I've had this coffee maker for a few months. It's awful!! 5 times now I have walked out to coffee everywhere on my counter because the holes between the lid of the pot and the machine are not aligned right or something. Doesn't matter how little or much coffee grinds I put in or how I position the pot, it's constantly overflowing everywhere! I have wasted a ton of coffee remaking it and talk about an aggravating ordeal first thing in the morning!! Unfortunately my return window closed so I can't get my money back. It's going to goodwill!!!!
