or if the reservoir is left full overnight. Kindly note the reservoir should be empty when not in use.

We replaced a Cuisinart 12 cup drip maker (do miss the two extra cups). This unit is larger than the Cuisinart, a bit of an adjustment for the counter space.
It does not have a timer or all the knobs and buttons that the Cusinart had (that we almost never used).
The Bodum uses less energy since there is no warmer and most important for us, makes better tasting coffee.
I cannot speak for how long it will last, as others mentioned, for this price you would expect a good long time. If it does fail, I hope that customer support will help resolve problems.
I tinker with stuff, so a failed solenoid I would probably attempt to fix myself, but I would not be happy if it was in the first year of ownership. We have had the Cuisinart for 4 years and a Krups for around 5 years before it (both still worked when retired).
We have had no issues with mess, leaks, overflows, or spills. It is really easy to use. We use a medium grind (probably important to not use fine grind); count to 10 in our Braun grinder.
Again, despite what someone had posted, the carafe keeps the coffee hot for more than 3 hours; at 1 hour, it is still really really hot. I will take the thermometer to it one of these day.
Regarding construction, it is basically a plastic coffee maker, so if you are expecting something heavy with metal parts, this is not it. I do wish the plastic was heavier.
It has a rather techie look, showing the hot water go through the glass pipe, visible wires soldered to the copper heater, etc. We find it appealing.
The flavor of the coffee produced is night-and-day with the Cuisinart; so smooth. It reminds me of the coffee you get at high-end restaurants or coffee houses. My wife's first comment was "It is missing the bite" which seems like the a comment that the coffee was less flavorful, but you quickly realize you are just missing the undesirable flavors. Side by side comparison, drinking the Bodum coffee then the Cuisinart coffee is like tasting a $100 cabernet and then tasting a $10 cab; there is that much difference. I think it probably has to do with the water temperature while brewing, but just speculation. Whether or not it is a real pour-over brew really makes no difference to me. I may get one of the pour-over filters and compare the coffee someday, but I don't see sacrificing the convenience of the automatic brewer.
So far, I am happy with the unit, but do think it is over-priced; it should be $150.
Update: I measured the water temp today with an electronic meat thermometer. It read 203 degrees in the "shower" that pours the water over the coffee grounds during brewing; 182 degrees (initially) in the first cup poured a few minutes after brewing completed (note: the temp of the coffee drops quickly as it sits in a ceramic cup). An hour later, the temp poured to a cup was 168 and at 3 hours 154 degrees.
4 years later - the switch that activates the brew when the carafe is put in place is failing. Took it apart and cleaned it and super glue an extention (made from a paper clip) to the end of the plastic activator for the switch. Works now, but it probably wont be reliable and I think it is time to replace,
It was certainly a mistake to buy this one. I wold not buy a Bodum product ever again based on the performance of this one. Probably less than 50 Brew Cycles through it.
Update: I just received an email from Bodum saying they are moving their production factories and will not be able to send a replacement. They said to ship the unit back to them and they will refund the purchase price, or if we don't have the unit anymore, they will give us a coupon to spend on their web site.
That review is why I bought this machine. It makes a great cup of automatic coffee. I need automatic in my life, so I'm happy, though the comments on that review demonstrate many detractors to this concept. I drink at least 40oz per day, and have been for at least 20 years, so maybe I'm not a connoisseur, but I do know coffee. The device is pricey and a bit gimmicky, but the coffee tastes great. No burning on a hot plate since the carafe is insulated. No bitter or paper taste. Smooth flavor. The machine is made of plastic, but this feels more modular and deliberate than cheap. The one touch button is also great. I wake up, load it up, push start, and then go get ready for the day -- a perfect cup of coffee awaits when I'm ready to walk out the door. I've only used it for a couple weeks, so we shall see about the power complaints made in other reviews.
