I have had this coffee maker a few months now - since summer 2017. I like the concept of a combination coffee machine for ground coffee and the use of Pods. Several cons on this machine: When you use the Single Serve side (Pods), you have to put paper towel down next to the coffee machine as it splashes coffee all over the countertop. Additionally on the brewer side of the coffee pot, I am constantly having to deal with the red "clean the machine". First off, we use filtered water in the machine and this clean light comes on once a week. Really? Also, it is a small opening reservoir to pour water into the brewing side so you have to be careful when pouring. Other than those items listed, we like the machine. Just hope it lasts.
