This is the worst coffee pot/single pod coffee maker I have ever purchased. The pot side works good enough, nothing special there. It is the single serve side that is total crap. Unless you use a very tall cup or set the cup on something to make it sit higher, it will splatter all over. It also has a tendency to not flow all the water through the single serve pod. It will, I guess, overflow the pod and then the water spreads all over the bottom and leaks all around the cup with about two thirds in the stream that actually make it to the cup. Last Cusinart anything I purchase.
