PROS: Well packed. Nicely finished, coming in 9 various colors. Mine is a very vibrant glossy red. It has a good concise manual that you'll need to keep handy for several unique functions. This model has the clock you can set for programmed brewing at a selected time and also has the a two-hour shut off timer that counts down how much time is left before it does an auto shutdown. There is no way to disable the auto-shut off and it works whether the brew cycle is started manually or automatically. Unique useful functions include 3 variable brew strengths for regular, bold and gourmet strength brews, a special brew cycle setting to make small runs of 4 cups or less and there is a "CLEAN" cycle which they suggest you run monthly. None of these unique features are on the SWITCH model and are only on the one with the timer. The "pause & serve" function on mine works better than any I've had before with no drips at all. Apparently taking a que from Bill Gates' Windows, to turn it off manually press and hold the START button for a moment. I usually make coffee manually, but I still appreciate the auto shut off function. If you don't like the auto shut off (and some people don't) the fully manual switch model with no clock stays on constantly till you shut it off, however the switch model lacks some of the other features like cleaning cycle, brew strength selection and the special 1-4 cup cycle on the programmable timer model.Read more ›

In the box you get the coffee maker itself -- note that they come in happy colors, so you can match your kitchen decor, or maybe even your iPhone. There is also a 12-cup glass carafe, a measuring spoon, and this is a wonderful idea -- a permanent coffee filter, a removable filter basket, and an instruction manual.
The controls are fairly intuitive, though note that the Start button acts as power. You can select between three different coffee brewing strengths, and of course you can program the coffee maker to brew coffee at a future time, or right away.
The unit also as a deep-clean feature and an autoshutoff of the hotplate after 2 hours.
Making coffee is straightforward--fill reservoir with water, put the filter into the basket, put coffee into the filter, select your brewing strength, and push start.
If I had to complain about anything, I'd say that because it takes about 10 minutes to brew a full pot of coffee, I'd sure like a beep or something to let me know when it's done.
That nitpick is counterbalanced though by the fact that after there about two cups of coffee have been brewed, you can pull the carafe out, pour yourself some coffee, and put the carafe back to finish brewing the rest of the pot.
That's a winner in my book.
In the video review you can see the coffee maker and how to use it in more detail.
Thanks for reading and watching!
There are some extra features with this coffee maker. It is programmable to set-up your coffee to brew 24 hours ahead of time, or the night before and awake to a lovely pot brewed and ready for you. Also, you may adjust the brew strength to regular, gourmet or bold roast. Choosing the bold, which is my personal favorite, takes a bit more time, although the taste is certainly worth it. You may pour a cup while it is still brewing after there is about 2 - 3 cups in the carafe without any spillage onto the warming plate. There is an automatic stop while filling your cup so no leaks. Built in is a keep hot time of 2 hours. Along with the automatic shutoff, I will push the 'start' button again - after 2 hours sometimes - if the pot is still pretty full. There is included into the programmable buttons mentioned below, an automatic cleaning feature which can be used if you wish to sanitize your unit monthly.
The top of this stylish unit lifts up to fill with water towards the back. It has a clearly visible water level marker, in white, on the back also clearly showing how far to fill for the number of cups you prefer, up to 12.Read more ›
