First, it's a handsome machine that's easy to clean. ("No more rhymes now, I mean it....") I'm not sure if it's made of coated real metal or a plastic faux metal. Either way, it's a nice-looking machine that complements our other stainless steel appliances, and it's easy to wipe off fingerprints, etc. It also fits underneath our cabinets.
Second, in the Amazon reviews of various coffeemakers, there's a lot of talk about whether the coffeemakers produce hot coffee. Those comments weren't very helpful to me, because I never knew what the users meant by "hot." So, I've measured and quantified the temperatures for you: [a] At the time that this coffeemaker is done brewing, the coffee has consistently been about 175 degrees F. To me, that's plenty hot. [b] When the hotplate is set to M, the coffee has consistently been 160 degrees F, which is exactly the temperature at which I prefer my coffee. [c] When the hotplate is set to H, the coffee has consistently been just under 180 degrees F. [d] I haven't tried to set the hotplate to L, because the coffee would presumably be less than 160 degrees F, which isn't as hot as I'd like.
Third, the machine has produced good coffee. Much better than my Krups Aroma Control, and comparable to what you'd get at a coffee house. (I don't have a grinder, so I have my coffee pre-ground, which can affect the taste a bit.)
Fourth, I can unquestionably taste the difference between the bold setting and the regular setting. I did a little taste test using exactly the same coffee, exactly the same amount of coffee, and exactly the same amount of water. And, there's zero question that the bold setting produced noticeably bolder coffee.
Fifth, it's a user-friendly machine that's easy to set up, program, and use. The auto-brew feature, brew-pause feature, and auto-off feature have worked as advertised. Initially, the toughest part of using this machine was trying to figure out how to remove the lid from the carafe. :)
Sixth, the machine beeps five times when it's done brewing. In my view, the beep isn't unduly loud or obnoxious: It's loud enough that when I've auto programmed the machine, I can faintly hear it in our bedroom on the opposite side of the house. However, it isn't loud enough to wake our baby (whose room is directly above the machine) or freak out our cat -- and when I'm in the kitchen, the beeping hasn't yet struck me as being too annoying. That said, I'm not sure why it isn't possible to turn the beep off, and I'm not sure why they chose five beeps instead of just one, two, or three.
Seventh, the machine brews reasonably quickly. I usually brew 6 cups of coffee -- which yields two "real cups." From the time that I hit the "on" button until the fifth beep signal, it has taken about 6 minutes.
Hope this helps, and best of luck with your decision.
Update: Returned this as every pot had the same problems listed below. too $$$ for such junk coffee. I do not know WHY there are so many good reviews. After trying several coffeemakers--I went back to my 4-cup Mr. Coffee for 20 bucks--it doesn't last like they used to but they make good coffee.
1. The carafe is piping hot good thermal protection.
2. Comes with a copper self filter so you really do not need paper ones.
3. Has an adjustment for under 5 cups of coffee.
4. Has a 'Bold', and 'Reg.' brew options.
5. Has a times for autocoffee:)
1. The carafe has a THICK LIP that makes pouring the last of the coffee out IMPOSSIBLE without taking off the entire thermos top and nearly holding it UPSIDE DOWN.
2. NO 'get a cup before it finishes' option:(
3. Loses a LOT of water--nearly half+ cup evaporates.
4. NOT nearly as 'fast' as I thought. It seems to go thru cycles--quiet and then steamy, then quiet--almost like a old time percolator:)
5. It is NOT a quiet brewer!
6. IT KEEPS RETURNING TO REGULAR BREW SO THE COFFEE IS NOT BOLD!!! Have not figured out WHY.
UPDATE: RETURNED THIS as no matter what we tried, it would NOT do Bold coffee--kept re-setting itself to regular!!!*
The only thing I could question is the claim of brewing 25% faster. That's a subjective measurement. 25% faster than what -- the previous Cruisinart model? I have used a Bunn coffeemaker for so many years and got used to how quickly it brewed. There were no fancy anything features on it -- just pour the water in, add the grounds and close the lid. Coffee was up in no time. This coffeemaker is slower but it's worth the wait. Coffee is smooth - not bitter or overdone. My Bunn was never this good. I love the setting for a stronger brew. That's where I keep it now.
Also, the Low, Medium, High burner setting is great. I keep it on Medium which is more than hot enough, especially right after it brews. High is ridiculously hot so if you use a lot of creamer, that might be your go-to setting.
The machine came with a small supply of #4 Melitta paper filters and when I ran out I just put the grounds into the basket (as directed). Coffee comes out the same (just the tiniest bit of sentiment at the bottom of the cup). It's a little messier to rinse out the basket completely, but I like the "green" aspect of not using paper filters.
My carafe drips just a bit toward the end of pouring a cup, but I think that's from the condensation that forms on the inside of the lid escaping down the side of the carafe at the end of the pour. I'm not sure. When I pour without the lid, there is no drip. It's a minor inconvenience. All coffee carafes seem to drip a little. The Bunn carafe was much worse.
There was a minor power outage right after I programmed the machine. I thought, oh darn, I'll have to reset everything. But the settings held. Apparently they will hold for up to a minute, which was clearly designed to allow you to unplug and move the machine to a new outlet, not for a long-term power failure.
This machine has a well thought-out design. All-in-all, I love this new machine.
